Question: Do I need to stop using my prescription topical acne medication before undergoing a dermabrasion procedure?

Answer: It really depends on which prescription topical acne medication you are using and whether you are undergoing a microdermabrasion or true dermabrasion.  I would discuss this with your physician as to whether or not you need to stop any sort of topical medications.
