There is no test called acne profile test. Usually few hormonal tests are done for resistant acne in females to rule out hormonal imbalances and may be those are called collectively as acne profile test by some labs. It is better to reconfirm the exact names of your blood tests from your dermatologist. But those tests are done in females usually. Wait for your dermatologist's confirmation.
