I am 15. I started getting acne in 5th grade and it got more and more severe. I became afraid of getting scarring and my acne was getting very bad. All i can say about this product is that it never effected me negatively besides drying me out, but it worked wonderfully. i was soooo afraid of... READ MORE

I struggled with severe acne for about 3 years. Itried everything under the sun, until I finally gave in and started the Accutane treatment. My ONLY regret is not starting this treatment sooner! I was treated for roughly 5-6 months. I did not see results right away, infact, my skin got... READ MORE

I had cystic acne all over my back and face that never went away. Ever since I was 13 I had it. I tried EVERYTHING, Tetracycline, Doxicyline, Benzacaine cream, and tons of other stuff. Nothing ever worked. So I did this as a last resort, my own dermatologist said he wouldn't prescribe it to... READ MORE

I never had much of an acne problem. But after several sessions of laser hair on my face I started to get lots of papular-pustular acne. I tried all the different topicals and antibiotics for acne. It also started on areas outside my face so maybe it was just my age (mid... READ MORE

I would highly recommend this acne treatment. I had tried everything, every type of topical cream and antibiotic possible. I chose to take Accutane because I had extremely bad acne. Acne had taken over my life where I felt bad about going out in public and definitely did not ever want to have a... READ MORE

When I was about 17, I was fed up. I had tried everything for my acne. My zits were beginning to get their own zits! I had tried everything over the counter and some of it seemed to make my skin get worse! Sea Breeze, Oxy Pads, Clearasil, ProActive...None of it worked. So, I went to the... READ MORE

First Update: I've been struggling with acne for about 5 years now, ever since I finished high school. (I'll upload pics later on). I've tried it all, much like the rest of you - Proactive, anti-biotics, creams, scrubs, and everything in between. Sometimes the acne would recede a little, but... READ MORE

I have struggled with acne since I was 15. It's horrible. I can't wear summer clothes or a bathing suit for fear of exposing it. I feel like I'm always in hiding and I just want to be normal. I see other women with nice skin and it makes me feel hopeless knowing I will never have that. I'm tired... READ MORE

I have battled acne my whole life but it wasn't until I was 40 that I started getting deep painful cyst acne. My dermatologist also believes I have some rosacea also so he prescribed me accutane. I take 40mg on odd days and 80mg on even days. I have taken my 12 pill and I have broken out... READ MORE

I've been experiencing severe acne for about 6 months. My GP prescribed me some creams and pills, but after a month with no results I was referred to Davin Lim. Davin has given me Accutane, and although other treatments were ineffective, this is apparently sure to work. I have very dry skin,... READ MORE

I'm a 26 year old female and I've had pretty severe acne since I was in middle school. I've tried everything. Antibiotics, pills, face washes, acne facials, pore extractions, diets, & topical gels. To name just a few. Accutane has always been in the back of my mind but I've always been wary of... READ MORE

I have suffered acne on and off since I was 14. My acne hit its peak in 2011 after a VERY stressful life changing event and it got BAD. Painful cystic acne all over my face. I decided I would give Accutane a try. It did get worse before it got better and I did have side effects....nosebleeds.... READ MORE

I am starting accutane in 3 days and I feel alone and scared. After trying (and failing) to express my fears to family and friends (none of which have dealt with severe acne), I decided maybe this would be a good place to go to talk about my journey. I have been suffering from moderate-severe... READ MORE

I did a course of accutane when I was 21 and had severe nodulocystic acne. My acne was so bad that it could not be covered with makeup. I tried EVERYTHING. Name an acne treatment - the pill, every prescription and non-prescription cream, vitamins/supplements, home remedies, fasting, diets,... READ MORE

I have had acne for years and am so over it. I have tried all sorts of oral and topical meds and nothing kept it away. I am going in for blood on Friday and have my appointment to start on Monday. I am super nervous, but so ready to be done with my acne! Question: for those that have contacts,... READ MORE

I always had cystic acne, oily skin, enormous gaping pores, blackheads everywhere for as long as I can remember. I got acne very early in my life around late elementary school i would say. I had tried everything from different routines, products, every acne kit, the all natural route, less... READ MORE

I was hesitant to try this because of the side effects I read about. I am in my 5th month and so far so good, minimal side effects, dry skin and lips but nothing that lotion can't help so far. The lips have been the worst, but for the first time in 15 yrs I am completely clear! I do regret not... READ MORE

I was on accutane when I was 14 and it worked wonders. After years went by and birth of two daughters I chose to go back on Accutane because my face was breaking out like I was a teenager. Granted, some of it was hormonal, some Roscea, and some was cystic acne but Accutane improvement my skin... READ MORE
