Assessment Prior to Treatment Initiation

Obtain a pregnancy test within 2 weeks prior to AVAGE Cream therapy. Initiate AVAGE Cream therapy during a menstrual period [see Contraindications (4.1), Warnings and Precautions (5.1), and Use in Specific Populations (8.1, 8.3)].

Carefully assess facial pigmented lesions of concern by a qualified physician (e.g., dermatologist) before application of AVAGE Cream [see Warnings and Precautions (5.4)].

Dosage and Administration Instructions

Remove any makeup before applying AVAGE Cream to the face. Dry the skin before applying the cream after face washing, bathing, or showering. Apply a pea-sized amount once a day at bedtime to lightly cover the entire face, including the eyelids, if desired. Avoid accidental transfer of AVAGE Cream into eyes. Facial moisturizers may be used as frequently as desired. Emollients or moisturizers can be applied either before or after applying AVAGE Cream. However, ensure that the first cream or lotion has absorbed into the skin and has dried completely before subsequent cream or lotion application.

If contact with eyes occurs, rinse thoroughly with water.

AVAGE Cream is for topical use only. AVAGE Cream is not for ophthalmic, oral, or intravaginal use.

Use effective sunscreens and wear protective clothing while using AVAGE Cream.
