Most common Q & A's:
When can I expect to see results from the REVERSE Regimen?
In a clinical study, participants using the REVERSE Regimen reported seeing the following results after eight weeks of use:
• 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
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.
Can I use the REDEFINE MACRO Exfoliator with the REVERSE Regimen?
Yes. Once you have built up to a twice a day usage of REVERSE Regimen, you may use the MACRO Exfoliator once a week in the evening as directed.
How long can I use the REVERSE Regimen?
There is no limit to how long you can use the REVERSE Regimen. However, once you have addressed your concerns about dullness and discoloration, we recommend you transition to our REDEFINE Regimen for the Appearance of Lines, Pores and Loss of Firmness.
When can I expect to see results from the REVERSE Regimen and AMP MD Micro-Exfoliating Roller?
Within two weeks of using the REVERSE Regimen and REDEFINE AMP MD Micro-Exfoliating Roller, more than 80% of the participants saw faster results in overall skin appearance, brightness, texture and firmness.
Can I use the REVERSE Regimen 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 appropriate ingredient lists will help inform the doctor. Click here for the Rodan + Fields ingredient list.
Can I use the AMP MD™ Micro-Exfoliating Roller with the REVERSE Regimen?
Yes. Once you have built up to twice a day usage of the REVERSE Regimen, you may begin using the AMP MD Micro-Exfoliating Roller in the evening after Steps 1 and 2 of the REVERSE Regimen. After rolling, follow with REVERSE Step 3. The REDEFINE Night Renewing Serum is optional when using the REVERSE Regimen because Step 3 already contains retinol which helps to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
Can I use REDEFINE Night Renewing Serum with the REVERSE Regimen and AMP MD Micro-Exfoliating Roller?
REVERSE Dual Active Brightening Complex 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.
Can the REVERSE Regimen be used on dark skin?
Yes. REVERSE is safe for use on all skin tones. Richer skin tones are more prone to unevenness due to pigmentation. The REVERSE Regimen is clinically proven to help visibly even skin tone to reveal your most radiant and natural complexion. Please visit the Rodan + Fields Solution Tool for a customized routine.
Does REVERSE Regimen 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.
I have just a few dark marks, can I just treat the spots with REVERSE Regimen?
Visible brown spots on the skin’s surface indicate more damage below. We developed the REVERSE Regimen 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.
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.
Will the retinol in the REVERSE Dual Active Brightening Complex improve the appearance of my lines and wrinkles?
Retinol and Vitamin C are both powerful anti-aging skincare ingredients. In our eight week independent 60% of participants saw an improvement in the appearance of their fine lines and wrinkles.
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 the REVERSE Regimen, it is especially important to apply and reapply REVERSE Broad Spectrum SPF 50+ Sunscreen as directed.
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 Regimen may also be used on hands and arms.
What REDEFINE products can I use with REVERSE?
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. Once you have built up to twice-a-day usage of REVERSE, you can introduce REDEFINE MACRO Exfoliator and AMP MD Micro-Exfoliating Roller.
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. Please 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.
Can I use the REDEFINE MACRO Exfoliator if I am using the REVERSE Skin Lightening Accelerator Pack?
Yes, but in order to avoid over-exfoliation, we recommend that you use the MACRO Exfoliator only as tolerated. If you have just begun using the REVERSE Skin Lightening Accelerator Pack, Deep Exfoliating Wash and Broad Spectrum 50+ Sunscreen, allow your skin to acclimate to it for four weeks, then try the MACRO Exfoliator.
Can I use the REDEFINE AMP MD System with the REVERSE Skin Lightening Accelerator Pack?
We do not recommend you use the AMP MD System with the REVERSE Skin Lightening Accelerator Pack. However, once stubborn dark marks have faded, transition to the REVERSE Amp It Up Special, which includes the REVERSE Regimen and AMP MD Micro-Exfoliating Roller.
