Due to the inhibition of the sebaceous glands from Accutane, the skin may not heal normally. The standard of care is to wait 1 year after last Accutane dose for peels, lasers, etc.
The skin is much more likely to scar for the first 12-24 months after Accutane, so hold off on any elective procedures that can potentially scar until it is safe.
