How long purging post-accutane?

It's been about 1,5 months since I went off Accutane. I started to use Differin today, do you think I'll experience a breakout?

I doubt that you will but if you do, it probably wont be bad at all. Are you going on the differin for maitenance after Accutane or are you on it because you started to get acne again?

Sounds good, thanks. It will be mostly for maintenance, but I do get tiny bumps now and then. I'm also hoping it will do something for some enlarged/scared pores I got during my Accutane treatment, but I don't put too much faith in that.

Not doing a maitenance retinol program after any of my 3 courses of Accutane was probably my biggest mistake. I think I just got too confident after finishing each course and just didnt want to deal with anymore creams or acne medications. That is good that you are doing it. You'll see long term results from it.
