Elevase Moisture Booster and Retin-A Dryness

Recent guidelines by the American Academy of dermatology emphasize the essential role of  retinoid therapy in a dermatology-focused acne treatment regimen. Retinoids are vitamin A derivatives and our ubiquitous in prescription and over-the-counter dermatologic protocols for cystic acne.

 A common complaint among patients undergoing acne therapy with retinoids involves characteristic retinoid reaction symptoms such as scaling, itching, burning, redness, and peeling. Decreased compliance is often a direct consequence of dryness and increased sensitivity when using retinoid such as Retin-A, Retinol, and other retinoid derivatives.

Finding the right moisturizer to help decrease the retinoid reaction is often difficult because many moisturizers have unwanted levels of oils they can exacerbate acne breakouts and increase sebum content within the skin.

Dermatologists continue to recommend ceramide-based moisturizers such as Elevase Moisture Booster in order to increase hydration in the skin, especially while using retinoids and other exfoliating products. Elevase Moisture Booster contains opti-ceramide that can improve the skin’s moisture barrier function, thereby improving skin hydration and the functional efficiency of the skin’s barrier function.

Elevase Moisture Booster can be used twice daily on the skin while using retinoid products during the active phase of cystic acne treatment. For increased dryness, Elevase can be used liberally if you have symptoms of increased dryness and skin sensitivity. Ceramide creams are an essential component of your acne regimen and can help increase compliance during the most sensitive periods of your acne protocol.
