Photo Information for MONTH 5 - LAST WEEK - CLEAR!!


Recommended Comments

Hi-

Your progress is amazing! Your skin looks baby soft, pores tiny, and no acne. I have some questions if you don't mind. I just started very low dose Accutane 2 days ago. I have mild acne, mainly on my chin and occassional nose area. I get blackheads on my nose and have larger pores on my nose. My skin is clear everywhere else. I'm on 10 mg. day Sotret to start. I also have mild Rosacea (pink cheeks/nose) so the Derm. wants to keep the Accutane dosage low.

What dosage of Accutane were you on? Was your face/nose dry and peeling the entire time during treatment or only sometimes? What did you use to moisterize or for it not to look flakey? Does Accutane help with blackheads and shrink pores? What was the worst side effects, and were they mainly in the beginning months of treatment? Things to know or prepare for? Overall, are you really happy and would do again and recommend to others?

Thanks so much. Any advice is appreciated. Congrats again!!

Wow! Nice improvement! I always seem to see this, between month 4 and 5 there's a HUUUGE difference. I'm really hoping it'll be the same for me..I'm on month 4, 1 week and I still have my scars.. yours seemed to fade pretty well in between that time? Was it gradual over those 3 or so weeks or rapid?

Thanks.
