My before & after pictures of my roaccutane treatment!

Recommended Posts

Hello all, i was on roaccutane, 20 mg a day, for 3 & half months. The treatment worked very very well, although the only downside was the dry skin & lips etc, i also developed a very mild dermatitis on my face & hands, but i was prescribed cream for my hands, as for my face i was told to just moisturise regularly & once the course was complete & my moisture balance returned to normal the redness & coulouring would fade, which it has :). So to anybody looking to go on this medication, i would reccomend it, the upsides outweigh the minor side effects, here are my pictures for proof. YAY!

to answer your question, i don't scar easily, but i do scar, i have 3 little tiny red spots on my chin where i had larger pimples, the reason they are not visible in the picture is because the flash whites them out, even face to face the only way to notice them is if you actually take the time to look for them if that makes sense & when i do get pimples, as in whiteheads, they wont just "dissapear", what happens is the head drys out over 2 - 3 days & then just falls away by itself while i am in the shower etc, but one thing i never did while on this treatment was pop a pimple!

Daniel, I'm on my 22 day. My derm said I'm only going on it for 14 weeks 16 weeks max. I thought 5 months was minimum. You only took it for 3 months, I'm afraid it wont work for me, or it will come back faster or something. Please reply ty.
