I never had scars while I've had acne. Now in my 4th month of Accutane, I have visible ones.

I'm 18 years, and they seem to more present because of Accutane. Based on experiences, can I expect my face to heal up some or is this what I should except? Thanks.

Is it possible that you just didn't notice the scars for the acne? Sometimes the inflamation of the acne can puff up the skin obscuring the scars.

You do have your age on your side for natural healing but you should also seek treatment asap when you're not on Accutane so that your treatments can also benifit from your age. The younger you are the better you heal. But the scars I had at 18 scarred permanently so I think the cut off is much younger for your body to totally reverse scars. Just my opinion. Good luck.
