Accutane Week 11 Mid-Month 3

Posted by musicvisuals, 29 April 2014 · 299 views

Since I last posted maybe a week ago I have gotten about 3-4 new pimples but they're generally small now and are already almost gone. My face is almost clear of active pimples at the moment(thank the heavens) but that sounds better than it looks. Every bit of acne I have got since about day 40 to now has left a mark, and I've gotten alot of acne since then. So although I am getting pretty excited about the improvement I definielty wasn't expecting this much hyperpgimentation but i know that will all fade in time, the more important factor is the frequency and the strength of the acne has visibly diminished! Accutane has been a crazy ride, you can clear up so fast but also break out again even faster... but as time passes it only gets better overall. The side effects dont bother me that much, not nearly as much as acne bothers me so Im grateful that there is a drug out there that can get the job done when nothing else could. I'm already looking forward to clearing up 100% and my marks will begin to fade then the treatment will be over and I feel like Ill be getting a second lease on life..I'll bask in the sun with my clear skin and not worry about a thing!!!
 
If your struggling on accutane month 1, 2 or 3 just know that your close and it gets better fast. As your pores shrink the oil that is living in your pores will be pushed out so just remember that its apart of the process!! Message me if you have questions!
 
 




I thought my skin was getting better and then BAM I had a massive breakout (about three big cysts) on the sensitive skin under my eye/beside my nose. I'm afraid of scaring because of the size and location...my face looks pretty damn bad right now. But I'm hopeful that things will get better!

stay positive, i know its tough when you think youll only be improving then your set back by a few weeks. im still dealing w break outs but on a smaller scale with marks from month 2 so its not all gravy for me yet either, month 2 my acne was much deeper bigger redder and frequent so your probably experiencing something similar
