Opinions very: The most conservative estimate is that you should wait about 6 months. There are docs that will do it much sooner and there are docs who will never treat you if you have ever used accutane. In my opinion, 6 months is more than enough.

6 months: Most doctors and laser companies recommend waiting about 6 months. Some doctors may treat sooner. Important to stay out of the sun and get adequate sun protection.
