Fading red marks while on accutane?

Hey guys! I've been on accutane for about 2mnths now and it has done wonders for my skin. At the moment I usually only have between 1-3 pimples at a time.

The thing is I have a lot of redmarks (mostly on the sides of my face) and I was wondering what i can do (if anything) to treat them while on accutane?

ATM, Im using a Neutrogena SA cleanser morning and night, Neutrogena oil free moisturiser in the moring and cetaphil moisturiser at night, this regimen seems to be working quite well.

Thanks in advance

im on day24 of accutane. and its strange, my red marks seem to fade faster than ever!!! what used to take like two months to fade now takes only two weeks!!! its crazy... i ges its coz our face sheds a million layers a day while on accutane. its funny really, coz i thought accutane fades them more slowly... but hey, im not complaining. :P

bump. .......i also want to know also about fading red marks while on accutane. I've been using aspirin masks mostly. I think it helps alittle...I'm afraid to use egg white + lemon and ACV which seem to be very drying....

I was on accutane twice, worked very well the first time but I went back on a second time to help treat my chest and body, long story short I was left with red marks on my cheeks that about 2 yrs later still havent faded

that being said, I started using the bp regimen which im sure caused the red marks bc I never had them before

my advice to you is use the ACV, Im not sure about while your on tane but it works very well on recent pimple marks, takes them away quickly for me which otherwise would take veryyyyyy long..I havent stuck on it for anything longer than about a month so I cant truthfully say how effective it is for the long term, but it certainly works much better on short term/newer marks than anything else, give a try, very diluted if u want while on tane and see how your skin reacts

... i suggest nothing wile on accutane. maybe something with tretinoin if your face can handle it. i suggest stievamycin thats what i used.

also maybe some peels 6 months after accutane.

best + guaranteed to work treatment: time

You don't read a book while riding a bike. What I mean is, be as easy on your skin as possible while on Tane. I tried a few things that just damaged me more.
