acne, accutane, regimen
Well, I decided to do a post about my progress post accutane. I have had my treatment almost 3 years ago. While on it, I had the most wonderful skin, even though i've had pigmentation all over my face. After I finished my course, exactly in 1 month, my preaccutane skin returned, it was depressing and bad. To top it off my hair was falling like I've had a...

accutane hair loss
My new entry will be short and happy: Hairloss post accutane completely stopped and new hairs that grow are as strong and thick as before!:) It took 9 months to recover from the effect of accutane. Just a few months back my new hairs grew very, very thin but now its back to what it was before accutane! I am so happy and relieved. Do not lose hope if you s...

It's been past 5 months since my hair started falling out at the end of accutane treatment. I am still losing hair but not much any more. I also see new hair growing and it grows curly now, not wavy but proper curly! My natural hair is very thick and straight asian type but after accutane and major hair loss I am now growing a very curly hair. I do not mi...

Post Accutane Horror, Regimen Update

Posted by londoncat8, 30 March 2013 · 636 views

It has been 2 weeks since I started using the regimen, to treat what I can only describe as a nuclear burst of acne on my face, post accutane. And it works! I thought that these horrible clusters of puss infused pimples in fancy groups of 6 would take months to go but they are gone! I use regimen as suggested but decided that PB in a smaller dose is rathe...

3 Months Post Accutane

Posted by londoncat8, 09 February 2013 · 661 views

It has been a bit difficult because of the hair loss but it is getting much better now. I got all kind of blood work done to determine what was causing the hair loss and nothing came up as abnormal. I decided to take biotin 5000mcg per day. As of now, it is safe to say the hair loss is improving and I can see new hair growing back as before. My skin looks...

And Hello Side Effects!:) (2 Months Post Accutane)

Posted by londoncat8, 19 December 2012 · 894 views

I am not too surprised with the side effect but I thought I would share my plan of tackling it:)
Before I begin I must admit that my skin is as good as it never has been and it feels unreal. My oil returned, although not at all as bad as before, 2 weeks after I stopped accutane. At the moment I have to deal with some hair loss(nothing dramatic, had much...

This Might Be The End:)

It has been a long 8 months but it was worth it. For the last 3 months I have been on 20mg and I this is my last week of the 8 month course. I do not have any active acne on my face. I do have red pigmentation marks and some scarring which is more visible now due to my skin being thinner (as a result of accutane use). I use organic face...

End Of Month 6, 2 More To Go. Curious Notes.

Posted by londoncat8, 22 August 2012 · 372 views

Ok, for the last 2,5 months I did not have a single break out of anything on my face. Accutane does really work well for me. I am still on reduced dose of 20mg per day and will remain so until the end of the treatment. Over the years I have tried different diet changes and alterations (including dairy free and gluten free diet) ending up being vegetarian....

5 Months Of Accutane Finished 3 More To Go

Posted by londoncat8, 03 August 2012 · 826 views

I have seen my derm yesterday and was told I will have to go through 3 more months of accutane, 20mg per day. Even though my skin looks very good, apart from pigmentation, I need to reach the correct cumulative dose for my weight. I am not bothered by that and would rather carry on with the low dose than quit it now. I was given epaderm ointment for my dry...
