Dry Skin Relief with Accutane: Elevase Moisture Booster

If over-the-counter acne medications haven't been successful in treating your acne, your dermatologist or skin specialist may have talked to you about taking Accutane; or isotretinoin tablets. For many, Accutane is a miracle-drug, able to reduce pore activity and functionality from the inside. Cystic acne can be reduced to occasional hormonal flare-ups with Accutane use.

But with everything good in the world, there are some negative side-effects to taking Accutane. This prescription medication can cause flare-ups in your liver enzymes and can even cause birth defects in an unborn fetus. That's why Accutane use is strictly controlled in the United States, despite being one of the most common acne medications prescribed by dermatologists.

A more common side effect with Accutane is dry skin. We asked skin specialist Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian about dry skin relief with Accutane. "Elevase Moisture Booster contains essential opti-ceramides that can restore the natural moisture barrier function of the skin; making it an ideal moisturizer for teenagers and adults on Accutane therapy."

Elevase Moisture Booster is a ceramide moisturizer packaged in a 60 gm tube that can be used throughout the day to relieve dryness from acne therapy.
