Hello everyone! I am starting my first course of Accutane tomorrow, November 23 and I am so excited!
A little background--you all know how it is. I tried a dozen oral antibiotics, ProActiv, Clindamycin, Retin-A, birth control, supplements, diet changes, oil cleansing, BenzaClin, etc, etc. I went to my first dermatologist when I was 17, and they suggested Accutane then but I put it off because of how severe it is. Now, 5 years later, I'm hoping that it was worth the wait. My acne is mostly around my chin and my cheeks, and because of an awful (I know, I know…) habit I have of picking them I have a fair bit of scarring as well.
The final straw really came when two people came in to work (I work at a homeless day shelter) and told me I needed to try ProActive for my face and that I could look so pretty if I just had clear skin. Well, let's hope that this won't happen again.
Tomorow's the day! I'll post more information tomorrow when I know it
