Do you pluck your eyebrows while on Accutane?

Recommended Posts

I know it's a random question, but I read that doing Brazilian waxes and dermabrasion and such while on Accutane could lead to scarring..does the same principle apply to plucking your eyebrows with regular tweezers?

Plucking is okay, since you'll be grabbing individual hairs, not your skin. The reason it's not a good idea to wax while on Accutane is because the wax attaches to the skin as well as the hairs, and can rip both off when it's removed.

Yeah, I pluck them all the time. Just don't pinch your skin because I ended up ripping out a chunk of skin and the scab stayed there for two weeks.
