In brief: Six months is enough

It is typically safe to get a chemical peel or microdermabrasion six months or more after you have finished a course of Accutane.
It is safest to consult with cosmetic surgeon or dermatologist, as your skin type and amount of correction you need, play a role in the best treatment for you.

Typically it is recommended to wait 12 months after completing accutane before proceeding with any type of elective skin therapy such as dermabrasion
