I dont have a lot of info with this, so keep with me here.

How long does accutance take to really notice a difference?

Does it usually clear up your face COMPLETELY?

Some people clear more or lesss immediately, some people don't clear until the course is over, most people clear somewhere in the middle. It usually clears the skin completely with a single course, not just the face but the body as well if you have any there. Dryness varies. Some people experience extreme dryness, some people don't experience it at all but that's pretty rare. You can counteract it to a great degree by moisturizing.

without an intial breakout some people see dramatic improvement from the end of month 1/during month 2. it seems like most people see the most improvement not until at least the middle of the course - month 3,4
