getting rid of red marks while on accutane?

Recommended Posts

hi my derm told me not to use anything else while on this course, e.g clearasil, but i want to get rid of my red marks. i used bio-oil before accutane and while this helped a little, it provoked more acne.

but my main question: can i use something to remove these marks, while not increasing acne or doing any damage to me?

if so what?

thanks very much

I have been on accutane and in all honestly there isnt anything that can really help your marks. you could try emu oil (something gentle) but from what I have heard it doesnt help much. You have to go through this roller coaster and I feel for you, but once its over then you can concentrate on healing your left over marks without having to worry about actual acne. Its one hell of a long journey (maybe triple your course time) but eventually they will be gone.

By the way I am about 3 months off since my course and they have faded about 25% and my marks were moderate (not too deep but not very superficial either)
