What is Isotrex?
Isotrex contains the active ingredient isotretinoin and helps for severe form of acne and rosacea (acne rosacea). The gel ensures that the acne symptoms disappeared within a few weeks. It reduces excessive sebum production, and ensures that the sebaceous glands don’t grow. Cell division of the upper layer of skin is stimulated, allowing that old cells quickly disappear. In addition, Isotrex ensures that new pimples or blackheads formation will not arise and inhibits the inflammatory response, which reduces redness.
