Photos Of 7 Month Progress

16 August 2014 - 04:04 PM

So here is my before and after pics of my 6 months on accutane. It was a tough road and I still have a while before my red marks fade, but I am 100% satisfied with my results. My only qualm is that my marks look indented in certain lighting while I'm not sure if they truly are. But time heals all wounds.

1St Week Off Dkr

11 November 2013 - 12:08 PM

Hey all
Just an update as to how I'm doing off of the regimen. My face is 95% back  to normal. I still use the cleanser and moisturizer, and mix in aha at night, and breakouts have been minimal. The doc also prescribed me tretinoin gel .01% to tide me over till my derm visit in mid-December. Red marks are fading a lot faster, but I got quite a few whiteheads this week, but most are gone by now and healing.  Some new red pimples came in too, but they're going away now too.

Switching To Accutane

03 November 2013 - 08:54 PM

Hey all,
I've been doing the regimen for about three months now and have seen some great results in terms of whiteheads. However, I still get inflamed red pimples that have left more marks on my face than before I started. In addition, my face has been swolen, dry and flakey, but I have noticed a lot of people keep telling me my face is swollen as hell. I'm thinking I'm allergic to the Bp, even though I've become used to the full dosage. I've been on every antibiotic pill and every topical known to man, and none of it has helped like the Bp. Tonight I got my family's support, and I think I'm going to attempt a run at accutane. Tomorrow I'll ask my doctor, but for now I think I'll have to slowly ween myself off of dkr due to the swelling. I'd like to thank you all for the support, and I'll keep everyone posted on the topic. Thank you all

Week 2- Week 10 Photos

This is an 8 week span of my regimen experience. I'll be honest with you, I'm three months in and I see very little progress, except on my left cheek. In fact the chin and right side looks even worse than before. If it doesn't get better by month 4 then I'm sorry but it'd be ridiculous to continue
