Accutane and Healing

Recommended Posts

I have just come off roaccutane but i know it stays in your system for a few months. However i have just had a new piercing and i wondered if it takes much longer to heal on accutane? It was a question my piercer wasn't sure on

anyone got any info?

It also depends on if you get a cut, does it take longer to heal and/or not heal well. I know that happened to me, and I still do not heal as well. It all depends on if you do or not.

yo you're supposed to wait at least 6 months, many argue even longer. for both piercings and tattoos. I was going to get a tattoo but I apparently I have to wait at least 6 months after going off Accutane otherwise it totally gets fucked up AND fucks up your skin.

Piercers and tattoo artistis don't really know about Accutane but I spoke to a tattoo guy who really knows his shit when I was going to get it done and he's that he's bad experiences with one or two kids in the past who DIDN'T tell him they were on it and he said the skin is weird, it;s totally different, the thing gets all fucked up and it can cause a lot of damage.

I guess all you can do now is take very good care of it, be very high-maintenance with yourself LOL.

It is navel/nipple/eyebrow/lip/tongue/clit?

i got my nose (no comparison?) re-pierced while on accutane. it healed just fine. i ended up taking it out 2 months later, while still on accutane, and it healed up fine again.

Turner: Love the new photo!!!!

It's a good thing that you mentioned this because I had my ring out of my navel for two months and it kinda grew over. I was waiting to get back from Vegas before having it re-pierced but now that this topic has been brought up, I need to remember I was just on Accutane.

That being said, I have waxed in the past three months with no ill effects. (Oh no! I'm going to Accutane Hell!) evil.gif

eyebrow

belly button

ears at the top

hood

ears at the bottom
