accutane for cystic acne on back

Recommended Posts

Finishing my 4 month of accutane for face acne and cystic backne and my back is finally starting to show progress. I don't really get anymore cysts but i still have a couple actives. The back takes a bit longer to clear up as my face cleared right away.

I was on Accutane about 7 or 8 years ago and it completely cleared my skin, including cystic back acne and chest acne...however those results didn't last forever. It took about 4 or 5 months to see substantial results ( as I recall). About 3 or 4 years ago it came back worse than before (along with the facial acne) and I haven't been able to get the same results since :( I would go back on accutane but for women It's pretty risky if you plan on getting pregnant in the future (That's a whole different story.)
