Progress?



The left picture is Nov. 2007, but the right is Jan. 5th 2008, which is almost 6 months into my Accutane Treatment. I'm soo frustrated, it seems not to improve at all...barley any progress here right? My doctor said I should be clearer by now, and I may have to go another month (which would make a 7 month course). Has anyone else not been clear by the 6th month of treatment???

Suggestions?

Photo Information for Progress?


Recommended Comments

Hey, I'm about to start month five and my skin looks worse than yours...I'm very frustrated too. But, I notice for both of us it is only the cheeks. Everything else is clear. My docter said cheeks are the last thing to clear. If you are seeing progress other places, than you are still progressing. Just hang in there! Some people stilll clear after they stop treatment.

What I notice is that every red mark on your face now, was there in novemeber, over a month ago. are they still active spots or red marks? Because marks often take longer to heal on tane. For example, on your jaw there are 3 red dots...I can't imagine they'll be active after so long. So they should fade more once you are off tane.

Thanks for your input. I guess they are red marks......but hopefully they will fade much much much much more! We will see, going to the Doctor in a few days!

Something I found to help reduce redmarks, even though I have never been on Accutane, is a vitamin K based cream. They actually have one out there that targets blotchy skin types. It's what I use and about two weeks later the redmarks are almost invisible I love the stuff. I don't know where you are located but It is readily available at most Shopper's Drug Marts, up here in Canada.
