Congrats on finishing your course.


How old are you?


Although Accutane is a very effective treatment, acne can return after it - especially if you are young and/or had severe acne before treatment. (If acne returns after Accutane it usually happens within 3 years, and even if it does return it typically comes back less severe.)

That's why it is important to initiate a maintenance therapy after your Accutane course.

I would recommend a topical retinoid with or without BP as well.
