I was on it for 9 months and still wasn't completely clear when I came off, I continued to clear afterwards though.

My scars didn't become less noticeable... in actual fact they started to become more noticeable because for the first time I was seeing what lurked underneath all the acne. But, at least it put an end to any new scars forming... so in that respect it was definately worth it. There's no guarentee that it will make your scars look any better, but I suppose in theory the increased skin shedding/peeling may make them look smoother and less noticeable if you're lucky.

Good luck with your course! It really is a waiting game, you just have to be extremely patient... some people clear relatively quickly, others take much longer to see a significant result.

About Month 3 I started getting cleat and Month 5 and forward I didn't get a single breakout.

Although I got 1-2 pretty big breakouts once my course was over but I don't know what that was about because every since I haven't gotten a breakout. Maybe a pimple or something, but not a major breakout.

When I first started my course I was becming clear almost instantaniously. Then around the day 45 - 50 mark I had a pretty decent break out. But I also contribute that to living an unhealthy lifestyle around that time. Had a relapse and went binge drinking, smoking and just whylling out. I think it all depends on your dosage, weight, genetics, and lifestyle that sets the standard for how quick your going to clear...
