after two years, back to tane... :-/

Recommended Posts

There are probably a lot of new people on here now. I went on tane 2 years ago and the results were great...for a little while...now things are back to the way they were, and I think I'm going to go on it again, while I still have my parents' insurance for one more year. Last time I was on it for only four months, so this time hopefully it will be a little lower dose, for a couple more months. I have to wait until December to see my derm, and will be continuing my trial with Finacea until then. It helps, but I haven't seen much fading of the hyperpigmentation.

I have moderate acne, which isn't as bad as it used to be, but my big problem is hyperpigmentation. I'm hoping this second round of tane will clear it up again, and then I can be really really sure to use Finacea at the slightest hint of an outbreak. I'm 23 now, so hopefully things will be clear soon anyway...

i don't think accutane will get rid of the hyperpigmentation.

if you speak to your dermatologist, he'll probably prescribe you a acid peel.

It doesn't get rid of it. It helps though, because of all the peeling. Basically what I want is clear skin again, so I can use Finacea religiously after I finish. I didn't know about Finacea last time, and it's been helping way better than the stupid retinoids I used after the first time.
