Many women have cleared completely with spironolactone (I am one of them), without having to change their diet.
It is a fairly mild anti-androgen drug that mutes the effects of testosterone (which creates the acne).

When i was on spiro i could eat everything i wanted. Dairy, sweets, grains everything with no problem at all. However i think that this won't be his/her first suggestion. I believe he will try first topicals and only if they don't help he will consider oral treatments.

What clears my acne:
Spironolactone 100 mg + limiting dairy
indoxyl (duac) gel + aha + baby brush for comedones.

The Derm will probably get you to try a topical such as Differin or Duac + maybe an antiobiotic.
