  1. I said that I would post my current skin after showing you how bad my acne was in my last blog post. Anyways here’s my skin on month two! It’s a huge improvement from the pictures I posted the other day❤️ Does anyone know how I can get rid of my acne scars or help them fade while on acutane????
  2. Hello anyone who reads this! I am 16 and took accutane back in 2013, finished my first course in the August. It did wonders to my skin - changed my life. But of course it came with side effects, I think mine were quite serious. I will now tell you the journey briefly and would extremely appreciate any guidance given to what I should do next. I began accutane on 10mg in the February of 2013, everything was absolutely fine apart from the dryness and slight lower back pain - nothing was se
  3. Hey everyone, So I went on accutane January of 2016, and finished 5 months later in June. My skin was so perfect for about a full year, and slowly it started to come back. After a long and upsetting battle between my skin and self confidence, I’ve decided to go on it again. Something I regretted last time was not keeping track of my progress, as it can be extremely disappointing to not see daily improvement. I plan to track my side effects, and just my skin in general on here! hopefully a
  4. I finished my second week of accutane a few days ago and my skin is blemish free! It’s been years since I’ve had not one spot on my face! My skin hasn’t broken out in over a week now but I’ve noticed that in certain lights my skin does look more uneven and my pores look larger. I’ve read from other people’s blogs that their pores became less visible after a few months so I’m hoping this happens with me too. My lips and skin aren’t as dry anymore so I haven’t felt the need to use moisturiser
  5. Brief history - I've had acne since 6th grade (about to go into 9th). No cystic acne but I had pretty moderate persistent acne. My face was also disgustingly oily, I'm talking practically dripping and hour after I put on my makeup! I started accutane beginning in feb. 2012. My skin cleared up within the first 2 months and I didn't get a SINGLE pimple. My skin was flawless and the oily sheen was gone! I was beyond happy! I was supposed to do 9 months but I only ended up doing 7... on the month w
  6. Hey everyone! I took my first course of accutane a little less than 2 years ago! I had TERRIBLE acne, but it cleared me up really well! After being off of accutane for about a year, I started to break out again. Now, even though I am not nearly as bad as I was the first time around, I am at the point where taking a second course would benefit me! I'm taking half the dosage I did the first time (I took 40 MG twice a day, but now I will be taking 40 MG once a day!) I just started today, and
  7. Hi everyone, I'm on my second round of accutane now and I am taking a low dose (40mg, i weigh 180 lbs). I plan on taking this for a longer period of time because I know that accutane is about cumulative dose. I was just wondering if by taking a lower dose that i won't have as bad of an initial breakout, or if i won't breakout as much. I know it is different for everyone and there is no way to tell or no facts, but if people have been through this i would appreciate some anecdotal evidence or wh
  8. Here it is, my second course of Accutane. This is for mild/somewhat moderate at times acne. My acne is not as bad now as it was when I went on my first course at 17 years of age. Day 1: 6/19/17 Course Length: 6 Months 26 Year Old Male: 150lbs 40mg Claravis 30 day supply: ~$225 No Insurance As of today, I'm getting over a pretty bad breakout that was happening on my forehead and temples probably exacerbated by the "natural" pomade that I was using. I have a whitehead on the left si
  9. hey guys im 136 pounds, 5'10, did 40mg for 4 months, ended in end of july. got back on the tane beggining of november cause some small pimples were forming , no major breakouts but i know these were kinda a sign since there was no week where i would have 100% clear skin. after my first round, by the end of it i developped some facial flushing, cheek and nose, when i get shy by something or thing like that. thing were under control tho and it was slowly less frequent now im on the tane
  10. hey guys, im 140 lbs, was on accutane 40mg/day for 4 months, ended in end of july. been pimples free for 3 months then acne slowly came back but really small and i tried new products too, so might caused breakouts. at the moment i dont have much pimples, maybe 3 small, normally they go away fast. but i cant have a week without a new one coming out. even if they fade away quick. so ive been back to my derm and asked him about a second course since it was slowly creepin back ! should
