How long until REAL improvements

Recommended Posts

OK, so yesterday i went to the derm and come to find out- i only have one month left of accutane. Since i started at 80mg twice a day (and have had that dose now and to the end) but seriously, i'm not expecting SUPER AMAZING results, but the only thing it has done has cleared what happaned to me with differin gel, and i havent broken out really- but my pink marks havent faded in about 3 months!! My skin isnt that dry either, and i still get deep pimples occasionally. All in all my skin still looks like crap!

How long does it take to get at least to the "good clean clear pretty skin" people talk about after accutane?!

It is fairly common for skin to continue to improve for about 2 months after the course finishes. As far as when it will happen to you, it's hard to say because everyone is different. But red/pink marks take forever to fade so don't hold your breath on that one.
