What is Differin gel?

The active substance in Differin is adapalene, which has an anti-inflammatory effect reducing soreness and irritation. It is used on the face, chest or back for acne, where the skin has lots of blackheads, spots and pimples. Differin is only absorbed into the body in very small amounts and has little effect, except on the surface of the skin. It also increases the turnover of the skin cells and has possible beneficial effects for the skin.

How to use Differin gel?

Always use Differin exactly as your doctor has told you. You should check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure. Differin is only intended for use in adults and adolescents aged 12 years and over and it is for external use only. Apply at night before going to bed, unless your doctor has told you otherwise.

  • Thoroughly wash the areas to be treated with water. Make sure the skin is clean and dry before using Differin.
  • Put a thin film of the gel with your fingertips on to the affected areas and rub in gently.
  • Do not forget to wash your hands afterwards.
  • How long you will have to use Differin will depend on how quickly your acne or wrinkles improve.
