Help Me With My Red Marks Pleeeeeease! Pictures Included.

5 posts in this topic

Hey everyone im about half through my 3rd month of accutane. Total of 6 months on 60mgs a day. Im pretty much clear from acne. I will get a white head every once in a while but no biggy. But I absolutely hate the way my face looks. I cant stand these redmarks on my face. They may just be old acne still healing or whatever, but do you guys think this will continue to fade while im on accutane? or do you think this is what my face will look like when im finished? Also is there anything I can do now for the red marks and blotchyness while still on accutane?

I appreciate any feedback possible. Here are current and 3 weeks into my course. (BAD IB)

Though I don't have firsthand advice with Accutane, I have read on the forums that you can't do much while on Accutane, because your skin is a lot more sensitive. You just need to stick it out and give it some time. I've also read that the higher amount of Accutane you take, the less chance of relapse. The redness will go away eventually and then you can conquer the world!

I agree with sasound. I'm on my first week of isotretinoin and my skin is already sensitive. Your skin will feel like its really badly sun burnt, if it already isn't if you use topicals that encourage skin renewal. Just RAW. Basically, to get rid of red marks you need to wait for all that infected skin to regenerate and it could take anywhere from 3 months - year. On a brighter note, I've seen a lot of isotretinoin before and afters and everyone's red marks seem to have faded. Are you shedding skin from the drug? This should speed up the process of your red marks fading.

I'm on accutane and I'm using lemon juice , protein mask , and when my AVC arrives I will use that too , and I will replace my moisturize with Bio/Jojoba/Emu oil.

Oh and , and really don't think your face will look like this when you will be done , I mean really I have seen a lots of Before and After pictures and they didin't have any red marks on the "after" sections , cuz many people here and everywhere will tell you that how accutane works really depends of the person, but my guess is that when you take accutane and let's say you are half you can't have lots of zits you can have little or none but , BUT there are people who only see improvment on the 5-6.

But I still think that time is the best tratmament for red marks , but if you want to cut 1-2 mouths , try ACV/lemon juice/protein mask/oils.I would not reccomend using baking soda on accutane that really will hurt your skin , but as for the lemon juice people say it can burn but I just put it under my moisturize and I don't feel a thing, my red marks are so much horrible ..
