post-tane: three weeks and oil is BACK

Recommended Posts

i really dont want to try accutane again 'cause it wasnt a pleasant experience, but my skin is back to being oily! i mean inside my ears and all. it's becming grosss. that's considering the fact that i was clear for two months while on accutane and my skin wasnt dry then. I havent started breaking out yet.

how come others continue to have dry skin for months and even years after accutane? I mean, what s the point of a cumulative dose then.

Have you tried B5 or home light therapy? B5 works well for oil production for some and home light therapy is known to make the skin dryer, altho no one knows how. Give this article a read.

“Dr. Russell showed that LED red-blue therapy gave

significantly better results than blue light, oral antibiotics,

and topical therapy,†Dr. Chu said. “Results with

the LED included 81% reduction in lesion count at 12

weeks and marked reduction in pore size, with no damage

to the sebaceous gland.†Dr. Chu is head of dermatology

at Hammersmith Hospital in London.

“The rationale behind using red and blue light is that

red light has been used for many years to accelerate

healing in chronic leg ulcers and non-healing lesions,â€

Dr. Chu said. “It is thought to have an anti-inflammatory

effect and to work via cytokine induction.†How

red and blue light is used alternately reduces sebum

excretion and post treatment flare-up needs to be further

investigated, he added.

When the pore size begins to change you gradually get less oily skin, this is speakign from experience.

Although nearly all of my skin is bone dry after accutane, my nose is still oily and the lights definenetly reduced this oil.

If you try a moderate dose of B5 and combine it with red/blue light therapy i garuntee you will see good results.

thanks but yeah right. everything is a waste of time and money. If accutane is advertised to be the Mother-of-All-acne Treatments how would this light therapy be. Accutane is supreme. I hate life
