Finacea Gel is thus used to treat mild to moderate cases of rosacea which is characterized by reddish flare-ups on the nose and cheeks. The active ingredient in Finacea Gel is azelaic acid. Each gram of the gel contains 0.15gm of this chemical substance. As a naturally-occurring acid, azelaic acid is crucial for the faster renewal of the skin. In turn, the appearance of pimples and blackheads is curtailed. The compound also eliminates bacteria that produce pimples and rosacea.
There are many known ways of treating rosacea eruptions on the face. Some sources suggest applying a green tea formulation on the affected areas. Others say that rubbing aloe vera gel on rosacea sites may work as well. Honey moisturizes the skin, too, thus massaging and letting it dry on flared-up areas may work. The list goes on and on. However, if you’re looking for a faster and more reliable way of treating rosacea, you can resort to medicating with Finacea Gel.
How effective is Finacea Gel?
Finacea Gel is an effective product for treating mild to moderate rosacea. In a study published on a credible online journal Biblioteca Cochrane, it was ascertained that azelaic acid, the active ingredient in Finacea Gel has been a known treatment for acne for over several decades now. Azelaic 20% cream was also found to reduce a significant amount of non-inflammatory as well as inflammatory lesions. The effects of this medication are comparable to that of other approved standard treatments such as tretinoin, erythromycin and benzoil peroxide. Treatment for acne using azelaic acid is better tolerated because of its fewer side effects.
Finacea Gel is a licensed medicine that is manufactured by Bayer in the UK. It is obtained by prescription. You can feel at ease to ask for an online prescription and book an appointment with a health expert at Click Pharmacy to discuss how to best use this product. This medication is available in 30g tubes.
What dose should I choose?
Finacea Gel is sold in online and local pharmacies in 30g tubes. This product is typically applied on affected areas on the face twice a day. In the morning and before bedtime are the ideal times for using this medication. Symptoms may improve after 4 weeks or longer. If your skin condition persists after this time duration, continue using the gel. Consult your doctor if there are no signs of improvement after 12 weeks of treating your rosacea with the medicine.
How should I apply Finacea Gel?
Use this product according to the directions of your doctor. Do not apply less or more of it, or for a longer time period than recommended.
Wash and dry your hands thoroughly before and after handling the gel.
Clean the acne rosacea- infected areas on your face using a soap-free cleansing lotion or a mild facial soap. Pat your face dry using a clean and soft towel.
This medication is typically applied 2 times a day- ideally in the morning and at night before sleeping. Check your doctor’s instructions and stick to it diligently.
Do not cover the treated areas of your face. Doing so will cause excessive absorption of the gel by your body, and this can be risky.
Symptoms may improve after 4 weeks of using the product. If they persist after this period, keep on applying the gel. Consult your doctor at the soonest time if your skin condition does not improve or if it persists or worsens after 12 weeks.
The doctor may advise you to reduce using the gel to once a day only if you experience severe skin dryness, irritation or burning.
Check the expiration date on the product package. Refrain from using if it has lapsed.
Store this medicine at room temperature and away from heat or moisture.
If you missed a dose, apply one as soon as you remember, or proceed on your next application time. Do not apply two doses of the gel to make up for that you missed.
How does Finacea Gel work?
Azelaic acid, the active ingredient in Finacea Gel, is categorized as a dicarboxylic acid. This substance treats rosacea by reducing the symptoms it produces, namely redness and swelling of the skin. Acne is alleviated by azelaic acid because it destroys the bacteria that infect the pores. It also reduces the production of keratin which is a natural substance that results in the growth of acne. A period of 3 months may be required for this substance to work on eliminating acne rosacea completely.
How long do I use Finacea Gel for before I notice a difference?
Finacea Gel is usually applied 2 times a day- in the morning and at bedtime. It may take 4 weeks before improvements start to show. If, during this time duration, your symptoms do not alleviate, keep on applying the gel as usual. Wait for 12 weeks to see if your acne rosacea is completely treated. Otherwise, if your symptoms persist or get worse, consult your doctor right away.
What are the side effects of Finacea Gel?
