Finacea is used for treating mild to moderate rosacea (a skin condition marked by red eruptions, usually on the cheeks and nose). It works by killing the bacteria that causes rosacea. It also helps the skin to renew itself more quickly and can reduce pimple and blackhead formation.

It contains AzA (azaleic acid), which is found naturally in the body and in foods such as whole grains, and has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. It can also be used in conjunction with nonirritating skin-care products and cosmetics.
