Accutane and laser hair removal
That is a very low dosage of Accutane and for a very short amount of time. Accutane only has a half-life of about 24 hours, meaning the majority of the medication is out of your system in that timeframe. So, based on those two things, I would do the treatments on you at any point. Some offices will make you wait 6 months minimum after Accutane for any elective procedures, but in reality, you had about 140mg of Accutane total, so that's really nothing and its out of your system entirely posing no risks with laser hair removal.
