What is Accutane?

Accutane, also known as Isotretinoin, is a naturally occurring derivative of vitamin A and falls into the class of drugs called retinoids. This powerful drug is known for clearing up bouts of painful acne and is also noted for combatting overwhelming acne that is unresponsive to alternative antibiotics and creams. Accutane is a viable option for those struggling with uncomfortable nodular acne. Nodules are inflammatory lesions that result from abnormal tissue under the skin. Accutane has been shown to help combat nodule breakouts that need prompt attention. Long Island Dermatology finds Accutane to be a suitable choice for the right candidates for its ability to:

  • Kill bacteria in the pores that can cause acne and inflammation
  • Reduce the production of oil on the skin
  • Slow down the growth of skin cells that can clog pores

Accutane Side Effects

The concerns most people have about Accutane are related to the side effects. We want to ensure our patients understand the side effects associated with this drug so they can make an informed decision when considering this treatment. We only suggest those with severe (many) nodular breakouts take Accutane. Patients must understand and agree to receive this type of medication carefully and under professional guidance due to the following possible side effects:

  • Congenital disabilities (Do not take Accutane if pregnant)
  • Short-term liver problems
  • Increased cholesterol
  • Mental health issues
  • Dry eyes
  • Chapped lips
  • Sensitivity to sunlight
  • Muscle pain

How Does Accutane Work?

Accutane works by shrinking the oil glands in the skin to help reduce the amount of oil that’s produced. For those who struggle with oily skin, this excess of oil is often responsible for clogging pores and treating acne. Accutane safeguards your skin by ensuring your oil glands are controlled and less capable of producing pimples. Patients who qualify for this medication typically require a five-to-six-month course of treatment to fight severe nodular acne. And some may even require a second course to treat their skin condition adequately. We will be sure to discuss all these possibilities and more when you visit us at our Rockville Centre office.
