ACCUTANE GALLERY

The main objective of this pinned thread is so that all of the Accutane users have an opportunity to post their Accutane before and after pictures in order to enable easier viewing by other members. We are hoping that this thread will facilitate locating the before and after photos, as well as alleviate some of the difficulties associated with the screening process in the original gallery.

Guidelines:

1. Post your before and after Accutane photos in ascending order.

2. Write a one sentence description explaining how many mg of Accutane you were taking and the

length of time.

3. No discussions should occur in this thread.

PLEASE HELP US KEEP THIS THREAD ORGANIZED!

I was on 40mg of accutane for 6 weeks then on 60mg for 5months. I was taking no other medication and did nothing special to my skin other than take my make-up off with soap and I used eucerine moisturiser morning and night.

First month I was on 40mg.

Second month 80mg.

Third 80mg then switched to 60mg.

Fourth 80mg.

Fifth 80mg.

I stopped a month early because my triglys were at a whopping 498 up from 98 in the beginning.

Not perfect. But better.

Update: If you don't clear up totally kiddies don't give up hope. It took me a couple extra months and some high quality vitamins before I finally quit getting the occasional cyst. Now I'm doing great (::knocks on wood::) with only the occasional whitehead. I still use 2.5 BP most nights though.

The first two photos I was on 40mg (for two weeks). After the third week, I started 80mg and have been on that dose ever since. The photos start from Dec 31st, 07 to Jan 26th, 08.

I started Accutane on the 22nd of December 2008.

Note: Some of the photos I'm wearing either no foundation or some. No concealer.

Hi everybody!

Oh it's so long when I first read this topic and now I'm writing to it to shere this!

Wanted to share my experience and of course its results! PM if you have any questions!

Although I'm not happy for the red marks this drug has dramatically left, I uploaded these pics for to show Accutane's job. I think this redness will subside a little more and so my pores might get a little smaller (from nose pic I think you understand at least)

I HAD body acne but it was gone before I even noticed it being disappearing! It was superb.

I started to use this drug January 17th 2008 and I was most likely in this same situation already in mid of May (5 months ago!) but slowly to reach the cumulative dosage (Ended to get 131mg/kg) I stopped to use this drug October 12th 2008 being whole course on 30mg a day.

These pics aren't from the day one; these are from March 11th 2008

After this whole process, I'm more than happy to start this course and hope this will last and acne won't bother me anymore. This was a success. I know these marks (maybe the lightning make it look less bad as it is now) will heal in time and I might, someday, look fabulous! : P

Btw, I have had even a girlfriend this summer, lasted about 4½months but that was it.. It was a shame.. Now everyone is calling me as a ladies' man (or what ever you call it) because there is so many girls fall in love with me (no, this is not funny! Those are my friends! I can handle one, but...)

If you still think is it worth it, it is! Low dose (as you can say I had) course is great; just dry lips and dry skin but nothing else! : P

Cheers,

Zech <3<3

Today is my fourth day on Accutane (second time taking). I took a full course of it 3 years ago and it worked wonders, but the crap returned after a year I stopped. I am so hoping it'll end this crap once and for all this time round.

I remember posting here once in hopes of one day posting my own before and after pictures. Well, the time has come. I have been off accutane for a month now and my face is doing a lot better. I still got a lot of red marks but zero pimples, cyst.

Now that I have short hair I feel that my red marks show more but accutane is the best thing in the world! I am 100% happy and 120% satisfied.

Pictures (Ignore my facial expression I try to smile but always fail and I end up looking ridiculous)

Day 7 on accutane!

Helllloooo Everyone!!!! :) So my story in a nutshell...started getting severe acne at 20ish was put on accutane at 21 in late february 20mg's daily got bumped up to 40 mg's daily in April and then got bumped up to 80mg's daily in June and have been on 80mg since. Pretty sure I'm finishing up my last month and I can honestly say going on accutane was the BEST decision I ever made (I really wasnt going to take it I said no the first time my derm offered it to me) but honestly the pictures speak for themselves...my side effects were minimal obviously dry/tight skin and lips some redness in my skin and eyes. but other than that just CLEAR skin I'm actually getting compliments on my skin now which is crazy to me....Accutane literally gave me my life back, I'm right back to the old outgoing, flirty, friendly, happy Kristina and I'm loving it....if you are reading these posts and considering acctuane DO IT...you will be soooo happy you did!! But good luck to all of you on your journey to clear skin!!!!

xoxo

Here's my before and afters. I was on 60mg of Accutane for about 4 months. I had severe cystic acne on my face and a little on my back. Going on Accutane was the best decision I ever made.

You can read about my experience in my log.

EDIT: Two years later and my skin is still fantastic. My only regret is not going on Accutane earlier in life.
