So I swallowed my last pill about a week ago. My derm saw me a couple weeks ago and told me that I've cleared up enough that I don't need any more accutane! Hooray!

I'm a little concerned, only because I still get the odd pimple (not enough that I would ever complain) and I worry that by stopping the accutane, my skin will go back to being the way it was before, which would be my worst nightmare.

Anyhow, in the week I've been off, there's been no regression of side effects, but they were never that intense to begin with, so I can't say I'm concerned.

I'm still fighting red marks, can't get anything done about it for 4 months until my skin toughens back up.

What about the blue light? Still using it? Was it a spa treatment or hand held you were using? I have a lightstim blue led for home that works amazing but stopped using it when I started accutane bc it said not to use led on tane...now I'm curios...I' miss that thing !

Wow, sorry it took me so long to see these! I was originally supposed to take 4 months of accutane, but my derm decided to give me an extra month.

I did blu-light three times a week for two weeks in December, then once in January and once in February. I was actually surprised that the derm prescribed it to me alongside accutane as well! Honestly, I don't think it really helped my skin, but I guess I'll never know.
