Because waxing on Accutane is unsafe, are other hair-removal methods, like Nair or Veet, also unsafe to use while undergoing a round of Accutane?
Is It Safe to Use Nair on the Face While Taking Accutane?

Use of depilatory on the face while on Accutane
I would avoid use of all irritating products on the face during treatment with Accutane. Patients are very susceptible to dryness and irritation, and the epidermis is sensitive to injury--avoid waxing as you so noted above. Use of astringents, harsh soaps, alcohol, as well as depilatories on the face should be avoided during treatment. Be sure to use plenty of moisturizers.
