My Successful Accutane Journey

Before I started Accutane.

Before I started Accutane.

Before I started Accutane. During the Accutane process, about 3.5-4 months in. About 4-5 months in. After the Accutane treatment was complete!

I had HORRIBLE cystic acne all over my face, concentrated on my chin. Every day I'd wake up with a new monster on my face and throughout the day I would have to carry tissues with me because at times, some would randomly break open and literally ooze out. It was disgusting and would happen at any time, even in class. My face hurt all the time and I never wanted to touch it, I hardly wanted to leave the house because of how bad my face was. I had tried antibiotics which helped at first, but failed shortly after. I finally went to the dermatologist and he took one look at me before prescribing Accutane.


I was really skeptical at first, especially when my face began to get worse, but then it slowly got better. I was on Accutane for about six months and my face is so clear that people weren't even able to recognize me. There is a bit of redness in my cheeks, but I was prescribed medicine for that which has reduced it significantly. I don't have any scarring left over from the Accutane and my skin/lips are no longer dry.

Accutane was a huge success for me, and I hope it can help out others with the same problems I had.

I've been off of Accutane for about two months and haven't had a single pimple.

Can't wait!

So happy for you! My face was much like in your before pictures; I feel your pain. I'm on month two of accutane and cannot wait to be done with treatment and with a clear face still. Seeing your story makes my eyes well with tears. I am so happy others have found success like I have!

That one. :)

I've been off of Accutane for about three to four months and my skin is still super clear. I use typical face washes just because I feel cleaner when I do, but otherwise I don't have any breakouts at all.

Let's see some after photos of how your face looks now all cleared up from the Accutane and is it still staying clear. Are you continuing to use Accutane or are ya now using a topical or the best situation of all, using nothing and staying clear? Thanks
