Accutane for mild acne

Accutane for mild acne is just fine. Often we try topicals or other oral medications first, especially for mild acne. But some acne is just resilient to treatment, so Accutane is definitely a good solution at that point. You will most likely be on the medication for a shorter course length than others with more severe or cystic acne.
