How DUOBRII Lotion Works
Hal and Taz work together in a single,
first-of-its-kind topical treatment for plaque psoriasis
Hal has powerful antiinflammatory abilities and reduces the burning and irritation associated with vitamin A derivatives. He works with Taz to clear plaques from your skin.
Taz has been shown to reduce skin thinning associated with corticosteroids, with well-established tolerability in psoriasis when partnered with a corticosteroid. He extends the clearing process even after stopping treatment.
The strong antiinflammatory agent (halobetasol propionate) works to clear plaques, while the vitamin A derivative (tazarotene) helps extend the clearing process.
