theory with accutane and hyperpigmentation

Recommended Posts

just want to know peoples thoughts about this.

i have a lot of what i think is hyperpigmentation, may skin colour on my face is a mixture of yellows and browns instead of one even tone, plus i get really oily skin aswell. its annoying because the oil magnifys all the discolourarion and large pores on my face. now we pretty much know that accutane does nothing for hyperpigmentation while you have acne(as the accutane is healling the acne). but would accutane help the hyperpigmentation if you went on it again X amount of time later. the reason why i ask is that accutane re-news the skin, it increase cell turn over and so new skin is formed alot quicker(peeling skin), surely that would remove hyperpigmentation.
