Last month of Tane: Questions

I saw my derm today and he says my skin has cleared extremely well and he will not have me on tane for the 6 to 8 month period as he originally thought. By the time I am through which will be sometime next month my total cumulative dose will be 11000 mgs. and I weigh 56 kgs. So here's my concern, I have a huge cyst which has been on my face for the past 2 weeks and he drained it today and I still have clogged pores and some tiny black heads and somewhat blotchy complexion. When I was on accutane previously, all of my acne went away and my face looked so clear and dewy and I'm not having that same effect this time around. I asked my derm if I could stay on it longer, but he refused. He told me instead he can do this Fraxel laser therapy to even out the blotchiness and to remove my old acne scars.

In the meanwhile, I'm worried the acne will come back. SHould I really be worried? This is my third time on accutane. :(
