Are the scars you're referring to either indented or raised? If not, they're probably just red marks from prior acne (post inflammatory hyperpigmentation, if you wanna look it up). I've got that pretty bad, too. It sucks looking like you have acne in places you don't, but it's certainly favorable to having legit scarring in the long run, which usually requires expensive cosmetic work for significant improvement as clearly_dreaming mentioned. PIH most always fades with time. There's a subforum here dedicated to it: http://www.acne.org/...eft-after-acne/. Unfortunately, we can't apply many of the solutions to it while on Accutane. What we CAN do, though, is apply a good sunblock; more tanning -> more pigmentation -> more time to heal. I'm just starting to use sunblock regularly, hopefully it will make things more manageable . It might be tempting, especially if you're fair-skinned like me, to try to hide the red marks with a tan, but trust me, it's best to take care of it asap. I'm also like you in that I've never really seen my face without acne; since puberty, I've always had something active.
I have big hopes that my scars will also fade. Any advice on scar treatments from people who have had success?
Anyway, good luck! I've found that people who have cystic acne along the jawline seem to always be cleared up after their Accutane course is said and done. It might get worse before it gets better, but just remember that it has to come up sometime, so better now than later!
