Acne is a very common issue with an estimated 80% of people aged between 11 and 30 suffering with an outbreak of it as some point. It can be highly distressing and can affect the confidence of the sufferer as well as being extremely painful in some cases.
The powerful double action of Duac’s active ingredients can help you to overcome your acne struggles, clearing the infection from within and bringing back your natural skin tone and texture.
Duac contains two powerful active ingredients called clindamycin phosphate and benzoyl peroxide. Together they are designed to effectively treat the bacterial infection by breaking down the comedones, the black and white heads, which will in turn unblock the glands.
The two ingredients, when working together, are known to be highly effective in dealing with acne with 50% of blemishes clearing up in as little two weeks in some cases where Duac is applied. It has also been shown to remove nearly double the number of blemishes than it’s closest acne-fighting competitor, and 10% more by the end of the first month of use.
Duac Once Daily can be purchased online only once it has been prescribed. To get a prescription you must fill in a short medical questionnaire which allows our health experts to assess whether this treatment will be beneficial for your situation. If not you will be advised as to which treatment may be preferable based on a number of factors including information such as your current health and any other medications you are taking or using.
Once you have received your prescription you can purchase Duac online and it will be sent to you by next day delivery where possible.
Duac is a popular choice because it only needs to be applied once a day making it an easy treatment to use. It is also preferable for anyone who does not wish to take tablets as the skin is still getting the benefit of an antibiotic without the need to swallow a pill.
Another reason for its popularity is that together, the ingredients can remove nearly all acne bacteria on the skin, clearing it up and easing the discomfort of outbreaks in a matter of weeks. In fact, clindamycin, the antibiotic contained in Duac, is the number one antibiotic used for clearing up acne in the UK. One major reason for this is that the other antibiotic sometimes prescribed for acne can stain teeth whereas Clindamycin does not.
Duac is a gel which contains two active ingredients; an antibiotic designed to kill the bacteria causing the acne called clindamycin and an acne-fighting antiseptic called benzoyl peroxide.
Duac is designed to be used once a day, in the evening.
It is important to wash the skin with a mild cleanser before applying the gel to ensure the skin is as clean as possible.
The treatment must be applied in a thin layer to all affected areas of the skin rather than only on specific spots.
It is important to apply sparingly. If the gel is difficult to rub in you have used too much.
Clindamycin is widely used to fight many bacteria based infections including Propioni bacterium acnes, the bacteria which feeds on the sebum produced within the skin’s sebaceous glands. This bacteria produce fatty acids and waste products which begin to irritate the glands causing them to become inflamed and erupt into acne-like spots. The application of clindamycin controls the number of bacteria able to survive on the skin, thus stopping the irritation and inflammation and allowing the skin to heal.
The medication fighting alongside the antibiotic in Duac is benzoyl peroxide which is a keratolytic, a medicine designed to break down the protein forming part of the structure of the skin known as keratin. The application of this antiseptic breaks down skin cells causing them to shed and break down the comedones, also known as blackheads and whiteheads, with it. This then clears the sebaceous glands which means fewer comedones can be formed.
Duac gets to work in as little 48 hours with the clindamycin killing bacteria which causes the acne, and then, any bacteria left behind is then cleared up by the antibacterial benzoyl peroxide.
Duac is known to get to work within 48 hours and results can be seen from as little as two weeks. It is important to persevere with the treatment but to discontinue use after 12 weeks to give the skin a break.
To avoid your acne coming back after you stop using the treatment, you may be advised to use a 2% to 4% benzoyl peroxide product for a minimum of a week after your stop Duac.
Different people will react in different ways when using a product such as Duac but the most common side effects of the gel can include:
If you experience any major side effects including severe redness, burning or stinging, or excessive peeling then stop the treatment and consult with your Click Pharmacy doctor or GP.
In some rare cases, the antibiotic can get into the body’s digestive system where it will do its job of killing all bacteria there aside from Clostridium difficile which can trigger diarrhoea. If you experience diarrhoea, stop using the treatment and book an appointment with your doctor that day to discuss your next steps. You can book a free and confidential online appointment with the doctors at Click Pharmacy at any time.
Duac’s ingredients can bleach clothing and towels so be aware of what you put on when using it and when drying your face.
