The main objective of this pinned thread is so that all of the Accutane users have an opportunity to post their Accutane before and after pictures in order to enable easier viewing by other members. We are hoping that this thread will facilitate locating the before and after photos, as well as alleviate some of the difficulties associated with the screening process in the original gallery.


1. Post your before and after Accutane photos in ascending order.

2. Write a one sentence description explaining how many mg of Accutane you were taking and the
length of time.

3. No discussions should occur in this thread.

“... as the moon lingers a moment over the bitterroots, before its descent into the invisible, my mind is filled with song. I find I am humming softly; not to the music, but something else; some place else; a place remembered; a field of grass where no one seemed to have been; except a deer; and the memory is strengthened by the feeling of you, dancing in my awkward arms.â€

I was on 40mg of accutane for 6 weeks then on 60mg for 5months. I was taking no other medication and did nothing special to my skin other than take my make-up off with soap and I used eucerine moisturiser morning and night.

Mid-tane - I was on holiday and it sucked so bad...

The day I finished tane;

Im quite impressed with the improvement and it was worth the pain and money all the way.

Before Starting:

About 2 months

About 4 Months

Finish (5 months)

First month I was on 40mg.
Second month 80mg.
Third 80mg then switched to 60mg.
Fourth 80mg.
Fifth 80mg.

I stopped a month early because my triglys were at a whopping 498 up from 98 in the beginning.
Not perfect. But better.

Update: If you don't clear up totally kiddies don't give up hope. It took me a couple extra months and some high quality vitamins before I finally quit getting the occasional cyst. Now I'm doing great (::knocks on wood:smile.gif with only the occasional whitehead. I still use 2.5 BP most nights though.

My Regimen

40mg isotretanoin daily
Came off isotretanoin due to feeling like a cabbage, going for it holistically.

Jog half an hour each day to destress and to get oxygen levels flowing and blood pumping.

Morning - cleanse with clearasil 3 in 1 for sensitive skin
5 fruits and veg a day - or best to my ability to do this
********avoid HYDROGENATED FATS********
Supplements - Milk Thistle// Omega 3 & 6 fish oil capsules, cod liver oil // every other day, B5& B Complex//
emu oil - GOD SEND has made my red marks and scars fade

Night time - Cleanse using warm water... little bit of differin on spot prone areas (stress just tiny bit) and cetaphil moisturiser
Every few days - Benzyl peroxide on spot prone areas (helps oxygenate skin - stopping the "environments" for acne vulgaris forming)

The first two photos I was on 40mg (for two weeks). After the third week, I started 80mg and have been on that dose ever since. The photos start from Dec 31st, 07 to Jan 26th, 08.

I started Accutane on the 22nd of December 2008.

Note: Some of the photos I'm wearing either no foundation or some. No concealer.

My accutane log

天若无雨 地上无伞
思念西湖边 杨柳飞雪堆烟
茫茫人海 心无岸
修炼一千年 一万年也无怨
心若不安 痛能看见
泪淹没视线 化火焰烧红天
剪不断 理还乱前缘

Hi everybody!

Oh it's so long when I first read this topic and now I'm writing to it to shere this!

Wanted to share my experience and of course its results! PM if you have any questions!
Although I'm not happy for the red marks this drug has dramatically left, I uploaded these pics for to show Accutane's job. I think this redness will subside a little more and so my pores might get a little smaller (from nose pic I think you understand at least)

I HAD body acne but it was gone before I even noticed it being disappearing! It was superb.

I started to use this drug January 17th 2008 and I was most likely in this same situation already in mid of May (5 months ago!) but slowly to reach the cumulative dosage (Ended to get 131mg/kg) I stopped to use this drug October 12th 2008 being whole course on 30mg a day.

These pics aren't from the day one; these are from March 11th 2008





These are from mid of May:





And these are from October 24th 2008 biggrin.gif




Nose gasp.gif :


After this whole process, I'm more than happy to start this course and hope this will last and acne won't bother me anymore. This was a success. I know these marks (maybe the lightning make it look less bad as it is now) will heal in time and I might, someday, look fabulous! : P

Btw, I have had even a girlfriend this summer, lasted about 4months but that was it.. It was a shame.. Now everyone is calling me as a ladies' man (or what ever you call it) because there is so many girls fall in love with me (no, this is not funny! Those are my friends! I can handle one, but...)

If you still think is it worth it, it is! Low dose (as you can say I had) course is great; just dry lips and dry skin but nothing else! : P
