I suffered from cystic acne from age 12- 26 when I finally went on accutane. My mother also required accutane treatment, I knew this was where I was headed all along. I had to wait to be done making babies basically. I'll be honest, it is a terrible 6 months, but I rarely get a pimple now I would have gone through much worse for the results I have! I wish I had pictures to share, but I don't. Sorry. If you have any questions please ask away!
