My doctor will be prescribing one or two pills a week. On such a low dosage, will it be okay to wax?

I had to stop shaving to let my skin clear up but I would like to start waxing every two weeks or so. I go to the beach alot and also have special events coming up. I start accutane on Dec 7th. BTW, the Cetaphil anti-bacterial soap, 2.5% benzoyl peroxide, and the multivitamins have been working well. But I'm hoping accutane will get rid of the cysts and acne scars faster.

OUCH!

The skin becomes that sensitive while on accutane?

I'm getting underarms, bikini, and legs waxed.

I would just tweeze anything else.
