Non-ablative Fractional Laser After Accutane?
Hi, I am 24 years old and finally free of acne thanks to Accutane, but I have some moderate rolling and box-scars on my cheeks. When I asked about the scars, my dermatologist said that I could actually go for non-ablative fractional laser 2 months later if my skin was producing enough oil again. He says the post-Accutane risks are only for ablative procedures. My doctor has decades of laser experience, but I'm wondering if he is correct. Should I just leave my skin alone after Accutane?
