week 2. right side.



i went on accutane last year (for 4 months) and had great results. however, it only kept me clear for about 6-7 months. my doctor decided to try it again for the full 6 months this time. i really hope it works!

my breakouts weren't too bad at first, but i scar easily, so my derm put me back on tane. my skin looked pretty good after the first month, but it's been getting progressively worse since then. i’m on my 4th month of treatment and my skin still looks like hell, which is a little discouraging seeing as last time I was completely clear before the 4th month.

my derm thinks that a longer course this time should keep me clear. my sister had an 8 month course, and she’s been clear for over 3 years now. so yeah, if your skin is getting bad again, i would definitely talk to your derm about trying a longer course this time, and hopefully it works for you.

wish you the best!
