Exfoliate while on Accutane?

Just wanted to see if anyone exfoliated whilst on Accutane? Thought if I used a gentle one it may shift the flakes a bit better? Thanks!

Don't do it more than once every 2 weeks or so, simply because your skin can't handle the microabrasions. Your skin is very thin and very sensitive.

I've been doing it more often lately. My skin is flaky so it helps to resurface it. I do it VERY gently though so it won't cause any abrasions.
