The Function Of Clindamycin In Beauty Products?
Hello, I want to ask what is the function of the clindamycin phosphate content u0026amp; Adapalene? I once went to a dermatologist to get rid of pimples and their scars. The doctor gave me the drug Mediklin (containing 1.2% clindamycin phosphate) for acne u0026amp; Evalent (containing 0.1% Adapalene) for acne scars. I have been using this medicine for a long time, every night I use evalent, and the next morning the acne scars disappear But after washing your face, then the red scars appear again and if it is dried then often there is like peeling skin but very, very small. Acne on my face is not very bad, only 1-2 but red / brown scar. Please explain, thank you.
Hello William good evening, thanks for the question
Clindamycin is a type of antibiotic that is commonly used in cases of acne vulgaris or acne. While adapalene is classified into topical retinoids, which are vitamin A derivatives which are widely used for the treatment of acne. Retinoids work as comedolytic agents (destroying comedones that cause acne) by suppressing the growth of microcontoments. Retinoids can also destroy pre-existing blackheads. Retinoids are also known to have anti-inflammatory activity and can help penetrate other active substances so that they can work more effectively.
However, retinoids have side effects that cause skin irritation, one of which causes peeling skin complaints. But these side effects are very minimal in this type of retinoid, this adapalene is believed to be the latest generation.
According to research combination of clindamycin with topical retinoids is said to be effective and safe for acne maintenance therapy. If you are still complaining of certain symptoms after regular treatment, you should consult with your dermatologist to assess the treatment response and plan for further treatment.
That's all, hope you can help
