How long can I use REVERSE Lightening Regimen?
There is no limit to how long you can use the REVERSE Lightening Regimen, since persistent skin issues may continue to cause discoloration. Use it for as long as needed to diminish dark spots and reveal a more luminous complexion. However, once you have addressed your pigmentation 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 our REVERSE Lightening Regimen as needed.

Why can’t I use the AMP MD System with the REVERSE Lightening Regimen?
The AMP MD System has been clinically tested with our REDEFINE and REVERSE Brightening Regimen. We do not recommend you use the AMP MD System with the REVERSE Lightening Regimen as this Regimen has not been tested with the AMP MD Derma-Roller. Because the AMP MD Derma-Roller is an exfoliating tool, using it along with the REVERSE Lightening could potentially lead to an increase in the chance of irritated or red skin.

What is the difference between the REVERSE Lightening Regimen and REVERSE Brightening Regimen?
The two Regimens feature different key ingredients to tackle the full range of skin discoloration concerns due to sun damage, hormones and other factors.
  • REVERSE Brightening features Vitamin C and Retinol to help even out dullness, discoloration and skin tone — often the first signs of aging.
  • REVERSE Lightening features 2% Hydroquinone to gradually lighten stubborn, persistent, excessive pigmentation, including dark marks and age spots.
I’m using REVERSE Lightening Regimen and my skin is dry. What should I do?
The REVERSE Lightening Regimen works to gradually reveal lighter skin with the OTC active ingredient Hydroquinone, brighten with Kojic Acid and Bearberry Extract and help revitalize skin with exfoliators such as Benzoic Acid and Salicylic Acid.

As your skin acclimates to new products, you may experience a couple of breakouts or skin dryness. If the breakout or irritation is severe, discontinue use. If the skin is normal to dry, simply layer a moisturizer such as Active Hydration Serum over the REVERSE Skin Lightening Treatment.

What products can I use on the off times while I ramp up with REVERSE Lightening Regimen?
We recommend that you use mild cleansers, moisturizers and sunscreens as you ramp up to using the REVERSE Lightening 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.

I have just a few dark marks. Can I treat just the spots with REVERSE Lightening Regimen?
Brown spots on the skin’s surface indicate more damage below. We developed the REVERSE Lightening Regimen to be a full-face solution to address the visible signs of sun damage as well as those less visible signs so that you can enjoy lighter skin. 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.

Which REDEFINE products can I use with REVERSE Lightening Regimen?
People who use the REVERSE Lightening Regimen to address the appearance of persistent skin discoloration, help even and brighten the overall look of skin tone, as well as reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, may also enjoy REDEFINE Multi-Function Eye Cream, REDEFINE Lip Renewing Serum and REDEFINE Overnight Restorative Cream.

Can REVERSE Lightening Regimen be used on the neck and décolletage?
It’s not just your face that shows the effects of environmental aggressors, so don’t stop at your neck when applying the REVERSE Lightening Regimen. Make sure to continue onto your décolletage to gradually help with skin lightening and persistent skin issues. 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 Lightening 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 stubborn dark marks, patches and age spots with the REVERSE Lightening Regimen, it is especially important to apply and reapply REVERSE Broad Spectrum SPF 50+ Sunscreen as directed to help maintain lighter skin. For streak-free, sunless color, we recommend ESSENTIALS Foaming Sunless Tan.
