Accutane, PDT Lasers and Scarring.

I have been on Accutane for 3 months for severe cystic acne. The acne is under control but it seems the scarring is worse. Prior to Accutane, my acne was controlled by PDT lasers. I understand that lasers can cause more scarring AFTER Accutane, but wondered if it could cause more scarring BEFORE Accutane. I had a series of 6 treatments over a period of 2 years. My last one was 1 month before Accutane. Could this be the cause?
