How soon after low dose accutane (10mg a week) can I go for Syringoma removal?

Age: 40 - 49
Skin, Hair & Nails Aesthetic Medicine
DOCTOR’S ANSWER (1)

Hello there!

 

Thank you for your question and interest in this topic. Syringomas may be removed in a variety of methods but in general I believe you are referring to minimally-invasive skin procedures using equipment or machines such as lasers/minor surgical procedures. 

You may be pleased to know that you may go ahead for syringoma removal even while on low dose accutane (isotretinoin).

The current evidence supports that skin procedures including superficial chemical peels, laser hair removal, minor cutaneous surgery, manual dermabrasion, and fractional ablative and fractional nonablative laser procedures can be performed safely on patients who have recently been or are currently being treated with isotretinoin, according to new recommendations from a consensus panel. These recommendations were published online in JAMA Dermatology. (JAMA Dermatol. 2017. doi: 10.1001/jamadermatol.2017.2077). I sotretinoin was not found to be associated with delayed wound healing or keloid formation in these studies. 

Hope this helps!

 

Regards,

Dr. Joanna Chan
