Accutane and isotretinoin is an established therapy for cystic acne on the face and body. Often, isotretinoin oral dose tablets are combined with a retinoid cream such as Refissa or Retin-A; both of which can cause an intense retinoid reaction characterized by itching, burning, redness, and dryness of the skin.
Dermatologists usually prescribe a non-oily moisturizer to help with this retinoid reaction or else patients often defer to cessation of the isotretinoin and retinoids due to dry and sensitized skin.
As a safeguard against poor compliance, an ideal moisturizer for retinoid reaction and dryness with retinoids and isotretinoin is Elevase Moisture Booster, which is a ceramide moisturizer that reinforces the natural skin barrier function of the skin. Non-oily and safe to use on sensitive skin, Elevase is the perfect ceramide moisturizer if you are dealing with uncomfortable retinoid reaction.
