Accutane & Hairloss?

Recommended Posts

Well.. I keep hearing things about you lose hair on accutane. I am starting accutane soon & I really dont want to lose my hair.. my hair is VERY long.. I really want to go on accutane, but I really dont want to lose my hair :(

What's the percent of someone losing hair during accutane?

& it DOES grow back for sure, right?

ah now im scared to go on accutane :(:(:(

Hey Geoff,

Don't worry, only a small percentage of people lose any hair on an Accutane course. The exact figure is 13% according to this University study:

Review of Isotretinoin therapy

And even if you are one of the unlucky few, IT GROWS BACK. I lost a bunch of hair but it all came back.

Good luck,

Paul
