Minocycline and Dermabrasion

Recommended Posts

I am in my 2nd month on Minocycline... and I just wanted to know if I could get a dermabrasion while on Minocycline?? I've read that people who are on Accutane shouldn't get dermabrasions while on Accutane or 6 months after, since their skin will be very thin... So, I was wondering if the same goes for Mino??

I haven't talked to my derm. about this yet, because I won't be seeing him until my next appt. which is not until Jan. 2005.. so any comments I can get here, I would greatly appreciate it. smile.gif

Talk to the people in the Scar/Hyperpigmentation Forum. They are much more informed and have had dermabrasion, laser surgery and all different kinds of procedures to remove scars. Since the majority of them were in the same place us pill-heads are today, they will probably better understand the effects of taking an oral antibiotic and having dermabrasion performed at the same time. Good luck.
