are you talking about actual scars or PIH (redmarks) which are often confused with scars. accutane will not get rid of scars, but it will give your skin time and the PIH will clear by itself. also it will prevent possible future scarring.

no, but it will prevent new acne, which will prevent furthur scarring.

My derm said to an extent accutane would have collagen remoulding, and smaller scars may look better..

Don't know if it's true :P

Accutane got rid of two keloid scars i had on my nose. one on the side of my nose was there for years, then i had a huge one towards the end of my nose. they are both gone! i couldn't believe it. and that was only within the first month of accutane. my nose is smoother than ever now.
