Accutane good for wrinkles too?

Recommended Posts

Hi there. I was reading this article that said that people using accutane also noticed that their wrinkles diminished (something to do with the vitamin A). Anyone else heard this? :?: Its not a major concern to me or anything, I am only 28 and don't really have any except for a couple lines under my eyes when I smile, but I thought it was quite interesting and an added bonus. What do you think?

wrinkling is a NORMAL process of aging and accutane isn't MEANT for improving nature (it's for an abnormality called ACNE!) it IS a relief from either severe or persistent mild acne and shouldn't be even thought of as a supercure for wrinkles.

I realise you were just curious but don't risk your health and (possibly) your future offspring's health in order just to be more perfect (it' not worthwhile). just these reflections from me, hope you didn't get offended :D

if you really really want to diminish (or slow down) wrinkiling - jus try: tretinoin, tazorac, differin and vichy/loreal/whatever-else creams - you should be satisfied with them (when i used them [i mean the retinoids not the creams for wrinkles] i had very very smooth complexion :) )
