Are there any scar treatments i can use 1 month after accutane?

Recommended Posts

i've been off accutane for 6 weeks and i have really uneven skin and scars on my forehead and cheeks, is there any form of light peel that is safe to use at this point in time, thanks. (I know a light peel wont do much for the scars but it might do something to the marks)

You could ask your doctor for a prescription for Retin A. That would begin helping the skin. Over the long term Retin A can make significant differences in scarring and texture and color. Make sure you wear SPF 30 sunscreen. :) Retin A might still be too hard on skin that's just finished with Accutane.
