Isotretinoin plus microneedling?

Isotretinoin and microneedling
I would not recommend microneedling while on accutane. Your skin is much more sensitive, and healing is impaired. You are more likely to have bad side effects from a resurfacing procedure while on accutane. Wait until you are done, the current recommendation is about 6 months after finishing.
Accutane and other cosmetic procedures
Once you start Isotretinoin, it is best that you completely refrain from doing any other procedures such as lasers, microneedling, etc. At our clinic, we clearly state on our consent forms not to do procedures if on Isotretinoin.
