Acupuncture has similar effects to drug therapy for acne, according to a Chinese systematic review. Twelve RCTs involving 1,026 participants were included. The chances of achieving a greater than 30 percent change in lesion count in the acupuncture group was found to be no different to the pharmacotherapy group, and the chances of achieving a greater than 50 percent change in lesion count in the acupuncture group was not statistically different to the pharmacotherapy group.
