Finacea gel contains azelaic acid which inhibits the growth of keratinocytes (cells found on the skin) and kills bacteria on the surface of the skin.
Azelaic acid is also referred to as a chemical exfoliator, though it is gentler on the skin than other medicines in this class.
While Azelaic acid is found in a number of over-the-counter treatments for acne and rosacea, Finacea 15% gel is not available to buy over the counter. However, you can buy Finacea 15% gel online from Prescription Doctor following an online consultation with one of our doctors.
You may notice a difference in your symptoms after just 4 weeks of treatment with Finacea. If no improvement is seen after a month of correct usage (as prescribed), contact your doctor.
Some people may find that Finacea does not help their acne, and may require an alternative treatment such as Soolantra.
Rosacea is a skin condition causing redness and inflammation on different areas of the face, such as the cheeks and nose. The rash may cause irritation leading to a stinging or burning sensation.
According to the British Association of Dermatologists (BAD), rosacea is more likely to affect people between the ages of 40 and 60. Women are more prone to rosacea than men, though the symptoms may appear more severe in men with rosacea.
Moreover, rosacea affects people differently, depending on the specific type. Some people may experience a rash on the cheeks while others may experience acne-like breakouts on the chin. There are 4 main types of rosacea:
Rosacea flare-ups may be caused by any number of factors or triggers. Once a trigger is known, it can be avoided to prevent rosacea flare-ups from happening in the future.
Some triggers of rosacea may include:
The NHS say that rosacea is not contagious, nor is it caused by poor hygiene. Though, some cleansing products may exacerbate your condition.
Untreated rosacea may become severe causing complications such as eye infections (conjunctivitis) and nasal disfigurement (rhinophyma).
No matter how rosacea affects you, you should speak to your doctor about your condition and discuss possible causes of flare-ups and treatment options. There are a number of treatments available for rosacea, allowing you to find the one which works for you.
While there is no cure for rosacea, there are a number of treatments which have been proven to reduce the symptoms, such as Finacea 15% gel.
There may also be lifestyle changes you can make to reduce your risk of flare-ups such as:
Azelaic acid, the active ingredient of Finacea works in two ways to combat rosacea. It is more specifically effective against the papulopustular rosacea type.
Firstly, azelaic acid inhibits the growth of keratin cells on the surface of the skin. These cells often block pores and contribute to the development of papules and pustules (spots) on the surface of the skin.
Azelaic acid also works as an antibiotic, killing bacteria called Priopionebacterium acnes. This bacterium feeds on sebum in the pores of the skin and excrete chemicals which cause inflammation and reddening of the surrounding tissues.
Finacea is a long-term treatment and should be taken regularly. Your doctor will advise you on how long you will need to take Finacea for.
For the treatment of rosacea, Finacea should be applied to the affected area twice a day - once in the morning and once in the evening. For best results, use the treatment at the same time each day.
Always wash your hands after using Finacea 15% gel.
It’s important to use Finacea as prescribed by your doctor.
If you forget to use Finacea when you should, use it as soon as you remember, unless it is almost time for your next application, in which case you should skip the missed dose and use Finacea again at the usual time. Do not use more Finacea to make up for the missed dose.
If you accidentally apply too much Finacea gel, wipe away any excess with a clean tissue and discard it safely. Using more Finacea 15% gel than you should will not clear your rosacea faster, but may increase your risk of side effects.
All medications carry the risk of side effects, but not everyone will experience them. You should always be aware of the side effects or cautions associated with any medication you take.
The full list of side effects and cautions of using Finacea, as well as the full list of its ingredients, can be found in the patient information leaflet that comes with your medicine.
Very common side effects of Finacea include:
Common side effects of using Finacea include:
Rare side effects of using Finacea include:
Do not use Finacea if you are allergic to azelaic acid or any of the other ingredients listed in the patient information leaflet.
Signs of an allergic reaction include:
If you get some Finacea gel in your eyes, rinse your eyes with water. If you experience prolonged irritation after rinsing the product out of your eyes, seek immediate medical attention.
Always seek your doctor’s advice before buying Finacea online from Prescription Doctor.
Please inform our prescriber of all medications you are currently taking, including those prescribed by your doctor, bought over the counter from a pharmacy, as well as herbal and vitamin supplements.
Do not use Finacea 15% gel past the expiry date printed on the packaging. The date refers to the last day of the month.
Never throw away medicine via household or water waste. Take any unwanted or expired medication to your local pharmacy and ask them to dispose it safely on your behalf.
Always store Finacea out of sight and reach from children and pets.
Never share your medicine with anybody else, even if they are experiencing the same symptoms as you or have been diagnosed with the same condition as you.
Using Finacea should not affect your ability to drive or operate machinery. If you notice dizziness or visual disturbances after using Finacea, avoid such activities until you feel that it is safe for you to resume them.
Finacea is unlikely to be affected by the consumption of alcohol. However, if your rosacea is triggered or exacerbated by consuming alcohol, you should avoid or limit alcohol consumption while using Finacea.
If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, consult your doctor before using Finacea as it may not be suitable for you.
There are no known interactions between using Finacea and contraceptive pills, including the morning after pill. If you are concerned about any medicine reducing the effectiveness of your contraceptive, speak to your doctor or a pharmacist.
Yes, you can use make-up while using Finacea gel. Apply Finacea first and allow the area to dry before applying make-up.
If you have rosacea, you may want to use cosmetic products which do not exacerbate your symptoms. Look for products intended for sensitive skin.
There have been no reports that using Finacea will affect shaving. For men, shaving can pose a significant threat to their rosacea, potentially worsening their symptoms. It may be more suitable for men to use electric razors instead of normal razors to reduce the level of irritation on the skin.
You should also avoid shaving creams, lotions and aftershave products which may irritate your skin. Instead, use shaving products which are suitable for sensitive skin types and use a moisturiser or balm after shaving to soothe the skin.
