ACCUTANE HAS PAID OFF!!!!!

17/Male.

This makes my SECOND time taking Accutane.

I took 40mg daily + vitamin E last time & I am now doing the same.

The doctor just moved me up to 80mg daily because I am now on my 5th month.

The first time it cleared my skin from the time I went off of the pill to exactly 6 months later.

This time it was a much worse initial breakout, but in the end it has paid off.

LOOK AT MY PICTURES AT THE BEG. AND THEN AT MONTH FIVE.

I CAN ONLY IMAGINE WHAT IT IS GOING TO LOOK LIKE WHEN I'M FINISHED! :)

Wow!!!!! You look great!!!! Congratulations!! I see your IB happened in month 2, was that your only IB or did you experience other time periods of breakouts?? It appears that in your first month you started clearing after only the first few pills, anyway, congratulations again, I only hope that I have as much success as you've experienced!!

Thank you so much!

Sadly, I had many bad breakouts throughout the whole thing. =/

It really sucks, but I just want to prove to everyone that it works =]

Good luck with your course!!!!!!!!

Can´t believe that's your second course of accutane, because it really doesn't look like a severe acne but w.e.

Did you even try a hollistic regimen before accutane???

Btw your skin looks amazing, and hopefully stays that way.

It was very severe. Pictures do not show that well. I had it all over my back and chest and face.

Yes, the doctor had given me face prescriptions before I took both courses. Those don't work worth a crap.

I also am on my second trial of Accutane. I started getting acne very young. I was still in FIFTH GRADE. So when I took Accutane for the first time, I was only thirteen. Now I am seventeen and I am in month..hmm..almost five! But I will be taking it for just another seven weeks!

My second trial is doing amazing, but I hope both of our faces stay clear. Good luck! [:dance:

Congrats mate :dance:

what moisturiser are you using???

I've been using doublebase but it breaks me out so I'm going to give Dermalogica Intensive Moisture Balance a try.

Nothing special. Just some soap and water! =]

I would just like to let everyone know that my skin hasn't got worse since I ended my course. It looks even better than the pictures in Month 5! =) I will post pictures soon =)

Just curious... why were you taking vitamin E? What if for the acne?

My doctor said it was for the dry skin.

Got damn! Nice! And not even a scar to show for. I truly am jealous.

Thank you! :)

I have been clear almost 5 months now. I rarely ever get a pimple. I look the same as the last set of pictures that I posted. Having clear skin has given me so much confidence. I am truely a whole different person. I am way more outgoing. I wanted to check back in, because most people don't after they are clear from acne. There is no point, right? Wrong. There is a point. I remember all those people that helped me during my course and I want to help others!

I unfortunately did end up with a few scars. They are not very noticable, but in the end I am just thankful to God for having clear skin.

If anyone needs any help, please send me a message or just reply here. :)

PS - The first time that I took Accutane, the acne came back exactly 6 months after I stopped taking it. I about ready to hit that 6 month mark again for the second time. I am a little scared, but hopefully my prayers will be answered.

God bless each and everyone of you!

wow, your skin looks amazing! It didn't look very severe to start with, but I'll take your word for it. I'm about to start Accutane in less than a month, and your pictures are very inspiring. It doesn't look like you had any post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation...lucky you! Thanks for posting!
