more accutane questions!

Right now I have acne with a lot of marks, and some sligh scarring left over from previous breakouts. I'm most likely going to take accutane soon and I was wondering if accutane can clear marks/scars from previous acne. please respond!

ALL of my red marks went completely away. As for scars, well, I was luckt and don't have many. And I tend to scar white, so on my pale skin it doesn't shoe much. It won;t do much for deep scars like ice-pick scars and such, I don't think-but I'm not an expert in that field.

But red marks? hell yes-they GO!

Accutane works mainly to just clear and prevent acne. It doesn't help scars.

But it is EXTREMELY important not to pick your acne while on tane. The slow healing and dry skin from it will cause you to scar more easily. Regular moisturising will help prevent this a little.
