    After inhibiting sebum production with drugs, does it return back to where it was after stopping? For example, how is the case with isotretinoin? Perhaps somebody knows.
    I understand the sebaceous glands always die and regenerate anyway, because their secretion is holocrine, so they should 100% regenerate after taking a drug that stops their proliferation.
