Will accutane really clear up my skin completly?

Recommended Posts

I get accutane august 31st and I'm really excited for that. But the one thing that really scares me is that it won't help much. The texture of my skin is really gross too. What do you think? Will I have to get any treatments after I'm done with accutane?

For some reason it wouldn't let me post the lin so just get rid of the space.

Well, what type of acne do you have? If your derma is prescribing Accutane to you at all, you must be able to benefit from it. Severe acne is what Accutane is geared towards, so if you have that or less, I'm sure it'll clear up your skin well!

It honestly depends on the person.

This is my third time on Accutane and I'm 26! I get the hormonal, stress induced, painful cystic acne.

My doc thinks that the third time around will really clear me up, somehow I think I will be the unlucky one where I will have to go through these cycles.

However, I'm trying not to worry about it anymore....It just sucks when I wash my face at night and can still see the MANY scars that were left over from my iniital breakout.
