: Hey homie,I know where you're coming from.I bet your acne has cleared up and now you wanna get rid of all the leftover marks but laser resurfacing is not recommended until two years after accutane.Your skin will be very sensitive for a while and a laser too soon might backfire and cause you problems instead of benefits.Try and be patient . At least yor acne gone.When you do get laser surgery fill me on the results.As a matter of fact ,how much are you paying for the laser treatment?Where and who is performing the procedure?Get back at me.Good luck bro! I'm done accutane and would now like to correct my severe scars. I am 20 and am hoping to have this problem fixed before my youth is over. My doctor told me I should wait 6-9 months at the earliest before getting a CO2 laser surgery. A Dermatologic Surgeon told me accutane only stays in your system for a month and that she wants to do a laser on me in March. The reasons doctors want you to wit at all is that the sebacious glands help with the healing proces after a laser surgery. HELP Somebody!!!!! I want to get 2 laser surgery's as soon as possible and get this problem fixed to the fullest possible extent. Does anyone know anything about this subject?
