Will Accutane Clear Your Closed Comodones?

3 posts in this topic

Hi guys!!

I've started my second month of Accutane and have noticed over all clearing. In the months prior to starting Accutane I noticed I was getting all these small skin coloured bumps on my cheeks and around my mouth/ chin area. I think since my skin has improved these bumps appear to look worse. I'm just wondering if anyone knows if accutane will clear these up?

Thanks!!! ;)

I am almost finished with my third month using accutane, and I believe it has definitely helped reduce the number of closed comedones on my skin (however, the process is VERY SLOW). They did become more noticeable when the inflammation from my cysts and nodules started to come down, but they are not so noticeable any more.

I developed a ton of those small, closed, skin-colored bumps all over my forehead and cheeks during my first and second month on accutane. They all cleared up by the fourth and fifth (my final) month. Even all of the annoying blackheads went away too. They'll go away, just give it time.
