Description

What is Skinoren cream and what is it used for?

Skinoren is a topical cream used to treat acne. Among its ingredients, Skinoren cream contains the active ingredient azelaic acid. Azelaic acid has a dual mode of action; it reduces the growth of the keratin cells that block pores and sebaceous glands causing spots, as well as killing the bacteria that live on your skin that can be responsible for acne. Following a free consultation, a supply can be made by our very own skilled and trained pharmacist, under a patient group direction if they are satisfied that it is the right treatment for you.

Where can you buy Skinoren cream?

Skinoren cream is available to buy from Star pharmacy, under a patient group direction – following a free consultation, to help to treat acne. A prescription-only cream, it is not available over the counter.

Skinoren 20% cream is a prescription-only medicine (POM) used for reducing the symptoms of acne. Acne symptoms will present as blackheads and whiteheads, which are often referred to as spots or pimples.

How does Skinoren cream work?

In the treatment of acne, azelaic acid works in two ways. It acts to reduce the growth of keratin surface skin cells. These surface cells can mix with sebum, which is a natural oily substance produced by the skin in the sebaceous glands. When keratin skin cells mix with sebum they can form a plug, blocking the pores on the skin.

This can lead to blackheads and spots developing. By reducing the growth of keratin skin cells, Skinoren reduces the chances of pore-blocking plugs from forming.

Skinoren cream also kills the bacteria associated with acne. This common bacteria feeds on the sebum produced by the skin. This feeding causes the bacteria to produce waste products and fatty acids that irritate the sebaceous glands, causing them to become infected and inflamed and resulting in acne symptoms.

Azelaic acid works to decrease the number of propionibacterium by reducing the sebum on which they feed. This reduction in bacterial numbers reduces the irritation and inflammation of the sebaceous glands, allowing the skin to heal naturally. Azelaic acid also has the ability to lighten the skin by affecting melanin production, which is why some people use it to treat hyperpigmentation or dark underarm skin.

How long does Skinoren cream take to work?

Skinoren cream is suitable for the treatment of mild to moderate acne. The duration of use can vary from patient to patient, and also depends on the severity of the acne. In general, a distinct improvement becomes apparent after about 4 weeks. To obtain best results, the cream should be used continuously over a period of several months. It is important to continue to use the cream regularly over the entire period of treatment.

If you are presenting with symptoms of mild to moderate acne vulgaris, which has not responded to an adequate trial of benzoyl peroxide (6 to 8 weeks) and would like to buy skinoren then simply complete our online questionnaire and our experienced and skilled pharmacist will review this and if they’re satisfied it’s the right treatment for you, a supply can be made, under a patient group direction. However, if you do not meet the requirements, a supply will not be made and a full refund will be given.
