Accutane weakens your skin and makes it MUCH more prone to scarring. Accutane destroyed my face and now I have many scars that will be there for ever.

So, no, I don't think accutane is very good for scarring

I agree with the previous statement. In the process of clearing up your skin, it can actually result in some scarring because you tend to breakout quite a bit during your first two weeks. I know it has resulted in at least 1 scar that wasn't there before I started Accutane. However, I would rather have that than continue to breakout and risk even more scarring.
