Thanks for your query.

I am medical doctor, an associate in Department of Dermatology, working with an experienced Dermatologist. I answer on his behalf.

Apply ADAPALENE ointment twice daily. This contains a derivative of Vit A which helps in removal or scars and also pimples. This maintains the health of the skin by promoting healthy regeneration.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for writing back.

Adapalene is a third-generation topical retinoid primarily used in the treatment of mild-moderate acne and is also used (off-label) to treat keratosis pilaris, scars as well as other skin conditions.


It selectively binds to the nuclear retinoic acid receptor (RAR) . This selective binding affinity may play a role in adapalene’s greater inhibition of keratinocyte differentiation prventing scars, acnes etc

Hope, I answered your query.
