smoothbeam AND accutane

Recommended Posts

so i'm going to have some smoothbeam treatments for scarring. i have two set up - one for mid october, one for a month later. the woman @ my dr's office did two test spots and i see a teensy bit of improvement, plus they're only $100 so i'm quite excited . . .

but i am also considering going back on a LOW LOW dosage of accutane for my current acne. i've had hideous experiences w/ it in the past, but i was also on a very high dose....so while i'm wary, i am also sick of this acne.

so i have 2 questions.

1. can the smoothbeam and accutane overlap? wasn't really thinking about accutane when i talked to the dr. so i didn't ask and don't want to pay to go back just to ask one question.

2. who has had GOOD experiences w/ low dosages of accutane? side effects??

You need to ask your Doctor, but when in doubt avoid combining anything with Accutane that could be considered harsh in any way. The skin can be extremely fragile while on Accutane.
