I've been reading a lot of accutane logs and such, and it seems like people who are on low doses of Accutane(~20mg) clear at the same rate as higher doses(>40mg). It seems to me that higher doses doesn't result in clearing any faster and that the only difference is low dosing requires a longer treatment to get accumulated dose. Do you guys think this is true? Or that it just depends on severity and the person?

Acne vulgaris from puberty. Roaccutane from 21.
Vbeam laser damaged my skin at 39

Scars and made me break out again.
Don't ever use this laser!!

Or any really unless its a 

Dermatologist or Plastic Surgeon

that is performing the procedure.
Only way to avoid scarring and breakout was roaccutane.
Started Roaccutane August 2012 Finished Roaccutane in June 2013.

It depends mostly on the person. I went through a course of 30 mg / day and I cleared up completely in 5 months, the usual time to clear up. While others need 80 mg or like me who just needed 30mg, the thing about the doses is how much your body can handle. If you face gets really dry and all the side effects and pro's are present even on a low dose, there is no need to bump up the dosage.
