Tazorac (Tazarotene)

Tazorac (tazarotene) is a topical medication used to treat various skin conditions, such as acne and plaque psoriasis. It belongs to a class of drugs known as retinoids, which are derivatives of vitamin A. Tazorac works by promoting the healthy turnover of skin cells, reducing inflammation, and unclogging pores. Its active ingredient, tazarotene, offers an effective solution for those seeking clearer and healthier skin.

Why Choose Tazorac?

Tazorac is indicated for the treatment of:

  • Acne vulgaris: A common skin condition that causes pimples, blackheads, and whiteheads.
  • Plaque psoriasis: A chronic autoimmune condition characterized by red, scaly patches on the skin

How to use Tazorac?

Tazorac is available in two forms: cream and gel. The specific formulation and strength prescribed will depend on the severity of your skin condition and your healthcare provider’s recommendations. Apply a thin layer of Tazorac to the affected area once daily, preferably in the evening. Ensure that you follow your healthcare provider’s instructions and avoid contact with the eyes, mouth, and other mucous membranes.

Important Safety Information Tazorac

Before using Tazorac, inform your healthcare provider of any allergies, medical conditions, or other medications you may be taking. Avoid excessive sun exposure and use sunscreen while using this medication, as it can increase your skin’s sensitivity to sunlight. Tazorac should not be used by pregnant or breastfeeding women, as it may cause harm to the developing fetus or nursing infant.
