Finacea Gel Tube 30g
Finacea Gel contains 15% azelaic acid. It is used to treat moderate and mild forms of acne. It also treats Rosacea and can also be used for greasy skin conditions.
Finacea is used to treat the following conditions:
1 - Mild to moderate acne vulgaris, usually simply called acne. When rubbed into the skin, the azelaic acid in Finacea kills the bacteria that cause acne. Finacea also stops the acne relevant (epidermal) skin cells from growing too strongly and thus blocking the pores of the skin to form pimples.
2 - Rosacea, where the skin on the nose and cheeks has one or more of the following features: a redness that looks like a blush; pimples; small knobbly lumps on the nose and / or thin red lines due to enlarged blood vessels. (If using Finacea for rosacea, you should contact a doctor for a correct diagnosis of your condition before commencing treatment.) It is not known exactly how Finacea works to treat rosacea.
The active substance is azelaic acid (Each gram of Finacea contains 150 mg of azelaic acid).
The other ingredients are: Benzoic acid (E210), carbomers, disodium edetate, lecithin, polysorbate 80, propylene glycol, purified water, sodium hydroxide and triglycerides medium chain.
Before Finacea is applied, the skin should be cleaned with water, or with a mild skin-cleansing agent.
It should be applied to the affected areas of the skin morning and night and should be used regularly over several months. This dosage may be modified by your doctor or pharmacist.
Use of Finacea more than twice daily will not increase its effectiveness and could cause irritation.
Massaged into the skin gently until it vanishes.
Finacea should be applied sparingly (approximately 0.5g, equivalent to a 2.5cm strip of gel is sufficient for the entire facial area).
The length of time that Finacea needs to be used will vary from person to person and will also depend on the initial severity of your skin disorder. Improvement is usually noticed within 1-2 months of use, but to obtain the best results.
The gel should be used regularly over several months. Whilst in most cases you will not need to use Finacea for more than 6 months, it may be used for longer periods, and may also be reused after a period of stopping.
