  1. UPDATE: Between work and other things going on I am mobile very often and don't turn on my computer until the weekends if I have time, however I do check my Facebook daily on my iPhone, so I am going to post my FB link to where you can message me if you need a quick response and it isn't the weekend: FB: https://www.facebook.com/john.betts.90260 ( you must have a Facebook profile to message me )
  2. All PM's have been replied too! Sorry for the delay!
  3. Hi Kbeex3!! I just read your posts and have to say please do not give up any hope! This is just a bump in the road right now in life and one day you're going to look back and laugh at it! I was in the same situation you were in a few years ago and understand exactly what you are going through, the depression acne causes is outstanding and those that never had to go through this will never understand how it feels. A user a few posts above posted a link to my thread, if you have a chance please go
  4. Ah I really wish I can give you a accurate answer for this question but I can't remember how much I weighed, if I had to guess I would say maybe 150-155? I weigh 170 now. ------------------------ Thank you for the kind words! That is awesome that your kids acne is clearly up, its always that much better especially having supportive parents such as you seem to be, my parents were the ones pushing me to go on the medication, I originally said no and my mom kept saying just try it so between he
  5. It all varies, everyones body is different and heals differently, but judging from your pictures your face seems to be healing very well, mine started with pink spots and then gradually faded more and more every week until they were gone. There is a treatment called skin peel you can take to get the scars to fade away faster but I would only do that if there absolutely not fading after a while.
  6. Hey man, hope you don't mind answering a few questions - Did you use any products to help get rid of the scarring or did it heal naturally? And do you remember how long did it take for those scars in the last 2 pics to heal? Your incredible pictures give me hope Ask as much as you'd like, this is the purpose of this thread - I didn't use any products to help with the scarring, everything healed naturally. As I said above there is a treatment called a "chemical peel" available and my doctor w
  7. They do start to fade and eventually a majority of them do go away completely but it takes a long time. While I was on the 6 month cycle of Accutane if you look at the 4 pictures of when I did have acne you can tell that the scars went from very bright red and some indented spots , to eventually fading out and didn't look like huge craters anymore. My dermatologist did say after I was done with Accutane if I had severe scars and marks there is a post-treatment, I'm not sure of the name but it al

  9. Thank you all! Never seen these comments until today! Appreciate it! :)

    1. I did not notice my skin being dry but I did notice that I was very sensitive to the sun on this medication, meaning that it took me half the time it usually did to get sunburnt, and I live in FL so if I was outside for more than a hour straight I would pretty much be toasted, even driving during the day sometimes I would feel the heat burning my skin - thank god the easy solution for that was I got limo tint and could drive without being fried lol. Also I did notice some but very little dand
    2. Honestly from what I can remember the first month of taknig it I didnt see much of a change, the second month my face started to loose the oily look, the third month my face got bad again and started to get worse, then the fourth month, fifth month, and sixth month were where I started to see the medicine taking full effect and clearing my face dramatically.
    3. Here is my Accutane thread, best decision of my life: http://www.acne.org/messageboard/index.php/topic/323658-accutane-life-changing-experience/
    4. Life is deffinitly better as well as a whole lot easier, I can walk around now without getting stared at like I had alligator skin, the purpose of this thread wasn't to brag. it was just to tell people that are thinking about taking it but scared, to take it, and for everyone that is already on it but not seeing results to give it time, I didn't start seeing much of my results until the last couple of months before my treatment was over, it got worse before it got better, just to give everyone h
    5. I have been off it roughly 2 years, never had any stomach issues at all.
    6. Hey everyone! I have been unactive on this forum for awhile now and was just thinking about it the other day! I realized I never posted pictures of my ending results while on accutane and just would like to show everyone (without bragging but for accutane purposes) that this product does infact work and deffinitly changed my life for the better. Throughout my teenage years I had a very oily face and severe cystic acne that I could never get rid of, I tried everything from my dermatologist , l
