Approaching Month 6



Approaching 6 months... I cannot believe that I have been on Accutane for almost 6 months. When I look back at my progress, I cannot believe the transformation it has done to my face. From having a bunch of painful cysts and many whiteheads to now having NO BREAKOUTS! If anything, I have 1 minimal whitehead that surfaces and extracts on its own/ very easily. 

September 13, 2017 TO December 1, 2017!

Still another 2 months... According to my dermatologist, he still wants to keep me on my accutane for another 2 months. However I believe when I go to see him this month, he will decrease it to 1 more month considering I am having minimal breakouts. 

Maintain Skin Regimen... I have continued the exact same skin regimen and have not changed any products. 

Post Hyperpigmentation & Minimal Scarring... I realize that now the acne is all gone, I am left with some post acne redness and minimal surface scarring in which my dermatologist said it can take some time to fade. He also mentioned that once I come off accutane, the redness should decrease a lot considering the medication can create redness. I plan to do some facials (haven't decided what yet) to help with the scarring, but won't be doing anything until being off accutane for at least 3 months. This is because my skin will need to revitalize and get used to being off the medication. I hope I don't relapse! 




Wowww for the progress. I envy your happiness right now. Everything looks so great afterall. Mine is still....not so good. Waiting for your next update. Wish you the best. Heal soon.
