  1. My progress with accutane, beginning with 40 mg
  2. From the album: Accutane Journey (Zenatane)

    Here's a comparison from about my first month on accutane vs the last month. The picture on the right was right before my initial breakout and the one on the right was after a long day. Pretty happy that I no longer get cystic pimples. I still get very small whiteheads around my lip area but my derm prescribed me a topical cream which has been zapping them away.

    This was during the night after having applied some foundation earlier in the day. I was pretty much done with accutane at this point; only had about a week left for me to finish the treatment.

    Here's a low res pic of how my skin looks like with barely any foundation, this light really does it justice because my scarring is very prevalent.

    Basically no more break outs, just scarring. Wearing make up

    So I completed 2 months around this point and got bumped up to 80mg. I have breakouts closer to my lip area now which weren't a problem before. My derm told me that month 3 is when I'm finally seeing results, which I am very excited about. I also got Dr.Dans lip balm which works wonders for dry lips, honestly you should throw away every product you're currently using and just use this stuff.

    Fewer cysts than ever. I was getting a lot of whiteheads around my chin and lip area though. Mostly just scarring.

    Had less cysts around this point. I'm wearing make up.

    About 3 1/2 weeks in, wearing make up. Not much improvement but I don't have as much cysts as before. Skin is beginning to dry up more making it harder for my make up to not look so cake-y. I have my dermatologist appointment this week so hopefully he prescribes me something topical for my scarring and hyper pigmentation. Not bad for the first month.

    This about 2 weeks on Zenatane on 40mg. I was going through my initial break out.

  17. From the album: Accutane Journey (Zenatane)

    I had met with my dermatologist for the first time and was prescribed the antibiotic Doryx (doxycycline hyclate) and had about a month to wait for my blood work reports to show that I was able to get on accutane. Since I was only on these for a month, I never fully saw results just the initial break out which was the worst break out I have ever had. I had cysts popping on my cheeks and jawline, areas where I don't usually get cystic acne. I wasn't too worried about it though because I knew that

    This was about a year ago when my skin first began to break out. It was mostly whiteheads, also I'm wearing make up so it doesn't look nearly as bad as it actually was. It's funny looking back at these pictures because at the time I use to think that my skin was at the worst it had ever been.

  21. So far so good, my skin is beginning to dry up and my lips are pretty chapped but I apply lip balm vigorously throughout the day. I had my initial break out about the first 2 weeks but it has definitely calmed down since then. I get white heads now but they go away quicker than they use to, so that's improving.
  22. Began my accutane journey on 3/4/16 with 40 mg of Zenatane for 5 months
