9 Months After Accutane

1,077 views

It has been almost nine months since I took my last accutane pill. I have not had a single breakout in nearly a year. My skin is beautiful -- every now an again I will get a single, very small zit that I couldn't care less about.

None of the side effects lasted for me. My lips and skin are no longer dry, and (unfortunately) my hair no longer stays clean for days at a time. I did not have any health problems, mental or physical, while on accutane, and I don't have any now. I am a healthy, happy, acne-free girl.

My scarring was never bad and is fading with time. Sometimes after I work out I can see the scars pretty clearly around my chin, but in my day to day life I don't notice any -- and I frequently go out without make up, even to my office or to meet friends after work.

In a nutshell, I am still really happy that I went on accutane. It was not a decision I made lightly and it was not an easy six months, but it was the right choice for me smile.png

I attached a few pictures. The first two are of my breakout last summer (2012), the third is my chin this summer (2013). blogentry-178540-0-07609500-1377144342.jblogentry-178540-0-03360600-1377144357.jblogentry-178540-0-24654100-1377144371.j
