acne scars and roaccutane

Scar treatments such as Laser Resurfacing, Fractional laser and chemical peels are contraindicated in patients on Roaccutane/ Oratane. This is due to the fact that your skin will take a longer time to heal following these treatments. There is also a risk of scarring following more aggressive treatments as above.

In a group of patients who are on low dose Roaccutane, a new form of acne treatment called RF or RadioFrequency can be used in conjunction with this drug. RF does not involve laser or chemicals, but uses radiowave energy to remodel scars. Your Dermatologist will inform you regarding the suitability of this program.
