How Does It Work?

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