Will Accutane get rid of clogged pores and blackheads?

I am currently on accutane, and I think the biggest insecurity I have are my huge pores on my nose and my black heads. Will Accutane clear them up?

Maybe after a couple of months or three more they will look smaller. I've reduced the dosage of accutane and planning on being on a low dose regime for many months.

I had all comedonal acne (little clogged pores), oops, why did I write 'had'? I still do. Also, I'm on accutane and I have been now for 4.5 months.

So far no improvement.

Not only that, but I have cystic acne now.

I would advise alternative treatments but I also took accutane two other times in my life and those times it was AWESOME, like worked in two weeks and I had perfect skin for the entire treatment and up to like a year or two after...

Varies.

Do other stuff first though, thats what i'd suggest, im gonna stick it out cuz im already so far into it...

Accutane has been pushing up the dirt that is in my pores on my nose...so I think it will get rid of them over time. :)

I'm now on 20mg/day (weigh 55kg) and yeah its cleared up my clogged pores a LOT. Blackhheads are gone and pores appear smaller and less clogged. From reading peoples responses this seems to vary from person to person though

good luck!

I suggest you get really good at manually clearing out a tube of gunk out of your pore..

Accutane will clear it, but it takes a long time. My cystic acne left after month 1, but my pores purged the entire course so it takes a long ass time but yes it will/.

I used a have a lot of blackheads on my nose, after a couple of weeks on accutane the blackheads had become slightly raised as if they were being pushed, eventually one by one they just dissapeared. I dont have a blackhead on my nose at all now, but Im still on accutane, so who knows. It might comes back after I finish my course

hey there! i randomly came across your blog but wanted to encourage you! I went through a really bad acne time when I was a junior in highschool so i was 17 as well. It was honestly one of the most trying times of my life. Like you, I tried everything it seemed. Finally, after months of suffering I did accutane. My side affects were not near as bad as yours though. In fact literally as soon as I started taking them they got better. However, I think my acne was worse than yours though. (not to make light of yours just saying!!) Anyways though, hang in there its only going to get better, and by looking at your pictures I can tell a difference. It is indeed totally worth all the crap ya gotta go through. My face hardly has any scarring and I'll get a cystic zit here and there... but not like the ones I used to get. I'll show you a picture of my face now, i dont have any on my computer of then but i will get one and show ya. I am a christian too and I grew so much through that time. I look back now and I am so thankful I went through that... it was so humbling and made me realize that true beauty is on the inside anyways. Listen to Jinny Owen's song "If You Want Me To" or Barlow Girl "Mirror" Keep persevering through this! Life is hard thats forsure :)
