Accutane Questions

Recommended Posts

I finished accutane about 2 months ago, and my skin looks GREAT. I had no problems at all.

All I have left are acne scars.. what's the best way to remove them?

Also, I noticed now that I've been off of accutane, that my face is becoming a little more oily. Is this normal? Is your face always supposed to stay dry?

One last thing, what kind of face would you reccomend. One that drys your face, or a gentle one (like cetaphil)?

Yep, you do get some oil back, so don't worry too much about that.

Get a gentle, non irritating or drying cleanser. Purpose Gel cleanser or Cetaphil should be fine.

Aside from going on a topical retinoid, you may just have to wait for the red marks to go away on their own. I've heard aloe vera works pretty well, and there's a discussion about that in the red mark portion of these boards, I think.

Good luck, and I hope you have many, many more clear skinned days ahead!
