How Does Claravis Work?

Claravis is a retinoid, which means it is similar to vitamin A. It works by affecting the sebaceous glands, which produce sebum (an oily substance). Claravis works by reducing the size of the sebaceous glands and decreasing sebum production.
 
The medication also corrects abnormal keratinization, which contributes to acne by causing a buildup of cells within hair follicles. It is not entirely clear why Claravis causes such long-lasting anti-acne effects.
