Probably starting accutane next week

Recommended Posts

Hey, so I just got done seeing my derm and it looks like I'm getting put on accutane, not sure what dose yet. Barring any problems with my blood tests, I'll be starting next week.

Now here's the thing, my skin looks similar to the second month 4 picture in this collage, on both cheeks. I'm kind of surprised I've been prescribed something as powerful as accutane. I mean, I still think it's bad and he said he could see a scar or two forming, that's why he wanted to get started straight away, but yeah, I wasn't expecting this at all.

But anyway, do you think I have a chance of getting clearer faster than normal? He said it's likely I'll have a 4 month dose. I eat healthily, have a good cleansing routine etc etc. I'm going to ask my derm all this next week, but I just wanted the opinions of anyone with accutane experience. Thanks.

Accutane does work for sure, but the time of seeing the improvements depends upon the person. i am on my day 6 and i am already seeing my face getting clean but some people don't see any improvements till 2-3 months....

anyway good luck for everything....
