Finishing Accutane But Still Looks Like I Have Acne?

Recommended Posts

I'm male and 17 years old.

I've been on 40 mg a day for the past 6 months and finish the course next week.

Will my skin continue to get better, or is this the best it can be? When my other friends finished their course they had completely clear skin, but I still have lots of red marks (almost looks like spots under skin) although my face is completely smooth. (See photo)

If my skin won't improve further naturally, is there anything I can do to improve it?

The red marks will fade. Don't forget what it was like to have acne. Enjoy your new skin and try to be patient. A retinoids can help fade marks but there is irritation that comes with that. At this point your skin may just need some down time to heal.
