Acne vulgaris (gel), acne vulgaris and hyperpigmentation (cream).
Azelaic acid has an antibacterial effect, inhibits hyperkeratosis of the epidermis and reduces the formation of blackheads. It inhibits the growth of Propionibacterium acnes and Staphylococcus epidermidis, bacteria considered important in the pathogenesis of acne vulgaris. It also reduces the content of free fatty acids on the skin’s surface, facilitating the development of acne. In addition, it inhibits the growth of keratinocytes, normalizing their final differentiation. It also inhibits the excessive activity of abnormal melanocytes. Applied topically, it is slightly absorbed through the skin (approximately 3.6%).
Active substance: 1 g of gel contains 150 mg of azelaic acid.
Twice a day – morning and evening – a thin layer of cream or gel is applied to washed and dried skin (the preparation should be patted thoroughly). If skin irritation occurs, the drug is used once a day or treatment is interrupted until the side effects disappear. Acne treatment should last at least 4 weeks; the full effect is usually achieved after several months of use. The treatment for discoloration is used for at least 3 months.
Before use, read the leaflet, which contains indications, contraindications, data on side effects and dosage, as well as information on the use of the medicinal product, or consult a doctor or pharmacist, as any drug used improperly threatens your life or health.
