My doc just prescribed oratane. Is it same as accutane. Will this clear my face from acne and the dark spots. Also it took me ages to find is it dange?

Hyperpigmentation. Oratane will definitely treat your acne but not the dark spots. The dark spots are what is called postinflamatory hyper pigmentation. Postinflammatory hyperpigmentation is an acquired hypermelanosis occurring after cutaneous inflammation or injury that can arise in all skin types, but more frequently affects skin-of-color patients, including african americans, hispanics/latinos, asians and others.
