Length of Time for Results with Treatment

Recommended Posts

Obviously there is no one size fits all treatment/cure for acne. So my question is how long is one supposed to wait to determine if their particular routine works?

I've heard that you are supposed to stay on it for 6-8 weeks because that is how long it takes for a completely new layer of skin to form, blah blah blah.

But, what about people who, for instance, have been on retinoids or Accutane multiple times and the treatment doesn't work until the second or third time?

If you go using that logic, then any treatment that appears to be working, might eventually work if you used it indefinitely.
