Isotretinoin is the most effective treatment available for acne.
Isotretinoin is very good for:
• Inflamed (red) spots. Isotretinoin clears inflamed spots like red papules, pustules and nodules. Isotretinoin does this by stopping new inflamed spots from developing, and causes existing inflamed spots to flatten and resolve.
• Cysts. Isotretinoin is good at reducing cysts that arise in acne.
• Comedones. Isotretinoin is also effective for comedones which may be open or closed. Very large closed comedones might not clear with Isotretinoin and are best treated with hyfrecation before starting a course of Isotretinoin. Find out more about hyfrecation of comedones.
• Greasiness. Isotretinoin reduces grease production in the skin and many people will notice their skin and hair become less shiny.
