... accutane? I was on it twice and I believe the first time I started was when I was 19. Thanks!
I think for acne you can take isotretinoin from 12 years onwards.
Isotretinoin is a 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.
Isotretinoin is used to treat severe nodular acne that has not responded to other treatments, including antibiotics.
