  1. How long have you to take this medicine for its side effects to become permanent? I ask as I’ve already started to experience blurred vision after taking accutane for just over a week and am worried about damaging my sight.
  2. You say the accutane remains in the body for roughly two months, but how long would I have had to take it for it to keep in my system for that long?
  3. I've been taking accutane and because the side effects are getting worse, I want to stop taking it. Is it safe to do that, to just stop taking the medicine, or would I have to come down gradually by taking a lower dosage and then stopping completely?
  4. I've just started a course of accutane and already my skin is starting to look red and sore. According to a post on this site, these side effects can be effectively remedied by using the cream aforementioned in the title. Therefore I was wondering if anyone has used this cream and if they've seen any positive results from it, as I've noticed this cream is rather expensive and don't want to waste money on something that isn't going to work. Thanks alot everyone for your feedback.
  5. I’m just about to start my first course of accutane and was wondering if I’d still be able to drink alcohol. It was a question I meant to ask my dermatologist, however, I just plain forgot.
  6. Over the years I’ve found tinted moisturisers to be a something of a double-edged sword when it comes to hiding acne scars. They can either cover them up flawlessly, or exacerbate them and make the problem look worse. I was wondering which of these categories Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser falls under? If anyone has tried this product and would be good enough to relate their experiences I would be very grateful.
  7. Does vitamin E actually reduce the appearance of acne scarring, as I’ve heard so many conflicting stories about it? I’ve heard it works fantastically and scars are barely visible, but then I’ve heard it does nothing other than create more acne and leave you with greasy skin. I would like to know as currently nothing is working.
  8. Has anyone tried this product, it sounds pretty good? Any feedback would be great, thanks! http://www.boots.com/shop/product_details....mp;slmRefer=000
  9. Foxclose, it says on your profile that you’re from London, England. I bring this up as I too am from the UK and have had trouble finding retin A at a 0.05 strength. Consequently I’m on a 0.025& though I think I need a stronger concentration. Could you tell me how you went about getting retin A at that strength. Did you get it prescribed by a GP, dermatologist or did you get it elsewhere? Any feedback would be great; thanks.
  10. Just out of curiosity, what strength Retin A are you using?
  11. I’ve been using Retin A gel 0.025% for almost three weeks and don’t seem to be seeing any results. In the first two weeks the gel dried my skin and started to make it peel. I took this as a good sign, as I’d read that the peeling skin would induce collagen production so reducing scars and acne. However in the past few days my skin has returned to normal. The peeling has stopped and white heads have reappeared. Whether this is a normal effect with using this medicine, I don’t know. I just
  12. What is the difference between the Retin A cream and the gel? Does one work better than the other, or is it just a matter of preference?
  13. Has anyone used this cream on their acne scars, and if so, have they seen any results?
  14. I’ve heard countless praise for this product, it being dubbed a miracle cure for wrinkles. If such a product can fix the pitting of wrinkles, would it not fix the pitting of scarring? My question is has anyone tried this product for acne scarring? If so, have they seen any results however minor? I would appreciate any feedback on this as I’m reaching the end of my tether with my scars.
