    Default Faster healing on accutane - can i get hair removal?

    I'm healing alot faster on 10mg a day but ingrown hairs have always been a problem and lead to me picking them and they're generally a pain in the backside.

    In the past hair removal never had an adverse effect on me and swelling went away after a few hours.

    Now that i'm on accutane the hairs are coming back (thinner and finer) but some are still being problematic.

    I only really need to get my chin done, but i really do need it done so i'm going to risk it and have another alexandrite treatment. I know that's prob stupid but it has to be done. It's non-alative and targets my dark hair and leaves the skin fine.

    Any reason why i should absolutely not do this?

    Thanks

    Matt,

    Please dont chance it. It is not worth the permanent risk of scarring. Just really thnk about it before considering it.
