What is Isotrex?
Isotrex Gel (Isotretinoin) is used topically as a gel to treat mild to moderate acne. Isotrex's active ingredient has also been shown to have possible beneficial effects for the skin. Its main ingredient is isotretinoin, which is a type of retinoid derived from vitamin A.
What is it used for?
This gel helps to treat acne by unblocking pores and allowing oil producing glands to function as normal, leading to a decrease in the forming of spots and blackheads. It will also shorten the lifespan of skin cells, meaning skin cells are replaced quicker and the skin is fresher and cleaner.
How to use Isotrex?
Typically Isotrex Gel (Isotretinoin) is applied in the following way:
- Clean your face using clean water and allow 10 to 15 minutes to dry.
- Squeeze a small amount of gel onto your fingers and spread the gel over the affected areas.
- Rub the gel into the skin using a circular motion until the gel dries.
- Wash your hands thoroughly using soap.
Please note: Do not use Isotrex Gel after the expiry date which is stated on the tube and carton (after exp). The expiry date refers to the last day of that month.
This product should be used within two months of first opening. After two months, discard any unused portion.
How long does it take to work?
This product must be used consistently for at least 6 to 8 weeks consistently in order to notice improvements. This is because the gel does not help treat existing spots and blackheads which have already began developing, but instead works to reduce the production of new spots and blackheads.
