Solodyn and photosensitivity


The manufacturers of Solodyn say there is no photosensitivity with this medication, so there is no reason you cannot take it and have a photofacial.

Solodyn and photofacial


Solodyn is minocycline which is rarely photosensitizing.  I would recommend to stop the solodyn for a few days before the photofacial just to be conservative, but its probably not a major issue.  Ask the practioner who is administering the photofacial their preference.
