Freederm Gel 10g and Freederm Treatment Gel 25g are anti-inflammatory spot treatments. They contain an anti-inflammatory active ingredient - nicotinamide - which has been clinically proven to help get rid of inflamed red spots. These are the ones that are reddish-coloured, usually tender, and sometimes have pus in them.
Freederm Treatment Gel 25g is available over the counter at pharmacies. Most pharmacy assistants know all about the benefits of Freederm gel – so don't worry about asking them for advice while you're there.
Freederm Gel 10g is widely available, not just from pharmacy.
How it works:
Freederm gel works in a different way to other spot treatments you can buy, thanks to its anti-inflammatory action.
It penetrates the skin to reach the sebaceous glands – the glands that produce oil in your skin. By targeting this area with its anti-inflammatory action, Freederm gel doesn’t only deal with the spots that are already visible, but helps stop those that are just starting to form too.
And thanks to its special hydro-gel formulation, you'll find that Freederm gel is less drying than some spot or acne treatments.
How to use:
Apply Freederm gel to the affected and surrounding skin, twice a day, morning and night, after cleansing and gently drying with a clean towel.
When you apply the gel, spread a thin film of it as evenly as you can over the whole area where there are spots or acne.
Make sure you read and keep Freederm gel's 'Patient Information' Leaflet, which is in the pack. This will give you more useful instructions on how to get the best from your treatment.
