Acne scar removal after Accutane course?

Recommended Posts

My derm suggested I get my acne scars removed after I'm fully cleared and done with my Accutane course. How long do I have to wait post Accutane to have the scars treated? Also, we didn't talk much about it but what do they do exactly to get rid of the scars? Something with lasers? Does it hurt and does it work :) also how long does the area of your face stay red? (btw my worst scars are on my temples and some on my cheeks, but I dont think they are the "icepick" kind)

You shouldn't do something surgical with them for at least 1 year due to decreased healing of the skin from accutane. Scars do heal with time and by using a topical retinoid, you will prevent acne from coming back but not least it will help depressed scars over time.
