Face cleared up, should I continue using my medications?

Recommended Posts

I had horrible cystic acne for almost a year. Then my derm gave me retin-a-micro and duac. It worked wonderfully. After 2 months now, I don't have a single active pimple and my scars have disappeared sooo much! **touch wood**

Anyway, I am still using my medications since I still have some scars left. But...should I continue or stop my medication after my acne/scars problem is completely solved?

I agree with the ppl above. Don't stop what you do. Think of it as a safety net.

Congrats on your clear face though :angel:
