If i get accutane, since im only 15 will it..

Recommended Posts

My derm said after the course it should stay clear for up to 7 years, but im wondering since im only 15, going on 16 in 2 and a half months (may 24) that if indeed it lasts for 7 years, will i be grown out of it by the time im 23? My sister is 21 and she still gets pimples once in a while, so im just wondering for all of u past users who took accutane around 15-16 did u grow out of it before the acne had a chance to come back?

Theres no way of telling whether it will come back or not. If it is acne that you're going to grow out of by the end of your teens, then its more likely to kill it off for good. If your family has a history of persistent adult acne, then it may well come back, but its impossible of telling whether it will be 7 years or 7 months. All you can do is go on it and see what happens
