Accutane is not covered by my insurance so I'd like to know if there's a generic version of Accutane. Even if it's only half the price, it will make a big difference.

I know Fraxel laser clears acne scars, but does it solve acne breakouts too? I don't have a severe case of acne, but it's constant and it drives me crazy because I'm an adult. I'm not supposed to have acne at my age.
