initial breakout on accutane

Is it possible to have a really good result within the first month on accutane with only a little initial breakout, and then for the breakouts to increase? I am on week 6 and my breakouts are worse than they were a few weeks ago. Thanks!!

I am afraid of that...i still waiting to start with acutane because initial breakout...

I will go to a facial before...maybe breakout will not be so bad.

I am starting Accutane in about 2 weeks. I have been getting weekly facials for the past 2 weeks and will continue to do so until I start Accutane (and will keep them up after I start, though the process of my facials will surely change due to the upcoming skin dryness).

My acne, concentrated on my chin, lower cheeks and jawline, has really responded to the facials. I think I will go into the Accutane program on a much better platform than if I had not done the facials. As well, I think continuing the facials will speed up my healing process.

Has anyone out there incorporated oxygen facials into their acne routine? I am finding it to be quite a good addition to my routine.

Yeah, anything is possible. Maybe you have deeper acne going on. Its ok, it just means that accutane is doing its job! Hang in there!

The initial breakout may not even be that bad. My breakouts improved right away during that first month. Month 2 was what I guess you can refer to as my initial breakout. I got a few on my lower chin and neck area, which was not a usual breakout spot for me. Even so, these breakouts were much milder than what I might normally have. In month 3, I have no acne, not even a hint of a tiny blemish, and its been this way for weeks. I am 100% clear.
