Faceclin Gel


Overview

Introduction

Faceclin Gel is a combination of two medicines that effectively treats acne. It minimizes inflammation such as redness, itching, and swelling. It also kills acne-causing microorganisms and prevents infection. This helps prevent pimples, blackheads, and whiteheads on the skin.

Faceclin Gel is strictly advised for external use only. Use it in the dose and duration advised by your doctor. Apply it only on the affected areas of the skin. Avoid unnecessary sun exposure and cover the treated areas with clothing or use a sunscreen before stepping out in the sun. Drink plenty of water and use moisturizer as it may lead to dryness of mouth, lips, and eyes. It is advised, not to have any cosmetic procedures during the treatment.

Use of Faceclin Gel may lead to a few common side effects like itching, redness, and burning sensation at the application site. If these side effects do not improve with time or worsen, inform your doctor.

How to use Faceclin Gel

This medicine is for external use only. Use it in the dose and duration as advised by your doctor. Check the label for directions before use. Clean and dry the affected area and apply the gel. Wash your hands after applying, unless hands are the affected area.

How Faceclin Gel works

Faceclin Gel is a combination of two medicines: Clindamycin and Nicotinamide, which treats pimples (acne). Clindamycin is an antibiotic which works by penetrating into the skin and killing acne-causing bacteria. Nicotinamide is a form of vitamin B. It exerts anti-inflammatory effects when applied to the skin and reduces swelling, redness and tenderness associated with acne.
