My pros and cons with accutane (isotretinoin) prescribed drug from my doctor. I am on my fourth month and I thought I would update you all on everything.
My dosage is 40mg
I had cystic acne and textured skin (a lot of white heads and black heads)
My skin type is oily and this drug was my last option. There are many risks with this so please do your research and ask your doctor as everyone's symptoms with this are different.
Black heads were the first thing that went from my nose, forehead and chin in the second week. (I had to change my diet and drink 3 liters of water daily)
Makes my nose appear smaller
I don't have to wash my hair as often because it stays looking fresh for two weeks.
Lips became pinker
Whole body feels exfoliated
Noticed results 3rd week
Makeup application is much smoother
I only have to use concealer now
Blood test every month
Dry, flakey lips
Flakey skin (it's taking the oil out)
All the acne comes out to the surface so it's scary when you first see it.
Cheeks take the longest to clear
These are my side affects. Everyone is different. If you have questions please ask away! - F #soniaxfyza #dubai
