Cheek Thickness on Accutane

Hey y'all =)

I've been looking at pictures from around a year ago before Accutane and I realized that one of my cheeks is getting kinda hollow while on Acctuane. It's always been SLIGHLY more hollow than the other one, but now it's quite obvious, especially in pictures and it freaks me out. Is my cheek hollowness correlated to Accutane or is it something else which I need to be worried about?

Generally, my skin is doing fine. I'm on a low-dose (20/30mg/day) so I am getting side-effects pretty late. Could this be because Accutane is "thinning" my skin? Will it go back to normal once I'm off?


Attached is the current state of my skin. I'm treating moderate acne (I used to have way more cysts and bumpy pustules/papules and other fun stuff). Opinions are welcome!
