I am using Epidermx right now for some moderate acne, dark red marks, and a couple rolling scars. I was such a skeptic at first b/c of all the hype it has received, but I decided to give it a try anyway. Well, this the end of my first week of using it and my dark red (almost purple!!!!) marks have faded DRAMATICALLY. Redness and cysts has reduced as well. I am so impressed! It really lives up to what everyone says about it. Do a search for it on this board, you can gather more info. With the Epidermx, I am also using Silkia Camellia Oil. It has AHA and retinol like qualities and is also great for scarring.

You could probably use the Camellia Oil while on Accutane, but I would hold off on the Epidermx until you are done with Accutane, and even then I would probably give it a few months since it is microdermabrasion and like you said, your skin will be quite sensitive for a while after going off Accutane.

Also, take plenty of Vitamin E. I am currently taking anywhere from 800 mg to 1000 mg daily to help reduce scars and to help my skin heal quickly. Also I am taking 3,000 mg Fish Oil which also is great for the skin.

Hope this helps! :)
