How does it work?
Azelaic acid in a gel formula here is used to clear bumps, lesions, and swelling caused by moderate rosacea (a skin disease that causes redness, flushing, and pimples on the face). Azelaic acid gel is also used to treat acne and fine lines. It works to treat acne by killing bacteria that infect pores and by decreasing production of keratin, a natural substance that can lead to the development of acne. The way azelaic acid works to treat rosacea is not exactly known. But it does promote skin cell turnover thereby assisting new skin growth.
How do I use it?
Azelaic acid comes as a gel or cream to apply to the skin. It is usually applied twice a day, in the morning and the evening. To help you remember to use azelaic acid, use it at around the same times every day. Follow the directions on the product insert.
Azelaic acid controls acne and rosacea but does not cure these conditions. It may take 4 weeks or longer before you feel the full benefit of azelaic acid. This is a great multipurpose non-prescription cream.
Caution: Do not use if you are allergic to azeleic acid or propylene glycol.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE: Apply small quantity to clean dry face twice daily (avoiding eyelids).
