Someone else's IB post on here got me thinking, what is the reason (chemical?) behind the accutane IB?

Your body is beginning to see levels of Vitamin A that it hasn't seen before. How does this result in acne that is temporarily worse than what you had pre-accutane? Does the iso (vitamin A) physically cause the skin to push out the bacteria and sebum plugs that are way down in the skin and wouldn't have come out otherwise?
