Accutane Month 3/4 ( Redness And Scarring) How Much Improvement Will I See?

Recommended Posts

Acne came out of no where for me destroying all of my confidence. Im usually a strong hearted person who can get through anything but this was the thing that destroyed me for a time. Now im on accutane and its going really well i mean i no longer get spots. Now its redness and scarring i worry about. Id like to know how bad you guys find it and how much improvement ill see. Thank you!

Not much of scarring you have on your face. Your skin seems to be good if I compare to mine. I'm also into my 4th month and full of scarring and red marks. I'm also left with some deep pits. But the marks look to be improving gradually. They were dark purple 2 months back, then turned red and now dark pink. So what I see is the marks are changing colors and will fadeout by the end of my course. :)

Ahh nice one pal :) do you have any pictures i could view because we all know where our biggest critics and yours probably arnt as bad as you think they are you know. Ohh i see so over time theyll change colour and then fizzle out. Lets just hope both of ours fizzle out quickly :)

The confidence situation is the exact same for mine, people think having acne is just life for teenagers not realising how it has effected you inside, has being on roacutane helped with the confidence in anyway? :)

Patrick, I'm doing great with my skin. No new spots for ages now. Right now, the lower back pain is a worry for me. It is really bad and intense. Other than that, my skin is absolutely fine, no dryness, no new spots.
