This photos was taken about 6 months after finishing accutane. My skin completely cleared up but I still get the occasional pimple, which is totally ok compared to what I used to get! I actually started accutane in 2007 and was on an 8 month course for mild acne. Even though I never really had bad (say cystic) acne, it was still the kind that wouldn't go away no matter what I used! So I'm incredibly thankful for accutane and for anyone who is still on it or hasn't started, keep going and don't give up! Now all I need to do is get rid of those annoying scars... anyone have any tips?
