Hi!, I have been taking accutane for about 1 month for moderate (?) but persistent acne and acne is already improving.

The main problem, in my opinion, are the red marks and redness (which were already there before).

Am I right?  Will accutane give me a hand in this sense? Do you see any scars? How does the general situation seem to you? Thanks in advance and sorry for my English.

I don't see any scars, but just be sure you're not squeezing any pimples since that's how acne scars occur. The redness will go away in time hopefully, but you can always use products with niacinamide in them. You can try a laser like Vbeam, which helps with redness and can help with acne. Also use sunscreen like Cerave daily.

Accutane will do wonders for you man. Follow it religiously and take with fat. Red marks can be treated with topicals and IPL after accutane. Those will typically result without any treatment as well.

The redness will fade eventually, give it maybe a year. Avoid the sun as much as you can, or you can use sunscreen with SPF 30 or more. Tea tree oil could help, too.
