What is Isotrex 0.05% Gel?

Isotrex 0.05% Gel is used to treat mild to moderate acne. The gel contains isotretinoin, an active ingredient which belongs to a group of medicines known as retinoids.

Isotrex 0.05% Gel is a topical treatment designed to reduce inflammation and unblock pores.

How does Isotrex 0.05% Gel work?

Our sebaceous glands naturally produce a substance called sebum. When this blocks the pores on the skin's surface, acne can occur. Although acne most commonly affects young people especially teenagers, it is not uncommon to experience bouts of acne throughout your life.

Isotrex 0.05% Gel contains the active ingredient isotretinoin, part of a group of medicines known as retinoids, which are vitamin A derivatives.

When applied topically (rubbed into the skin), the isotretinoin helps to unblock pores by loosening surface skin cells, allowing the skin's oil-producing glands to resume their normal function.

It also increases skin cell turnover, exfoliating skin and unblocking pores to decrease spots and blackheads and reducing inflammation.

It is important to continue using Isotrex even if you don't see an improvement initially. It can take 6 to 8 weeks of use to see a noticeable improvement; however, you may need to use this medicine for a few months for your acne to fully clear.

This medicine is only available on prescription from your doctor. This can be obtained online or in-person.

How to use Isotrex 0.05% Gel

  • Ensure you wash and dry your skin thoroughly before application
  • Apply a thin layer of the gel to the affected area(s) once or twice a day, as advised by your doctor
  • Wash your hands thoroughly with warm soapy water after applying the gel
  • Do not use more than the recommended amount of gel as this may cause skin irritation
