About Duac Gel
What is Duac Gel, and how does it work?
Duac Gel is a topical acne treatment that combines two active ingredients, Clindamycin and Benzoyl Peroxide. Clindamycin helps to reduce inflammation and kill acne-causing bacteria, while Benzoyl Peroxide unclogs pores and prevents new acne from forming. This dual-action approach makes it highly effective in treating acne.
How do I apply Duac Gel?
To use Duac Gel, cleanse your face and pat it dry. Apply a thin layer of the gel to the affected areas once daily, usually in the evening. It's important to follow the instructions provided by your healthcare provider or on the product packaging.
When can I expect to see results with Duac Gel?
Results may vary, but many users report seeing an improvement in their acne within a few weeks of consistent use. It's essential to continue using the product as directed, even if you don't see immediate results, as it can take time for acne to fully respond to treatment.
Can I use Duac Gel for severe acne?
Duac Gel is typically prescribed for mild to moderate acne. If you have severe acne, it's advisable to consult with a dermatologist who can recommend a more suitable treatment plan.
What are the potential side effects of Duac Gel?
Common side effects may include dryness, redness, peeling, or a burning sensation at the application site. These side effects are typically mild and temporary. If you experience severe or persistent side effects, consult your healthcare provider.
Can I wear makeup while using Duac Gel?
Yes, you can apply makeup while using Duac Gel. However, it's recommended to use non-comedogenic (non-pore-clogging) makeup products, and to wait a few minutes after applying Duac Gel to allow it to absorb fully before applying makeup.
Is Duac Gel safe to use during pregnancy or while breastfeeding?
Our prescribers at Access Doctor do not prescribe Duac if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
It's crucial to tell your healthcare provider before using any medication, including Duac Gel, if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. They can assess the potential risks and benefits and provide guidance based on your specific situation.
Can I use Duac Gel on body acne, or is it just for the face?
Duac Gel is primarily intended for use on the face. If you have body acne, consult with a healthcare provider for recommendations on appropriate treatments.
Does Duac gel need to be stored in a fridge?
No, Duac Gel does not need to be stored in a refrigerator. It should be stored at room temperature, typically between 20-25 degrees celsius. It's important to keep it in a cool, dry place and protect it from excessive heat or freezing temperatures.
Storing Duac Gel in the refrigerator is not necessary and may not be suitable, as extreme temperatures can affect the stability and effectiveness of the product.
What should I do if I miss a Duac Gel application?
If you miss an application, apply the next dose as soon as you remember. If it's close to the time for your next scheduled application, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular schedule. Do not apply extra Duac Gel to make up for a missed dose.
Can I use Duac Gel with other skincare products?
It's generally best to use Duac Gel as directed by your healthcare provider. You should avoid using other topical acne products at the same time, as this can increase the risk of skin irritation. If you have questions about combining Duac Gel with other products, consult your healthcare professional.
