Can Accutane be a preventative measure before breakouts?

I'm wondering if Accutane should be used as a preventative measure against possible future breakouts for people who are reaching the adolescent years and whose parents have broken out. I wonder if a low dose for kids can be used as a sort of preventative measure for acne?

I'm 47 and might take a low dose of accutane for my moderate rosacea. My dermatologist might try it.

Why do some say accutane causes scars?

no, that is not what accutane treats. it does prevent acne, but is only prescribed if the patient actually has acne.
