Can I Do Subcision After Accutane?

Recommended Posts

Have a few deep scars id like to try improve, ive been off accutane a month and a half, do you think its ok to get subcision after 3 months instead of 6? My understanding was that lasers and exfoliating should be avoided but subcision is just a needle in your skin? Thanks guys

Generally 6 months after finishing would be safe, though 1 year would be ideal. That said, it all depends on how aggressive one is as far as acne treatment. Mild things like chemical peels & microdermabrasion & fillers & subcision would be fine after 6 months, while ablative or resurfacing lasers (e.g. CO2, fractional lasers) are worth waiting for 1 year to be perfectly safe. Good luck! Benjamin Barankin, MD
