Skin still heals slowly...

Hello, you stopped when you go bud? Which month? I am in the sixth month and still have breakthroughs on the chin and lips over forest nite (I'll be happy to answer.
Also do you have a picture in the middle of treatment? 4th-5th month somewhere?

Never give up ;)

4 months post accutane course


everythings still good! I break out more than I did right at the end of my treatment but I can hardly call it breaking out. Before my period I'll get a few little zits, barely noticeable. I was a bit worried at the end of August there because of an increase in acne but that was because of an unhealthy lifestyle and stress. I feel confident that my acne won't come back.

anyways not much else to say.

Scarring is down to about 10% left. I'd give it another month before its totally gone! Can't wait :)

I have a few ice pick scars that will probably take a nother year to really go away but I don't care.

If you are wondering wether to take accutane or not, do it! It's not worth it hiding behind acne and wasting your life away. I've had the best 6 months of my life just now.
Come to think of it it's been almost a year since starting accutane, i'm such a different person now than I was. More confident than I've ever been in my life. I am so happy to have gone through with my accutane course. there were a LOT of hard times, the lowest point in my life was a year ago in the start of my accutane treatment. I am so thankful to be past that :)

good luck to everyone fighting acne!

No sorry I doubt it will. I still have some red marks (although minimal...) almost 5 months post accutane....And my skin has always healed extremely well. I am so fortunate to have not gotten worse scarring from the severity of my acne. My derm was shocked at how well I healed.

i cannot answer that and no one else can. everyone's skin is different.

just wanted to give everyone a quick update that I just got a tattoo about 4 days ago and it's healed very well.
(I know some people have read horror stories about tattoos after accutane and all that)

Also, right after I gave my last skin update I broke out a litte bit and it scared me so much. But I changed my regiment, I was only using tea tree oil and cetaphil moisturizer on my face. I switched to those oxy acne pads for sensitive skin (I found they've always helped) and switched to the cetaphil specifically for face moisturizer. It worked very well, a week later with using this I am back to where I want to be.
