Quick Accutane question

So I'm in my fourth month of Accutane treatment (1st month 10mg; 2nd month 20mg; 3rd month 40mg; currently 60mg) I'm 19 and weigh ~195lbs. I have had moderate acne on my face since I was about 13, and mild chest and back acne.

Currently I still get acne on my face (although it is improving), but my back and chest have cleared completely and did so on my first month at 10mg.

I was just wondering if this is a normal progression (body clears before face), or if it was just because my acne wasn't as severe on my body.

hang in there bud.

i have just finished a 4 month course and it didn't clear up till the end.

it carries on improving until 2 months after you stop taking it.
