Skinoren 20% Cream
Skinoren is a topical treatment of acne that contains azelaic acid. It works in two way: It reduces the growth of bacteria that clogs pores on the skin and kills off the bacteria on the skin that are responsible for acne breakouts and spots. Both actions combined make Skinoren an effective treatment for acne.
No Hidden Costs
Skinoren is an antibacterial cream applied directly to the affected areas of acne. It contains azelaic acid and reduces the growth of the keratin surface skin cells that can block pores. This helps to unblock the pores and sebaceous glands (glands which secrete sebum) and as a result the sebum can escape. This helps to reduce the formation of blackheads (comedones) and spots.
What does Skinoren cream contain?
Skinoren cream contains azelaic acid 20%. Azelaic acid has a dual mode of action; it helps to reduce the excess growth of skin cells that block pores as well as reducing the number of acne-causing bacteria living on the skin.
How do I use Skinoren cream?
Apply Skinoren to the areas affected by acne twice daily. You should cover the whole affected area, not just the individual spots. If you find that Skinoren irritates your skin initially, reduce the applications to once daily until the irritation passes and then slowly increase back to twice daily applications.
I have started using Skinoren cream and the treated area is red and irritated, is this normal?
Redness and irritation of the treated area can occur when you use Skinoren Cream for the first time. This is not usually serious and normally subsides within a week. During this time reduce the frequency of Skinoren application to once daily to allow your skin to recover and then slowly build up to using it twice daily.
Is Skinoren available for next day delivery?
Yes, we understand that sometimes you want to get your treatment as soon as possible. If ordered before 3:30pm Monday to Friday, Skinoren Cream is available for next day delivery.
Can I use Skinoren when pregnant?
There have been no formal studies carried out on the effects of azelaic acid in pregnant or breastfeeding women. However, animal studies do indicate the potential for effects with respect to pregnancy, embryo-fetal development and postnatal development. However, dose levels without observed adverse effects were well above the maximum recommended human dose.
It is advisable to avoid using Skinoren on the chest while breastfeeding, in case the cream is ingested by the baby.
Can I use other acne treatments with Skinoren cream (azelaic acid)?
You can combine Skinoren with oral antibiotic acne treatments, but Skinoren should not be used with any other acne creams as it may cause excessive drying or irritation to your skin.
Will Skinoren bleach or lighten my clothes?
This topical treatment lacks the potential to bleach or lighten clothes. However, it is recommended that you use this cream at night to avoid soiling your clothing.
