Acne Treatment With Adaplene

Adaplene is retinoid, derivative of Vitamin A. It is believed that Adaplene works by stopping the acne forming under the skin surface. Adaplene does not cure acne but controls it. Adaplene is available in liquid, gel or cream and is to be applied to acne prone skin and acne affected skin.. In the beginning many users find acne getting worse. That should not worry the user. Keep using Adaplene and slowly the acne will clear. It takes about two to three months for acne to clear up with Adaplene usage.

Adaplene should not be applied to skin affected with eczema. If you have skin affected by sunburn, or broken or cut, do not use Adaplene unless the skin is healed. If you are using any other skincare product, your doctor should be informed. Many skin care products may irritate the skin if used with Adaplene. Products that contain Alpha Hydroxy Acids, Sulphur, Salicylic Acid, Resorcinol, Alcohol are some that have to be avoided. It is always better to discuss about cosmetics you may be using with your doctor as some of them may contain something that may cause irritation if used with Adaplene..

Adaplene may cause some side effects in the beginning. They include- dryness, redness, stinging, scaling and itching etc. If these side effects are severe, inform your doctor. If you are pregnant or plan to get pregnant, you need to tell that to your doctor. For some people it takes time to adjust to the usage of Adaplene. They should use it on alternate day till the skin gets used to the product. Adaplene also increases sensitivity of skin to sun. Use of sunscreen is recommended when you are using Adaplene. Pl. talk to your doctor about any other precautions you need to take.
