You can keep using differin (adapalene) on the chin as long as you're not have laser in that area. Differin (adapalene) and other similar products such as tretinoin can irritate the skin after laser treatment so if you get laser hair removal on the chin or face you would want to hold off on using it for a few days until your skin is no longer sensitive.

This should not be a problem for the bikini line or underarms.
