Hi everyone 


2,5 weeks after finishing my accutane (roaccutane) threatment I can happily say that my acne is gone, and that my skin feels smooth except for some minor imperfections on my forehead but they keep improving so they'll most likely disappear soon). However there are still a lot of red marks left on my cheeks. I use and exfoliation cream (effaclar duo +) and moisurizer. How long does it take for those red marks to fade? (weeks? months? years?)

I also noticed that there are a lot of small vertical lines (wrinkles) on my forehead, is this caused by the dryness, and will it go away?


And last but not least I noticed that my nose is still more red than usual, could this still be the accutane (the other side effect like dry lips are already going away)?


Sorry for the many questions, but my happiness when the dermatologist told me that I could quit using accutane, made me forget my questions at that moment 


Thank you for reading, good luck to all people who are also on accutane!

Your skin can improve up to 8 weeks after you stop taking accutane so maybe it will fade give it time :)
