How To Use
Apply a pea sized amount all over the face after cleansing. Effaclar Adapalene is not a spot treatment and should not be used to treat a single pimple. Follow with a moisturizer to help prevent dryness and irritation. Apply sunscreen in the morning and when outdoors to protect your skin against sensitivity to the sun.
What To Expect
Results can be seen anywhere from 2-12 weeks. During the early weeks of use, your acne may appear to worsen before it improves (this is normal!). Common side effects of adapalene treatments may occur within the first few weeks including dryness, redness, irritation and burning/stinging. Use a gentle cleanser and moisturizer from La Roche-Posay’s Toleriane line for sensitive skin to help with dryness and irritation.
Dermatologists often recommend using adapalene in the evening after cleansing. Continue use even once your skin has cleared to maintain results overtime. If you have sensitive skin, begin by using the product 2-3 times a week and then gradually increase usage until you have built up a tolerance for daily use.
Retinoid vs. Retinol
Retinoid is a general term for a Vitamin A derivative. Both Retinol and adapalene are considered retinoids – meaning they are both derived from Vitamin A. Retinol is a gentle retinoid widely available over the counter and often used in anti-aging creams or serums. Adapalene is a prescription-strength retinoid, now available without a prescription, recommended by dermatologists for the treatment of acne. Adapalene is a more potent derivative of Vitamin A – making it very effective.
