‘Pimples and acne’: How a cream is treating the problem
The acne scar cream Azelaic Acid acne acne conglobsata has been approved by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) to treat acne scarring.
It is one of three acne treatments approved for treating acne, and was first approved for that purpose in the UK last year.
The Azelaanac cream comes in a cream base that contains Azelaas natural skin ingredients including Azelaa glycolic acid, a natural acne treatment, azelaic hydroxy acid, azellaic acid peptides and azelaas active ingredients.
A gel base has been developed for the cream which contains ingredients such as glycolics, arbutin and arbutins hydroxy acids, hydroxyacids, hydrocortisone and sodium hydroxide, and a peptide agent to help reduce scarring and reduce the appearance of pimples.
“This product offers immediate and long-term results in terms of reducing acne scar and increasing the appearance and size of pimple-free patches,” said Prof. Gabriele Scarponi, from the Department of Dermatology at the University of Padova, Italy.
“For this purpose, Azelaac has been shown to reduce the number of pimps in patients, which are the most common causes of acne.
The cream also works on both superficial and deep acne scars, as well as on the upper and lower eyelids, skin around the eyes, and on the palms and soles of the hands.
A skin biopsy of a patient with acne scars was performed to confirm that AzelaAc cream was the only treatment available.
It has been demonstrated that azelaac cream is effective in reducing the appearance, size and scarring of acne scars.
The FDA said Azelaacs skin treatment will also prevent the appearance or development of new acne scars.”
The FDA also said Azellaac cream can be used for people with acne who have not responded to previous therapies and for people who have already had significant acne scarred skin, such as patients with psoriasis, inflammatory bowel disease, rheumatoid arthritis or cystic fibrosis.
A patient’s skin condition, skin type, age, race, and weight are also important factors in the effectiveness of Azelaans skin treatment.
“There are several studies showing that Azellaaac can help to improve the appearance in patients with normal skin,” the FDA said.
“The Azellaanac skin treatment can be particularly effective in women with oily skin.”
