GentleLase tx with meds


#1

Hello,

I understand that most people are required to be off of accutane for at least 3-6 months prior to laser hair removal. However, I wanted to know if a very small maintenance dose of 10mg were taken twice a week, would that still create major problems with photosensitivity? I’m getting the hair on the front of my neck treated with the Gentlelase laser and was given a script for accutane prior to my first tx. I’ve been on accutane before (a year ago) and never experienced any sensitivity with the sun. Any advise would be much appreciated.

Thanks - Anthony
