REVERSE Regimen FAQs

WHAT SHOULD I DO IF MY SKIN BREAKS OUT WHEN USING REVERSE RADIANCE MASK?

At this time, we suggest taking a break from REVERSE Radiance Mask until breakouts are under control.  If these breakouts are acne related, please keep in mind when changing a skincare routine this can trigger an acne breakout. In addition, acne can be triggered by stress, hormonal changes, or even friction such as wearing a hat or helmet.  Bacteria may be introduced by a cellphone or your hands, sweating from exercise or a change in medications or skincare products.  However, if these breakouts are occurring immediately after introducing REVERSE Radiance Mask, this may be more of an irritation, and we recommend discontinuing use.

WHAT SHOULD I DO IF MY SKIN BECOMES IRRITATED WHEN USING REVERSE RADIANCE MASK?

If the skin has become red or feels irritated when using REVERSE Radiance Mask, follow these steps.

  1. Immediately clean off product (with water or a mild cleanser), then rinse, and gently pat the skin dry.
  2. Make a cold compress by placing crushed ice in a resealable bag wrapped within a soft cloth and hold this on the area for 3-5 minutes three times an hour – as tolerated.
  3. If irritation persists, ask your healthcare professional for a recommendation of a usual over the counter treatment on areas of irritation. Use as directed and layer a mild moisturiser if your skin feels dry.
  4. If the skin does not respond to the above protocol after 24 hours, you may wish to see your healthcare professional for an evaluation and ingredient review.

Based on Multi-Step Science, the REVERSE Regimen is a comprehensive twice-daily skincare routine that tackles the appearance of dullness and skin discolouration to reveal noticeably brighter skin and a more even, younger-looking complexion.

WHY IS USING REVERSE RADIANCE MASK IMPORTANT TO MY SKIN?

Sun exposure can result in dullness, uneven skin tone and excessive pigmentation. Over time, the damage progresses, leading to age spots and more stubborn dark marks. Dermatology-inspired and clinically tested, this concentrated Face Mask instantly gives your skin a noticeably smoother texture and radiant glow and visibly evens skin tone over time.

WHY DID RODAN + FIELDS DEVELOP REVERSE RADIANCE MASK?

The Doctors and the team of scientists at Rodan + Fields developed the REVERSE Radiance Mask so users could experience instant benefits and even more results over time AND address additional skin concerns outside of their primary Regimen or boost the results of their existing routine.

The REVERSE Radiance Mask can be paired with the REDEFINE, SOOTHE, UNBLEMISH and SPOTLESS Regimens to address the appearance of dullness, uneven skin tone, or uneven texture or paired with the REVERSE Regimen for even more results.

Can REVERSE Regimen be used on the body?

It’s not just your face that shows the effects of environmental ageing, so there’s no need to stop at your face when applying REVERSE Regimen. REVERSE Regimen can be used on your neck and décolleté. However, be aware that skin is more delicate on the neck and chest, so you may need to ramp up more slowly and use as tolerated.

Waxing and REVERSE Regimen

If you are considering waxing while using REVERSE Regimen, we recommend that you discontinue REVERSE Regimen three days before your waxing and wait three days before continuing the Regimen after waxing. REVERSE Regimen contains Retinol and exfoliators, which may make your skin sensitive and prone to irritation and redness after waxing. It is advisable to test the wax on a small area first.

I’m using REVERSE Brightening and my skin is dry. What should I do?

The REVERSE Brightening Regimen brightens with Kojic Acid and Bearberry Extract, and also exfoliates skin with Alpha-hydroxy Acids to gently remove dulling, dead skin cells for a smooth, fresh complexion. This assists in lifting the darkness off the skin to help rapidly develop brighter skin. If skin is feeling dry, simply add a moisturizer over the Dual Active Brightening Complex.

The Brightening Regimen does not contain a moisturizer so that it can be used by all skin types. If the skin is normal to dry, simply layer a moisturizer over the Dual Intensive Brightening Complex. We suggest either the SOOTHE Sensitive Skin Treatment or SOOTHE Moisture Replenishing Cream.

 

REVERSE Regimen Best Tips

1. Read the entire REVERSE Regimen brochure and take advantage of the concise information, directions and tips regarding your skin. REVERSE products address the appearance of brown spots, dullness and discolouration.
2. REVERSE Regimen should be introduced slowly over the first three weeks of use, using a gentle cleanser, toner, moisturiser and sunscreen when not using the Regimen.
3. Avoid other forms of exfoliation such as scrubs, peels, mechanical brushes, wash cloths, professional treatments and moisturisers with Retinol or AHAs as you ramp up to twice a day.
4. Be gentle and allow the products to do the work. Just use the fingertips to gently massage the REVERSE Deep Exfoliating Wash evenly over the face. Allow exfoliators to buff off dulling, dry dead skin cells.
5. Avoid the sun and seek shade and re-apply sunscreen every two hours.
6. If skin begins to feel dry, layer a moisturiser over the REVERSE Dual Active Brightening Complex.
7. Once you have ramped up to using REVERSE products twice daily, you may add in the REDEFINE AMP MD Derma-Roller as directed and tolerated.

Can I use REVERSE Regimen if I am taking a sunny holiday?

We suggest to take a break from using REVERSE Regimen while on holiday. It can be more difficult to practise sun avoidance so be sure to use your sunscreen every two hours, and wear a large brimmed hat, sunglasses and seek shade. Perhaps you can switch to REDEFINE Regimen.

Do your best to avoid new sun damage, and simply begin REVERSE Regimen again when you return from holiday.

Can I use a self tanner while on REVERSE Regimen?

We are pleased to hear that you are being “sun-smart” by using self-tanning products and avoiding the sun which can cause pigmentation problems and other skin damage.

Self-tanning products for face/body may be used along with REVERSE Regimen. However, the exfoliators in our REVERSE Deep Exfoliating Wash and brightening ingredients may fade your self-tanner more quickly requiring that the self-tanning lotion be applied more frequently.

How do I use REVERSE Regimen and REDEFINE AMP MD System?

Once you have built up to twice-a-day usage of REVERSE Regimen, you may begin using REDEFINE AMP MD Derma-Roller in the evening after Steps 1 and 2 of REVERSE Regimen. After rolling, follow with REVERSE Dual Active Brightening Complex.

REDEFINE Intensive Renewing Serum is optional when using the REVERSE Regimen because REVERSE Dual Active Brightening Complex already contains Retinol which helps to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

Within two weeks of using REVERSE Regimen and AMP MD Derma-Roller, more than 80% of the participants saw better results in overall skin appearance, brightness, texture and firmness. REVERSE Dual Active Brightening Complex contains a healthy dose of Retinol, which helps to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

If you are also concerned about the visible signs of ageing, the peptides in REDEFINE Intensive Renewing Serum can help. Layer it over REVERSE Dual Active Brightening Complex.

What products can I use on the off times while I ramp up with REVERSE Brightening Regimen?

We recommend that you use mild cleansers, moisturizers and sunscreens as you ramp up to using the REVERSE Brightening Regimen twice a day. Avoid other products containing Retinols, Alpha-hydroxy Acids such as Glycolic, or any scrubs and mechanical brushes, as these can result in irritation. The SOOTHE Regimen is a good option.

Can REVERSE Brightening Regimen be used on the neck and décolletage?

It’s not just your face that shows the effects of environmental aging, so don’t stop at your neck when applying the REVERSE Brightening Regimen. Make sure to continue onto your décolletage to help reveal brighter skin. However, be aware that the skin is more delicate in areas such as the neck and décolletage, so you may need to reduce the frequency of use.

Can I still suntan or use a tanning bed while using REVERSE Brightening Regimen?

Regardless of your skin type or concern, we strongly advise against the practice of sun tanning or using a tanning bed. Both are known to increase the risk of skin cancer and premature aging of the skin. When attempting to reduce the appearance of dull skin with the REVERSE Brightening Regimen, it is especially important to apply and reapply REVERSE Broad Spectrum SPF 50+ Sunscreen as directed. For streak-free, sunless color, we recommend ESSENTIALS Foaming Sunless Tan.

Why does REVERSE Dual Active Brightening Complex have two different tubes: Vitamin C and Retinol formula?

Vitamin C and Retinol are highly effective brightening ingredients. However, their activity makes each ingredient tricky to work with on its own, and virtually impossible to incorporate them together into the same formulation. We created REVERSE Dual Active Brightening Complex featuring a Vitamin C formula in one tube and a stable Retinol formula in a separate tube. Mixing these two formulations together immediately before application ensures optimal skin brightening activity. The results are well worth removing the extra cap as Retinol also helps to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

I have just a few dark marks. Can I just treat the spots with REVERSE Regimen?

Visible brown spots on the skin’s surface indicate more damage below. We developed REVERSE Regimen to be a full-face solution to address both the visible signs of sun damage as well as less visible signs. In addition, using skin brightening products over the entire face avoids the “halo effect,” white rings around brown spots, resulting from only applying the products on the spots that you see.

Does REVERSE Regimen permanently fade brown spots?

REVERSE Regimen is a brightening regimen to address the overall appearance of dullness, brown spots and discolouration. It does not fade or lighten brown spots. Nonetheless, REVERSE Regimen will help with your skin’s appearance. After using REVERSE Regimen and obtaining the desired visible results, if you are extremely diligent about using a sunscreen and limiting exposure to sun, you should be able to maintain your visible results. However, understand that a single day of unprotected sun exposure can virtually undo months of hard work. Apply sunscreen every day and reapply it every two hours when exposed to sunlight. If you begin to see dull skin developing, return to using the REVERSE Regimen.

Can I use REDEFINE AMP MD Derma-Roller with REVERSE Regimen?

Yes. Once you have built up to twice-a-day usage of REVERSE Regimen, you may begin using REDEFINE AMP MD Derma-Roller in the evening after Steps 1 and 2 of REVERSE Regimen. After rolling, follow with Step 3 of REVERSE Regimen. REDEFINE Intensive Renewing Serum is optional when using REVERSE Regimen because Step 3 already contains Retinol, which helps to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

Do I need to follow every step in REVERSE Regimen to get results?

For best results use the complete REVERSE Regimen as directed. Each step of REVERSE Regimen builds upon the previous step to address the appearance of brown spots, dullness and discolouration. Used in combination, the formulations provide exfoliation, skin brightening and sun protection. Skipping any step could hinder achieving maximum results.

When can I expect to see results from REVERSE Regimen?

In a clinical study, after 8 weeks of use, the percentage of participants using REVERSE Regimen reported seeing an improvement in the appearance of *:

• 92% brightness
• 92% smoother skin texture
• 84% brown spots
• 76% even skin tone

Using REDEFINE AMP MD System with REVERSE Regimen

REVERSE Dual Active Brightening Complex contains a combination of Vitamin C and Retinol formulations to enhance brightening of the skin while diminishing the look of fine lines and wrinkles. However, if you are also concerned about the visible signs of ageing, the peptides in REDEFINE Intensive Renewing Serum can help.

Incorporate REDEFINE Intensive Renewing Serum after REVERSE Intensive Brightening Toner and before REVERSE Dual Active Brightening Complex every other evening and increase to every night as tolerated.
