Alright im not sure if this is a little premature since i've only been on accutane for 12 days now, but for the most part or at least on my chest i don't really have any active zits but instead a lot of little dried out red marks all over. My question is weather i can expect these marks to fade out while on accutane or will i have to wait until my course is complete before i see improvement? Also is it the same deal for scaring, will i see improvement while on accutane or after its over? Any help is greatly appreciated.

they will fade mostly as the redness and severity of your face dies down.

i have some scarring but very light and nothing make up cant cover.

Im on week 12 and ive noticed that the red marks I had prior to starting accutane have almost diminished (since being on accutane), but the ones developed during accutane are at full force.

I would think they should fade simply because you'll stop breaking out as much and they will get a chance to heal. smile.gif At least I hope that's what happens for me too!
