I had severe acne for about two years then my dermatologist put me on accutane. When to Quit Accutane?
Doctor Answers 2
Thank you for your question. If Accutane is taken without reaching your goal dose, the results will be subtherapeutic. There is a higher chance that acne can recur. It may or may not be of the same severity. You will also need maintenance with skin care products, under the supervision of a Board Certified Dermatologist there will be less chance of flare ups while you are in college.
I hope this helps.
