In a billion dollar global skin care industry that is fast growing to its projected trillion dollar mark, Rodan + Fields is a brand created for women by two women who have been repeatedly recognized for being among the top women entrepreneurs of this decade. It started with acne and blemish control.
Today, Rodan + Fields offers a complete line of skin care that includes an anti-aging line. “We tell our patients, ‘Don’t ignore the visible signs of aging. Take control and now you have the tools to do just that,” said Dr. Katie Rodan in a product demonstration video featuring one of the brand’s best sellers, the Redefine Macro Exfoliator.
When You’re All About Anti-Aging
Aging skin catches up with you sooner than later. No matter how hard you try to keep wrinkles off, those pesky lines will keep popping up. One of the areas most prone to show the first few signs of aging skin is the delicate skin around your eyes, which is no surprise because that area has a very thin layer of fat to help cushion it from impact and damage, and it is involved in every facial expression that you make.
One of the latest wrinkle care innovations to come out from the brand is the Rodan + Fields Redefine Acute Care. It’s for those times when expression lines begin to form and you need to fight back harder. It brings overnight repair to early signs of creasing skin. What you probably didn’t expect is that it isn’t a cream but, a plaster strip that soaks in your skin in the moisture restoring power of hyaluronic acid and wrinkle correcting properties of peptides.
Every box of this wonderful wrinkle treatment costs US $220, and comes with 10 pairs, that is 20 pieces, of plaster strips. The manufacturer promises to erase your wrinkles overnight up to a month’s time. Below is the step-by-step process that discusses the right way to use your Rodan + Fields Redefine Acute Care:
Step 1: Take precaution. The manufacturer strongly discourages women and men with sensitive skin types not to use this product, and those who are taking regular medication to seek their specialist’s approval prior to product use.
Step 2: Clear your face. Remove any makeup using a non-oil-based makeup remover. Then, cleanse using the Redefine Daily Cleansing Mask. Pat dry. Do not tone at this point. Take note that you follow this step carefully to make sure that the beneficial ingredients in your patch will come as close to your skin as possible without any other product layered underneath.
Step 3: Apply a strip. Pull out a strip and take off holders. Take care not to touch the treatment side of the patch. Work fast to place the strip over the affected area. Then, press down gently to let out air and remove bubbles. Expect a slight tingling sensation on initial contact with your skin.
Step 4: Carry on with your evening routine. If you are planning to use your Redefine Macro Exfoliator, you may use it but do not roll over the patched area. Your Redefine Macro Exfoliator sweeps away dead skin cells. Massage for overall 5 minutes, following the prescribed pressure for every area of your face.
Apply other products in your routine. For best results, use with other products in the Redefine product line, including the Redefine Pore Minimizing Toner and Redefine Overnight Restorative Cream.
Step 5: Sleep with your Rodan + Fields Redefine Acute Care strip on your face. Let the product work with your skin’s natural ability to heal and rejuvenate your skin while you take your beauty sleep.
Step 6: When you wake up, remove the patch. Press down on your skin where the upper portion of the patch is pointed to. Then, peel the patch using your other hand, careful not to pull too hard on your skin. Continue with your usual day time skin care routine.
Step 7: Keep going. Repeat the routine coninuously every 3 nights for a full month. To maintain and build on results, put on an Acute Care strip for 1 month every quarter. Always use this product along with the Rodan + Fields Redefine Regimen.
Aging skin care science has become so exciting. Solutions and devices that were once only accessible through skin care specialists can now be brought home so that you can enjoy the benefits of great skin care as much as you want to.
