Mid Month 4 Accutane Clavaris ! Accutane Does Work

Well it finally happened, Im clear! Its been 3-4 weeks with very minimal acne so I guess its not 100% yet more like 95% and I still have some pretty visible pigmentation but it feels clear to me. I'm not sure if this happens to anyone else but acne has been my biggest concern/worry for along time...when I begun clearing up in the last few weeks I definitely felt awesome but all that worrying and concern definitely just didn't disappear, but it wasnt about acne anymore. I realized I had been igno

Im actually getting clear, the treatment is working! All the pimples Ive gotten in the last few weeks are really small and became whiteheads with in a day, I still have a large cyst on my neck though that hasnt really budged in a week or so. Also the red marks are pretty noticeable still but that will fade in time. If I continue to clear Im gna upload before and after pictures soon! Im very excited to see what the next few months bring!! From 15-24 I've tried everything to heal my on and off mod

Accutane Week 11 Mid-Month 3

Since I last posted maybe a week ago I have gotten about 3-4 new pimples but they're generally small now and are already almost gone. My face is almost clear of active pimples at the moment(thank the heavens) but that sounds better than it looks. Every bit of acne I have got since about day 40 to now has left a mark, and I've gotten alot of acne since then. So although I am getting pretty excited about the improvement I definielty wasn't expecting this much hyperpgimentation but i know that will

Accutane/clavaris Day 70

Hello all, it feels good to be this far into the course, especially since the last week has been pretty easy on me compared to the weeks before that. I'm going to break it down week for week like I have done before. (i started accutane with 4-5 bad cysts, although I was getting persistant moderate acne for along time, nothing ever worked after battling acne since i was 19, im 25 now) Week 1- Skin cleared rapidly - also my face turned pretty red which masked all my marks(knda nice) but fa

End Of Month 2 - Still Breaking Out But Getting There

Well after a third time of clearing on accutane last week I broke out yet again...I only have about 4 deep red active pimples but there are like 15-20 red marks which makes me look like i am pretty badly broken out. With this warm whether in NY its difficult not to be a little disappointed, I dont know why I guess I thought I'd be clear after 2 months but I've come so far and I know any week the tane could start to kick in as I've heard the 3rd month is a gamechanger for alot of accutaners. Well

Accutane Clavaris Day 55 - Clearing Week

Well month 2 finally took a turn for the better, I dont want to get all happy and jinx myself but I have only gotten 1-2 smaller pimples in the last 7 days. This has given all my other acne a change to really calm down and start to fade. I would say right now I have about 2-3 active with some red marks. I can look at myself in the mirror and not be all pissed off, its a luxury right now haha. I do realize anyday I could relapse..Ive heard of people on accutane getting clear then breaking out ove

Accutane Mid Month 2

I'm making this super quick. Its def worse than usual, maybe the worst so far on accutane..def sticking it out though i still have alot of hope its going to work, all the encouragement on here has helped alot! I've got a shoot(video) tonight at a fashion show of all places, I'm feeling okay about it though, normally would be paranoid w this many active..I'm going to look people in the eye and have confidence...its only awkward if you act awkward and they pick up on that..Ive dealt w this problem

Accutane... F**k Month 2!

Im on like day 43 and I keep getting like 1-2 new spots at least each day for the last 10 or 15 days!!!! And now the red spots/acne are adding up...I've been here before...but this time at least I can blame the tane. Im a professional cinematographer/editor and people pay "alot" for me to show up as a professional and I just feel so unprofessional with acne. When I have clear skin I even dress nicer and make sure im looking sharp but with acne im so unmotivated and feel unconfident and I HATE wh

Accutane Day 35

Continuing to break out in smaller acne, goes to white head fast...older acne pigmentation is taking longer to vanish then usual which makes it look bad. Still at the point where I hate it and im not 100% sure its even going to work but I know its a waiting game with this pill, people say the 3rd month is where the magic usually happens...well I cant wait! but I have to so I'm doing what I always do when I have acne...avoid people best I can haha

Day 30 Accutane / Clavaris

I'm glad im on day 30, I'll say that..I remember counting down the days to get on this pill felt like forever and time definitely feels like it starting to move faster now, not to fast though. I'm not one of those people that immediately cleared right up(i wish), I'm having my share of breakouts so far but at the same time It hasn't been as bad as ive seen through my tane research. Here is a breakdown so far of my experience. I went into the medication with 8 cysts, I would average 4-8 cycts at

Accutane Clavaris Day 26 -- 80 Mg

So its been about a week since I last posted. I had a really busy week and at the same time my skin was clearing up. This is what accutane has been for me as far as break outs. Day 1-5 was very clearing for me. Day 6-13 I had a bad initial break out. Day 14-24 I got very minimal acne so by day 22, 23, 24, 25 I was looking pretty good which was awesome!! Yesterday I felt another round of deep cytic bacteria invading my face. One really big deep painful one I can feel and see on my cheeck and well

Day 18 Accutane Clavaris 80Mg

Well here I am 1400 mg's into the drug that I've pondered about for years. I must say it feels good to not be taking antibiotics and not applying benzoyl peroxide and all the other shit that never worked for me. My first break out on accutaune lasted 7 days from day 6-13, I've just been dealing with that acne still and today I can look at my self in the mirror again with out feeling really bad..if you havent read my previous blogs my acne got crazy clear from day 1-5. I still def have active acn

Accutane Day 15 80Mg

I broke out from day 6 to day 13, I did not break out yesterday or today so far. So I currently have 8-9 actives cysts. These cysts turn to white heads between 3-6 days. Im praying I dont get any more acne right now because I'm already a mess and I would love for my current acne just to calm down before I get bombarded again. Besides that its the usual side effects- Dry skin, slightly pink tone-- Dry lips, I get lazy and tired sometimes, my scalp is dry and I see about 2-3 hairs on my pillow eac

Day 13 Accutane

Well I was hoping my breakouts on Accutane would be minimum but I would say its about as bad as the day I started the medicine now. It got alot better within 5 days of starting but after that I've just had pimples, whiteheads and cysts popping up. I'm still dry...dry lips skin and scalp...its itchy. I just cant wait until I'm at the point where I'm improving a little more each day. Now the days begin to slow up, its easy when you feel the pill is visibly working, its tough when you have to go th

Day 11 Accutane/clavaris

The last 3-4 days I've been getting new pimples each day, I still have all those pimples but seems to be slowing down a bit, hoping this breakout will come to an end soon! Lips still very dry, dry skin and scalp...nothing much to talk about besides that. Went to a kanye west concert last night, had some beers which gave me a headache a few hours after...wont do that again...not worth the headache.

Day 9 Accutane/clavaris 80Mg - 'the Purge'

So its begun, I'm definitely seeing signs of an initial breakout. I can tell because I usually dont get 10 whitehead/cysts on my chin area all at once lol..maybe 4 on the chin at most...not 10 lol. They start out looking like cysts, and hurt, and within 24-48 hours its a bright white head. I've already had a few come and go, Ive currently got 4 whiteheads and like 6 that are new from last night into today just on my chin area, luckily my goatee and beard covers some. One deep cyst on my forehead

Day 8 Accutane/clavaris 80Mg

On day 5 my face was practically clear, It was pretty crazy, the 8 actives I had going into accutane had shriveled up and my skin smoothed out like it never has, also its turned a few shades pinker which actually made my face one tone which helps the complexion look better. Things have changed though, since day 5 I got one big cyst on my left cheek and I noticed 3 or 4 white heads pop up around my lips/nose. After that I got 2 more cysts around my bottom lip on each side and one on my chin. Ther

Day 6 On Accutane/clavaris 80Mg

Holding up okay, not quite as excited as yesterday, still very hopeful about the months to come. I've developed one large cyst on my upper left cheek, and about 3-4 whiteheads around my nose and chin, some super tiny and one pretty visible. My face is still pink and my forehead starts to get dry if I don't keep up w the lotion. My face gets itchy and its really hard to not itch it, my lips are doing fine as long as I keep up w my chapstick/aquaphor. The acne I had pre accutane pretty much are sh

Day 5 Accutane/clavaris 80 Mg

I know its way to early to get excited but my skin is never this flat, so smoooth. No new acne so far and I look way better than I have in months...after 5 days..what?!...my face is pink but I could care less, it actually makes the pigmentation look more hidden. When I woke up I noticed like 10 of my hairs on the pillow, I have thick hair and this happens when my scalp gets dry and I itch to much, definitely concerning. If this continues to get worse and worse I'll have to get my dosage lowered

Day 4 Accutane/clavaris

Im in a bit of a hurry so Im going to try and make this quick. I am experiencing side effects, dry skin, not that dry yet, I never use lotion because my skin in naturally oily so today I will begin using lotion after I wash my face, I have the slightest change of skin color, just a tad pinker. I also noticed last night after I came in from the cold that my lips were whitish, they were just chapped so Im keeping up with chapstick medicated and may bring out the aquaphor soon, I also have a dry th

Day 2 On Accutane 80Mg

Not to much to say here on day 2(730pm) as far as side effects but I figured I'd post again just so you guys know I will be keeping up to date on this. I was in a good mood today, not because my skin looked better or worse but I actually had hope, which I havent in awhile. Almost everything is exactly the same but I did just notice an awkward large long deep cyct in the middle of my left cheek. This is a little bit unusual for me because mine are always circular, it is not very red yet at all an

Day 1 On Accutane/claravis

Hey guys, I figured since there are not to many men(24, almost 25) keeping an accutane log I'd start one. Here is a little background about me and what led me to this day. My history with acne: I had acne in high school but it wasnt to bad, at age 19 I began getting cystic acne and its never let up. Some seasons its mild when I'm lucky, usually its moderate which means about 4-8 active, and occasionally it would get severe but it would never leave. I've tried every single antibiotic and t
