Does Accutane Shrink Cysts Faster?

Okay, I had 1 normal pimple and one hard lump under the skin thats been there for about 2 months and they both just 2 days ago formed into cysts. It might have been from the accutane's initial breakout that I thought was over or they were just time bombs. The only side effects I have is chapped lips, even then its very mild. Although the oil production has pretty much ceased maybe 90%, my face isn't dry or flakey at all. So will accutane actually help the cysts heal faster or are they gonna stay on my face for 3 months like all the other cysts I get?

I go to the derm the 30th for my monthly visit and he will probably inject them but by then its too late for the cortisone to work. I've found that the cortisone shots only work real well if the cyst or pimple is inflamed. Most likley by then, the cysts will be there...but not inflamed. Just hard visible lumps that are painless.
