- Are your clients thinking about doing Accutane (or it's generic?)
I'm not a advocate of it as I feel that it has been overprescribed. The side effects are serious. I've really only encountered a few that I would suggest its use (cystic acne on the face and body). But, if I have a client who is already on it I watch them like a hawk. My rule is IF EVERYTHING ELSE FAILS consider it. And I insist on blood work results or I will not work with them.
I agree that there are better alternatives to 99% of acne problems.Last replied by Jeff Berns on Wednesday, 27 July 2011
