Post Thinning Skin from Accutane?

Anyone ever experienced thinning skin that veins are visible to the naked eye? My extremeties and face have these veins showing that you can make a map out of it. They are not protruding, just transparent. It is not a pretty sight. It's basically all over my legs and arms. I will ask my derm about it the next time I have an appt. I don't remember having this symptom the first time I was on Accutane which was about 4 years ago. I mentioned on my previous posts that I have noticed the softening of my skin all over my body, then after that I notice that (of course) they are thinning, I just did not expect to see my veins this much. Any comments?
