Elevase Moisture Booster with Retinoids

In our office, we prescribe retinoid products daily. We advise patients to mix the Retinoid creams with Elevase Moisture Booster which contains hydrating Opti-Ceramides.

Moisturizer Recommendations....

Anything you tolerate well is perfectly fine.  I personally like to recommend my patients to use Skin Medica's TNS Dermal Repair in the evening for extra moisturizing with their RetinA and just a light moisturizer like Skin Medica's Ultra Sheer in the morning before putting on their sunscreen.

 

Hope this helps.

Best Moisturizer to Use Daily when Using Retin-a

The best moisturizer is one that hydrates the skin, decreases inflammation, as well as protects from the sun. I recommend Pro therapy and SPF 30 every morning as well as Neocutis Biocream every night after washing the face followed by the Retin-A 30 minutes later.
