after accutane

Recommended Posts

i had serious cystic acne for about a year and a half and then i went on accutane for 5 months. it completely beat the acne. i have now been off of it for 6 weeks but my cheeks are still very red. they are also very easily irritated. theres a lot of scarring but what im most concerned about is the redness. not only does my entire face have a light red tint but there are bright red spots all over my cheeks where pimples and cysts used to be that wont go away. how long will i have to wait? is there anything i can do?

My face is still red even after being off Accutane about a year and half now i think. But it's not really "redness" more hyper pigmentation , they say it fades over time but im seeking treatment for mine.

the redness could be dryness/irritation, for me drinking enough water helps. If you've noticed your skin being ashy try to stay hydrated. Other than that the red marks from cystic acne will piss you off they take forever to fade
