Finished my 4month course of Accutane, i'm clear of actives, just loads of red marks left.

I'm pretty sure my acne was being caused by oil and poor diet.

Accutane dried me up, but now i'm finished, what if my skin becomes oily again? or does the Accutane stop my skin from becoming oily in the future? How does this work?

Thanks :)

Accutane shrinks the oil glands and therefore lowers oil production. Your shrinked oil glands will stay like that for a good while. A few months, a few years, a few decades? It's different. As long as you're nice to your skin, I'd say (in MOST cases) you'll be clear of acne for YEARS (except for maybe a few pimples here and there every now and then).
