    accutane for oily skn

    hi guys, I don’t get much acne but I have acne type skin. I’ll be going on light accutane maybe in May and using some new products.

    has anyone here been on accutane short term for mild acne?

    Yep, was on Accutane for 6 months. You will be hard pressed to find a Derm who would prescribe it without having acne issues. And your Derm will tell you using any kind of products other then extremely mild cleanser and moisturizer. Nothing abrasive, nothing that contains any type of harsh ingredients.

    I had great success taking Accutane. Would do it again in a heart beat. I had cystic acne, battled it for years, tried everything under the sun, from numerous antibiotics, to numerous topicals, etc. Derm finally convinced me to try Accutane, it cleared things 100%, never had an issue again
