Ive been on accutane 3 months now and most of the cystic acne on my back has gone. There are only red marks left behind where the cysts have been. Ive got 3 months left on accutane which should clear all of the active cysts there. I had a appointment with my derm last week and I asked him would I be left with any scars on my back. He said yes I would and he called them pit scars and said there is nothin you can do really with them. And told me they will blend into the skin in time. Is this right? because I thought you could get rid of scars.

Yes, you can't really get rid of scars. It's funny because a lot of people assume you can (I used to), but, it is not true. The scars will not blend in with the surrounding skin either. There is 1 choice which I feel can yield good results based on people's experiences: Dermabrasion performed by a very prominent doctor in New Orleans; I cannot say anymore as this board has very stringent rules in regards to this.
