roaccutane - scarring?

HI Pharm

Is it true roaccutane can help with scarring? (black skin in this instance) If so how does this happen? I thought it only helps with the actual lesions. What is the action which would help with scars, very old ones too. Could u clarify thanks.

Hi Lacey

Roaccutane and its generics are effective in treating scarring acne, but are not effective on pre-existing scars and should ideally be started before scarring has begun.
