“Finacea skin cream is a gel-based preparation that contains azelaic acid. This spot busting product kills bacteria, unblocks the pores and smooths out the skin. You can get other topical treatments for mild to moderate acne, like Acnecide, Epiduo and Differin, but Finacea gel may be less harsh and irritating for people with sensitive skin. A unique advantage is that you can use Finacea cream for rosacea. People with rosacea or acne rosacea have skin similar to acne, such as redness, bumps, and spots.

At Click2Pharmacy, we have a service where you can buy Finacea online. We have a team of prescribing pharmacists that can provide prescriptions for medicines. You will need to answer some questions first so we can check if you are suitable to take Finacea 15% azelaic acid gel"

What is Finacea Gel?

Finacea gel is an anti-acne medicine used for mild to moderate facial acne and to treat rosacea. Finacea gel contains the active ingredient 15% Azelaic Acid, which is used to fight mild to moderate acne. If other topical treatments aren’t working, you can use Finacea gel as an alternative. 

How does Finacea gel work?

Finacea gel contains azelaic acid, which kills the bacteria responsible for causing inflammation and infected spots. Finacea gel also works to unclog pores, aiming to prevent future breakouts and clear your skin. The gel’s exfoliating effect can also help make your skin smoother and reduce the appearance of blemishes and redness

For those with sensitive skin, azelaic acid is less harsh than some other acne treatments, which means fewer side effects like dryness or irritation.

Can I use Finacea gel for rosacea?

Finacea gel is not only used to treat acne but also used to treat rosacea. Rosacea symptoms can include red patches, bumps, and even itchy skin. Azelaic acid is a naturally occurring dicarboxylic acid which is used to fight papulopustular rosacea and has been shown to reduce inflammation, making it a good option for rosacea treatment. It’s gentler than typical AHAs, which is ideal for those with sensitive skin or conditions like rosacea. However, if you experience severe or long-lasting burning, stinging, or itching while using Finacea for a rosacea flare-up, consult your GP or pharmacist for alternative treatments. 

Who is Finacea Gel suitable for?

Finacea azelaic acid gel is suitable for adults and children over the age of 12 to treat acne and rosacea.

You should avoid using Finacea gel if:

  • You are allergic to azelaic acid or any other ingredients of Finacea gel
  • If you have asthma, use Finacea gel with care. Worsening of asthma has happened in people using Finacea azelaic acid gel.

How to use Finacea Gel

Follow these steps when applying Finacea gel:

  • Wash your hands before and after
  • Clean the affected area with a mild soap or soap-free cleanser, and pat your skin dry with a soft towel
  • Apply a thin layer of the gel (approximately 2.5cm) to the affected areas twice a day
  • Gently massage it in until it’s fully absorbed

A 30g tube of Finacea gel should last up to 6 weeks if the recommended amount is used twice daily.

How quickly will I see results with Finacea Gel?

When using Finacea gel, you should see an improvement in your skin in the first 4 weeks. If there is no change to your skin after 12 weeks, or your skin worsens, stop using Finacea gel and contact your GP or pharmacist. 

You can use Finacea gel for acne or rosacea for several months.

Finacea Gel Alternatives 

If you find that Finacea isn’t suitable or doesn’t work for you, there are other alternative acne treatments that Click2Pharmacy can provide by prescription from our dedicated acne treatment clinic. These include tablets, as well as alternative topical ointments. Talk to one of our pharmacists today if you are unsure which is best for you. 

Finacea Gel vs Lymecycline and Epiduo Combination

If Finacea Gel isn’t working, combining Lymecycline and Epiduo might help. Lymecycline is an antibiotic pill, and Epiduo is a topical gel. Together, they fight both acne bacteria and skin inflammation.

Finacea Gel vs Aknemycin Gel

Aknemycin Gel is another option to consider if Finacea gel isn’t suitable or working to treat your rosacea or acne. It contains erythromycin, an antibiotic, and tretinoin, which helps skin renewal. It’s good for treating both acne and pimples. 

Finacea Gel vs Skinoren Gel

Skinoren Gel is actually quite similar to Finacea as both have azelaic acid. The main difference is the strength and added ingredients. Skinoren might be milder, making it a good choice if Finacea irritates your skin.

It is great to have somewhere local that does blood testing. The staff are lovely, helpful and experienced. They fit me in last minute. There is never a wait and the results back within a day or two.
After refusal of doctors appointment same old same old ring back etc. I was invited at 5.25 to see doctor I drove over immediately. Everything fully explained and checked over I was leaving by 6pm with penicillin for strep throat. Had I followed my doctors receptionist I would probably have suffered longer and increased the chances of a worse infection.I Great efficient service.
