So I'm hearing alot accutane helps with scars do they mean the shallow ones or deep ones too? and how does accutane make scarring go away.....I thought it was just a acne drug. :think:

MY derm told me it doesnt help with scarring but it will prevent new ones forming.

Your Derm was right. Accutane doesn't really help with current scars, and sometimes can even make scars appear deeper or red marks more red.

In some cases, the exfoliation that Accutane causes does help improve existing old scars. It certainly improved my formerly deepest and widest scar. The only way Accutane helps stop new scars is by preventing new acne as your skin is actually more prone to scarring of all types/for many reasons while taking Accutane.

Strangely enough, the shallow scars I had before I started the course have basically disappeared, but my skin texture is so wack it looks as if I've suddenly gotten a whole bunch of scars on my cheeks and other places that were formally clear. It's really bizarre.
