and btw i have only brown spots to get rid of and few blemishes. I was recommended to use 10% glycolic acid lotion to get rid of blemished skin.. i dont know if its workin.. then i had this Retin cream that was suppose to exfloiate ur skin and get rid of brown spots..
Alright I just got some azelex today, and I'm wondering how I should use it combined with differin. I know I'm supposed to take differin once at night, and I'm thinking that I should first apply the differin, and then apply the azelex...or perhaps only "spot" treat with azelex.
I looked up this azelex and the financea stuff in a search and it says its for acne. How does it work to reduce red/brown marks? Also, I'm filipino and noticed it said something about monitoring darker skinned patients. Is this stuff like hydroquinoine?
Hi gang! I missed you all, but not my bad face..thank you for the welcome back...just cheking in on all of you. Hope you are well micheguns!
Ok...Finacea is a prescription and I obtained it from my derm,after I asked her about it..it is 15 % strength azelaic acid. It is primarily used for rosacea..I don't have it, but heck it worked for me! Also the Plexion wash is for that condtion as well,and I love that as well, or perhaps the combination. How would have known??
For red bean..Finacea is not a hyroquinoine(sp), and I have read about dark skinned folks having to beware of it's lightening effects. I have olive skin...I have not experienced anything but positive effects from using it.
Also please note**** This medication is NOT to spot treat, but rather be applied all over the face to experience favorable effects.
