Tranexamic Acid Description
Tranexamic acid is a synthetic amino acid with hemostatic and anti-inflammatory pharmacological effects. It can inhibit the activity of melanocytes, prevent and improve skin pigmentation, and thus have a certain cosmetic effect.
Tranexamic acid (sometimes shortened to txa) is a medicine that controls bleeding. It helps your blood clot and is used for nosebleeds and heavy periods. If you’re having a tooth taken out, using tranexamic acid mouthwash can help stop bleeding.
