Just off Accutane, now what?!

Recommended Posts

Hi guys... been a member a while but haven't really posted ever. well, I just finished my last bit of Accutane on Christmas. No more breakouts... but I still have terrible (some dark red to lighter red) marks on my right upper cheek area. My first real breakout from my Accutane dose caused the hyperpigmentation. That was back in July or August. I use Cetaphil cleanser and Aquafor/ Lotion on my face. Do you think I should try to expedite the process with some sort of product or should I just play the waiting game until the redness fades on its own? My concern about products is that it could break me out again. Any suggestions?

as someone posted on my thread a couple topics down, waiting seems to be the only option. although im still "waiting" for someone to say otherwise, throw up some before/ after pics of a successful procedure/product/regimen for expediting PIH healing.

dude just wait the hyperpigmentation will go away fast if you want it gone faster get a lotion with a aha glycolic acid in it and only use it one day a week at night before bed it will help exfoliate your skin and remove the red marks all you have is post inflammatory hyperpigmentation look it up lol.
