Hi, I am on my third month and I have a lot of red marks still.

Do you have any tips to get rid of them.

Did anything work for you to get rid of them, and how long did it take to get rid of them?

Thank you.

Your skin takes ages to heal on Accutane, your skin is also more red aswell so it is more noticeable. After the course they give you a cream to help the marks go away, it took about 2 months after for all marks to be completely gone.

It takes 8 to 24 months for post inflammatory hyperpigmentation to subside. You can speed up the process by undergoing a procedure called IPL (Intense pulsed light) which I am sure you had already heard of it. Remember to tell the doctor or aesthetician to lower the setting to prevent fat loss and other unwanted side effects which some patients experienced.
