Hey Everyone. I've been off accutane for about four months now and I just had a check up appointment. My skin is perfectly clear but I am left with red marks and some indentation. She put me on retin-A now for my scarring and said it will get better over 2-4 years. Has anyone been on retin-A for scarring? how has it worked for you?

It really depends. I only have one tiny indented scars...and I mean TINY and retina helped bring it up and level it off. However it doesn't do anything for dark spots. I suggest you try Hydroquonine. That helped IMMENSLY with my red marks...but you have to use it 2 months to really see any difference.

I'm using Tazorac post-'tane, and so far it seems to be working quite well on my red marks and scarring. I've only been on it for a little over a month, but I can see a difference already.

Doesn't hurt to try it, not to mention the Retin-A will probably keep your pores clear and help to maintain your results from 'tane.

Good luck, and keep us posted!
