Anything for scars while on Accutane?

Recommended Posts

I have been taking Accutane for 2 months. I have some not-so big indented scars on my temple (approximately 6 months old), and was wondering if there is anything I can do to either fade or help 'heal' the scars, while I am on Accutane.

I realize doing anything harsh to your skin is a no-no on Accutane. But some of the scar treatments seem like they are intended to 'heal', and are not acidic or rough or anything.



BTW -- nice site/message board.

The best thing to do while on Accutane is " nothing" any harsh chemicals can do more harm than good. If you want to try something safe use the silicone scar sheets ( they contain no chemicals ) The results are slow but used regularly and as often as possible the results can be quite good. Mederma is an alternative, but I have had clients who are sensitive to it as well, so if there is any irritation just stick to pure Aloe Gel or Hyaluronic Gel.
