  1. Okay, so, been about a year since my last update. My skin so far has been breakout free for quite some time. Hoping things stay that way, but you never know. Fingers crossed. I haven't noticed an abundance of lingering effects. As it stands now, I really only had dry skin, dry lips and what I believe was thinning hair. I do think my hair suffered a little bit, but I'm not devastated nor do I regret taking this medication. I still am glad I took the medication, it REALLY improved my skin. S
  2. I don't know how long its been but.... hello My face has honestly been great since accutane. It is in now way as severe as it used to be, but every few months I still get a few spots. Nothing major and so much better. As it stands now, taking accutane and taking it the way I took it was one of the better decisions I have ever made. Nowadays, I only wash my face once a day. Cutting back on a lot of products on my post-accutane face I feel has made it much healthier and less prone to breakout
  3. 21 Months Post Accutane Still deal with occasional breakout, still nothing compared to what my spots looked like pre-accutane. Still happy with results. Psychologically the effects still remain, my confidence has still been gravely affected by acne to tell the truth. Honestly I think the breakouts I get now are purely stress induced, and I'm working on correcting that now. Gotta keep moving forward. Stay positive! UGK - 3 in the Mornin
  4. 14.5 Months Post Accutane Wow, been a while. Skin still healing, red marks still here but gradually fading. Still have a spot here and there, but still nowhere near as severe as before accutane. Staying hopeful. Trying to move past what acne did to me socially and psychologically, harder than I thought. Stay positive! Fetty - Trap Queen
  5. Great news, glad to hear your skin is well! My fear going into accutance were lingering side effects but it is awesome how we both have no lingering effects!
  6. 12 Months Post Accutane Been a while since my last update. Face is doing well, only small breakouts here and there. Amazingly, I am still working to completely rid myself of hyperpigmentation from a while back. Breakouts are less severe than before taking accutane as of now. Still happy in my decision to take the medication. No lingering side effects as of now. Stay positive! Dave East - Paranoia
  7. glad to hear you are doing well now! Happy to see retin a is working well for you, I think it is doing OK with my skin also. Been quite a journey, awesome to see we are both doing well.
  8. yes. My skin was delicate, much more so than normal. Dry and irritated, it didnt take much to create a visible red mark or scratch on my skin. Wasnt terrible though. Be sure you are staying hydrated. Part of the reason i think that my skin wasnt overly sensitive and easily irritated was my consistent water consumption.
  9. stay strong, it will get better. I still break out occasionally (did 2 days ago, have one spot on my lower lip and 2 on my forehead) but they typically are not as intense and fade at a faster rate than before accutane. Still makes me mad sometimes but my skin certaintly looks better, and with time, im sure your skin will look better as well.
  10. I feel pretty decent. Still happy with the results. How are you?
  11. 8+ Months Post-Accutane Been at least 8 months since finishing my course. All is going suprisingly well. Have had a few patches along the way with a few minor breakouts, but they tend to go away more quickly than before accutane. As of now, very happy with my results. Any questions, feel free to ask. Stay positive! Lute - Home
  12. 4ish months post accutane. Wow, can't believe how long it has been. My face is doing well so far, have had a few smaller breakouts but nothing major so far, hopefully it does not get worse. Pretty happy right now, cannot complain! Although I do wish I was completely clear, this is good enough for me! I just hope it stays like this. Stay positive! Dj Quik - Across the Map
  13. I'm very sorry to hear about the spot, I hope things are going well for you now and that the retin-a worked. I currently do not want to jinx anything, but I feel like I am doing well so far off of the drug. Just closely monitoring and taking things day by day. I hope to hear from you soon and I hope things have gotten better.
  14. 28 Days Post Accutane I plan on making a more in-depth post soon but here are some details as to my situation: Lips still mildly dry, not nearly as dry around mid course. Face seems to be gaining some oil back, although it is hard to tell. I believe I have had about 3 spots appear since taking my last pill, all of which did not or are not lasting long (one popped up yesterday but I doubt it lasts long). I hope I continue to see results, it would be so amazing. Stay positive! Future - Coming
  15. Sorry to hear about the clogged pores, I hope things get better! My skin right now feels irritated and red, I think it is the oil starting to come back. I have a few new spots but I'm hoping my new retin-a cream will help out.
  16. Thanks! I really am looking forward to treating those damn red marks, they never seem to go! Best of luck to you and stay positive!
  17. Thanks for the kind words, it means a lot - it has been quite the ride. Good luck on your journey, and I'm sure that by the end of your course you will quite satisfied! If you ever have any questions don't hesitate to post on my log! I hope you are having a nice day!
  18. Hey! I wish you the best of luck on your journey and I'm sure that in time you will have the results you are hoping for!
  19. Hang in there! I know its hard and annoying, but stick with it! Be sure to drink tons of water and take your pills with fat! I've stuck with my course for 200+days now, and am happy with the results. I'm sure when your course is done you will be happy too!
  20. Day 202 Haven't had this small of an amount of spots on my face since 7th grade. My only issue right now is hyperpigmentation, which is starting to fade a tad. Really happy with the course as of now. My course ends in 5 days. I am going to do post Accutane logs on Snapchat. If you are interested, message me and I can give you the username. I am going to be monitoring my post medicine days very closely. Honestly, I am very scared. Stay positive! Picture log update!!! - http://imgur.com/a/ArJsz
  21. Terribly sorry for the lack of updates. I plan on getting a day count tomorrow as well as a pictures and a full update. Whoever is reading this I hope you have a great day! Danny Brown - Get Hi
  22. Sounds like a great plan! I hope yours went well also!
  23. Hey, don't be down. This girl doesn't know your whole story, only you do- and like you said, things have improved for you. That's all that matters. Keep moving and forget about these ignorant remarks made by people totally lacking understanding and empathy.
  24. I know it has only been a day since you posted, but how are things now? If it is just your forehead I would say to drink more water and sleep more and that would fix things, but I am no expert.
  25. We always are our worst critic, no doubt. Thanks for the suggestion I will surely check it out! Hey, nice to hear from you again! I have about a months supply of 40mg pills left with instructions to take one daily until I am completely out of pills. Your method of weaning off of the medication is my ideal end to the treatment, and I've been trying to get a hold of my derm to ask her if I could finish my treatment with one more month of 20mg every other day. Hopefully we can work that plan out,
