Chemical peel 6 weeks after finishing Accutane

Hey all,

It's been approx 6 weeks since I've been off Accutane. I'm booked in for a chemical peel tomorrow. Should I risk it? It was my dermatologist who scheduled it.

If it's relevant, during my course I never experienced excessive dry skin on my face. It was never red or itchy and I only had to moisturise after cleansing. My oilyness has returned now. It's been gradual and it isn't as bad as what it used to be yet, but it's getting there *MASSIVE SIGH*

Anyway, if anyone else has had a similiar experience it would be helpful.

Oh and P.S. When is it safe to start waxing again? Shaving is just.. no.

Thanks!

(:

Glycolic acid. I told the woman beforehand and I think she extra diluted it or something because it didn't sting at all. After 30 secs it started to sting so she removed it immediately, and so far so good. (:
