Keloids after Scar Treatment

Recommended Posts

Has anyone heard of keloids developing on your face if you have scar treatment too early after using Accutane? My derm said that this was one of the reasons why they advise you to wait at least 6 months after using Accutane for any scar treatment. She also said that they don't know why it might result in keloids.

I always did wonder why people weren't meant to have scar treatments so soon after Accutane. I always thought it was because skin gets thinner. Perhaps this is the reason. Thanks for sharing.
