Treat your acne with the only retinoid available in a foam

The FABIOR Foam Dispenser

FABIOR Foam is a topical medicine available by prescription that is used once a day to treat moderate-to-severe acne in people 12 years and older. It is not known if FABIOR Foam is safe and effective in children under 12 years of age.

What you can do

FABIOR Foam treats both non-inflammatory and inflammatory lesions.

The active ingredient of FABIOR Foam is tazarotene, which belongs to a class of acne medicines called retinoids that are derived from vitamin A. FABIOR Foam is the only retinoid acne treatment available in a foam.

FABIOR Foam is:

  • A moisturizing, water-based formulation
  • Quickly absorbed into the skin without greasiness or residue
  • Easy to apply to the face and upper trunk, including both hair-bearing and non–hair-bearing areas
  • Free of ethanol, fragrance, and preservatives

In clinical studies, patients saw a 56.1% reduction in total acne lesions.

Studies included patients with moderate-to-severe acne using FABIOR Foam once daily for 12 weeks. Some participants started seeing results after 2 weeks. Effectiveness of FABIOR Foam continued to increase over the 12-week period.
