Can I Continue with Laser Hair Removal While on Roaccutane?

I was prescribed Roaccutane. However, I am also coming up to my 4th session for laser hair removal on full body apart from my face. Is it ok to continue with my laser treatments while on the prescription? What are the main areas of the body (if any) that I should be careful while treating with laser if on Roaccutane? Thank you for your time.

Hair removal laser and Accutane

I personally would not recommend the laser light while you are on accutane. Instead, why not finish the LHR then begin the drug. Good luck to you!
