Finacea Gel Uses

Finacea Gel, with the generic name of azelaic acid, is a topical medication indicated to treat inflammatory papules & pustules of mild to moderate rosacea. Rosacea is a skin condition that causes small, red, pus-filled bumps on areas like the nose, cheeks, and forehead. This medication is effective in both inflamed and non-inflamed lesions.

This is available in Finacea Gel 15%.

Finacea Gel Mechanism of Action

This topical agent’s exact mechanism of action is not known. However, it is thought that it has the capacity to inhibit the synthesis of cellular protein in aerobic and anaerobic bacteria. This drug can also improve acne vulgaris by normalizing the keratin process and reducing microcomedone formation.
