Fraxel is a great procedure but the company advises you to stop Accutane one year before the laser. If you are taking mega-doses of Vitamin A I would advise you to stop that as well before the procedure. A normal multivitamin or the daily recommended dosage of Vitamin A is not a problem with Fraxel. For the best cosmetic results please consult a board certified dermatologist with a great deal of experience with Fraxel.
No. Accutane is a vitamin A derivative that requires close management by your physician. Over the counter vitamin A supplements taken according to recommended dosages will not interfere with or complicate the Fraxel procedure. If you are taking supplements in dosages higher than recommended, it would be wise to consult your physician.
Vitamin A supplement sae with fraxel and other laser procedures
Your Vitamin A supplement does not act like Accutane and you can continue your supplement even while having laser treatments including fraxel.
Vitamin A, Accutane, and Fraxel
Vitamin A is not considered a dangerous supplement before Fraxel. Accutane is. I would wait at least 6 months after completion of Accutane before Fraxel.
No need to worry-no vitamin A supplement will carry the same concerns as accutane as far as wound healing after laser procedures is concerned. Good Luck.
