Will Accutane clear chin acne?

Recommended Posts

Well I don't know, most of the gallery pics are of people with acne on the cheeks. Beleive it or not, the skin on my cheeks is like flawless and amazing, but my chin area is all nasty with pimples, and at any given time I have AT LEAST 2, BIG pimples on my forehead (at the moment I have 2 big red ones and 2 littler ones).

Will it still work?

Cuz I keep hearing chin acne is hormonal and all.

By the way, I'm a 15 year old girl whose dermatologist said could go on Accutane in a month if my current regimen fails. acne is mild-moderate...but more moderate. =P Thanks.

Yes, accutane will probably cure your chin acne.

In my experience it cured me in phases.

1) Cleared Forehead (first 3 weeks)

2) Cleared temples and jawline (4-5 weeks)

3) Cut neck acne in half (week 4-8)

4) Cleared chin of zits and whiteheads (around week 8)

5) Cleared cheeks of zits (after 10 weeks)

I'm still not totally clear, I've got two zits on my neck and one on my cheek. By week 12 I'm sure I'll be totally clear.

from my experience, acne usually starts on the chin, forehead, and nose before getting to the cheeks. i'm certain accutane will clear your acne up no matter where it is.
