Low Dose Accutane (10mg/day): Day 55  Only one cystic acne that got popped during shower (still taking so long to get dried up).   Few small ones come out but they disappear in 1-2 days. A lot of left over red/brown spots.

Low Dose Accutane / TCA Cross Update (Photo)

Day 28. Basically the same, more dryness. All pimples from last update still on my face with new pimples but I noticed they are being dried a bit faster. They still take forever to get dried up though. Going to go get extracted AGAIN tomorrow. I got extracted last Friday.. yet there so much more to extract tomorrow yoohoo! Few days ago, I woke up with extreme itchiness on both my hands (it literally woke me up at 12:30pm) and I could not sleep for a long time because of this extreme itchines

Day 21: Low Dose Accutane / TCA Cross (Photos)

This week, I took 10mg/every other day: - Most of extracted ones left me red scars (got extracted last week from clinic); my doctor said they won't be       scars.. but.. meh... most of them left me scars..  - 1-2, 5-6 new active acne on right, left side respectively  - Little dry lip - Acnes taking forever to get dried up..  I certainly experienced  more severe hair loss when I was taking normal dose (1st course) than low dose and  I  can definitely tell the side effects are reduced.

Day 14 (Low Dose Accutane / TCA Cross)

So I finally met Dr. Ngai. It was actually very satisfying visit. I got every active acnes extracted by this device that makes some weird sound. I think over 30 acnes got extracted...  Dr. Ngai recommended me to continue take 10mg / everyday telling me initial break out happens regardless and it will be settled within 1-2 months. So I guess I will taking 10mg/ every other day and maybe increase it to everyday later on.  Dr. Ngai also spot treated me with 40% and 80% of TCA. I was expecting

Low Dose Accutane day 11

I think 10mg/day or every other day is definitely too much for me. For past 2 weeks, I got over 30 active acnes or more.. literally.. some got dried up and fell off, some just stay on my face and never come to the head, and I get at least 1-2 new acne every day. I am meeting my Dr this Thursday, until then, I think I should better stop taking Accutane. My new job starts next Monday so I must manage these active acnes first.. if these active ones got settled I am thinking about taking 10mg twice

Low Dose Accutane / TCA Cross / Subcision / Scar Revision

Hi guys, I am writing this to help and to get helped by people who are suffering from acne (and scars) like me.. I am 26 years old Asian guy and I live in Canada. I have taken a full regular dose Accutane course about 2 years ago. I was cleared up after taking Accutane for about 7months and stayed acne free for about 6 months but it left me a lot of severe acne scars.. After 6 months, it started breaking out again, nothing really serious though. Acne was pretty much moderate and under c
