 Took my last dose today! My skin still isn't perfect--I have a few bumps here and there still. My temples cleared up a little but but they still have bumps. I'm told accutane continues to work after you finish so I'm hoping for the best. I have finals for the next week so expect some photos after that.

My first reply on acne.org! :D haha whatever... My acne is like yours except that my skin looks pretty red and I have sort of a combination of comedonal/cysti acne...gosh, so horrible. However I know that comedonal acne is so stubborn and I sadly accepted the fact that it might never go away. Aaand I am also really tempetd to squeeze and squeeze...so I feel kind of related o your case. Thanks for giving me hope, you look great!  I hope my comedones go away too! eusa_pray.gif

Just wondering if you finished your course yet? I'm still on Accutane and its not clear yet but almost! I'm just finishing my 5th month! I hope my comodones don't come back when I get off the Accutane!

I have terrible comedonal acne as well. Since the 5th grade. My derms made it out as though accutane was only for severe cystic acne. You've given me so much hope. Thank you for such a thorough documentation of your journey. I hope for the best once again.

Retinoids are amazing for noninflammatory acne. Tazorac gel should help you if it comes back after quitting accutane.

I know this post was made a couple of years ago, but I just want to say I had the same type of acne as you. Not as much on the cheeks but more chin and mouth area. What helped SIGNIFICANTLY was going for facials. If you find a good esthetician, they will extract the comedones correctly. The key is to extract the entire comedone so it won't come back. It's sad to say that squeezing this type of acne (the right way) can sometimes help more than some medications and topicals. And it's quicker! If anyone has never tried going for facials and have tried hundreds of other treatments, I recommend this alternative!

Thank you for the tip! I have severe comedonal acne on my cheeks, temples and chin (a bit more severe than the OP, I have pictures in my gallery of my semi-improved skin) and I'm currently using .05% tretinoin cream. I was actually considering seeing an esthetician before I was prescribed tretinoin, but I'll definitely try it now!
