Dermatology: Acne scars can take from 6 months to a year after the acne itself resolves. If the accutane has resolved your acne, your body can begin to heal. Make sure to use a good moisturizer that contains SPF 30 so that the sun cannot damage your healing scars. Niacinamide is good as is vitamin C gel and Hyaluronic acid which recruits fluids to the superficial skin. Talk to your Derm Dr.
