Roaccutane/accutane Treatment: Week Four

Posted by EmilieSea, 01 October 2013 · 180 views

Yay, 1 month! Finally, it's over. 
So, I know I'm a few days late, but I haven't been home for a few days.
 
Last Wednesday I went to the derm, and he bumped me up 20mg, so now I'm on 60mg a day. In two weeks I'm going to move up another 10mg, so I'll be taking 70mg, which will be the highest amount I'll take during the treatment. Not much has changed apart from my lips getting about 10x drier, and I've gotten a few more breakouts. My body acne hasn't really changed, but my face is a lot smoother now, minus the breakouts.
 
My hair doesn't get as greasy anymore, and it's bloody great.
So yeah, I took these pictures today when I got out the shower. Please, excuse the eyebrows (I haven't been able to wax them, as you would know).Attached Image

thanks for the update! Good to hear your skin is smoother. I've started to notice my hair isn't so greasy either, which is a huge plus because normally, I can't go more than one day without it getting oily.

Me either! I usually have to wash my hair every day, and it's a pain in the ass. I'm thinking one day I'm going to try and go without washing my hair for as long as I can before it starts to get greasy. Is that acceptable? I don't even know anymore.
