Adapalene is a popular ingredient found in many anti-blemish skincare products.

Previously available only by prescription, adapalene is an FDA-approved, dermatologist recommended retinoid specifically used for blemish-prone skin. It attacks breakouts at the source – deep within the pores – to prevent new blemishes from forming and, as a result, restore your skin’s natural texture, tone and glow.

What are topical retinoids?

Retinol is a derivative of Vitamin A and comes in many forms – with many methods of application from creams, gels, serums and more. Topical Retinoids can play an enormous part in mitigating the signs of blemish-prone skin due to their ability to boost cell turnover.

When you have acne, your body has a hard time ridding skin of cellular debris. This occurs because old cells cannot escape pores (along with excess oil and bacteria) – leading to the perfect conditions for acne and blemish-related skin conditions to arise. Topical retinoids help to regulate cell turnover to keep pores clear and address the conditions for acne before they start.

Dr. Alster's Opinion:

"The key to younger looking skin is a good regimen that contains retinol."

What are the benefits of Adapalene?

Compared to other retinoids (tretinoin, tazarotene, alitretinoin and bexarotene – to name a few) adapalene has been shown to exhibit less irritating side effects than other retinoids – making it a great solution for acne. Adapalene also works slightly different than other retinoids in that it may help to reduce chronic inflammation.

Other Benefits: 
• More stable to light and oxygenation 
• Longer life and efficacy due to stability
• Rapid penetration due to low molecular weight
• Addresses acne and blemishes at the source
