Is it safe to get injectable treatments like Rejuran, Botox and dermal fillers while on Accutane (Isotretinoin)?

Hi,


As long as your active acne is well controlled, injectables are permissible and safe to administer while on isotretinoin. However, if active acne inflammation is still present, injectables may run the risk of aggravating the acne infection and inflammation, hence should best be avoided.

In general however, it may be prudent to focus first on completing the entire isotretinoin treatment course before commencing on additional invasive aesthetic treatments. 

Hope this helps!

Hi there,

It depends on the extent and severity of your active acne in those areas that you are considering injectables.  It is generally safe to proceed with the abovementioned procedures as long as the areas that are to be treated are not inflamed / currently have active acne.

 If those areas are still fraught with active acne, then it is best to get it under control first as Dr Chin has mentioned.

Hope that helps.

All the best!
