Thank you for your question Stu1685. Accutane (isotretinoin) is a medication that is used for acne resistant to other forms of treatment. It was originally used as a chemotherapy medication. Accutane has a number of side effects, one of which is delayed healing of the skin. For this reason I recommend avoiding laser treatments for six to twelve months after completing a course of Accutane as there is the possibility of scarring. Please consult with your doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!
