How long do I have to wait until I can do an IPL or any other laser treatment similar to IPL?

Laser treatment post Accutane
Due to the photosensitizing effects of Accutane (isotretinoin) and it's long half-life, waiting 6-12 months post Accutane treatment would be the safest option. Most recommendations are to wait a full 12 months post treatment.
To be sure, see two or more board-certified providers in your area for a complete evaluation to make sure you are a good candidate and that it is safe for you to have treatment with BBL after Accutane treatment.
Hope this helps.
