RODAN + FIELDS
Breakouts? Unpredictable? Unreasonable? Unfair? Take control with our UNBLEMISH Regimen. Clinically proven to combat the entire acne cycle, this sophisticated regimen helps unclog pores, clears acne blemishes and calms your complexion to keep pimples, blackheads and post-acne marks from making an unwelcome appearance on your face—and in your life.
Since many acne sufferers have post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH), the remnant red/brown marks following a healed blemish, we offer UNBLEMISH Spot Fading Toner. However, if you are one of the lucky few who does not experience PIH, use our UNBLEMISH Clarifying Toner as an alternative.
The UNBLEMISH Regimen features four full-size products: Acne Treatment Sulfur Wash 125 mL/4.2 Fl.Oz.; Spot Fading Toner 125 mL/4.2 Fl.Oz. OR Clarifying Toner 125 mL/4.2 Fl.Oz.; Dual Intensive Acne Treatment 2 x 22.5 mL/.76 Fl.Oz.; and Oil Control Lotion SPF 20 30 mL/1 Fl.Oz.
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.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
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:
• 59% decrease in the amount of acne
• 80% decrease in overall skin discoloration
• 52% decrease in brown spots
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.
If you are using Spot Fading Toner with no improvement in the appearance of dark marks after three months of use, switch to UNBLEMISH Clarifying Toner.
Do I need to use all the steps in the UNBLEMISH Regimen to get results?
For best results we recommend using the complete UNBLEMISH Regimen. Skipping any one step can minimize results.
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.
Can I use the UNBLEMISH Regimen if I am 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 a child under 12 use the UNBLEMISH Regimen?
If you are under the age of 12, we recommend the UNBLEMISH Regimen with Clarifying Toner.
I only break out once a month. Do I need the entire UNBLEMISH Regimen?
Acne is acne. Whether you break out constantly or once a month, you need a full-face regimen to keep your acne at bay.
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.
Which UNBLEMISH Toner is right for me?
We designed UNBLEMISH to address the entire acne cycle. For a significant number of acne sufferers, brown marks can remain after a blemish has healed. If you are in this majority and are over 12 years of age, use UNBLEMISH Spot Fading Toner to help with these unsightly marks. If you are one of the lucky few who do not have this problem, use UNBLEMISH Clarifying Toner. Both toners penetrate pores, calm skin and prepare it for the treatments that follow.
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.
Can the UNBLEMISH Regimen be used on my body?
Yes, you may use the UNBLEMISH Regimen to address body acne as well. Once a day, glide ENHANCEMENTS Body Micro-Dermabrasion on damp skin over the affected area. Rinse the skin and pat dry. Layer UNBLEMISH Acne Treatment Sulfur Wash on dry skin as a 10-minute pore-cleansing mask. Rinse, pat dry and apply a lightweight moisturizer if skin feels dry.
Can the UNBLEMISH Regimen be used on dark skin?
UNBLEMISH has been shown to be safe and effective for use on all skin tones. Richer skin tones are more prone to unevenness due to hyperpigmentation. The UNBLEMISH Regimen with Spot Fading Toner is clinically proven to help visibly even overall skin tone and reduce the appearance of brown spots as it combats the entire acne cycle.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
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.
What REDEFINE products can I use with UNBLEMISH?
People who use UNBLEMISH also enjoy REDEFINE Multi-Function Eye Cream, Eye Cloths, Lip Renewing Serum and Overnight Restorative Cream. You may also introduce REDEFINE Night Renewing Serum once you have built up to twice-a-day usage of UNBLEMISH and the REDEFINE MACRO Exfoliator, when you do not have active acne.
How do I use REDEFINE Night Renewing Serum with my UNBLEMISH Regimen?
We recommend that you allow your skin to acclimate to the UNBLEMISH Regimen for four weeks before introducing REDEFINE Night Renewing Serum. Incorporate the Night Renewing Serum after UNBLEMISH Dual Intensive Treatment every other evening and increase to every night as tolerated.
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. 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.
