How much time usually needed to notice improvement after starting accutane?
Doctor Answers 1
Accutane and expectations
Thank you for your question. Any acne treatments take a few weeks before any results are noticeable due to the nature and pathophysiology of acne and the skin. In my experience, it takes at least 6-8 weeks of therapy to start to notice any improvement with acne. I highly recommend you consult with your prescribing dermatologist regarding your treatment, expectations, dosing, etc. Take care and good luck.
