What to expect
When using Adapalene for wrinkles and fine lines, patience and consistency is key.
On average, it takes 6-12 months to see visible improvements in wrinkles, but some people see improvement as early as 3 months. Improvements in skin vitality, tone, and texture are often visible much sooner.
Adapalene can cause increased skin sensitivity and dryness, particularly in the first few weeks of use. To help minimize these side effects, we recommend starting out using it only once or twice a week, then gradually using it more frequently over the next few weeks.
