Azelaic acid is a topical treatment used to manage acne and rosacea while improving overall skin texture.

Azelaic acid works by inhibiting the growth of acne-causing bacteria and normalising the shedding of dead skin cells.

  • Fights Acne Bacteria: Reduces the presence of acne-causing bacteria.
  • Reduces Redness: Calms the skin and decreases redness, especially in rosacea.
  • Smooths Skin Texture: Improves overall skin smoothness and clarity.

Improvements can be seen within 4 weeks for conditions such as redness or congestion but significant results typically appear within 8-12 weeks.

Common side effects include mild burning, itching, and redness. This is not a complete list of side effects and others may occur. Always read your Uncouth patient information leaflet prior to using your treatment.
