Does Accutane cause deep scarring?

Recommended Posts

I don't have extremely severe acne, but I've been going to the dermatologist for about 4 and a half years now and nothing has worked, so he's given me accutane. I was wondering if it always causes deep scarring? Like I said, my acne is not too horrible, but it's all over my face. I'm only 15 and am a bit worried about the outcomes of this side effect. I have no deep scarring as of now, and I'm beginning the regime today. I'm only on 20mg pills.

Thanks for all of your help.
