Is it safe to do Microdermabrasion on a client that is on acutane?
The answer is yes. It just has to be done gently with the least pressure. Very carefully. 

The combination of Microdermabrasion and Retin-A can go work well together. We use a crystal-free diamond tipped microdermabrader in our office. Your skin with Retin-A may be more sensitive and to help avoid scabbing and deeper injury we recommend that patients stop Retin-A / Tretinoin for 3-5 days before their microdermabrasion treatment. Patients can then resume Tretinoin the next day after microdermabrasion. Each patient is different and I tailor my recommendations accordingly.  

This revolutionary skin restoration and process is commonly referred to as "the lunch time facial" because the procedure takes only minutes to perform and most people can return to work immediately. This action causes little or no discomfort while it gently removes the outer layer of the skin. By repeating this process over the course of several weeks or months, younger, softer, more radiant skin moves to the surface.   Together, you will determine the number and regularity of treatments best for you. You'll need to avoid Alpha-Hydroxy Acid, Glycolic Acid products and skin exfoliation scrubs for 72 hours both before and after a treatment. No anesthetic is required. You'll need to avoid direct sun exposure for few days after a treatment. Eye make-up, lipstick etc. may be applied immediately after a treatment. Because this procedure is non-invasive and non-surgical, you may return to your normal activities immediately. 
For aging skin and all skin types it is recommended that one begin with 5 microdermabrasion treatments (once every two weeks for 5 weeks total), and continue with microdermabrasion treatments once every 3 to 4 weeks.  For acne it is good to have Microdermabrasion done once a week to 2-3 weeks apart to receive results. Realistic expectations: The vast majority of our patients are extremely happy with their appearance after Microdermabrasion, it really works!

Traditional MICRODERMABRASION treatments use tiny crytals-rather than diamonds- to remove the outer layer of the skin. While these treatments were undeniably effective, they also had drawbacks. For one, the crystals were highly abrasive and created inflammation and heat on the skin. If patients already suffered from inflammation, for exampledue to Rosacea or Acne, this approach could make their condition worse.  In addition, the crystal based method resulted in a bit of of downtime, which isn't ideal for busy men and women who have lives, careers and families to get back to. All Microdermabrasion machines that use crystal do not use organic crystals. Microdermabrasion with crystal irritates the skin,can cause skin rashes causing many problems-not to mention the health risks with breathing in crystal.
 This is why we use Diamond Peel. The most organic healthiest Machine to use for skin.

The newest microdermabrasion treatments use diamonds to abrade the skin instead. They are superior to the crystal-based method in a number of ways:
Enhanced results:Microdermabrasion with diamonds is gentle yet still delivers enhanced results, polishing the skin and clearing away dead cells.
Customizable: The courseness of the diamonds can be adjusted to offer a gentle or more aggressive treatment, depending on your sensitivity and skin condition.
Gentle approach: Unlike microdermabrasion with crystals, the diamond tipped wand doesn't cause heat or inflammation on the skin.
No downtime: There's no downtime with the Diamond Tip wand, with most patients only reporting minor redness shortly after their treatment.
