Adults get breakouts, too. In fact, some adults have breakouts when they’re in their 40s and 50s.

What you can do

Effectively managing acne starts with good skin care. Visit Skin-Care Tips to learn more. Remember, your doctor is your best source of information about how to treat your acne. Talk with your doctor before starting a new skincare routine or changing your existing routine.

Treatment is available

While over-the-counter products may be effective for mild breakouts, many people require a prescription medication to get their acne under control. Talk with your doctor about treatment options like FABIOR Foam, the first and only prescription retinoid treatment for acne available in a foam.

FABIOR Foam treats both non-inflammatory and inflammatory acne

In people 12 years and older, FABIOR Foam is proven to be more effective than placebo (foam with no medicine) in treating both non-inflammatory and inflammatory types of acne, including blackheads, whiteheads, papules, pustules, and nodules.

Use FABIOR Foam just once a day

FABIOR Foam is the first prescription retinoid treatment for moderate-to-severe acne available in a foam. A retinoid is a medication that is derived from vitamin A.

Remember, FABIOR Foam needs time to work

In clinical studies, participants with moderate-to-severe acne who applied FABIOR Foam once daily saw a 56.1% reduction in total acne lesions after 12 weeks of treatment. Some participants saw improvements start as early as week 2, with the effectiveness of FABIOR Foam continuing to increase over the 12-week period. Individual results may vary, so talk with your doctor about what to expect from treatment with FABIOR Foam.
