I had a couple of scars from picking quite early on in my Accutane course and 5 months on (I'm still on Roaccutane but a really low-dose) they've smoothed out and are barely noticeable...Just a hint of pink. I think all that Accutane does is delay healing process so marks and scars will just take longer to fade.

I honestly thought that it was the end of the world when I got those scars but now I barely even notice them. So hopefully once you stop the Accutane your skin would have a chance to heal...mine certainly did and I'm still on Accutane!

Give it a 6 months and then see if the scars are still there

Hope this helps!
