Acne affects the oil glands and hair follicles within the skin, usually on the face but sometimes on other areas of the body too such as the neck and back. The pores, which connect to oil glands produce sebum, a substance which carries dead skin cells to the skin’s surface, but sometimes the oil and skin cells plug the pore instead. The bacteria, which usually live harmlessly on the skin contaminate the plugged follicle and this can cause an infection which develops into acne. There are a number of different forms that this infection manifests itself as including papule, pustules, cysts and nodules but all fall under the term Acne.
Due to the infection being the main cause of acne, it is crucial you treat it as you would any other infection, with a medication such as Differin which works to clear the acne and stop further development of spots, whilst healing and decreasing any chance of scarring.
Differin Gel is used to treat symptoms of acne by stopping any further development of spots while also preventing any possible scarring.
Yes, you require a prescription to purchase Differin Gel. After completing a short online questionnaire on our website you will be given a prescription to allow you to purchase Differin Gel.
The active ingredient in Differin Gel is adapalene. This anti-inflammatory ingredient is effective at fighting acne without causing any further damage to the skin.
The active ingredient, adapalene, allows for skin cells to begin naturally exfoliating. This unclogs pores allowing any build up such as oil to be released out of its cells.
Prior to using Differin Gel you should wash your face with a mild cleanser and dry thoroughly. After your skin is completely dry you should apply a thin even layer of Differin Gel to infected areas. The gel should not be applied around the lips or nostrils.
It is advised to use Differin Gel once in the evening before going to bed. However depending on the severity of your infection you may be advised to use it up to twice a day.
The gel usually reduces symptoms of acne within 1-2 weeks of use. However depending on the severity of the infection it can take up to 2 months for acne to clear up.
It is advised to use a gentle moisturiser after using Differin Gel. you should avoid using any harsh products for the length of the treatment.
While using Differin Gel you should avoid using the following:
After using Differin Gel your skin becomes more sensitive to the sun. You should always use sunscreen before going into the sun for maximum protection. You should also avoid using tanning beds and salons.
While using Differin Gel you should avoid harsh hair removal processes such as waxing and chemical depilatories.
Pregnant or breastfeeding should refrain from using Differin Gel as there is a possibility of it causing harm to the baby.
You should consult with a GP or pharmacist before using Differin Gel if you suffer from other skin conditions such as eczema.
By filling in our short medical questionnaire, our doctors can ascertain whether Differin
gel is the most appropriate treatment for your acne. This will be based on a number of factors including the severity of the infection and other medications you have tried or are currently taking. Once the doctor has given you a prescription, you can purchase your treatment online without having to visit your GP or chemist to pick up your medication. Instead, it will be sent directly to your address.
Differin is an effective treatment for reducing inflammation making it especially beneficial for anyone suffering from black or whiteheads as well as pustules.
In fact adapalene, the active ingredient in Differin is a retinoid which has been found to have a number of benefits which acne fighting ingredients in other products, such as benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid, cannot claim to offer such as:
Differin has been proven to prevent acne from forming if used daily as recommended, and it is oil free meaning your face will not be slick or sticky. It also helps to restore your skin’s natural texture and tone by fighting acne deep down within the pores where the infection starts.
For anyone who has struggled to find an effective acne treatment Differin may be the next best step to take as it has been found to be very well tolerated when compared to other topical gels and creams containing retinoids. It is also a good option for people who struggle to take medication orally.
Differin contains the active ingredient adapalene, a retinoid medicine which is derived from vitamin A.
The inactive ingredients are carbomer 940, poloxamer 182, propylene glycol (E1520), disodium edetate, Phenoxyethanol, methyl para-hydroxybenzoate (E218), sodium hydroxide and purified water.
Adapalene is for topical use only and not to be swallowed. Wash your hands prior to use followed by washing your face using a mild cleanser and patting the skin dry. Using the fingertips, apply a thin layer of Differin gel to the affected area or areas. Do not apply to the inside of your lips or inside the nose or mouth.
Typically you would use it once daily in the evening, though follow the guidance given to you by your doctor. Using more gel than required or for longer than recommended will not make the medication work more quickly and may result in irritating or painful side effects.
The active ingredient in Differin increases the turn over of skin cells creating a natural exfoliation type process to the surface layer. This unblocks pores and the sebaceous glands which produce the oil allowing this sebum (oil) to be released. This helps to decrease blackheads and oiliness. Adapalene also gives an anti-inflammatory effect too, lowering redness, heat and swelling.
Your doctor at Click Pharmacy or GP will let you know the amount of time you should use Differin. It will begin to work from the first application, but whereas some people will see the benefits after one to two weeks, others may find it takes a month or two.
For the first few weeks, it may feel that your skin is appearing to get worse, but this is not the case. During this time, the medication is dealing with the issues under the surface so be patient and continue to use your gel for as long as recommended to ensure you get the full benefit of it
As with any medication, some patients may experience side effects whereas others may not.
The most common side effects of Differin include irritation, redness and dryness to the area of application as well as a slight burning sensation. These tend to be due to your skin getting used to the medication and can ease after a couple of weeks as it begins to tolerate it.
If you experience major irritation then speak to your doctor who may recommend you apply it less often or take a break from it.
Make sure you tell your doctor about any other medications you are taking or using to ensure they will not interfere with one another or make one or both of them less effective or even dangerous.
There are certain products which are to be avoided whilst using Differin:
Due to the medication potentially causing sensitivity to UV light it is important you avoid spending an excessive amount of time in the sun and apply a block every day to avoid irritation and burning.
Like all medication, after using Differin Gel you may experience a number of side effects. Possible side effects include:
These side effects should decrease as you continue to use Differin Gel. If any of these side effects worsen, you should stop using Differin Gel and speak to a GP or pharmacist.
