accutane decreases chances of outgrowing acne

Recommended Posts

i read in another forum that accutane decreases one's chance of outgrowing acne in the future... like for instance, sometimes the acne returns for some people after accutane... i read in that forum, that he/she will probably never outgrow acne as an adult because accutane screwed up their body system/skin functions etc. have you heard anything similar? that really sucks.

99% not true. thats not an accurate calculation but there is no science for that conclusion, at least i havent read anything to suggest that is the case.

most relapse cases acne comes back only slightly.

sometimes all together.

40-60% of first time accutane users are cured, 90% are guaranteed a 4 year remission.

i think 2% have some remaining side effects like dry lips and sore joints and were mild in each case.

those are great odds.
