Hi karam! I don't have any personal experience regarding your question, but I know that mole removal has a high chance of scarring, as is. Although, depending on mole size and shape, scarring can be very minimal.

I would highly recommend waiting AT LEAST one year, unless the mole needs to be removed for medical reasons. That will give your skin a chance to build back up after Accutane- making it more resistant to scarring.

Also, definitely consult your dermatologist. He/she would know best!

Good luck!
