I am on these medications but I am worried if I discontinue them, I'll break out right before the procedure. I have read that you should have your acne under control before getting Fraxel, but the only way I can keep it under control is by using the medicine routinely.
Should I Discontinue Benzaclin, Aczone and Retin-A Before Getting Fraxel Restore?

Retin-A and Fraxel
I would recommend stop using the Retin-A at least a few days before your procedure. Ideally, we like patients to stop using Retin-A's a week prior.
