Our expert says:
ROACCUTANE is NOT a cure (nor does it claim to be)for acne and patients often require a 2nd or even 3rd course. It is simply one of the more effective treatment options and is often used for more severe cases.
At the end of a course of Roaccutane your acne should have cleared up significantly. Most patients notice their skin condition continues to improve even after Roaccutane treatment is finished.
ROACCUTANE contains the active ingredient isotretinoin and is used to treat
acne. It belongs to a group of medicines called retinoids, which are similar to vitamin A - Retinoids work by reducing the amount of the oily substance (i.e.
sebum) made by glands in your skin, reducing bacteria, reducing inflammation and opening clogged pores.
