Fraxel treatment and Accutane

I just finished my 4th and final treatment of Fraxel. Does anyone know how long you should wait before going on Accutane once you finish your final Fraxel treatment? I know you should be off of it for a year before getting Fraxel, but I wasn't sure if the same goes for the reverse.

Also, my doctor said that it will take about 5-6 months to see the full results of the Fraxel treatments because it takes a while for collagen to "plump up". Does anyone know if Accutane slows down the process of collagen "plumping"?

Thanks in advance.

Good question because I plan on going on a small dosage of accutane after fraxel to sort of "seal the deal" in terms of my few pimples. I was thinking that you should do it 6 months after your last fraxel, that's when I'm planning to do it. Because I think accutane interferes with healthy skin regeneration so that's why you should wait 6 months for your full recovery from fraxel.
