I would also try asking for Kenalog plus 5-FU added.  It is a chemotherapy drug, but don't let that freak you out.  It is used to stop cells from proliferating.  The kenalog is meant to flatten raised scarring and the the 5-FU inhibits their reformation.  You'd need to find a dermatologist who is up to date on their literature, because some are clueless and don't even know about this particular use.

Silicone sheets are like $20 at any drug store.  If you are patient I'd give it a shot, otherwise pulse dye lasers like Vbeam would work.

I agree with Factoid.  I've read a few articles online that early intervention can lessen the severity of the forming acne scars.  Dr. Davin Lim, who is well known on this board and has some fantastic before and afters on his website has mentioned that early acne scars can be guided to heal in a more favorable way.  

I know he mentioned it several times on his website, but I can't find it right now.  I think he mentioned that RF devices can help early scars that are just beginning to form.  Ematrix is one that is available in the US, and there might be others.

I've long suspected that for some people, healing abilities do change after Accutane.  I noticed this myself.  I had several punch excisions before Accutane and they healed well.  After Accutane, punch excisions healed poorly.  I suspect it has to do with the decrease in oil production after Accutane as it shrinks the oil glands substantially.  

You might want to start off slow and monitor it.
