Adapen Gel containing the active ingredient adapalene is considered a topical retinoid type of medication. It is similar to vitamin A in which it helps unblock pores and sebaceous glands to reduce the formation of blackheads and spots.
The medication also assists in the turnover of the skin cells to aid the natural exfoliation of the outer layers of skin. The gel can be used to decrease the number and severity of acne as well as promoting the quick healing of pimples that do develop but cannot be used to cure the condition.
