At the end of the study period, isotretinoin was found to be highly effective in the clearing of refractory rosacea lesions.

Prolonged remissions of cystic and conglobate acne with 13-cis-retinoic acid.
TLDR
Clinical toxicity was limited to the skin and mucous membranes in most patients and was dose dependent and rapidly reversible upon discontinuation of therapy; the mechanism of action of 13-cis-retinoic acid in the therapy of acne probably involves a direct inhibitory effect of the drug on the sebaceous gland.
