Sagging skin and scars
The scarring can be approached with CoolTouch laser and/or microneedling, with topical retinoids.
Sculptra Aesthetic for Sagging
For scarring, I've seen excellent results with non-ablative lasers, such as the ResurFX and CO2 systems I offer at my practice. Finally there is no contraindication to have taken Accutane like medications in the past and doing laser treatments. We usually wait at least 6-12 months after completing your medication course though.
Sagging Skin and Acne Scars
Sculptra would be a great treatment for you to give your skin a lift and help look natural. Your scars would best be treated with Fraxel Laser. The 1550 setting of the Fraxel will provide great results after a few treatments and little down time. Thermage could be utilized as well to give your skin tightening and help build up your body's own natural collagen. Please find a board certified dermatologist in your area to give you the best cosmetic results.
