Does a Second Course of Accutane Help with Old Acne Scars?

About a year ago had accutane because of my acne and I left me with a few scars. A year has passed and now my scars are just a few and not very deep, but my acne is back and I'm having accutane again. I don't think I'll get new scars, but now that my acne is back and I am having acutane again, would another course of this medication help me with what it's left from the scars that I have now? or i'll have to wait until my treatment ends.

Accutane does not help scars

Accutane will not remove old acne scars but is very effective for recurrent nodulocystic serve acne.
