Hi was wondering if anyone could tell me how effective accutane is and how it is to go private in the uk. I’ve had acne for nearly 5 years. It has improved on my face over the past year but I also get it on my chest and back and the creams and tablets I’ve had only work for so long and it just comes back again. I’ve also got a lot of scars on my face, back and chest from it. The spots clear but then they just come back again after about a week everytime

Accutane worked well for me, i had everything you listed there, severe cystic acne for years and on my body. I had to go private as GPs don't like giving it out and will make you try random things for years first. I advise you to go private if you have the money. The scarring faded a lot too, however 4 years on i have some pit scarring on my cheeks still, but i know dermos offer those chemical peel treatments at discounted rates while youre on accutane so i'd advise considering scar treatment alongside the meds if you wish, just more effective. My skin generally is great now very rarely get a spot even during my period.

99% effective, it shrinks the glands that produce sebum. Best stuff ever, first timers can get along fine with a piddly 10mg dosage, but going private is expensive. You have to pay for the blood tests as well as the medication. Treclin gel is also very good, won't shrink glands but it turns over your skin cells rapidly so that the clogged pores occur less.
