12th day on Accutane



So I’ve struggled with mild acne for 13 years now. I’ve tried everything under the sun. I finally went to see a dermatologist after all these years and the first thing he said to me was “try a low dose of Accutane”. 

Now trust me, I’ve done my fair share of research about this ‘miracle drug’. I was very apprehensive at first due to all of the side effects, especially the liver damage! 

However, after much deliberation I’m now on my 12th day of Accutane. The results have been pretty drastic and no initial breakout yet! My dermatologist said I wouldn’t get one, but I’m not quite sure I believe him. Still have a few tiny ones popping up but nothing major. 

Here are some progress shots, embarrassing as it is! 

Hope ro keep you updated!
