UNBLEMISH Regimen FAQs

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 Derma-Roller on active acne.

How do I use 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. 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?

If you wish to further brighten skin and fade dark marks as you manage acne you may add the REVERSE Regimen to your UNBLEMISH skincare routine:

WEEK ONE:
AM: UNBLEMISH Acne Treatment Sulfur Wash, Clarifying Toner, Dual Intensive Acne Treatment, Soothe Mineral Sunscreen every other morning
Alternate mornings use REVERSE Regimen Deep Exfoliating Wash, Intensive Brightening Toner, Dual Active Brightening Complex and Broad Spectrum SPF 50+ Sunscreen
PM: UNBLEMISH Acne Treatment Sulfur Wash, Clarifying Toner, Dual Intensive Acne Treatment

WEEK TWO:
AM: REVERSE Regimen Deep Exfoliating Wash, Intensive Brightening Toner, Dual Active Brightening Complex and Broad Spectrum SPF 50+ Sunscreen
PM: UNBLEMISH Acne Treatment Sulfur Wash, Clarifying Toner, Dual Intensive Acne Treatment

If skin becomes dry, layer a moisturizer over the REVERSE Dual Active Brightening Complex, and over UNBLEMISH Dual Intensive Acne Treatment such as SOOTHE Moisture Replenishing Cream.

If acne increases, use the UNBLEMISH Regimen Toner twice a day as directed for 3-5 days, or until the acne is again under control then transition to using REVERSE Regimen in the morning again.

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 from topical sulfur medications. If you are concerned about an allergy, we recommend consulting your doctor before trying the UNBLEMISH Acne Treatment Sulfur Wash. You can also consider trying a sensitivity test before beginning to use UNBLEMISH Acne Treatment Sulfur Wash as follows:

  • Apply a small amount of the cleanser on your jawline or neck for 30 seconds, and then rinse it off.
  • Repeat this process three times a day in the same area as originally applied, for three days.
  • 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 REDEFINE products can I use with UNBLEMISH?

People who use UNBLEMISH also enjoy REDEFINE Multi-Function Eye Cream, Lip Renewing Serum and Overnight Restorative Cream. You may also introduce REDEFINE Intensive Renewing Serum once you have built up to twice-a-day usage of UNBLEMISH. Allow the skin to acclimate to the UNBLEMISH Regimen for four weeks before introducing REDEFINE Intensive Renewing Serum. Incorporate the Intensive Renewing Serum at night, in place of UNBLEMISH Dual Intensive Acne Treatment every other evening, and increase to every night as tolerated.

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

We recommend that you use mild cleansers, moisturizers and sunscreens as you ramp up to using the UNBLEMISH Regimen twice a day. Avoid other products containing acne ingredients such as Benzoyl Peroxide and Salicylic Acid, Retinoids, Alpha-hydroxy Acids such as Glycolic or any scrubs and mechanical brushes, as they can result in irritation. The SOOTHE Regimen is a good option for your skincare Regimen.

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

The acne cycle is also influenced by hormones, stress and other physiological and environmental factors, all of which may contribute to flare-ups. Having a few more acne breakouts when you begin using UNBLEMISH may by normal. However, if you have been using 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 UNBLEMISH Regimen be used on my body?

You may use the UNBLEMISH Regimen to address body acne as well. Ramp up as 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 linens and towels.

I’m using 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 skincare 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 UNBLEMISH Regimen?

You can use this skincare Regimen for as long as needed. There is no cure for acne, but you can help control it with the UNBLEMISH Regimen. Just because your skin is clear doesn’t mean it’s time to stop. Continuous use of the 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 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 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.
