Acne Treatments - Azelaic Acid

The introduction of azelaic acid
Azelaic acid is found in wheat, barley, and rye. It has anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, and exfoliating properties, making it a great treatment product for acne and rosacea. Since azelaic acid inhibits melanin synthesis, it is also effective against hyperpigmentation and melasma.
You can only get azelaic acid products via prescription in the United States and some Asian countries, but other places offer it as over-the-counter treatments. Prescription products with azelaic acid as the active ingredient include Skinoren, Azelex, AcneDerm, and Finacea. Skinoren, Azelex, and AcneDerm are targeted as acne treatments, while Finacea is more for rosacea.

Skinoren is available in both cream and gel form. The cream version has 20% azelaic acid while the gel form has 15%. I have used both before and prefer the gel because it is lighter, less irritating, and less pore clogging. Azelex is only available in cream form, with 20% azelaic acid. Finally, Finacea contains 15% azelaic acid in a gel base. (Skinoren gel is actually supposed to be the same thing as Finacea because they are both made by Intendis.)


How to use azelaic acid
When used in prescription strength to treat acne, Azelaic Acid may lead to a burning, stinging, tingling or itching skin. However, these symptoms usually subside within a few weeks of use, and are generally much less frequent than with most other anti-acne prescription medications. In addition, because the ingredient has been shown to promote hair growth, it is possible for one to experience excessive facial hair growth when topically applying this ingredient to the face. This has been an FDA approved ingredient since 2002.
