Done with Accutane... now what?

So I've finally finished my 4 month 80 mg a day Accutane round! I never had an IB and my skin got better immediately!

However, I'm terrified that my acne with come back with a vengeance!

Anyone who has finished Accutane and has a great regimen for keeping your healthy skin intact, PLEASE share your secrets! :) Doesn't matter if it's vitamins, washes, foods, moisturizers -- if it works, please fill me in!

Also, was anyone left with terrible, pitted scars? My derm says that it will eventually fade since Accutane stays in your tissue for so long... but she also mentioned doing some Retin-A or glyco procedures... anyone have any experience there? Should I leave it and let Accutane heal it... or go in for a peel in a few months?

After you're done with accutane, you have to wait at Least 6 months before you can do chemical peels, lasers and etc. Why? cause your epidermis was thinned when taking accutane and it needs time to thicken up again.
