How long did accutane take for you

Hopefully, within about 3 weeks i'll be on accutane. I was just wonderin how long it is gonna take, does it depend on how severe your acne is? If you have been on accutane, please share how long it took for you. My senior prom is comin up May 20th and I wanna be clear!

I have acne on my face, chest, back, and shoulders. I have cysts on my back. Will my chest and face most likely clear up faster?

Re: How long did accutane take for you

I am at the end of my second month (I get another months supply this Thursday.)
The first week there was a significant improvement in the oil on my face, and the first month it began to clear up a little bit, but as of right now it has regressed, which is COMPLETELY NORMAL. The derm I am going to said most don't get results until the 3rd or 4th month...but it really depends on the severity of the acne and who you are, everyone is different.
Good Luck!
