treating acne scars, even if you have active acne?

I dont think you can really do anything untill at least a year after finihing accutane, except maybe non-ablative lasers like n-lite and so on.

but u can do most scar treatments with active acne as far as I know, n-lite, subcision, isolagen etc should be fine. not sure about CO2 lasers and alike.

imho, if I were you I'd drop the accutane and have n-lite done to stop the active acne, then wait a year and have what evers the best scar treatment at the time done.

NLITE is a non ablative laser performed by some derms. Where are u located? Have you ever looked into any type of non ablative laser?

No, don't do any treatments on scars while on Accutane. While any plastic surgeon will gladly perform treatments (they care about money), dermatologists say to never treat scars while there is active acne. More scars and future problems are highly possible.
