Extended length of course-- advice anyone?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I just went to see the derm yesterday and he told me that the acne is stubborn and I'll most likely have to be on tane for longer than the intial 20 weeks. Did anyone else experience this? Also at 15 weeks I still have lots of those underneath the surface bumps in my cheeks--- will this ever go away?

I did a 6 month course of accutane even though I was clear by the 15th month. My derm and I agreed to do a longer course based on my age and not wanting to have to repeat a course.

I'd look into facials by someone who specializes in problem skin. I had monthly extraction facials during my entire course.
