post-accutane..no lasers, etc for 6 mnths...

Recommended Posts

Hi.

I was wondering about the no losers, dermabrasion etc for 6 months after accutane. does this apply to peels, like 20% salicylic acid, or even say, TCA?

Like say, one month after your course is done?

Thanks!

Arya

6 months is not long enough. I hear to be really safe you should wait 2 years. Trust me, I want to peel my face off. I finished tane 1 month ago. But, I, like all of us, have no choice. We have to be very careful.

I just finished Accutane about 3 months ago and I was told to wait at least 6 months before I did any dermabrasion. Well, I'm hard-headed and I do at-home microdermabrasion. Is that supposed to be harmful as well? I've only seen scar-reduction, not the other way around.
