Has anyone tried it? Is this the one Prague tried? I think it is prescritption only, which is odd since it has nothing earth shattering in it or anything that looks like an ingredient not readily available OTC. I need to ask Dr. B next time I go or maybe CV can ask him.

D, I tried this.

I went to a dermatologist before my current one and she prescribed this to me with isolaz laser so I stopped seeing her immediately. because I didn't want to do another acne laser again for the rest of my life.

At the time, I was not introduced to CeraVe, but I think this would be good for people with severely dry skin. It was good I think, but other than helping with skin barrier ( Protection ) I don't see it really being like anti-aging or reversing anything honestly.

EpiCream works - Well; but you have to start slow and do several test spots. I have areas that I can apply it to without and issues and others that flare with a hypersensitive/inflammatory response. It's hit or miss, but the science is there. Have a derm on tap for questions and frequent followups.
