During using isotretinoin in ultra low dose, my skin was very clean and smooth , my friends were very amazing, they always asked me How I could do that. I can confidence in my skin in that time but after stop taking isotretinoin, it became worst. I guess I didn't use enoungh cumulative dose, which is about 120 mg/kg, and this cause the acne back. So this time I decide to use isotretinoin as long as possible, about 2 years in plan. Hope low dosing would minimize the side effects on my body. Oh, and I want to ask you a question: The ultra low dosing you using now is prescribed by your doctor or not? And did your doctor agree this?

no more flakes, breakouts, dryness, and still no oiliness. I thought that the heavy cream that I just glob on my face at night would clog my pores...but it does not. i had to do it to get my it's moisture back.
people who low dose like me should be very careful not to get flaky and dry, as this could irritate the skin and cause breakouts. it's about balance, even when u are fighting oily skin.

Do you have any acne scar? And do you plan any scar treatment method? I have some acne scars and I plan to try the roller method but collagen in my skin was decreased due to isotretinoin. Do you have any experience about acne scar?

no scars. I am lucky that my skin never got any acne scars or pits like I have seen others get. skin heals quickly (thank god).

So interesting that dryness is just as bad as oiliness when it comes to acne. I think we could all learn a good lesson about being nicer to our skin from your experience.

hey yunchang i am korean too. and i have exactly the same skin type as you.
are you planning to take isotretinoin forever ? i mean low dose 10mg/WEEK (1x capsule a week)?
i want to start a ultra low dose too, but i am afraid that i will mess up your body in the long run. Did your dermatologist say what the max. years you can take it until it becomes dangerous ??
