I'm in my final month of Accutane. It's been a long journey.
The first few months were hard; i'm not going to lie. Not that my face got worse, it just stayed the same, which was frustrating for me because i wanted to see results instantly lol. I had a few embarrasing moments where my skin was so chapped it actually cracked and bled. in public. without me realizing it. but that was when i learned to put moisturizer on my face in the morning AND night. I use Dove moisterizer btw. I noticed my face would still break out occasionally, especially around my mouth and chin, but i had no more cysts after month 3.
About halfway into treatment, the scars from previous "battles" had began to appear. My cheeks also became more pinkish than usual. but it wasn't bad as long as I used my moisturizer, which was SPF 15. The only time i would break out was right before my period, usually around my mouth, but the blemishes were small and disappeared quickly.
Now I'm 5 months and 1 week into treatment, and my skin has never looked better. I don't breakout anymore, even around my period. and even the stubborn blackheads have disappeared. I get compliments on my smooth skin all the time.
I must say that Accutane was the best decision I ever made. I want to thank God for blessing my life. I struggled with cystic acne for 10 years and I'd ask God for help everytime. I'd recommened anyone going through the same battle that I dealt with to look into Accutane. Ignore all the horror stories and hype; they're not true. Accutane was a life-saver for me. Now I can actually make plans for the weekend without having to worry about what my face will look like. I can make eye contact when i'm having a conversation with someone and know that they are not looking at a blemish or cyst. It's wonderful to have that freedom.
Please condiser Accutane and don't be scared. It may seem frightening at first, but there's really nothing to be afraid of. I havent experienced any side effects (except for chapped lips and dry skin) the entire time i was on it, and chances are you won't either. It's absolutely worth it
