Accutan and tattoo

Recommended Posts

Anybody have experience with that!?

I put my tattoo before 5 days.

But i have to start with acutane therapy...should i wait for a week or more?!

Maybe it is not important because acutane is on start and do not work with "full power", what do you think?!

I will wait for two weeks and will start with therapy.

I think it is ok...

I need to put on tatoo cream 3-4 times a day for first two weeks.

I will continue with cream after first two weeks because acutan.

You should wait at least six months afterwards before having anything like that done. That includes tatoos, piercings, laser treatments, elective surgeries (plastic surgeries should wait a year), dermabrasion, etc. Anything where you need to heal up properly.
