I've been on sotret 10mg for 2months now and still breaking out badly.. My entire course if for months. I'm also getting acne peel done 2 times every month and using mild cleanser and mild moisturiser.. Nothing else. When will I see results? My face has never been this horrible my whole life.. It wasn't so bad when I started off.. Just mild acne. Now I've got big cystic acne.. And they are leaving scars. I'm getting married in 1.5 month and I'm panicking a lot. Please help!

Skin care needs to be customized based on the presenting complaints. There are different ways to achieve a flawless skin after acne and it needs medical interventions. Acne treatment has multiple stages - to control new breakouts, to clear the sequalae (pigmentation and scars) and to prevent a relapse. If you have active acne lesions, it should be controlled on priority basis. Acne scar and pores can be treated with subcision, dermaroller, fractional CO2 lasers, chemical peels and likewise. Remember combining treatment modalities help to achieve desired results earlier. Your dermatologist will decide a treatment plan for you after a consultation. Apart from active pharmaceutical medicines, a healthy diet and lifestyle is mandatory to achieve results. Best wishes Dr MK Agarwala
