Chemical peels and acne scars
Acne Scars and Chemical Peels
If your acne was severe enough to have Accutane then you probably have significant scars that need to be addressed. There are specific rules about lasers and chemical peels after Accutane and I would discourage you from doing at home peels. Please find a board certified dermatologist for the best cosmetic result.

First if it has been less than a year since you stopped your Accutane-do not peel your skin.
Now another reality check. These peels and chemical resurfacing treatments will not "get rid" the acne scars. Many of those websites touting the improvement on skin smoothing really are just showing radically different lighting in the before and after pictures.
Congratulations for taking control of the acne by being treated with Isotretinoin. I strongly recommend that you continue to work with a board certified dermatologist. Follow professional advice and steer clear of treatments that promise you the stars, the moon, and the sky.
