Will Active Hydration Body Replenish work if I live in a dry climate?

Yes, those in a dry climate will see and feel the immediate benefits of ENHANCEMENTS Active Hydration Body Replenish.  Regardless of the climate, the 3D3P Molecular Matrix draws and locks in moisture from the atmosphere, forming a water reservoir on the skin’s surface, allowing it to take in hydration as needed.  If fact, we tested the 3D3P technology in the desert of Las Vegas during R+F Convention 2016 on more than 4200 people of different ages, ethnicities and with varying skin concerns. Even in those extreme conditions, 96% of them saw an immediate increase in their moisture level.

Do I need Active Hydration Body Replenish if I live in a humid climate?

Living in a humid climate does not mean that your skin is hydrated.  Active Hydration Body Replenish was formulated to work with all skin types regardless of climate with the right kind and right level of oil-free hydration.  R+F’s proprietary 3D3P Molecular Matrix draws and locks in moisture from the atmosphere, forming a water reservoir on the skin’s surface, allowing it to take in hydration as needed.  Skin will feel and look smoother, softer and more radiant, and not greasy or oily.

Why is Hydration important to my skin?

Proper hydration should be the cornerstone of any skincare routine.  One of the culprits of aging skin is dryness.  Whether you experience dryness due to hormonal changes, the environment or age, it can make skin look older.  In fact, research shows that dry skin actually behaves like older skin.  As the outer surface becomes dry, cell turnover reduces which results in skin that is more prone to sensitivity, lines and wrinkles, and is less receptive to skincare products.  As skin ages, it requires more hydration to perform optimally, and can become more difficult for skin to take in hydration or other skincare ingredients.

How does it fit into the Rodan+Fields philosophy?

Multi-Med Therapy is based on delivering the right ingredients, in the right formulations, in the right order to deliver visibly transformative results.  ENHANCEMENTS Active Hydration Body Replenish was formulated with proprietary technology to pull and hold water onto the skin, natural moisturizers and conditioners to lock it in and further help skin in challenging environmental conditions and peptides to help smooth lines and texture for younger-looking skin.  When used with your other R+F products such as Micro-Dermabrasion Paste, it enhances your Multi-Med Therapy experience.

How do I know if I should use ENHANCEMENTS Active Hydration Body Replenish?

Whether on your face or body, your skin experiences daily challenges from external assault such as extreme weather, UV exposure, indoor heating and air conditioning, and pollution.  And as you age, skin gets dry and dehydrated at a more rapid rate since cell turnover slows down, which causes dead skin cells to build up, making skin look and feel older.  Use ENHANCEMENTS Active Hydration Body Replenish daily to reduce dull-looking skin in the winter, or dry and flaky skin in the summer.  Notice the immediate difference after just one use.

Why should I purchase this product (versus others)?

Active Hydration Body Replenish is not like any other product. This formula includes 3D3P Molecular Matrix – our proprietary, one-of-a-kind structure – invented in our R+F lab.  We created a new molecule to address hydration in a different way, binding Glycerin to Hyaluronic Acid and attracting hydration to the skin throughout the day as needed.  Our technology allows us to deliver a high dose of 30% Glycerin versus other formulas that only contain 1-3%, making this body cream more effective.

Can you use ENHANCEMENTS Active Hydration Body Replenish on your face?

No.  Although the same unique 3D3P Molecular Matrix found in two of our top selling products Active Hydration Serum and Bright Eye Complex is found in Active Hydration Body Replenish, Body Replenish was designed specifically for the skin on the body, which has unique needs.  Because of slower cell turnover, skin on the body skin is even more prone to dryness, dullness and rough patches than your complexion.

 

What is the technology in Active Hydration Body Replenish?

Active Hydration Body Replenish is powered by Rodan + Field’s proprietary 3D3P Molecular Matrix that draws in moisture from the atmosphere and locks it onto your skin.  Active Hydration Body Replenish adjusts to your skin’s needs, delivering hydration to areas that need it most, resulting in younger-looking, younger-acting skin that continues to look healthier over time.

When can I expect to see results from Active Hydration Body Replenish?

By using Active Hydration Body Replenish you can expect to immediately experience softer, smoother-looking skin that stays hydrated all day.  In a one-week consumer study, 90% of participants reported that their skin felt instantly softer after using Active Hydration Body Replenish and 89% reported that their skin felt immediately nourished.*

*Based on a one-week U.S. consumer study. Results may vary depending on multiple factors: age, gender, skin type and condition, concomitant products used, health history, location, lifestyle and diet. 

What results should I expect with Active Hydration Body Replenish?

With daily usage, you skin will feel softer, smoother, more nourished and hydrated.  In fact, a clinical study revealed that Active Hydration Body Replenish more than doubles your skin’s hydration level in just 4 weeks.*

Additionally, the study found that after four weeks:

  • 100% of participants had improvement in overall healthy skin appearance
  • 97% of participants had improvement in skin radiance
  • 94% of participants had improvement in the look of crepiness

*Based on a four-week U.S. clinical and consumer study. Results may vary depending on multiple factors: age, gender, skin type and condition, concomitant products used, health history, location, lifestyle and diet. 

How did ENHANCEMENTS Active Hydration Body Replenish address skin dryness in a new way?

Powerful water magnets quench dryness by adding hydration to the skin’s surface.  The best ingredient to achieve this is Glycerin.  Unfortunately, Glycerin is sticky by nature so most formulas contain only 1-3% Glycerin, making them less effective.  Our Research and Development team created a new molecule to deliver 30% Glycerin in lightweight formula.  Using Active Hydration Body Replenish daily will help skin look softer, smoother, younger, more nourished and radiant.

Why did Rodan+Fields develop ENHANCEMENTS Active Hydration Replenishment?

Our Doctors recognize that besides sunscreen the next priority for getting and keeping great skin is daily hydration — but the right kind of hydration.  As an answer to dry and aging skin on the body, Rodan + Fields Research and Development team developed ENHANCEMENTS Active Hydration Body Replenish.

Assaults to skin include:  Natural aging, hormonal changes, environmental challenges in winter, in summer, when using a sauna, swimming in a pool, playing sports, sweating (salt), or exposure to sun and/or wind with very little protection.  Skin becomes dry, dull, and rough from extreme weather conditions, indoor heating and air conditioning, and pollution. Natural aging processes slows cell turnover, dead skin cells build-up making skin look and act older.

This unique light-weight cream delivers an immediate increase in hydration the first time you apply it and delivers continuous hydration throughout the day. The additional benefits of Jojoba, Coconut Oil, and Shea Butter help lock in hydration while conditioning the skin for lasting benefits over time.

What is Active Hydration Body Replenish?

ENHANCEMENTS Active Hydration Body Replenish is a fast-absorbing, ultra-hydrating daily body cream.  Unlike traditional body products, Active Hydration Body Replenish features R+F’s proprietary 3D3P Molecular Matrix, which continuously draws moisture from the atmosphere and locks it onto your skin, restoring skin to its optimal hydration level.  Additionally, Active Hydration Body Replenish adjusts to your skin’s needs – delivering hydration to areas that need it most — leaving skin feeling softer, smoother, more nourished and hydrated all day.

How and why has the REVERSE Deep Exfoliating Wash changed?

Rodan + Fields strives to do the right thing for both our Customers and the environment.

Regulations announced in 2015 prohibit the use of polyethylene microbeads in cosmetic products. Fortunately, Rodan + Fields proactively worked to update our REVERSE Deep Exfoliating Wash—even before these regulations were passed—to remove polyethylene microbeads while still preserving the exfoliating benefits our customers love. This new formula was phased into both the U.S. and Canadian markets in 2017 before any of these regulations took effect.

These regulations were not in place when the REVERSE Deep Exfoliating Wash was initially developed. Rodan + Fields created the initial formula based on the information and regulations in place at that time.

Should I expect any irritation with REDEFINE Lip Renewing Serum?

It is normal for lips to feel a slight tingle upon application due to the menthol compounds in the REDEFINE Lip Renewing Serum. However, if your lips become red, sensitive and/or irritated, wash the serum off of your lips and discontinue use. If any tingling, itching, irritation and/or redness persists or is not tolerable, discontinue use and seek medical advice.

If the tingling feels uncomfortable to you upon application, then Lip Renewing Serum may not be compatible for you. Rodan + Fields also offers ESSENTIALS Lip Shield to moisturize, condition and soften your lips. It contains our proprietary SHIELDRF Technology to provide broad spectrum SPF 25 protection as well as Peptides to visibly smooth your lips. Lip Shield is a viable replacement for Lip Renewing Serum and can be used with any Regimen or skin type.

Can I use REDEFINE Lip Renewing Serum with ESSENTIALS Lip Shield Broad Spectrum SPF 25?

REDEFINE Lip Renewing Serum is usually applied at night to take advantage of inactivity during sleep and helps lips look and feel softer and smoother and visibly younger. ESSENTIALS Lip Shield is applied in the morning to moisturize, condition and provide sun protection. If you want to use them both in the morning, allow REDEFINE Lip Renewing Serum to fully dry before applying ESSENTIALS Lip Shield.

Why did the REDEFINE Lip Renewing Serum formula need to be changed?

We wanted our Customers to have a more enhanced experience to battle the daily exposure to the change in climates and environmental challenges. While the previous version of Lip Renewing Serum delivered powerful calming and smoothing benefits, the current version contains even more moisturizing ingredients to ensure the lips are in great condition to face the day.

How is new REDEFINE Lip Renewing Serum different from the previous version?

Lip Renewing Serum has been reformulated for an improved consumer experience, while maintaining the same moisturizing and age-defying benefits of the previous formula you know and love. The formula contains the same Peptides but is now fortified with added ingredients such as Shea Butter, Vitamin E and Jojoba Oil to target dryness and the appearance of lip lines. This formula remains compatible with all R+F Regimens and is recommended for nightly use.

Regular users of the Lip Renewing Serum formula will notice that the new formula has a cooling and tingling sensation to feel the potent ingredients at work as well as a more velvety-smooth, matte appearance. The capsules have also been re-engineered with an improved shape and thicker material for easier opening. Please note, the new formula now contains nut ingredients.

What is REDEFINE Lip Renewing Serum?

REDEFINE Lip Renewing Serum is your answer to dry and aging lips. Wake up to softer and smoother looking and feeling lips in just one application. With consistent usage you will notice healthier, more refined and more youthful-looking lips. This nourishing lip serum is specifically formulated with a potent blend of emollient and revitalizing ingredients to achieve and maintain healthy-looking lips. As a bonus we add the proven effects of powerful but gentle Peptides to visibly smooth texture. The refreshing, cooling and tingling sensation reminds you that potent ingredients are hard at work.

How long can I use my AMP MD Derma-Roller before it needs to be replaced?

The AMP MD Derma-Roller is constructed with the highest quality micro-exfoliating tips for maximum efficacy. When used nightly, the AMP MD Derma-Roller is designed to last for up to 12 months. If you use your AMP MD for demonstration purposes, you may find that your AMP MD maintains its precision for closer to six to nine months.

My face is red after using REDEFINE Regimen and AMP MD System. Is this normal?

The skin may become red/irritated if your skin is sensitive or if too much pressure is applied when using the AMP MD Derma-Roller. We recommend lessening the pressure you apply, and rolling slowly across your skin using longer sweeping lines. Do not pivot or change direction without lifting the Roller off the face. The AMP MD Derma-Roller is not recommended for use on very sensitive skin. Sensitive skin, by definition, has a compromised barrier and could benefit from skin protectant ingredients such as dimethicone and allantoin, as found in SOOTHE Sensitive Skin Treatment.

Can I use REDEFINE AMP MD System in the morning?

For best results, we recommend you use the REDEFINE AMP MD System in the evening because sleeping increases the receptivity of its beneficial ingredients. In the morning, always use sunscreen because the Retinal in our REDEFINE Intensive Renewing Serum may increase photo-sensitivity. Also, sun exposure diminishes the efficacy of Retinal.

Can I use REDEFINE AMP MD System with SOOTHE Regimen?

We do not recommend you use the AMP MD System with SOOTHE Regimen.

However, after using SOOTHE Regimen for two to four weeks, you can patch test Intensive Renewing Serum after SOOTHE Sensitive Skin Treatment (Step 2) as part of your evening Regimen and begin using it twice a week, increasing to every night as tolerated. And, of course, a broad spectrum sunscreen is the most important weapon in your anti-aging arsenal. SOOTHE Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 is optimally formulated to protect sensitive skin from accelerated aging due to the sun.

Can I use REDEFINE AMP MD System with UNBLEMISH Regimen?

We do not recommend you use the AMP MD System with UNBLEMISH Regimen.

However, after using UNBLEMISH Regimen for four weeks, you can patch test REDEFINE Intensive Renewing Serum in the evening, in place of UNBLEMISH Dual Intensive Treatment (Step 3) in the Regimen and begin using it three nights a week in place of UNBLEMISH Dual Intensive Treatment (Step 3) increasing to every night as tolerated. And, of course, a broad spectrum sunscreen is the most important weapon in your anti-aging arsenal. UNBLEMISH Oil Control Lotion Broad Spectrum SPF 20 is formulated to protect acne-prone skin against UV rays with its lightweight formula.

Can I use REDEFINE AMP MD System if I’m pregnant or nursing?

We recommend that a woman who is pregnant or nursing consult with her doctor about her current products and/or the use of cosmetic tools or before making any changes regarding her skincare routine. Providing the U.S. ingredient list or Canada ingredient list will help inform the doctor.

Can I use REDEFINE AMP MD System if I’m taking prescription medications?

If you are taking prescription medications we always recommend that you consult your doctor regarding your skincare routine. This is as simple as sending the U.S. ingredient list or Canada ingredient list to your healthcare provider for review.

Can I use the REDEFINE AMP MD System on my neck and décolletage?

Yes, these areas show the signs of aging as well: loss of firmness, increased pore size and visible fine lines and wrinkles. Use the REDEFINE AMP MD System as directed and be aware that the neck and décolleté area may be more sensitive than other areas. We recommend that you follow directions and use as tolerated.

My skin is sensitive, but I am concerned about aging skin. Can I use REDEFINE AMP MD System?

The AMP MD Derma-Roller is not recommended for use on very sensitive skin. Sensitive skin, by definition, has a compromised barrier and needs to be strengthened with the OTC-approved skin protectant ingredients dimethicone and allantoin, as found in SOOTHE Sensitive Skin Treatment.

However, after using SOOTHE Regimen for two to four weeks, you can patch test Intensive Renewing Serum after SOOTHE Sensitive Skin Treatment (Step 2) as part of your evening Regimen and begin using it twice a week, increasing to every night as tolerated. And, of course, a broad spectrum sunscreen is the most important weapon in your anti-aging arsenal. SOOTHE Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 is optimally formulated to protect sensitive skin from accelerated aging due to the sun.

Can I still use the old purification tablets and cleansing vial with the new AMP MD Derma-Roller?

The purification tablet formula has not changed and any tablets can be used to clean either AMP MD Design. The new AMP MD Derma-Roller is designed to be used only with the new cleansing container which features a custom twist lock attachment compatible only with the new AMP MD Roller design. The new cleansing container does come as part of the new AMP MD System so no additional accessories must be purchased.

Is Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex safe for contact wearers?

Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex has been tested by ophthalmologists and found to be safe for use around the eye and while wearing contacts.

Can I still use my old products, REDEFINE Night Renewing Serum and AMP MD Derma-Roller?

REDEFINE Night Renewing Serum and the original AMP MD Derma-Roller continue to be excellent, results-driven products. Customers should feel confident to continue using these products but we do recommend that the AMP MD Roller be replaced every 12 months when using nightly.

How does REDEFINE AMP MD System work?

The patent-pending AMP MD System for firmer-looking skin includes the non-invasive AMP MD Derma-Roller and REDEFINE Intensive Renewing Serum. This system is clinically shown to safely and effectively amp up your daily skincare routine for a firmer, more youthful appearance.

Please read the REDEFINE AMP MD System usage notes before using the AMP MD System. It contains usage instructions for best results.

When can I expect to see results from REDEFINE AMP MD System?

REDEFINE Regimen and AMP MD System are clinically proven to help skin appear firmer and make lines and wrinkles less noticeable for a more luminous and refined appearance after four weeks of use, and those results continue to improve with continued use.

In an eight week independent clinical study, participants using REDEFINE Regimen and AMP MD System achieved the following results:

  • 91% of participants experienced an improvement in visible firmness
  • 91% of participants experienced an improvement in the appearance of lines and wrinkles
  • 91% of participants experienced an improvement in even looking skin tone
  • 83% of participants experienced an improvement in the appearance of skin texture

How long should I use the AMP MD System?

Since we are all aging all the time, Dr. Katie Rodan and Dr. Kathy Fields developed REDEFINE Regimen and AMP MD System as skincare for life. Continue to use REDEFINE Regimen and AMP MD System to help prevent the appearance of lines and wrinkles and loss of firmness.

How do I use Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex with REDEFINE ACUTE CARE?

Use Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex in the morning and evening when you are not using the ACUTE CARE patches. On the evenings that you use the REDEFINE ACUTE CARE patches remember that your skin must be completely clean and dry before applying it. There cannot be any leave-on products underneath the ACUTE CARE, including Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex.

How is the new AMP MD Derma-Roller different from the original version?

The new AMP MD Derma-Roller has been completely re-engineered to feature a sleek, ergonomic handle for improved control and an ultra-smooth glide. The micro-exfoliating tips are still the same length and are constructed of high-quality, laser-cut stainless steel. A dual-purpose cleansing and storage container and convenient snap-on cap make maintenance a breeze.

Can I use Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex if I’m pregnant or nursing?

We recommend that a woman who is pregnant or nursing consult with her doctor about her current products and/or the use of cosmetic tools, or before making any changes regarding her skincare routine. Providing the U.S. ingredient list or Canada ingredient list will help inform the doctor.

Is one eye product better than the other?

Neither eye product is better than the other—the product you choose should be based on what’s best for your individual skincare needs. To find out which eye product is best for you or your Customer, visit the Rodan + Fields U.S. Solution Tool or Canada Solution Tool.

What if I have multiple eye area concerns? Can I use both Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex and REDEFINE Multi-Function Eye Cream products?

Yes, if you have multiple eye area concerns, for example, both dark circles and crow’s feet, you can incorporate REDEFINE Multi-Function Eye Cream and Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex into your skincare routine.

Anyone concerned with both aging and stressed eyes can use both products. Either apply Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex in the morning and REDEFINE Multi-Function Eye Cream at night, or apply Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex and follow with a layer of REDEFINE Multi-Function Eye Cream.

How do I use Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex with Active Hydration Serum?

Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex is specifically formulated to help with the appearance of dark circles and puffiness around the eye area while Active Hydration Serum is formulated for the rest of your face. If you use both products on their specified areas, you can maximize the benefits of R+F’s proprietary 3D3P Molecular Matrix technology.

To use the products together, after cleansing and toning (or after Step 1 of the SOOTHE Regimen) apply Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex as directed beneath the eyes over the orbital bone ridge on the lower lid and towards the eye but staying away from the lashes. Next, apply Active Hydration Serum over the face and onto the orbital bone. Follow with the remaining steps of your Regimen.

Why isn’t Australia getting Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex?

R+F is thrilled to have launched into the Australian market in September 2017. We are focused on extending our brand DNA and business into this new market with our Multi-Step Science skincare philosophy and focusing on our core Regimens.

Further innovation, including the new AMP MD System and Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex, will be introduced at a later time.

Why is it important to use an eye product?

Your eyes are the first place to show stress and fatigue. This is because the delicate area around the eye is the thinnest skin on your face and lacks sebaceous glands that protect this skin. The more fragile, dehydrated and thinner this skin is, the more it shows signs of tiredness since it is under constant exertion and exposure to the elements.
Dark circles, puffiness and ‘tired eyes’ inspired us to answer those needs with Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex.

What is the difference between Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex and REDEFINE Multi-Function Eye Cream?

Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex and REDEFINE Multi-Function Eye Cream feature different key ingredients and are specially formulated to address different eye area concerns.

  • Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex targets the visible signs of stress and fatigue around the eyes, including the appearance of dark under-eye circles and puffiness. The product features R+F’s proprietary 3D3P Molecular Matrix, phytonutrients, caffeine and illuminating brighteners.
  • REDEFINE Multi-Function Eye Cream targets the visible signs of aging around the eyes, including the appearance of crow’s feet and fine lines. The formula features powerful Peptides, enriching moisturizers and optical brighteners.

How do I know which product (REDEFINE Multi-Function Eye Cream or Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex) to use or recommend to my customer?

Just like choosing a Rodan + Fields Regimen, choosing an eye product should be based on each individual’s skincare concerns.

  • Customers most concerned with signs of aging around the eyes, including the appearance of crow’s feet and under-eye firmness, should choose REDEFINE Multi-Function Eye Cream.
  • Those most concerned with signs of stress and fatigue around the eyes, including the appearance of dark circles and puffiness, should opt for Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex.
  • Anyone concerned with both aging and stressed eyes can use both products. Either Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex in the morning and REDEFINE Multi-Function Eye Cream at night, or you can first apply Bright Eye Complex followed by a layer of Multi-Function Eye Cream.

How do I use Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex?

Use morning and night for maximum benefits. In the morning, after cleansing and toning the skin, gently apply a tear-drop sized amount of Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex to the under-eye area and allow product to dry prior to applying any additional products.
At night, remove makeup, cleanse and tone the skin then apply Active Hydration Bright eye Complex onto dry skin. Allow it to dry prior to applying any additional products. You may use alone or layer REDEFINE Multi-Function Eye Cream under the eye and over crow’s feet to additionally address the appearance of lines, wrinkles and loss of firmness.

How does Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex work?

Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex utilizes R+F’s powerful 3D3P Molecular Matrix to help your delicate under-eye skin reach its optimal hydration level, visibly decreasing the look of dark under-eye circles and dryness. The hydrating power of the 3D3P Molecular Matrix also makes the under-eye skin more receptive to other ingredients, so we supercharged the formula with caffeine, phytonutrients and illuminating brighteners to visibly reduce puffiness and improve under-eye radiance.

When do I apply Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex if using it with my R+F Regimen?

After cleansing and toning your face, use your ring finger to gently apply a small amount of Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex to the eye area in the morning and evening. Stay away from lashes and do not apply to the upper eyelid. Allow to dry, then follow with your remaining Regimen products.

When used with the AMP MD Derma-Roller, cleanse, tone, use the AMP MD Derma-Roller, then apply Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex as directed. Follow with the remaining products in your skincare routine.

What are the results of using Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex?

Consumer participants reported noticeable improvements in just two weeks with even better results after four weeks.
After just four weeks of using Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex, consumer participants reported overall improvement in the appearance of:

  • 93% brightness of the eye area
  • 87% dark under-eye circles
  • 91% under-eye puffiness
  • 82% under-eye hydration

*Based on a 4-week U.S. consumer study. Results may vary depending on multiples factors: age, gender, skin type and condition, concomitant products used, health history, location, lifestyle and diet.

Why do I need a separate product for the eye area? Can’t I just use my Regimen or Active Hydration Serum around my eyes?

The skin around the eyes is the thinnest on the face and surrounds the fragile eye itself. Every eye area product needs to be tested and approved specifically by an ophthalmologist prior to usage for safety. Every Rodan + Fields eye product receives extensive testing to this end.

Other products, though safe and effective to be used where intended, are usually not tested to be used near the eye. At Rodan + Fields, safety and efficacy as well as customer satisfaction are our priorities when it comes to our products.

Who should use Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex?

Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex is suitable for all skin types. This product is especially powerful for those with under-eye dark circles, puffiness, general dullness or dryness.

How is ENHANCEMENTS Active Hydration Serum different from REDEFINE Intensive Renewing Serum?

A serum is simply a product formulated to address a specific need. Despite both being serums, Active Hydration Serum and Intensive Renewing Serum each contain different ingredients to address specific skincare concerns and provide different benefits.

  • ENHANCEMENTS Active Hydration Serum delivers a high level of hydration in a lightweight formula to nourish and replenish skin. It immediately infuses skin with intense hydration for a smoother, more youthful-looking complexion that visibly improves over time.
  • REDEFINE Intensive Renewing Serum contains a potent, proprietary blend of Peptides and Retinal to visibly improve skin texture and firmness and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Even though it feels silky smooth, it does not contain any moisturizing properties. In fact, Active Hydration Serum is a layering serum that can be applied before the Intensive Renewing Serum to help amplify its effects. When used with REDEFINE AMP MD Derma-Roller, roll first, then apply Active Hydration Serum, immediately follow with Intensive Renewing Serum and the remaining steps in your evening Regimen.

How do I use REDEFINE Intensive Renewing Serum with SOOTHE Regimen?

If you have excessively sensitive skin, we do not recommend using REDEFINE Intensive Renewing Serum. Keeping sensitive skin under control is a critical step to slowing the visible signs of aging. With continued use of SOOTHE Regimen your skin will look calm, even and more radiant.

However, after using SOOTHE Regimen for two to four weeks, you can patch test Intensive Renewing Serum after SOOTHE Sensitive Skin Treatment (Step 2) as part of your evening Regimen and begin using it twice a week, increasing to every night as tolerated. And, of course, a broad spectrum sunscreen is the most important weapon in your anti-aging arsenal. SOOTHE Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 is optimally formulated to protect sensitive skin from accelerated aging due to the sun.

Can I use REDEFINE ACUTE CARE with REDEFINE Regimen and REDEFINE AMP MD System?

Yes, you can use ACUTE CARE with REDEFINE Regimen and REDEFINE AMP MD System. For best results, follow these steps:

  1. Cleanse with REDEFINE Daily Cleansing Mask.
  2. Divide face into sections (forehead, right side, left side, chin, nose and neck) and with moderate and comfortable pressure, roll AMP MD Derma-Roller over each section 4-10 times, changing directions with each pass: vertically, horizontally, in a diagonal from upper left to lower right, and in a diagonal from upper right to lower left.
  3. After rolling, apply ACUTE CARE to expression lines as directed. Skin must be completely clean and dry before you apply ACUTE CARE. Do not use any leave-on products underneath ACUTE CARE, including eye cream.
  4. Apply contents of one REDEFINE Intensive Renewing Serum capsule to entire face and neck. Be sure to apply REDEFINE Intensive Renewing Serum carefully, staying ¼ inch away from ACUTE CARE.
  5. Layer REDEFINE Overnight Restorative Cream and be sure to stay ¼ inch away from ACUTE CARE.

What is Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex?

Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex is a lightweight gel-cream formulated to visibly improve the dark circles, puffiness and general dullness associated with tired eyes. Bright Eye Complex delivers targeted hydration to the fragile under-eye area via R+F’s proprietary 3D3P Molecular Matrix which, combined with caffeine and nourishing phytonutrients, leaves eyes looking rested and refreshed.

How do I use REDEFINE AMD MD System with REDEFINE Regimen?

For best results, follow these steps at least three nights per week, ramping up to every night:

  • Cleanse with the REDEFINE Daily Cleansing Mask and follow with the REDEFINE Pore Minimizing Toner.
  • Divide face into sections (forehead, right side, left side, chin, nose and neck) and with moderate and comfortable pressure, roll the AMP MD Roller over each section 4-10 times, changing directions with each pass: vertically, horizontally, in a diagonal from upper left to lower right and in a diagonal from upper right to lower left.
  • After rolling, apply the contents of one REDEFINE Intensive Renewing Serum capsule to your entire face and neck and follow with the REDEFINE Overnight Restorative Cream.

Why did R+F create Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex?

The thin, fragile skin around the eyes is more likely to be the first place to show signs of stress and fatigue. These signs often appear as dark circles, puffiness and/or dullness, which usually coincide with dehydrated skin. To address them, we created Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex using 3D3P Molecular Matrix and brightening illuminators to properly hydrate the eye area, diffuse discoloration and minimize puffy-looking skin. As a result, you will see a more radiant and a refreshed eye area.

Is REDEFINE Intensive Renewing Serum a moisturizer?

REDEFINE Intensive Renewing Serum is not a moisturizer but a proprietary blend of Retinal and Peptides. Retinal helps enhance skin’s natural cell turnover to visibly improve skin texture and minimize the appearance of pores while Peptides reduce the appearance of wrinkles and visibly increase skin firmness and elasticity.

How do I use REDEFINE Intensive Renewing Serum with UNBLEMISH Regimen?

After using the UNBLEMISH Regimen for four weeks, you can patch test Intensive Renewing Serum in the evening, in place of UNBLEMISH Dual Intensive Treatment (Step 3) in the Regimen. Begin using it three nights a week in place of UNBLEMISH Dual Intensive Treatment, increasing to every night as tolerated.

Can I use REDEFINE Intensive Renewing Serum and ENHANCEMENTS Micro-Dermabrasion Paste together?

Once your skin has acclimated to nightly usage of REDEFINE Intensive Renewing Serum, you can introduce ENHANCEMENTS Micro-Dermabrasion Paste one to three times a week in the morning as tolerated.

If you have excessively sensitive skin we do not recommend you use REDEFINE Intensive Renewing Serum or ENHANCEMENTS Micro-Dermabrasion Paste.

Can I use REDEFINE AMP MD Derma-Roller with other products?

The AMP MD Derma-Roller is clinically tested for use only with the REDEFINE Regimen, the REVERSE Brightening Regimen, REDEFINE Intensive Renewing Serum and R+F Active Hydration Serum. We do not advise that the REDEFINE AMP MD System be used with any other products or medications, including the REVERSE Lightening Regimen, SOOTHE Regimen or UNBLEMISH Regimen.

Should I expect any irritation with REDEFINE Intensive Renewing Serum, and what level of irritation is normal?

REDEFINE Intensive Renewing Serum is formulated with our proprietary Retinal-MD Technology to help deliver a potent amount of Retinal while reducing the potential for irritation. The Retinal-MD molecule is unique in that Calcium microspheres encapsulate the Retinal, creating a time-release delivery system to lower the potential for irritation. However, due to the high amount of Retinal, some people might experience signs of mild dryness, skin tightness and visible redness, which is a normal function of the skin. If you experience any of these signs, we recommend reducing the frequency of use to every other night. If your experience is beyond mild and tolerable or if irritation is persistent, we recommend discontinuation.

Should my REDEFINE Intensive Renewing serum have a yellowish color to it?

Yes, the yellow tint is normal and is due to a high concentration of Retinal, a derivative of Vitamin A, which has a naturally yellow color.

  1. Cleanse with REVERSE Deep Exfoliating Wash.

Divide face into sections (forehead, right side, left side, chin, nose and neck) and with moderate and comfortable pressure, roll AMP MD Derma-Roller over each section 4-10 times, changing directions with each pass: vertically, horizontally, in a diagonal from upper left to lower right, and in a diagonal from upper right to lower left.
  3. After rolling, apply ACUTE CARE to expression lines as directed. Skin must be completely clean and dry before you apply ACUTE CARE. Do not use any leave-on products underneath ACUTE CARE, including eye cream.
