22 Jul Niacinamide 4% Gel for Acne “My face never looked so good”
A 36 year old woman had been battling acne since childhood. Her husband would comment that he felt like he was married to a teenager. She had tried every over the counter and prescription product on the market but had never been able to get control over her acne. Her next step before contacting us was Accutane® which she was not to eager to take due to risks and side effects.
She found us at a conference and was looking through our compounding pharmacy materials and noticed we had some compounded options for acne. We discussed Niacinamide 4% Topical Gel and how it has been shown to be just as effective as clindamycin gel. She used it twice daily for several months and reported that her face had never looked so good. She is very pleased with the results.
