Laser treatments and Accutane
I assume you mean you take 20mg of the medication, and you take one pill every two weeks, as part of a maintenance regimen? You will need to consult the office treating you and discuss their protocols. Some offices demand patients be entirely off Accutane for a minimum of 6 months before doing any type of laser treatment. You will need to follow your office's protocols, so follow up with them.
