Post Experience accutane

Has anyone come off accutane to find that you have some indentations left from acne.(scars).

Did they smoooth over the next 1 year or what??

I know my red marks will fade with time because they are NOT scars, like many people think. Just had to clarify that.

Thanks

Any scarring that I had was there before I started acutane. My skin was clear within a week (after the four months of taking acutane) and some of the scarring was actually minimized. Acutane is high levels of Retin A...Retin A is known to help reduce wrinkles and scarring.
