Clindamycin Gel is an anti-infective medical device that stops the growth of bacteria and fight directly with the microorganisms that cause acne.
It is one of the antibiotics that has both bactericidal and bacteriostatic actions. In some forms of infections, Clindamycin Gel stops the growth of pathogenic bacteria and, in some cases Clindamycin Gel penetrates to the infected cells and destroys them, disrupting their feeding channels.
When the gel is applied to the skin, it is absorbed very quickly and begins the pharmacological effect within 60 minutes. It kills bacteria deeply into the sebaceous glands and comedones, as well as reduces the amount of free fatty acids on the surface of the skin from 14% to 2%. Clindamycin Gel is the best for patients with oily and normal skin.
The advantage of this product over other agents for the treatment of acne is simply that it does not dry the skin, removes the uppermost stratum corneum of the skin, but also has antibacterial activity. Very often, long-term treatment of acne is inconclusive, because the infection develops in the skin pores and it causes constant inflammation. Only with the help of antibiotics, it is possible to cure and prevent further recurrence of acne quickly and efficiently.
Clindamycin Gel is used only for the treatment of common acne. It helps to relieve the inflammation, redness, and seal the skin, as well as significantly reduce the number of new lesions. The gel does not have exfoliating action, so after using this drug, cosmetic procedures are necessary to remove the remaining old skin and acne.
With moderate use, Clindamycin Gel does not cause severe side effects and is well tolerated. Only in the early days of the use of the drug, the patient may feel some skin reactions: itching at the application of the gel, burning, redness, dry skin, easy peeling, and increased secretion of sebum. These side effects are the natural when using external agents for the treatment of acne and they are faded after a few days of starting treatment.
Failure to comply with contraindications can cause Pseudomembranous colitis, which manifests in disorder of digestive tract and diarrhea.
