Long-term remission

Recommended Posts

I read on this site...http://www.acne.ca/acne_treatment_oral.html

-->For severe acne, it cures approximately 35-38 percent of patients after one course of treatment.

-->70 percent of the people who take Accutane® experience long-term remission.

When they say long-term remission, do they mean clearance for at least a year and the percentage is really so low for cure?

I guarantee you that most relapse, remission, and cure percentages from articles and info websites are wrong and misleading. Your acne will start coming out again in low amounts about 6 months after your course is over and it will worsen with time, although not as bad as before treatment. The people that got "cured" would have had reduced acne even without accutane, and it probably is a result of changed lifestyle.
