Recommended Posts

SO! finally got pics gathered. sorry ladies im not a looker but here are some pics.

After vacation... depressed as all hell lol, dang acne 2008. I definately should have wore sunscreen. This vacation was during the march break and this is what I looked like after it (knew I needed to start accutane and did research).

I started accutane in November of 2008 and ended in March of 2009.

After accutane!!!

I washed my face twice a day while on accutane with spectro gel PH balanced and then moisturized like the doctor said, twice a day with Cetaphil.

Please feel free to ask me question about accutane and how much of a nightmare it was lol

let me know if the pics work. Thanks.

Your skin looks very nice after Accutane. What I like about the results is that practically everyone who's been on it looks like they've had flawless, baby-soft skin all their life, which is amazing. Was your initial breakout very bad? If you don't think you're completely clear don't worry; your skin will probably continue to improve.

I've seen lots of posters on here who haven't had 'severe' acne get Accutane, which gives me some hope for myself.

Thanks :P Your the first person to say something about my skin ever since it's started improving, family or friends never acknowledged it so I kind of felt crappy still.

My initial breakout... there wasn't one for me. I started to moisturize the first day I took accutane anticipating my skin was going to break out like crazy and it just broke out less and less each and every day.

It's been a month after accutane now for me and I get a new (very small zit, that dissapears within a day) every few days. For the last 8-10 days it's been like this.

Your skin did improve. I don't understand why you say you still have a long way to improve. I only see one pimple in your final picture. The acne cleared up.
