Can I Continue Taking My Acne Medication While Receiving A SkinMedica Chemical Peel?
Oral antibiotics used for the treatment of acne should be continued during the course of the peeling. The use of topical prescription medications, such as Retin-A, Tazorac, Differin, benzoyl peroxide, etc. should be postponed until the peel process is complete or skin sensitivity resolves. Over the counter acne remedies that are drying to the skin should also be discontinued until the peel process is complete or sensitivity resolves.
