microdermabrasion 3 months post-accutane?

Recommended Posts

My derm said to schedule an appt for DiamondTome (diamondtome.com) 3 months after finishing treatment. 6 months is the earliest that I've read.... so I'm gonna have to check up on this.

I will be off Accutane June 24. On one hand I'll be glad to know that I finished the 5 month course, but I'll be a little on edge (especially 1 month from now) knowing that I'm no longer clinging to the branches in a raging river.

I just don't want to have acne flare up again before having the DiamondTome procedures... I need to not worry.

I should probably see if I can get a prescription from the derm in case problems arise in a month or 2.

Oh my gosh...I would run to get a second opinion. I have had three different dermatologists in two states tell me to wait at least ONE YEAR before having any type of skin surgery, peel even waxing!!! It is best to err on the conservative side and wait.
