Type of Acne that best responds to Accutane

Just wondering what the thoughts are on this. I'm a 41 year old female, and my derm had suggested accutane.

Most of my acne is not on my face at this age. When I was younger I had a lot more on my face, but now its mostly my neck and chest. I get some on my chin, but its really not bad. And I have some on my back, but less than when I was younger. Just want to make sure that accutane normally will clear up neck/chest/bacne. I think my acne is moderate (though mild on back and face).

If I went on accutane, and had an IB, would it still only be on my face, or in all areas I have acne?
