Accutane week 2/red marks



So I'm now on my 10th day of Accutane, and so far I haven't really experienced any side effects. My lips are a little dry but nothing terrible so far. One thing I have noticed in the last couple days is that my skin is extremely oily, even more than before I started Accutane. It's always been oily but now there's like this thick layer of oil on my forehead/cheekbones. It almost makes my face feel sticky. I'm kind of surprised this is happening because I was expecting the complete opposite. I'm sure the dryness will come soon though. As for improvement, my breakouts have mildly cleared but I'm still getting them. One question I have that I can't seem to get a clear answer on is will Accutane help with red marks? I know it won't help with scarring, but since it's promoting cell turnover, will this help the red marks heal faster?
