Risk for burn : Increased risk for burn. Best to wait until Accutane treatment is complete before attempting laser treatment.

No: The use of any type of ablative or non-ablative laser while on accutaine is not a good choice. The Accutane puts you at risk for easier burning with poor wound-healing and pigmentation changes with laser treatment of any kind.
