How Does the unblemish Regimen Work?Based on Multi-Med® Therapy, the unblemish Regimen is acomplete skincare system that combines prescription medicinesat non-prescription strength with active cosmetic ingredientsthat penetrate to where the problem originates, stopping acneand treating dark marks before they are visible on the skin’ssurface. Furthermore, as dermatologists, we know that sunexposure triggers acne and makes your breakouts more likelyto leave remnant pigmented marks, so we’ve included an SPF20 sunscreen to this comprehensive plan of attack. By combiningthe right ingredients, in the right formulations, and using them inthe right order, the regimen: Kills bacteria deep in the pore to heal blemishes and prevent future breakouts.

Protects skin from damaging UVA/UVB rays. Controls oil production and shine.
Take control of blemishes andstop them from controlling you. With triggers such as genetics, stress, and hormones, acne is the most frequently diagnosed condition by dermatologists and affects nearly 85% of people at some point in their lives. Acne is not just a teenage concern; in fact, it affects approximately 30-40% of adult women. Whatever your age, the psychological impact can be significant. People with acne suffer from embarrassment, frustration, and low self-esteem. Fortunately, while not curable, acne is treatable, controllable, and preventable. We developed the Rodan + Fields® unblemish Regimen as a continuous solution that interrupts the acne cycle - clogged pores, trapped oil, bacterial attack, inflammation, and hyper-pigmentation. With daily use over the entire face, this pharmacological-grade regimen helps stop pimples, blackheads and post-acne dark marks from making an unwelcome appearance on your face—and in your life.
