What is Differin?

Differin is a gel that is used in the treatment of moderate to severe acne. It contains the active ingredients adapalene.

Adapalene belongs to a group of medicines called retinoids (which includes tretinoin) and helps to reduce inflammation and black and white head formation on the outer layer of the skin. Adapalene is an advanced third generation retinoid which exhibits many of the same effects as previous generation medicines like tretinoin but is often tolerated better.

How do I apply Differin?

Apply a thin layer of gel evenly over the acne affected areas only once daily at bedtime. Do not apply near or to the eyes, lips, nostrils or other sensitive areas. The gel should be applied to clean, dry skin and take care to wash your hands thoroughly before and after use.

Do not apply to broken skin.

How do I buy Differin?

Differin is a prescription only medicine and cannot be bought over the counter. If you are interested in this medicine, why not fill out our consultation questionnaire? This will be reviewed by one of our expert prescibers who will advise if this medicine is suitable and safe for you.

How long does it take to see results?

As with all medicines applied to the skin in the treatment of acne, you may not see results for up to eight weeks. It is important to be consistent in your application of this gel in order for it to work properly.

Is there anybody who cannot use Differin?

Differin is not suitable for those with a hypersensitivity to any of the ingredients. Do not use in pregnancy. Avoid sunlight and UV lamps while using this medicine. Do not use other acne products containing retinoids or benzoyl peroxide while using this medicine or products that are irritating, drying or exfoliating to the skin.

Side Effects

Some people can experience stinging sensation, dryness, scaling and burning sensitivity when they first use this medicine. This presents worst during the first week of use and then tends to settle.

Patient Information Leaflet

Always read the patient information leaflet before commencing treatment. Patient information can be found here.
