Your Opinion?
Aug 1, 2004
Hi Accutane Users, I have mild to moderate ance and now on more the moderate side. I've been using Retin-A Micro for 1.5mos now and I notice my face is clearing up, but it seems the oilyness of my face is a lot more and I can't resist to wash my face 3 times a day (one in the afternoon) because the oil feels gross. But, I'm using a very mild facial bar. I have a bit of red marks on my face from previous damage but it seems to be calming down. Now, I'm thinking that I'm going to keep getting occasional breakouts and oily skin so I'm considering Accutane to finish the job. My pores are currently quite large and visible close up but they are a lot cleaner now than before Retin-A. My Doc says he'll give me Accutane if I want because both my mother and uncle have taken it before and suceeded. Does Accutane shrink your pores well and is that something I should highly consider at my point??? Is it lasting and why? I would be happy to hear everyones input... Your opinion means more to me than a doctor just handing out prescriptions that never had acne.


P.S. This is a picture of me to this day and the past when it wasn't as bad...
You'll notice the shine of oil and is caused quite a bit by the Retin-A exfoliating all my dead layers so up close my skin looks so much healthier but look at me!
