Accutane doesn't really help scars anyway except that it stops the acne that causes them.

As far as scarring goes, there's no magic lotion for that. A topical retinoid can improve shallow scarring, but if your scars are deeper you'll need a more extreme treatment. There is a sub-forum towards the end of the list that deals with scars, you might want to browse over there.
