How should I take Finacea?


Follow the directions carefully when taking Finacea. This gel is applied in the morning and the evening. If burning, dryness or irritation develops, your doctor may prescribe once daily application. Finacea may take four or more weeks to work, but keep using it exactly as directed. Other tips include:

  • Wash skin with water and a mild soap or cleansing lotion. Pat dry with a soft towel. Avoid alcoholic cleansers and astringents, especially with rosacea.
  • Apply a thin layer of Finacea. Gently and thoroughly massage into the skin.
  • Don’t cover with bandages, dressings or wrappings. 
  • Wash your hands with soap and water.
