Description

Adapalene Gel is a medication used in the treatment of mild to moderate acne. It prevents the formation of small pimples, blackheads and whiteheads on the skin. It reduces excessive oil production of the skin and reduces inflammation or cleans the blocked pores.

Adapalene Gel is for external use only. You should always use it exactly as your doctor has told you. The affected area should be clean and dry before application. You must wash your hands thoroughly before and after applying this medicine. This medicine should be used regularly to get the most benefit from it. Do not use more than you need as it will not clear your condition faster and some side effects may be increased. If your condition goes on for longer than four weeks or gets worse at any time, let your doctor know. You can help this medicine work better by keeping the affected areas clean.

Common side effects include itching, skin redness, dry skin, skin burn, and skin peeling at the site of application. Most of these are temporary and usually resolve with time.

BENEFITS OF ADAPALENE GEL

In Acne

Derpalin Adapalene Gel helps treat acne (commonly called pimples) by reducing the production of excessive oil in the skin that causes acne. It usually takes a few weeks to have a noticeable effect so keep using it even if it appears not to be working. Sometimes acne may get worse before it gets better, however, with proper use, your skin will get clearer. The earlier you start using it, the less likely you are to get scars. This medicine will help improve your mood and uplift your confidence as your skin becomes acne free.

HOW ADAPALENE GEL WORKS

Derpalin Adapalene Gel is a form of vitamin A which treats acne (pimples). It works by preventing accumulation of the sebum (skin’s natural oil) which unblocks the pores and allows natural exfoliation of the outer layers of skin.
