Done with Accutane

Recommended Posts

I was on tane for 8 months and finished 2 weeks ago. Some time during the course my skin became a lot thinner and as a result my old marks which I had before the course became more prominent than before. I also got a few new ones while on tane. Now it's been 2 weeks since I took the last pill and weirdly enough my face started drying dramatically just a few days before I ended the course and it still goes on, although not quite as strongly as a few days ago. I heard the skin is supposed to get thicker after you finish and that the marks would become less visible too, but my skin doesn't seem to know that. :think: Or have I just misunderstood something and there is still accutane in my system?

Accutane stays in your system for about six months, so that might be why your skin is still dry and thin. Giving it time might help. I'm in my third month and I have some red marks, and I'm hoping they fade in time too. A few of my friends have taken it, and though I haven't kept track carefully, they don't really seem to have marks (it's been about half a year for one of them).
