Accutane lightening my red marks?

Recommended Posts

I started accutane for my second course about 3 weeks ago now. 40mg, one pill every second day.

Side effects wise, i haven't noticed anything but a little chapped lip. However, my acne has stopped appearing again (it wasnt super bad when i started my second course, i just noticed the same sign as my first huge breakout and wanted to play it safe). Anyways, I've always had some nasty red marks, but it seems like their starting to fade again whereas i thought they had stopped. Not sure if it's the accutane, but it's the only thing i've changed, but my red marks are definately getting lighter.

Is this normal?

Even if it isnt, i'm loving it
