How long can I use the REVERSE Brightening Regimen?

There is no limit to how long you can use the REVERSE Brightening Regimen. However, once you have addressed your dullness and/or discoloration concerns, you may choose to transition to another Rodan + Fields Regimen if you have additional skincare concerns. Frequently, REVERSE customers choose to transition to our REDEFINE Regimen for the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, but may transition back to REVERSE as needed.

When can I expect to see results from the REVERSE Lightening Regimen?

Based on our clinical studies using REVERSE Lightening Regimen*, offers visible improvements in skin texture and luminosity can be seen after just one use.

How do I use the REVERSE Brightening AMP IT UP Special if I also purchase ACUTE CARE?

3. After rolling, apply REDEFINE ACUTE CARE for 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 or toner.

5. Apply moisturizer as needed, staying at least ¼ inch away from ACUTE CARE.

1. In the evening, remove makeup with a non-oily makeup-removing cloth (such as REDEFINE Eye Cloths). Cleanse your face with REVERSE Deep Exfoliating Wash, rinse and pat dry. 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.
2. Tear open the pouch and remove ACUTE CARE from the transparent container. Carefully remove the white protective film and do not touch the delicate microstructure. For best results, use immediately after opening.
3. Position ACUTE CARE over the wrinkle area and press the adhesive gently against relaxed skin (do not stretch the skin). Gently press to activate cones and smooth out any bubbles.
4. Follow with the rest of the REVERSE nighttime Regimen, staying at least ¼ inch away from ACUTE CARE.

How do I use the REVERSE Brightening AMP IT UP Special, REVERSE Brightening Regimen and AMP MD?

Once you have ramped up to twice-a-day usage of the REVERSE Regimen, you can begin using the AMP MD Micro-Exfoliating Roller in the evening.

For best results, follow these steps at least three nights per week, ramping up to every night as tolerated.
1. In the evening, remove makeup with a non-oily makeup-removing cloth (such as REDEFINE Eye Cloths). Cleanse with REVERSE Deep Exfoliating Wash and follow with REVERSE Intensive Brightening Toner.
2. Divide face into sections (forehead, right side, left side, chin, nose and neck) and with moderate and comfortable pressure, roll the AMP MD Micro-Exfoliating 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 REVERSE Dual Active Brightening Complex (optional: layer on REDEFINE Night Renewing Serum) and, if needed, follow up with a moisturizer (REDEFINE Overnight Restorative Cream).

Can I purchase the REVERSE Dual Active Brightening Complex and incorporate it into the REDEFINE or UNBLEMISH Regimens?

The REVERSE Dual Active Brightening Complex is developed and clinically tested with the REVERSE Regimen products: Deep Exfoliating Wash, Intensive Brightening Toner and Broad Spectrum SPF 50+ Sunscreen. For best results, use the complete REVERSE Regimen as directed. Each step builds upon the previous to address every aspect of brown spots, dullness and discoloration. Used in combination, the formulations provide exfoliation, skin brightening and broad spectrum sun protection. Skipping any step could hinder achieving maximum results.

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

We recommend that you use mild cleansers, moisturizers and sunscreens as you ramp up to using the REVERSE 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.

What REDEFINE products can I use with REVERSE Regimen?

People who use REVERSE Regimen to address the appearance of unwanted pigmentation, help even and brighten overall look of skin tone, as well as reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, may also enjoy REDEFINE Multi-Function Eye Cream, Eye Cloths, Lip Renewing Serum and Overnight Restorative Cream. If you have built up to twice-a-day usage of REVERSE Brightening Regimen, you can introduce REDEFINE AMP MD Micro-Exfoliating Roller. We do not recommend using the AMP MD with REVERSE Lightening Regimen.

Can the REVERSE Regimen be used on the neck and décolleté?

It’s not just your face that shows the effects of environmental aging, so don’t stop at your neck when applying REVERSE. Make sure to continue onto your décolleté to visibly brighten any unwanted pigmentation. However, be aware that the skin is more delicate in areas such as the neck and décolleté, and you may need to reduce the frequency of use. The REVERSE Regimens may also be used on hands and arms.

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

Regardless of your skin type or condition, 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 and brown spots with either REVERSE Regimen, it is especially important to apply and reapply REVERSE Broad Spectrum SPF 50+ Sunscreen as directed.

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

Pure 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 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 Regimens?

Visible brown spots on the skin’s surface indicate more damage below. We developed the REVERSE Regimens to be a full-face solution to address both the visible signs of sun damage, as well as those less visible signs. In addition, using pigmentation-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 Regimens permanently fade brown spots?

After using REVERSE and obtaining the desired results, if you are extremely diligent about using broad spectrum sunscreen and limiting exposure to sun, you should be able to gradually fade the appearance of your brown spots and maintain your results. However, understand that a single day of unprotected sun exposure can virtually undo months of hard work. Apply a broad spectrum sunscreen every day and reapply it every two hours when exposed to sunlight.

Can I use the REDEFINE Night Renewing Serum with the REVERSE Lightening Regimen?

We recommend that you allow your skin to acclimate to the REVERSE Lightening Regimen for four weeks before introducing REDEFINE Night Renewing Serum. Incorporate the REDEFINE Night Renewing Serum after REVERSE Skin Lightening Toner and before REVERSE Skin Lightening Treatment every other evening and increase to every night as tolerated.

Can I use REDEFINE Night Renewing Serum with the REVERSE Brightening Regimen?

REVERSE Dual Active Brightening Complex (DABC) contains a healthy dose of Retinol. However, if you are also concerned about the visible signs of aging, the peptides in REDEFINE Night Renewing Serum can help. Allow your skin to acclimate to the REVERSE Brightening Regimen for four weeks and then incorporate the REDEFINE Night Renewing Serum after the the REVERSE DABC, follow with a moisturizer if needed.

Can I use the REDEFINE AMP MD Micro-Exfoliating Roller with the REVERSE BRIGHTENING Regimen?

Yes. Once you have built up to twice-a-day usage of the REVERSE Brightening Regimen, you may begin using the AMP MD Micro-Exfoliating Roller in the evening as tolerated after completing Steps 1 and 2 of the REVERSE Brightening Regimen. After rolling, follow with REVERSE Brightening Step 3.

How long can I use the REVERSE Lightening Regimen?

There is no limit to how long you can use the REVERSE Lightening Regimen. However, once you have addressed your dullness and/or discoloration concerns, you may choose to transition to another Rodan + Fields Regimen if you have additional skincare concerns. Frequently, REVERSE customers choose to transition to our REDEFINE Regimen for the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, but may transition back to REVERSE as needed.

Do I need to use all the steps in the REVERSE Regimen to get results?

For best results use the complete REVERSE Regimen as directed. Each step of the REVERSE Regimen builds upon the previous step to address every aspect of brown spots, dullness and discoloration as well as reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Used in combination, the formulations provide exfoliation, skin brightening and broad spectrum sun protection. Skipping any step could hinder achieving maximum results.

When can I expect to see results from the REVERSE Brightening Regimen?

  • 92% had visible improvements in brightness
  • 92% reported a smoother skin texture
  • 84% saw visible reduction in brown spots
  • 76% saw improvement in uneven skin tone
  • 60 % experienced a visible reduction in fine lines

How does the REVERSE Regimen Work?

Based on Multi-Med® Therapy, REVERSE Regimen is an effective, full-face solution that tackles the dullness, uneven skin tone, brown spots and other cumulative, telltale signs associated with sun exposure. It combines cosmetic and active-OTC ingredients to exfoliate dulling dead skin, address the appearance of unwanted pigmentation, helps even and brighten overall look of skin tone, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and protects against further UV damage providing a long-term solution for a radiant complexion.

Please read the REVERSE Regimen brochure before using the REVERSE Regimen. It contains usage instructions for best results.

What can I do for little white spots that “freckle” my skin?

Persistent sun damage may eventually cause some of the pigment-producing cells in your skin to stop producing melanin, leaving white confetti-like spots technically known as guttate hypomelanosis. Always take precautions to protect your skin from UVA and UVB damage. Be diligent with the use of broad spectrum sunscreens, cover up and seek shade whenever possible.

My UNBLEMISH Pump stopped working, what should I do?

UNBLEMISH Dual Intensive Acne Treatment is packaged in a 2-sided pump meant to dispense two different formulas at the same time. The product in the dual pump is viscous, which can cause air bubbles if the product is not stored upright. In order to bring the product back to the bottom of the chamber to dispense product correctly, the product should be held upright and tapped firmly on a hard surface.

Can I use the REDEFINE AMP MD System with the UNBLEMISH Regimen?

The AMP MD System has been clinically tested with our REDEFINE Regimen. We do not recommend you use the AMP MD System with the UNBLEMISH Regimen. However, if you are not experiencing active breakouts, you may use the UNBLEMISH Regimen in the morning and the REDEFINE Regimen and the AMP MD System in the evening. Do not use the AMP MD Micro-Exfoliating Roller on active acne.

How do I use the ACUTE CARE™ UNBLEMISH SPECIAL WITH CLARIFYING TONER?

ACUTE CARE can be used with the UNBLEMISH Regimen, but not on active acne or red and sensitive areas. For best results, follow these steps:
1. In the evening, remove makeup with a non-oily makeup-removing cloth (such as REDEFINE Eye Cloths). Cleanse your face with UNBLEMISH Acne Treatment Sulfur Wash, rinse and pat dry. 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 or toner.
2. Tear open the pouch and remove ACUTE CARE from the transparent container. Carefully remove the white protective film and do not touch the delicate microstructure. For best results, use immediately after opening.
3. Position ACUTE CARE over the wrinkle area and press the adhesive gently against relaxed skin (do not stretch the skin). Gently press to activate cones and smooth out any bubbles. (Do not apply ACUTE CARE on active acne. See above instructions).
4. Follow with the rest of the UNBLEMISH nighttime Regimen, staying at least ¼ inch away from ACUTE CARE.

What products should I use with UNBLEMISH Regimen to address dark marks?

I am allergic to Benzoyl Peroxide. Can I use the UNBLEMISH Regimen?

You can still benefit from the UNBLEMISH Regimen by replacing UNBLEMISH Dual Intensive Acne Treatment with SOOTHE Sensitive Skin Treatment. This product, featuring RFp3 peptide technology which is a proprietary combination of two peptides and a protease inhibitor that work at the skin’s surface to neutralize triggers and pacify skin clinically proven to help reduce the visible signs of redness that are common in acne prone skin. Please follow the usage instructions provided for the UNBLEMISH Regimen, found in the UNBLEMISH Regimen Brochure.

I am allergic to sulfa drugs. Can I use UNBLEMISH Acne Treatment Sulfur Wash?

An allergy to oral sulfa medications like Bactrim, Septra, Trimethoprim or Sulfamethoxazole does not predispose one to an allergy to topical sulfur medications. If you are concerned about an allergy, you should consider trying a sensitivity test before beginning to use UNBLEMISH Acne Treatment Sulfur Wash:

1. Apply a small amount of the cleanser on your jawline or neck for 30 seconds, and then rinse it off.
2. Repeat this process three times a day in the same area as originally applied, for three days.
3. Watch for any signs of redness, dryness, irritation or swelling.

If you determine you are sensitive to UNBLEMISH Acne Treatment Sulfur Wash, discontinue use and substitute REDEFINE Daily Cleansing Mask for your cleansing step.

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

We recommend that you use mild cleansers, moisturizers and sunscreens as you ramp up to using the UNBLEMISH Regimen twice a day. Please avoid other products containing retinoids, 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.

I am using UNBLEMISH and my breakouts are getting worse. What should I do?

The blemish you see today has been forming under your skin for as long as two weeks. As you start a new acne regimen, the active ingredients may cause these blemishes to surface. This is a sign the products are working. Stick with it.

The acne cycle is also influenced by hormones, stress and other physiological and environmental factors, so there are many reasons for flare-ups. If you have been on the products for over a month and you are still experiencing increased breakouts, please contact the RF Connection at rfconnection@rodanandfields.com for assistance.

Can the UNBLEMISH Regimen be used on my body?

You may use the UNBLEMISH Regimen to address body acne as well. Ramp up directed to twice a day as needed to control acne breakouts. Once a day, gently massage ENHANCEMENTS Micro-Dermabrasion Paste over the affected area on damp skin. Rinse the skin and pat dry. Then follow with the remaining UNBLEMISH Regimen and apply a lightweight moisturizer if skin feels dry. Be aware that Benzoyl Peroxide can bleach fabrics so wear white clothing and use white lines and towels.

I’m using the UNBLEMISH Regimen and my skin is dry. What should I do?

Slight tightness or mild redness may indicate that your skin is adjusting to the ingredients in the regimen. This is a common occurrence and may last up to two weeks. If you experience dryness while using the UNBLEMISH Regimen, layer a moisturizer over UNBLEMISH Dual Intensive Acne Treatment such as SOOTHE Sensitive Skin Treatment or SOOTHE Moisture Replenishing Cream.

My skin is looking clear. Now what should I do?

Acne is not curable but it can be controlled, and the right acne regimen may prevent new blemishes from forming. If the UNBLEMISH Regimen is helping to clear your skin, stay on it. There is no limit to the length of time you can use the UNBLEMISH Regimen. If you discontinue the UNBLEMISH Regimen, your blemishes are likely to return because the causes may be hormonal and genetic, among other reasons.

How long should I use the UNBLEMISH Regimen?

There is no cure for acne, but you can control it with the UNBLEMISH Regimen. Just because your skin is clear doesn’t mean it’s time to stop. Continuous use of the UNBLEMISH Regimen will help keep your skin clear. Once your skin has been acne free for an extended period of time, you may consider shifting to once-a-day use of the UNBLEMISH Regimen and start introducing our REDEFINE Regimen into your daily routine.

When can I expect to see results from the UNBLEMISH Regimen?

Most people see results in six to eight weeks with the UNBLEMISH Regimen. However, if your acne is severe, it may take longer before you see an improvement. The longer you use the products, the more visible the results will be.

In an independent six week clinical study, subjects with acne achieved the following results in acne lesions:
16%reduction after 2 weeks
42% reduction after 4 weeks
63% reduction after 6 weeks
If your skin does not improve within eight weeks of twice-a-day usage or you have cystic acne, we recommend you see a dermatologist.

How does the UNBLEMISH Regimen work?

Based on Multi-Med® Therapy, the UNBLEMISH Regimen is a complete solution that tackles the acne process—clogged pores, trapped oil, inflammation and hyperpigmentation. Because breakouts are continuously forming under the surface of acne-prone skin, the multiple active ingredients in the UNBLEMISH Regimen should be used twice daily over the entire face to stop the acne process. With continued use, blemishes will be reduced and marks will appear to fade, and skin will look healthier and clearer.

Please read the UNBLEMISH Regimen brochure before using the UNBLEMISH Regimen. It contains usage instructions for best results.

How do I use the ACUTE CARE™ with the SOOTHE Regimen?

ACUTE CARE can be used with the SOOTHE Regimen, but not on areas of sensitivity, redness or irritation. For best results, follow these steps:

Can infants or children use SOOTHE products?

For anyone under two years of age or if there is a health concern, we advise:

2) As the SOOTHE Brochure directs, patch test the products on separate areas near the place of planned application three times a day for three days on a small area to see if the skin can acclimate to the formulations.

How do I use REDEFINE Night Renewing Serum with my SOOTHE Regimen?

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

What REDEFINE products can I use with SOOTHE?

People who use SOOTHE also enjoy REDEFINE Multi-Function Eye Cream, Eye Cloths and Lip Renewing Serum.
REDEFINE Eye Cloths are a powerful eye area treatment and gentle makeup remover all in one by gently removing eye makeup while simultaneously providing the sensitive eye area with powerful overnight anti-aging and restorative benefits. Cloths reduce puffiness and fine lines without stinging.

REDEFINE Multi-Function Eye Cream combines powerful peptides to minimize the appearance of crow’s-feet, helps reduce the appearance of both puffiness and dark under eye circles while special optical diffusers noticeably brighten the eye area. This formula is ideal for maintaining the delicate skin around the eyes.

REDEFINE Lip Renewing Serum Restore and maintain your fuller, younger-looking lips. It’s rich with peptides and antioxidants, including vitamin E, to help lips retain their natural moisture, visibly smooth lip texture and reduce the appearance of lip wrinkles.

What products should I avoid if I have extremely sensitive skin?

Visit the Solution Tool for a customized skincare routine based on your needs, based on the expertise of Dr. Katie Rodan and Dr. Kathy Fields.

The Rodan + Fields Solution Tool is available exclusively through our Rodan + Fields Independent Consultants’ Personal Websites. To get your customized skincare recommendation, contact the Consultant who introduced you to Rodan + Fields.

Can the SOOTHE Regimen be used on the body?

Yes, you can use the SOOTHE Regimen on your body. Many Customers use SOOTHE products on their neck and chest. Medical personal, restaurant workers and those in cold harsh climates use the SOOTHE Regimen on their hands or elbows. If your skin does not improve, we suggest that you visit a local dermatologist for further treatment.

What environmental factors can trigger sensitive skin?

There are a number of environmental triggers that can cause sensitivity in skin, including oxidative stress caused by free radicals, climate change, pollution, smoke, smog, sun exposure, friction or just plain old product overload. Even those whose skin is usually calm throughout the rest of the year can experience bouts of seasonal sensitivity during the dryer, harsher, winter months.

The SOOTHE Regimen helps to reduce dryness, cracked, or chapped skin so that you can take comfort in having a calm, healthy-looking complexion every day.

What causes sensitive skin?

The skin’s natural lipid barrier is designed to hold moisture, cool the skin through release of moisture and prevent irritants from penetrating into the skin. When that barrier is compromised, due to genetic predisposition or environmental factors, your skin loses water faster and is more exposed to irritation from external triggers.

Will SOOTHE Moisture Replenishing Cream cause my skin to breakout?

Acne can be triggered by stress, hormonal changes, mechanical friction, bacteria or a change in medications. SOOTHE is formulated to help calm and is less likely to react adversely to your skin. However, if your skin is prone to breakouts, refer to the Solution Tool to discover how the doctors combine the UNBLEMISH Regimen with the SOOTHE Regimen.

To start, follow the directions for the SOOTHE Regimen–read the brochure and patch test all of the products.

Use the UNBLEMISH Acne Treatment Sulfur Wash (and Paste) like this:
Use UNBLEMISH Acne Treatment Sulfur Wash once or twice a day to address clogged pores and slight breakouts and calm skin. Always follow with the remainder of your skincare routine.
If skin is not sensitive, you may also lightly exfoliate skin with ENHANCEMENT Micro-Dermabrasion Paste ON WET SKIN.
Tips–if skin feels dry: wipe off-versus rinse off the Gentle Cream Wash, Use the Micro-Dermabrasion Paste 1-3 times a week to buff off flakes and apply more SOOTHE Sensitive Skin Treatment as needed.
If skin feels oily-rinse off the Gentle Cream Wash, use the Paste 1-3 times a week and SKIP Moisture Replenishing Cream.
Those that wear foundation may also like the Mineral Peptide powders to help reduce the oiliness and underlying redness.

What is an emulsifier?

Emulsifiers allow rich oils to be combined with aqueous ingredients creating elegant creams and lotions. Emulsifiers are widely used, but for those with sensitive skin, they can trip the inflammatory cascade. With RF COLD FISSION™, we’re able to give sensitive skin the ingredients it needs in an elegant formulation without the emulsifying ingredients that can cause irritation.

Sunscreen irritates my sensitive skin. Can I skip this step?

People with sensitive skin need to be especially diligent about sun protection because sun exposure can trigger sensitive skin. SOOTHE Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 contains only mineral-based sunscreen ingredients (zinc oxide and titanium dioxide) that deflect the sun’s rays, keeping the skin’s surface cooler to minimize the appearance of facial redness. Additionally, by deflecting the sun’s rays, fewer free radicals are generated/formed, which is another one of the triggers those with sensitive skin should avoid.

SOOTHE Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 is a lightweight formula free of chemical sunscreens, fragrances, dyes or alcohol that can irritate sensitive skin. It conditions skin with panthenol and glycerin, helps protect skin’s natural barrier wand provides antioxidant benefits with vitamin E and licorice root extract.

If you are still concerned, we recommend you test the product on a small area before using on your entire face.

Is there a way to try the SOOTHE Regimen if I am afraid to use it because I have very sensitive skin?

If you have concerns that your skin may be reactive or sensitive to certain ingredients, apply any new product in a small area on the jawline before introducing it on your face.

We recommend you test products using the following instructions for three days, three times a day:

1. Apply a small amount of the product on your jawline or neck. If you’re testing a cleanser, apply it for 30 seconds, and then rinse it off.
2. Apply each product on a separate area. When you test again, reapply the products in the same area as originally applied.
3. Watch for any signs of redness, dryness, irritation or swelling.

If you determine you are sensitive to a product, discontinue use. You may want to consider consulting your physician for further testing to determine which ingredient(s) causes sensitivity so that you may avoid using products containing that ingredient in the future. This is as simple as sending the SOOTHE Regimen ingredient list to your healthcare provider for review.

How long should I use the SOOTHE Regimen?

Those with chronic sensitivity that results in skin reacting to common physiological and environmental stressors may need to be on the SOOTHE Regimen indefinitely. However, if your sensitivity is more occasional than chronic, you may be able to tolerate stronger products once you have kept your sensitive skin under control for at least 60 days. Before making any changes, we recommend you test the products using the following instructions for three days, three times a day:

1. Apply a small amount of the product on your jawline or neck. If you’re testing a cleanser, apply it for 30 seconds, and then rinse it off.
2. Apply each product on a separate area. When you test again, reapply the products in the same area as originally applied.
3. Watch for any signs of redness, dryness, irritation or swelling.

If you determine your skin can tolerate more active products, you may begin adding them to your daily skincare routine every other day, building up to daily usage.

When can I expect to see results from the SOOTHE Regimen?

With your first use, the SOOTHE Regimen will help relieve your skin of dryness and visible redness. Our clinical results demonstrated a visible improvement in redness, peeling, dryness, and overall irritation due to dry, cracked, or chapped skin in five minutes.

Within days to weeks, depending on the sensitivity of your skin, your skin will feel comfortable, smooth and soft with a visible reduction in facial redness. Over time, the ingredients in the SOOTHE Regimen will help support your natural skin barrier, allowing your skin to become more resilient.

In an independent clinical study, subjects with hyper-sensitive skin achieved the following results:
• REDNESS: 56% reduction after five minutes* and 67% reduction after two weeks

How does the SOOTHE Regimen work?

The SOOTHE Regimen has been carefully formulated with ingredients specifically designed for sensitive skin. SOOTHE Gentle Cream Wash emulsifies makeup and other skin impurities. SOOTHE Sensitive Skin Treatment contains the OTCs Allantoin and dimethicone that alleviate minor cuts, burns, and peeling associated with dryness. And RFp3, our proprietary peptide technology that combines peptides with a protease inhibitor to neutralize triggers and pacify irritable skin. Optical filters help reduce the appearance of redness and botanicals comfort dry skin. SOOTHE Moisture Replenishing Cream utilizes unique patent-pending RF COLD FISSION™ to keep ingredients together in an elegant base without the use of emulsifiers. SOOTHE Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 uses only physical sunscreens (zinc oxide and titanium dioxide) to deflect damaging ultraviolet rays and keep the surface of the skin cool to help prevent flushing.

Is REDEFINE Night Renewing Serum a moisturizer?

REDEFINE Night Renewing Serum is not a moisturizer but a proprietary blend of retinol and peptides. Retinol enhances cell turnover to improve skin texture and minimize the appearance of pores. To really pack a powerful punch, REDEFINE Night Renewing Serum contains peptides to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and visibly increase skin firmness and elasticity.

Every evening, after cleansing and toning your skin, open a capsule and apply the Night Renewing Serum over your entire face, avoiding the eye area. Follow with REDEFINE Overnight Restorative Cream.

REDEFINE Night Renewing Serum is not recommended for sensitive skin.

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

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

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

How do I use REDEFINE Night Renewing Serum with my SOOTHE Regimen?

If you have excessively sensitive skin, we do not recommend using REDEFINE Night Renewing Serum. Keeping sensitive skin under control is a critical step to slowing the visible signs of aging. With continued use of the SOOTHE Regimen your skin will look calm, even and more radiant. However, after using the SOOTHE Regimen for 30 days, you can patch test the Night Renewing Serum and possibly begin using it twice a week increasing 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.

How do I use REDEFINE Night Renewing Serum with my REVERSE Regimen?

REVERSE Dual Active Brightening Complex contains a healthy dose of retinol which helps to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. However, if you are also concerned about the visible signs of aging, the peptides in REDEFINE Night Renewing Serum can help. We recommend that you allow your skin to acclimate to the REVERSE Regimen for four weeks before introducing REDEFINE Night Renewing Serum. Incorporate the Night Renewing Serum after REVERSE Intensive Brightening Toner and Dual Active Brightening Complex every other evening and increase to every night as tolerated.

What is the difference between the REVERSE Deep Exfoliating Wash and ENHANCEMENTS Micro-Dermabrasion Paste? And when do I use each one?

REVERSE Deep Exfoliating Wash is a multi-mechanism exfoliator that simultaneously cleanses and helps to visibly refine sun damaged, blotchy complexions. Alpha hydroxy acids loosen old, dull skin cells as tiny polyethylene beads effectively sweep them away. With a fresh, polished surface, skin appears brighter and prepped to receive the benefits of the rest of the REVERSE Regimen. This can be used daily.

ENHANCEMENTS Micro-Dermabrasion Paste is a salt and sugar combination in a high-glide, oil-free formula designed to promote maximum, gentle exfoliation. Use it two to three times per week in place of your cleanser to help improve skin tone and texture.

Can I use the REDEFINE AMP MD System on my arms, neck, hands 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 Regimen and the 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 face is red after using the REDEFINE Regimen and the 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 Micro-Exfoliating 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 Micro-Exfoliating 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 the SOOTHE Sensitive Skin Treatment.

Can I use the REDEFINE AMP MD System with the UNBLEMISH Regimen?

The AMP MD System has been clinically tested with our REDEFINE Regimen. We do not recommend you use the AMP MD System with the UNBLEMISH Regimen. However, if you are not experiencing active breakouts, you may use the UNBLEMISH Regimen in the morning and the REDEFINE Regimen and the AMP MD System in the evening. Do not use the AMP MD Micro-Exfoliating Roller on active acne.
