“Accutane And Skin Care- Please Help!”
Now That You Have Made The Serious Decision To Embark On The Accutane Adventure…Lets Help You With Caring For Your Changing Skin.
What is Accutane???
Accutane is a prescribed form of vitamin A. It reduces the amount of oil released by oil glands in your skin, and helps your skin renew itself more quickly. Accutane is used to treat severe nodular acne. It is usually given after other acne medicines or antibiotics have been tried without successful treatment of symptoms. This drug is the most contraindicative to skin care due to it’s alteration of the skin’s PH.
Now, Accutane use may cause the following skin changes so skin care must be carefully chosen. If you take it, take it seriously.
Inhibition of follicular keratinization that can result in: dry, peeling and or inflamed lips, dry skin, eyes and mucus membranes, red skin, rashes including Eczema, and increased sunburn susceptibility. It also reduces the enzyme collagenase which in turn can result in hypertrophic scaring if the skin is ruptured, for up to seven years after stopping the drug. Other side-effects include: increased triglycerides, low red blood cell count (anemia), low white blood cell count (lowered immunity to infection), low platelet count (increased risk of bleeding), liver enzyme abnormalities, hair loss, pressure build-up behind the eyes, headaches, nausea, depression and most seriously birth defects.
We must stress the crucial importance of wearing sunscreen! While using Accutane…definitely stay away from professional salon treatments like, microdermabrasion, laser, chemical peels, or any other new machine offered to you, no hair removal like waxing and bleaching either. Wait 6-12 months after Accutane use. Gentle Calming Facials are ok, provided you are honest with your skin care professional about your Accutane use.
Accutane is a retinoid. Retinoids are powerful exfoliating agents. When you are on Accutane, there will be no need to use any other exfoliating agent. In fact, the use of other agents may cause irritation. If you are on a low dose, it may be tolerable, but definitely discuss this with your treating dermatologist. If your skin is not too dry and sensitive you may be able to use a gentle exfoliant once a week. If you experience extra irritation or redness then discontinue.
To prolong and maintain the results In The Months Post Accutane…
Some people experience dark spots/patches with Accutane use so switching to a gentler retinoid exfoliant does wonders. Oil production will return within several months after stopping Accutane, but not to the degree it was before.
PS. Too many acne sufferers go untreated for far too long. No one need suffer with acne-today there are far more effective therapy options than ever. If you have acne that doesn’t respond to over-the-counter treatment, please see your skin specialist
