    scars & accutane

    hey ...i just finished a course of accutane and i was wondering if accutane helps with scarring...i have some red marks, which is not bad...but i have little dents or pock marks which really bother me...does accutane help those as well? i hear that the months after accutane your skin gets better....is that true? or...is there anything i can use for the pock marks? or is it too soon after accutane?

    You can have the pits filled with a cosmetic filler, but you'll need to keep it up to keep your results.

    Question Re: scars & accutane

    My derm told me to wait one year after my cycle of Accutane to consider any treatments for scarring. She said my skin would do a lot of healing on its own. Now, a year later, I have scarring. If anyone knows of anything over the counter to use, please post it. I can't afford a plastic surgeon. It's not as bad as I'm making it sound, but it bothers me. I know there are a lot of microdermabrasion kits available. Has anyone tried them? Thanks.
