What kind of scars do I have and what's the best way to get rid of them? I'm currently on 4th month of Accutane. 

Thank you!

The atrophic scars look like extremely shallow boxcars and some very subtle rolling scars. You mainly have PIE (post inflammatory erythema), which should resolve over time. You can use topicals like Niacinamide to help. V-beam laser would get you faster results for PIE.

You are lucky because the accutane cleared up your acne fast and now you're left with the mildest of scars. You don't need anything too drastic. Any lasers in the market that get rid of redness and stimulates collagen growth will do.

There have been studies that have shown that fresh scars can be remodeled / guided to heal better.  There might be a case for devices like infini and topical treatments like Retin-A and tazorac, all which can potentially help the scars from becoming more severe.
