have some acne and acne scarring on my back, im gonna get on accutane sooon but anybody know about scarring like what helps, tanning helps hide it.
Well scarring is when you get an abrasion your cells start to multiply to fill the void. Scarring is caused by connective tissue beating the epithelial to the surface. Rubbing on scars can break down the scar tissue. Aloe vera can help. There are also hundreds of otc treatments but I havent used any.
Message a cream called scar zone into it.
Using it now and seems to be working pretty well.
Accutane usually takes at least 2 weeks to be effective (to kick) and it is not for mild acne, it is only for serious cases and it is for long term therapies (so you have to take it for long time, more than 2-3 months usually). Moreover Accutane has sides I don’t like. I wouldn’t combine it with steroids as well. It is only for serious acne cases.
4-5 gr of pantothenic acid is better and safer and usually it works.
i used accutane for 3 or 4 months when i was a teen.
it was awesome. i don't get acne EVER anymore and im 25. i can eat whatever i want and use lotion on my face if i want and not get acne lol.
b vitamins can't do that.........definitely would get monthly blood tests though since accutane is essentially mega dosed vitamin A. it hurts liver levels because vitamin A is fat soluble and gets stored.
i didn't have the super bad acne though, you know the puss and all that, im glad my derma still prescribed it.
For me, the action IS the juice.
Tanning actually makes scarring worse. it makes it seem better in the short run but is just more damage to your skin. After your accutane run I highly suggest you do microderm/acid peel treatments. 6 treatments over a 6 month period and your scars will be almost unnoticeable (depending on how deep your scars are). I did the treatments after my acne treatments and I am glad I did my face looks 100x better can't see scarring at all.
I had good success using accutane cream on my face on cycle before. That stuff is toxic orally from what i heard....always used topical. But either way the shyt works
I use the white bar of dial soap it's the safer one. Cleans up my acne give that a try. Heard head and shoulders does wonders too
