I tried low does accutane some time ago (20mg every other day) and it really helped with my oily face and helped moderately with redness.
I am wanting to try VERY low dose (about 5mg every other day) just to help control oil and improve skin texture and appearance of large pores. However, I also plan on doing VBeam/IPL. The normal reaction is to not touch accutane when doing VBeam/IPL, but if the accutane dosage is very low, is this still a possibility? I will talk to my doctor about it, but I would like to hear some general opinions about whether or not this would even be something to consider.
The problem is that IPL/laser can take a long time (several months) and I would really like to start up again to get some relief from my severe oily skin. I have noticed that the oil even tends to aggravate my rosacea.
