Does accutane improve rolling scars?

Hi :)

Scars suck. It's enough that we have to deal with acne at all, but then to haunt us after...Rude.

Im going on accutane in about a week and within the last year my acne has started to leave rolling marks on my cheeks. They are very shallow and if they werent pink they probabally wouldnt be as much of bother. Will accutane help with the appearance at all? Also, will it shrink enlarged pores?

Thanks!

Accutane won't effect rolling scars or tighten pores. It shrinks the sebaceous glands so you'll produce less oil.

The accutane should prevent it getting any worse by eliminating the original cause. This gives the skin that vital spot and infection free time to heal. That hopefully includes your rolling scars. Just hope for it.

As for pores, yes. I found my pores shrunk. Especially when my course ended.
