Why I prescribe Adapalene
“Adapalene contains a product that is indispensable. A key element to the majority of skin concerns. Retinoids work by pushing skin cells to turn over and 'die' more quickly — this leads to the production of 'new skin' at a faster rate. Increased dead skin turnover is vital to the prevention and management of acne, hyperpigmentation or blemishes. They also work as an anti-ageing agent by reducing the break down of collagen — this in turn leads to firmer skin and a reduction in the appearance of wrinkles.
Adapalene is a favourite of mine simply because it’s backed by scientific evidence. The gel formulation means it is better absorbed by the skin and gets to where it needs to be.”
