Question About Accutane and Skin Cells

So I'm confused :think:

Some websites say that accutane suppresses production of new skin cells while others say it increases skin cell turn over. I thought I heard my derm say it increases skin cell turn over but I want to be sure. I mean the latter makes more sense since wouldn't you want to get new skin and get the older stuff out?

I'm asking because if it increases skin cell turn over, shouldn't it help with red marks since you are generating new skin at a faster rate? Thanks in advance!
