Recommended Posts

Hello, Im 14 years old. Two months ago i visited my dermatologist and she pricribed me to accoutane. Im going to my dermatologist tomorrow to start accoutane. My acne isnt too bad. I have lots of spots but its not so worst.. of course i want clear skin..but im afraid that accoutane will make me more red marks and scars..

so i dont know what to do.. any advices would be very thankful.

The red marks will be redder to start off with because accutane increases circulation in the skin. After a while though, it will help fade the marks because of its effect of making the skin renew itself more often. You won't get worse scarring because of it, in fact on the contrary if accutane is switching off the bad acne your skin is suffering from then you will be prevented from further scarring.

Good luck!
