    cure for acne scars?

    Anyone have any suggestions for acne scars? I managed to pick up some Accutane. I'm running it at a low dose, and the acne itself has nearly cleared, but I'm still left with scars. Most of them are red, and a few of them have a purple-ish color to them. Almost all of them are on my back, so it would be very hard to treat them with a cream of some kind (I'm single and live alone btw).

    Is there an oral I can try?

    Hmm...never thought about that. I'm not sure if you're being serious or sarcastic, so I have to ask, will that really work? Are there any other remedies for this? I would assume this isn't covered by insurance since it's more of a cosmetic ailment, so how much, roughly, would something like this cost?

    careful with the accutane it can mess with you even years later, I would avoid it IMO.

    as for scars, if they are fresh you will need to wait some years for them to go from pink/purple to mostly normal color before messing with them. IMO

    More of this ^^^^^ Hi, I'm having most of my tattoo's removed by laser with the Medlite C3 laser but this also can help remove acne scares. Lots of resources out there plus newer technology and better results time/money.

    I would guess your best option too. If you could apply a chemical peel (TCA) it can lighten
    the scarring some.
