It sucks. You have to wait.

I know you can have microderm at 6 mos, but i think it's a year for invasive lasers.

You can have fillers sooner than six months according to most drs.

Do you have any literature on this? Any link?

Would like to show it to my doc cos she says 6 months is fine. Is the lux or restore considered invasive?

6 months is okay but to be even safer its a year...it also depends on how long and how much accutane you have taken..like me i took 60mg of accutane for 5 months and this is high doses compared to many so i will have to wait a year

Steve is right. It's the dr's discretion. Some dr's say 6 mos and others say one year, while others say minimum of 1 1/2 years. It's better to be safe than have problems though. I don't have links but I've read it all over the web and dr's have told me so. I don't know if luxe or restore is invasive. I don't know anything about either of them, but I'd do some research.
