  1. HI all, just wanted to update my log. I've been off accutane for almost a year now, and I'm still amazed at how pretty my skin is. I love accutane..........
  2. I hate to say it, but you're probably going to have to deal with the embarrassment for a few more months. By my 3rd month on accutane, I was finally clearing up. The first 3 months was pretty bad though. Lots of big breakouts-repeatedly. One spot would clear and another would arrive. Don't worry though, it's so worth it. I've been off a year now, and am still acne free even without topicals. It's a wonderful drug.
  3. If you really want to do extractions, I'd recommend going and getting a facial. This way you'll know they're being done correctly when your skin is soft and your pores are open.
  4. I continued breaking out on and off till my third month. After that it was smooth sailing. Hold tight, it will get better.
  5. I wouldn't cut carrots out of your diet. They're high in beta-carotene (vit A) which is really beneficial to acne prone skin. Accutane and retin-a are both vitamin A derivatives.
  6. HI all, I was on accutane roughly a year ago for cystic acne. Well good thing is, no more cysts. Unfortunately though, my skin has started breaking out (very mildly) and I was thinking of using Yonka products. Anyone use them? I'm going for a yonka facial Saturday, and I was hoping to figure out if I should drop a couple hundred dollars to buy the line. I have to be honest....my breakouts are super mild. Little bit of inflammation, but really no whiteheads or blackheads. It's just surprisin
  7. Good luck with your accutane journey. It always gets worse before it gets better, but damn once it gets better it's awesome. I've been off for over 6 months now, and for the first time in my adult life I have beautifully flawless skin. It's so wonderful to hear people compliment your skin because you're the only one that will know what you had to go through to get it. )
  8. I haven't been on here in so long. I finished accutane last summer and I wanted to post how much I still love it. I love it, love it, love it. My skin is fantastic. No breakouts. None whatsoever. Life is so good post accutane. No residual side effects and no acne. I can't even remember what it was like to have perpetual bad skin (so maybe I can a little, but choose not to). Good luck to all of you out there who are still trying to deal with it and are on accutane. It's so worth it.
  9. Skin is still clear and gorgeous. Not a single blemish since I stopped. I love accutane )
  10. Thanks Leily, I appreciate your kind words. You and your family are in my thoughts. I hope everything is going well for you father.
  11. It's been two weeks, and I'm side effect and acne free. Life has returned to normal except I don't have acne anymore. No more topicals, or pills, or crazy diets. I'm so happy. Keep your fingers crossed.....hopefully things stay this way.
  12. It's been 8 days since I finished and I'm feeling great. No more fatigue or crazy dry lips. My eyes are still dry, but not nearly as bad as they were. Things are definitely looking up. I'm so happy. My skin is smooth and clear. It has also returned to it's normal shade of olive. Yeah!!!!!!!!! Can life get any better. I love accutane.
  13. Hold on for a little bit longer. It will get better. I remember sitting alone in my apartment becuase there was no way to hide the cysts, and no way I was going out looking like that. give accutane a chance to work. I noticed significant improvement in month 2, and then by month 3 I was cyst free. I've been off for 5 days, and I have the prettiest skin I've ever had in my life. I'm almost 30 years old, and I finally don't have acne. It's amazing. You won't regret this. The side effects
  14. I'm done!!!!!! I took my final dose on saturday, two days ago. I feel great. My skin is clear (except for this teeny tiny clogged pore that no one can see except for me). I'm so worried that the acne will come back. I compulsively touch my jaw line to check for new cysts forming. Nothing there yet, just soft smooth skin. Yeah!!!!!!!!! I can't believe how great this feels. Now if only the side effects would go away. Hopefully soon.
  15. Good luck on Accutane. I'm a 29 yr old female, and I'm just finishing. My last dose was 2 days ago. I did 40mg for 3 months then 80 mg for the last month. My skin looks beautiful, finally. Hopefully it lasts. Good luck again. In just a few months your skin will be gorgeous.
