Hi there! My name is Al. Decided to go on Accutane because usually the pictures that I post everywhere are full of blemish fixes and filters, and I don't want that anymore. I want to post pictures where I am NOT full of make-up, or full of scars or even full of photoshop. I am 28 years old, I stay in sunny South-Africa, and this will be my foto logbook of my treatment, up until the very last scar and pimple has been removed. I am on the generic version of Ruacutane, called Acnetane, and my Derm started me on 50mg a day, for the next 2 months. I have stocked up on a lather lotion, on a body cleanse gentle enough for my skin, and Vaseline. A lot of Vaseline. I am super excited to see the end result, and can't wait for my new face! Let the journey begin!
side effects (10 mg a day):
-slightly dry, itchy skin
-few pimples, but idk if it's the fact that i stopped taking birth control pills for a month and it gave me breakouts or because of iso starting to work.
Acne Progression; Pre Accutane Pictures. I will upload more as time goes on.
I have been on an antibiotic and a topical twice now, and the one picture is how clear my skin was from Epiduo, however I was on that for a year and a half and decided to call it quits. Started breaking out again and decided to finally go to an actual derm. I have now been on a new topical and antibiotic and my oh my, it has been worse then before I started, and has been like this since beginning of June. After 2 1/2 months of torture and seeing now results, decided earlier this week to go on Accutane, so in less the 30 days my journey to clear skin and the end of absolute misery will begin.
