Home peels when on accutane??

I was wondering if it is okay to use a home peel cream called epidermex when on accutane as I am right now. Accutane has greatly cleared up my skin but now the scars my acne has left behind are completely visible. Anybody ever heard of epidermex or had any luck with it? Any other product suggestions for getting rid of acne scars at home would be appreciated. One of my friends has a laser and I was wondering if doing laser resurfacing might help my scars as well. Any suggestions would be appreciated,

You may NOT use anything harsh (such as peels) on your skin while using Accutane. You must wait at least six months to a year after taking Accutane before treating your scars. Why? The skin may be fragile while on Accutane and you risk further scarring/damage to your skin.
