Accutane takes several months to work
Accutane takes several months, if not a year, to fully work. You need to maintain your regimen and dosage that your dermatologist suggested. While the active more red acne may have cleared, the underlying more cystic type acne can take a lot longer. Additionally, you may need to have other treatments done if what is left behind is scarring and not actually acne.
