Hey, BP definitely lead to my skin scarring. I've had acne on and off for years and only after using BP religiously for a few months did I start to notice my skin just wouldn't heal and was starting to scar. Give yourself sometime after acne for things to get back to normal and let your skin heal. I have notice a great improvement since getting my acne under control a year a go, the only thing I have used is Differin and some aha cleansers and serums, nothing invasive and I'm pretty happy with how things turned out. It can take up to two years for skin re model and it's always changing, yes scars are permanent but the change in depth and size until your skin is completely done healing so give things time and be kind to your skin, lots of moisture and nothing too harsh. Maybe a gentle retinoid cream when you have finished Accutane might help to smooth things out a bit xx

27 years old. Been suffering on and off acne for the last 10-13 years. Can't remember exactly when it started. My early twenties were probably my clearest, I think mainly due to birth control, finally thought I had cracked it last year, clearest skin of my life, but when you think things are going well it comes back to bite you! My skin has been going downhill since about September time 2012. I'd say the last few months have been the worst. Currently on Dianette and Differin since middle of June, I have a wee blog so will keep everyone posted.
Good to know you're not alone in all this.
