Beginning To 3Rd Month (Pics!)

8 posts in this topic

So, I'm starting my 3rd month of Claravis.

First month was 40mg a day.

Jumped to 80mg a day for second month.

So far, the 80mg is starting to work (I think).

Here is a pic from day one and where I am starting month 3!

My wife says it's clearing up fast, but to me I see minimal results

What do you see?

Here is the OLD PICTURE:

It's hard to tell because of the lighting, but it does look like your back is clearing up. I think you just have a lot of hyper-pigmentation, but that will fade with time.

Sometimes treatments can take a few months before you see any real results, especially with acne that is more resistant.

What is hyperpigmentation? And yeah, I hope whatever it is fades with time lol.

hyperpigmentation is discoloration of the skin after the acne is gone. red marks purple marks etc...

Thanks! I guess I do have a bit of that? My derm hasn't mentioned it. Only thing he's mentioned is maybe sending me to a place that does laser treatment for scars. Does Accutane help the hyperpigmentation at all or does it make it more noticable?

Also, I don't know what that scar looking thing is on the upper left part of my back. Looks like a scar from a cyst maybe? It's under the red inflamed one about 2 inches down. Looks like a deflated blister maybe?

I don't think accutane does anything to help it. The marks do fade, but it usually takes a few months before your skin looks completely even again.

OK cool, thanks for the info. So does anyone know if I should be more clear by now or if this is average for a complete 2 months?
