Do you have any more or less oficcial articles that describes this kind of treatment? I want to go to my dermatologist and discuss this treatment for me. But if she doesn't want to consider it, I want to give her some articles with descriptions of experience etc.
I have one more ask: if you don't have such articles, could you please ask for them from your doctor? I think its ok for doctors to share experience even from different countries.
Thanks so much in advance!
There are quite a few sources you can pull up with testimonials about the efficacy of ultra-low dosing like this. Many of which are found on Acne.org. But the one official source I would cite is the study by Dr. Plewig. If you do a quick google search it should come up right away.
hey, just wondering if you could shed some advice! im 16 at the momemt . i was really oily and pretty bad acne. i took accutane for 12 months at 20mg a day, which completely cleared up my acne but left me with heaps of PIH. I have been off accutane for 2 months now and my face is really oily again and i am starting to get pimples everywhere... im pretty worried. i saw my derm 2 weeks ago, and she gave me retin-a to use nightly. when i saw her i didnt really have any pimples, they just started coming like right after i saw her She didnt want me to go back on accutane becuase she didnt think anything was wrong with my skin.. but now its getting really bad, should i make another appointment with her and try get accutane? or should i continue retin-a?? PLEASE HELP!
I wouldn't look to Accutane again, quite yet. Give the Retin-A some time. If you started breaking out after using the Retina-A, that is completely normal in the beginning. In terms of drug function, Retin-A is a tretinoin derivative and has much of the same resurfacing effect that Accutane has, so trust that your derm has made a logical decision here.
If after a couple months your skin is still having problems or is significantly worse, I would, no question, look into the course that I have taken.
