In Topic: 8 Months After Accutane And I Still Have Scars

06 March 2015 - 02:38 PM

scars usually become more visible during the tane treatment and after…. but with time they might get better, although not in my case:) If by marks you mean pigmentation, it will definitely get lighter or disappear within 2-3 years on its own or faster if you do treatments (laser etc…) I agree with the above post-accutane does not treat scars but it sounded from your post that you expected it to. In any case, dryness should have subsided by now but if it did not then that has to be addressed with dermatologist. My oil returned 1 months after accutane was stopped. But oil returned together with acne as before:) good luck to you!


I know I've been through it all. But my point is I used to have very smooth skin and very mild acne I never had any scars. What has given me scars Is the initial breakout with accutane which has left me with old looking skin!

well then, you have to leave it be for now and treat scars with laser or some other alternative late,r because, in my opinion and from my personal experience, scars do not get significantly better unless you laser treat them or just accept them as they are.:)

My face started to clear only on the 4th month. Patience would be the key word here:)

In Topic: 70 Days Left On Accutane...worried I Wont Be Clearedi

It can clear in 70 days…the problem might be that acne returns after it clears and once you stopped taking the tane. Do not worry about it now, complete the course first:) good luck!
