Scarring and Accutane

Scarring will continue to improve after you complete your Accutane regimen so we don't often have people treat them for about 3 months or more after completing Accutane, so we can see how the body will respond on its own. Scarring looks worse due to heat, sun, etc. so make sure you use a good moisturizer, stay out of the heat, and use daily sunscreen. There are many ways to treat acne scarring - lasers, light treatments, fillers - but none of that should be done until you are through your regimen.
