Quick history: I'm 19, I'm a full time working model and my acne had gotten so bad that it was affecting my source of income. I had to skip fashion week, cancel jobs... it's ust been a big ole mess.
I was living in London but had to come back to the US a month ago to get my skin sorted out.
After waiting the 30 days for the iPLEDGE program I finally got my accutane 12 days ago.
I'm on 40mg a day of Amnesteem
My skin was the worst its ever been when I got back to the US a month ago, and during the 30 days I had to wait because of iPLEDGE it cleared up some.
So here I am on day 12-
The pimples I've had over the past week or some seem to come to a head and pop themselves within a day- and over all the spots that I am get are far less painful than they have been in the past few months.
My lips are chapped, but I'm a nazi with the Aquaphor, so they are doing alright.
I've been getting mad headaches since Saturday, usually at night- also in the evenings my face, ears, and hands have started to get really red and flushed.
I can notice a dry tightening of my skin.
I've also had a bit of back chest and joint pain- but I'm assuming that is probably more from working out than the Accutane :)/ err I hope...
Over all things have had a little improvement, and are staying steady
I'm getting my blood tests and everything on Thursday...
Ok on to pictures:
please if you're going to look at the 1st pics, look at the last ones as well- there has been major improvement since the horrific first ones.
These are from Jan 22- I'd just arrived back in the US. WARNING: this is the WORST my skin has ever looked:
Ugh ok enough of that.
Moving on, these were taken on Feb. 12th (8 days before I got my accutane):
And these on February 26th:
AAAAAnd these today, on day 12 of accutane:
Sooo all in all, I'm experiencing side effect yes, but I'm also seeing improvement.
ehh we'll see how this pans out...
