In brief: Accutane doesn't

always clear your acne.
If hormones are a big cause of your acne then birth control pills or spironolactone works better. I would not do laser until your acne is under good control. see dermatologist

Consider taking all dairy out of your diet for at least 3 weeks, this may help.

In brief: May need 2nd course

You may benefit from a second course of Accutane to control the problem.
