Directions for Applying Veltin

When and How to Take Veltin

Some general considerations to keep in mind during treatment with Veltin include the following:
 
  • Apply this medication once daily to the entire affected areas in the evening, just before bedtime. Use only a pea-sized amount.
     
  • Wash your face with a mild, soap-free cleanser before applying Veltin.
     
  • Make sure to avoid the area around the eyes and lips.
     
  • Do not apply more than a small amount or apply it more than once a day, as using extra increases the risk of skin irritation without increasing the medication's effectiveness.
     
  • Avoid excessive sun exposure, since you will burn more easily.
     
  • For Veltin to work properly, it must be used as prescribed.
     

Dosing Information

There is only one standard dosage for this medication, regardless of the severity of your acne. As always, do not adjust your dose unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so.
