TOPICAL RETINOID ACNE TREATMENT: Prescription-strength acne treatment, now available without a prescription. This once daily topical retinoid helps clear and prevent blackheads, whiteheads, acne blemishes and clogged pores. Dermatologist developed and tested.

Adapalene gel 0.1% is a topical retinoid medication used for the treatment of acne in people 12 years and older. It should only be used one time a day.

  • It may take up to 3 months of daily use for results to appear.
  • Do not use more than one time a day. Applying more than directed will not provide faster or better results, but may worsen skin irritation.
  • When possible, limit sun exposure, including light from tanning beds.
  • When going outdoors, use a sunscreen as labeled. Your skin may be more sensitive while using adapalene gel 0.1%. If you use this product during the day, allow it to dry before applying sunscreen.
  • Use of a moisturizer may help decrease dryness and other signs of irritation. Avoid products containing alpha hydroxy or glycolic acids which may worsen irritation.
  • Adapalene gel 0.1% is not a spot treatment and should not be used to treat a single pimple.


  • Recommended for:
    • Acne blemishes
    • Blackheads and whiteheads

    Benefits

    • Helps clear blackheads, whiteheads, acne blemishes & clogged pores
    • Adapalene gel 0.1% helps prevent new acne from forming
    • Prescription-strength topical retinoid

    Directions

    • Gently clean the affected areas using a mild (non-irritating) cleanser and pat dry.
    • Apply adapalene gel 0.1% as a thin layer to the affected areas of the skin only one time a day. For example, if you get acne on the face, clean, dry and apply the product to the entire face.
    • Apply this product only one time a day in the evening and try to apply the product at the same time each day.
    • 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 tolerance for daily use.
    • Adapalene gel 0.1% is not a spot treatment and should not be used to treat a single pimple.
    • If pregnant or breast-feeding, ask a doctor before use.
    • Some other retinoid drugs have been shown to cause birth defects. There is no specific evidence that adapalene gel 0.1% causes birth defects in humans when used topically as directed.
