How did caratin come to be?

Healthcare in the United States is, in many respects, broken – for both patients and their doctors. Dermatology is no exception.

There is no question that if you have skin concerns, the best care you can get is from a dermatologist. But, most zip codes in the United States don’t have one. IF you find one, there’s an average 3-month wait for an appointment, assuming your primary care doctor will refer you. When you do finally see the dermatologist, you'll have about 5 minutes.

Expect to pay at least $100 - $200 as a copay and a few hundred more at the pharmacy.

We founded Caratin to provide convenient access to high-impact, prescription dermatology treatment. To us, this means:

  • Prescription treatment delivered to your door. 
  • No three-month wait for an appointment. 
  • No referrals.
  • No pricey deductibles or co-pays. 

No stress. Just an effective, customized care that evolves with you.
