    7 Months Post Accutane!

    I was on accutane for 7 months at 80mg a day. Very strong dossage and it was very hard with the side effects, but my derm keep me there to make sure my acne would not come back...It was well worth it! )

    7 Months Post Accutane!

    I felt fatigue about a month after my last dose....The red marks took a lot longer....I think I started to see a big difference after month 3...It does take a while but you will see beutiful healthy skin about 6 months after your last dose... Hope this helps!
  3. It has been officially 7 months since my last accutance pill and I am still 100 percent CLEAR!!! I just got married on saturday and viewed my pictures and they look AMAZING!

My skin at this time has gone back to my normal oily self and so has my hair....the oil came back around month 5 to 6 and I was nervous since I thought the acne would come back with the oil...but so far my skin has staid

    5 Months Post Accutane

    I'm using MAC blotting powder and it works great....I think this is the first month that I really feel the oil coming back especially on my forhead. And yes I use it over my make up - which is also MAC I'm not sure what laser treatment I'm going with but it might have to wait....I'm sooo happy with my skin right now that I don't know if I want to go through the procedure.... Good Luck!
  5. It has been a while since my last post. I think the last one was 2 months post accutane - well it's 5 months post accutane now andI am still COMPLETLY CLEAR! I don't even remember what it feels like to have acne LOL... I don't even have one blackhead! My oil has returned on my face and I started using my blotting powder with my makeup through out the day....but still clear...all my side effects are completly gone and my hair is back to normal. It even gets oily now... In january I will
  6. I totally understand! I was on 80mg for ever and didn't see a difference till the beginning of month 5. Hang in there it will all be worth it! Ive been off accutane for 2 months and have been completly clear since the beginning of month 5, but it will take time. Good Luck Karen

    Day 70 Post Accutane

    Thank You so much! It really has been a great experience for me being on accutane and seeing the end results....It was really hard in the beginning but once I hit month 4 it started to get better....Hang in there if you are on accutane....It will be worth it at the end
  8. It's been 2 weeks since my last post and I continue to be COMPLETLY CLEAR! It's amazing how beutiful my skin looks. I go with out makeup without given it a second thought now. I have found an amazing man that loves to see me without any makeup and tells me how beutiful my skin looks, even with the scaring. I have not felt this happy in years!! My side effects are completly gone and have no issues. CONCLUSION: Acctuane changed my life for the better and I will do it all ov
  9. I finally went to my last Derm appoitment and she was very happy to see how clear my skin is at this time. It has been almost 2 months since my last pill and everything still looks good. I also had the doctor that will be doing my laser treatments look at my face to see if it will be feasable. He said he will need to do some test spots due to my darker skin he thinks I will get really bad pigmignation issues (he thinks my skin will turn dark). I have to really think about it since I don'
  10. STILL CLEAR! Almost two months post accutane and I am still 100 PERCENT clear!!! Is almost hard to believe that so far the meds are working and I have no breakouts. I'm extremely HAPPY and will never change my experience and the outcome! Scaring is still visible and I'm hoping it will get better with time...I guess you can't have it all -But still much better then before.... I'm still using the clariphil soup and moisterizer and that's it. Nothing with medication on my face. I th
  11. The pimple I had is gone The prescription spot treatment my derm gave me is awesome! It literally went away the next day.... Things continue to progress nicely...My face has not gotten as oily as before but there's more oil for sure then when I was on accutane. My lips are complelty back to normal and I am glad to say that I am back to wearing my lipstick withiout having to apply vasaline Only thing that is still a bit persistent is the joint pain...it comes and goes but I can still
  12. I have my first pimple since I stoped my accutane treatment It's not big at all and it's by my ear so it's not noticable but it hurt like hell and I knew it was there. It's been such a LONG time since I had any king of blemish that it took me by total surprise. I know it problably has to do with my period being on, but it still made me feel really anxious. Last night I actually dreamed that my face was FULL of pimples and cystic acne. It made me feel completly sick. I'm glad it was o
  13. I have officially reached my one month post accutane time and I am so excited that I have not had any blemishes or pimples since my last pill !!! It has been months at this time since I had anything on my face, back or chest....I am so HAPPY! This weekend I went without makeup the entire weekend! All I did was wear a little mascara and that was it! And I still felt beutiful.... No worrries on people looking at me and wondering what was wrong with my face...It was a different feeling
  14. It looks like January 2012 is going to be the laser treatment month. I know my derm can't start my facial laser treatment till then and now I can't start my laser hair removal till then either. Everything that has to do with my skin I have to wait the 6 months.... I guess I have to be safe about it..... Accutane Update: My face continues to be 100 percent clear....I do have a blackhead that I am trying not to squeeze but I think I might have too....My skin is still very sensitive an
  15. STILL CLEAR~! All side effects are gone at this time. My face continues to be sensitive but nothing crazy... I have my one month post accutane app with my derm next Tuesday for my final pregnancy test and then my count down begins for my 6 month wait...In January 2012 I will begin laser treatments for my scars....Hopefully it won't be to bad.... I also have a consultation tommorrow for laser hair removal. I'm not sure when I will be able to actually do the procedure but I want to kn
