Accutane done!!!!

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I have a question. I have heard different things and wanted to know if you should use anything after completing accutane?

My son finished two weeks ago. I heard of people on Retina and other topicals. Does this help it not to return? My derm didnt tell him to do anything but wash with Citaphil. No moisturizer unless needed.

Also, the red marks are fading slowly. Should I apply moisturizer on them? Would that make them fade faster. I really dont understand that concept. How long until red marks are dramatically faded??

My advice would be to follow the derm's advice :P. Your son can always start with topicals if the acne relapses, but with accutane there is a good chance that is cured for a long time.
