What should be used on dry, cracked feet?

Dry, cracked feet may simply be dry skin and moisturization can improve the skin. However, chronic dry, cracked feet may also be a sign of a fungal infection that is a form of athlete’s foot. If your condition does not improve with moisturization, contact your dermatologist or podiatrist to determine the best treatment.

255
Can I use Rodan + Fields Regimens with other skincare products?

At Rodan + Fields we believe the best skincare results come from using the right ingredients in the right formulations in the right order to visibly transform skin. Our regimens are clinically tested and proven to work as developed. Other products may interfere with the benefits, and we cannot guarantee results.

256
Do you have a product for stretch marks?

Stretch marks are a form of scarring on the skin with an off-color hue. They are caused by tearing of the dermis, which over time may diminish, but will not disappear completely. At this point in time, there are no products that Dr. Rodan and Dr. Fields feel adequately address stretch marks.

257
What is melasma?

Melasma is a common skin problem. It causes brown to gray-brown patches on the face. Most people get it on their cheeks, bridge of their nose, forehead, chin and above their upper lip. It also can appear on other parts of the body that get lots of sun, such as the forearms and neck. Women are far more likely than men to get melasma. Hormones seem to trigger melasma.* For more information, click here.

Hydroquinone is the gold standard in treating hyperpigmentation, including melasma. Two percent hydroquinone is in REVERSE Skin Lightening Toner and Skin Lightening Treatment.

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.

260
What is vitiligo?

Vitiligo causes the skin to lose color. Patches of lighter skin appear. Some people develop a few patches. Others lose much more skin color. For more information, click here.

What is psoriasis?

Psoriasis is a chronic disease. It develops when a person’s immune system sends faulty signals that tell skin cells to grow too quickly. New skin cells form in days rather than weeks.
The body does not shed these excess skin cells. The skin cells pile up on the surface of the skin, causing patches of psoriasis to appear. For more information, click here.

If you have questions about treating psoriasis, contact your dermatologist.

What is keratosis pilaris?

Keratosis pilaris is a common skin condition that causes rough patches and small, acne-like bumps, usually on the arms, thighs, cheeks and buttocks. Keratosis pilaris bumps are usually white, sometimes red, and generally don't hurt or itch. Keratosis pilaris can be frustrating because it's difficult to treat. However, keratosis pilaris is not often serious and usually disappears by age 30. In the meantime, prescription medications and self-care measures can improve the appearance of keratosis pilaris.*
