breakout post accutane?

Recommended Posts

If I've gotten clear with accutane, do I still risk getting an initial breakout using retinoids? I want to try and see if it improves the appearance of my scars, but am not sure because more acne would lead to more scars (I scar very easily).

If there's nothing left clogged within your pores then there's nothing to purge.

You're welcome! Remember to go slow with the retinoids until your skin gets used to it. You may not break out, but you could still get irritated (dry or red) if you start out too fast. I'm glad you cleared up. :) Congratulations.
