Accutane results in a long term remission from acne, after one course, in 80% of patients. 20% (including myself) require a second or third course.
Interestingly, the greasiness often returns without the acne after Accutane, so don't panic yet.
I use a good cleanser for oily skin: Estee Lauder's Sparkling clean cleanser. I also use a topical retinoid called Differin (adapalene 0.1%). This product did not work for me before Accutane, but is now effective.
