Some exciting news tonight! I have officially been on Accutane for 3 months, the results have been amazing except I'm not quite where I want to be yet. Only about 2 or three active blemishes but mostly everything is scarring. This picture on top of my back is about 1 month in the treatment, and the second was last nights. The iphone quality makes it look a lot worse than it is in person I feel. But you can tell there is a hugeee difference, agreed?
Some not so good news is the fact I lost my medicine and was off for 2.5 weeks because they wont let you get anymore until your 1 month is up. I dont really feel like that was a set back, if anything it helped very much! My rashes went away, the chapness of my lips and dry skin did as well. Now that ive been back on it, my rashes are ten times worse, not only on my hands and arms but now on my legs. the dryness is ridiculous, and ive been through 1 tube of chapstick this WEEK.
All in all I'm happy with the progress, and hope to be done with the course early may when PROM comes <3 the only thing I'm worried about is my back, because my chest is 100% CLEAR!!! (: I'm donating 12 inches of my hair in the next two weeks and it wont cover my back for prom, so im hoping the scarring will lessen enough for me to use a little make up to hide the rest of the scars.
Sorry for the quick, frantic update, I havent been on for a while and I felt one was needed. Accutane has to be one of the best choices I've ever made and I am ECSTATIC about the results its given me so far. I would reccomend it to anyone. The side affects suck but it is totalllly worth it! Ive been getting lots of compliments lately about the way my skin looks too! So good luck to the rest of you on your journey as well!(:
