Is This Hyper Pigmentation?

28 January 2015 - 07:20 AM

I use to have really bad acne last year then I went onto roaccutane for like 4 and half months. Does it look like this is hyper pigmentation? I'm thinking about asking for a chemical peel when I see my dermatologist. (I've been off roaccutane for 2 months). 


Any advice would be greatly appreciated. 



Is Eating Eggs With Accutane Okay?

15 July 2014 - 03:41 PM

I've read a lot of stuff that really contradicts itself about eating eggs while on accutane. I have 3 eggs a day in the morning (scrambled) which is when I take my accutane. (40mg). 


Do you think It'll be fine? I'm currently on day 6. People say something about it rises cholesterol levels but I read that this guy ate 22 eggs a day and his cholesterol was fine. Should I just continue as I am and see what happens when I have my blood test in about 5 weeks? (I eat them because they're tasty, good for protein and natural fat which I read was good to take accutane with).






Accutime! 20/m - Accutane Log

10 July 2014 - 08:48 AM

I'm SOOOOOOO excited to finally be making this accutane log, after snooping the forum for many months and reading dozens of progress threads, the time has finally came to start my own journey. I went to see my dermatologist for the 1st time yesterday and I told him I wanted to try accutane after numerous other drugs have failed, he thought it was the best option and took a blood test the same day. Earlier I got my blood results so I can officially start it! (He prescribed it yesterday but told me to wait till today). I heard some people have to wait like a month before starting, talk about awesome dermatologist or what. 


So my starting dosage is 40mg a day for the first 6 weeks, and then he wants to double it. I'll provide pictures throughout the process once my phone is unlocked to really see the transformation. (Hopefully). I've stocked up on moisturisers so here goes, let's hope the odds are in my favour!


If anyone wishes to ask me anything, please feel free.

How Long Does Accutane Take To Work?

07 May 2014 - 09:19 AM

I'm just curious (I'm not actually on accutane yet) but how long does it normally take to start working?


I've read a lot of progress logs for facial acne but not really any for back acne.


Has anyone taken accutane for back acne/can shed some light please?
