Antibiotics And Scar Treatments

Recommended Posts

I know it is advised to not have any type of lasers done on teh face while and 6 months after Accutane? Are there any warnings when taking antibiotics for acne? I know some people are given antibiotics right before or after treatments to reduce chance of breakout but, what if you have been on them for a while?

if you went on accutane there is no point in taking antibiotics because you will not break out regardless.

You can go on anti-biotics for the week before and the week you are recovering from the laser because almost everyone breaks out from the Vaseline that you need to put on when recovering.

I have never been on Accutane. I was just wondering if one can be on antibiotics when getting something like fraxel repair done. IE. he/she is still breaking out with a few pimples once in a while.
