Accutane & TCA

Recommended Posts

Hi. I'm in my fourth month of accutane treatment now, and though it's nice to finally have clear skin, it's made me see how scarred my cheeks really are. I can't wait to try TCA! Does anyone know how long I have to wait after accutane before I can try TCA? I know I read somewhere that some doctors think you can use it while on accutane, but since I'm almost done, I figured I could wait it out. Also, I'd like to see if it's just going to come right back after I'm off. Thanks, Shawna

I've been off accutane for about 2 months.. i've had a small outbreak and some small acne, but i'm really happy so far. No cysts anymore.

I wouldn't try to do anything like TCA til after 6 months. I get the impression TCA is a harsh procedure? I'm trying out some stuf for my raised (hypertrophic) scars, but it isn't much of a harsh procedure..
