You should not have a chemical peel or laser until a minimum of six months after your Accutane regimen is completed, particularly because you are on a very high dosage of 120mg daily. After you have finished your regimen and it's been six months, consult with your dermatologist about how to deal with the acne scarring. You really can't do anything until then.
