Differin XP Gel Description

Differin XP Gel is a retinoid medication containing the active ingredient Adapalene. This drug works like vitamin A to help repair damaged skin, and is often prescribed for adults or adolescents with chronic acne. It is delivered through a topical gel, and should be applied directly to any affected areas. It may take four to eight weeks to see an improvement in acne symptoms. You will need a valid prescription to buy Differin XP Gel.

How Differin XP Gel Works on Your Skin

Adapalene is the active ingredient in Differin XP Gel and when applied as directed, it reduces the growth of the keratin surface skin cells that can plug up your pores. This helps to unblock the pores and sebaceous glands (glands which secrete oil called sebum) and as a result the sebum can escape. This reduces the formation of blackheads. Differin XP Gel also increases the turnover of skin cells to aid the natural exfoliation of the outer layers of skin.

Conditions Treated by Differin XP Gel

Your doctor may recommend Differin XP Gel if you have acne symptoms like redness, swelling, and other unsightly blemishes. These symptoms usually develop because of inflammation-causing bacteria, which become trapped in pores that are blocked by dirt and oils. Differin XP Gel will reduce the harmful inflammation and prevent clogged pores so that your skin can heal itself more rapidly.

Before You Apply Differin XP Gel

Be sure to tell your doctor whether you are currently using any alpha hydroxy or glycolic acid medications before you start treatment with Differin XP Gel. You should advise your doctor if you have eczema, as the medication may worsen eczema-affected skin. Make-up can be applied after Differin X Gel has been absorbed into your skin.

Warnings for Differin XP Gel

Certain precautions should be taken during the course of treatment with Differin XP Gel for safety and maximum results. Patients should minimize exposure to sun while undergoing treatment with Differin XP Gel as you may be more sensitive to the harmful UV rays. You should avoid chemical depilatories, waxing, electrolysis, and hair removal in the area where Differin XP Gel is being applied. Failure to follow these instructions may result in lowered efficacy and more severe side effects.
