Dead Skin - Isotretinoin

hey all, this is my first post but i hope you can help.

i have been on a course of isotretinoin for my acne and my the treatment is working as my acne is stoppig and fading. my issue is that i have one old red acne mark on the top of my cheekbone that hasnt faded for over a year or so. since i started this treatment i have a lot of dead/new layer of skin which covered the red acne mark. the problem is this build up of dead skin is dark (dirty) and when i get rid of the dead skin i can see my old red acne mark again.

i shower every morning and rinse my face with water every night. i dont use any other products for my face but im thinking i should to keep my face clean. what do you think?

All those red marks (post inflammation hyperpigmentation) will fade with time. Sometimes it can take up to more than a year, plus accutane slow down wound healing so it probably will take slightly longer than usual.
