Enhanced Azelaic Acid Gel-Cream
Please note: This page is for reference only; this product is not available online.
Enhanced Azelaic Acid Gel-Cream provides combined anti-inflammatory and skin-clearing effects aimed at helping resolve and prevent:
while helping lightly and gently renew skin texture prone to dryness, visibly open pores and/or superficial irregularity.
The inclusion of a high percentage of anti-inflammatory pure beta-glucan (common to Rosacea Cooling Lotion and Rosacea Treatment Fluid) greatly assists healing, de-sensitization and the prevention of treatment-resistance over time compared with azelaic acid alone.
Enhanced Azelaic Acid Gel-Cream Instructions for Use
For night-time use only.
If especially prone to skin sensitivity, wait 10-15 minutes before proceeding to help reduce the surface reactivity of the skin.
Apply a moderate amount of the product to all areas affected by redness and/or pimples, papules and pustules.
Leave to sit for at least ten minutes before retiring.
Unless skin is prone to dryness, preferably avoid the application of rosacea moisturizer after the application of the product, otherwise wait at least half an hour before moisturizing to avoid neutralizing the product's benefits.
If using multiple topical medications as part of your rosacea therapy, layer them as professionally prescribed, or thinnest to thickest.
Enhanced Azelaic Acid Gel-Cream Frequency of Use
Use once every three nights in the first week, every other night from the second week, and nightly from the third week.
Decrease frequency of use if you find lesser use provides the same result as greater use.
This product is available to the general public without registration.
Also available as part of the Complete Rosacea Specialist Treatment Set.
