About Adaclene Gel: Adaclene Gel (Adapalene) is a medicine prescribed to patients suffering from acne vulgaris. This drug has been found effective in skin exfoliation and reduction of the formation of spots. The active ingredient in this medicinal gel is vitamin A, which acts during treatment as a comedolytic agent. When applied, the medicine works on the cells of the outer skin (keratinocytes), and this process inhibits differentiated growth or the occurrence of abnormal spots. This in turn opens up skin pores as the clogs are unblocked through skin proliferation and consequently reducing the amount of sebum accumulating on the skin.
How to use Adaclene Gel
Adaclene Gel (Adapalene) is for external use only and should not be ingested. Your doctor will decide on how frequent you will need to apply the gel. Your physician will take you through on how to apply the gel and in case you have any queries, you can confirm from them or by reading the instructions leaflet provided by the gel. Wash your hands and the affected area thoroughly before application and leave them to dry naturally. Take necessary precautions to ensure that the gel does not get to the eyes, mouth or nose. Apply a small amount as instructed and massage a thin film to the affected area as many times as indicated.
