What is Enstilar Foam?

Enstilar Foam is a highly effective topical treatment, containing the active ingredients calcipotriol and betamethasone, used to reduce inflammation and slow the overproduction of skin cells caused by psoriasis. 

Each 60g bottle of Enstilar comes with a spray nozzle, making every application easy and mess-free even on those harder to reach places. Enstilar can be applied to any area of the body, excluding the face or genitals, that are affected by plaque psoriasis including the scalp. 

Apply just once a day for 4 weeks and see a noticeable improvement to the look and feel of your skin. Leaving skin affected by psoriasis feeling soothed and comfortable.

 

What is Enstilar Foam used for?

Enstilar Foam has been clinically proven to not only reduce inflammation caused by Psoriasis Vulgaris, or plaque psoriasis but to also slow the growth rate of the skin cells that cause the scaly, flaky, dry patches of skin to develop during a flare-up of this condition. 

 

What is Psoriasis Vulgaris?

Psoriasis Vulgaris is otherwise known as plaque psoriasis and is just one type of psoriasis that causes red, dry, silver scaled skin lesions or plaques to develop. Most commonly the plaques develop on the elbows, knees, scalp and lower back but can affect other areas. 

All types of psoriasis are caused by an overproduction of skin cells, which causes immature cells to build-up rapidly on the skin surface resulting in dry, flaky or scaly patches to appear. 

Psoriasis can affect people in different ways but often these patches become itchy and irritated and this is where topical treatments such as Enstilar Foam can help to make you feel more comfortable. 

 

How does Enstilar Foam work?

The active ingredients in Enstilar Foam are calcipotriol and betamethasone. These two substances work together to reduce inflammation of the skin and also slow the rate in which new cells are being produced by the skin affected by psoriasis. 

  • Calcipotriol - Vitamin D derivative that slows the production of skin cells
  • Betamethasone - corticosteroid that reduces inflammation

 

Enstilar Foam alternatives

Enstilar is a brand of plaque psoriasis treatment containing calcipotriol and betamethasone. Dovobet ointment is an acceptable alternative to this treatment, containing the same active ingredients and is safe to use on the body and scalp.
