Rodan + Fields unique Multi-Med Therapy Approach to skincare!

Thank you to Rodan + Fields for sponsoring this post! 

Hey you! Do you have the luxury of seeing a dermatologist for your unique cosmetic skin concerns? Probably not. Are you maybe trying to self-treat a skin problem? Are you shopping your skincare based on ingredients, scanning bottle labels, looking for certain buzzworthy terms? 

You might end up with a mix of products that aren’t designed to be used together and are counter-effective! And that is how Rodan + Fields can help with their unique Multi-Med Therapy Approach with products that are designed to target main skincare concerns to deliver visible results: signs of aging, skin discoloration, adult acne and sensitive skin! 

Here´s something that you might not know: Dr. Katie Rodan and Dr. Kathy Fields are both certified dermatologists! Yes, they met as residents in the ‘80s at Stanford University. 

So, what sparked the idea to create another skin care brand after the success of their first venture, Proactiv? It was a conversation between Dr. Katie Rodan and one of her patients: “I always ask my patients what products they’re using,” says Dr. Katie Rodan. “One woman told me about her elaborate 6-step ritual made up of a number of very expensive products. When asked whether she was seeing a difference and receiving compliments, she hemmed and hawed. It was clear to me, and at that point obvious to her, that given the time and money invested, she should expect more; a real improvement in the quality of her complexion.” 

That’s when Dr. Katie Rodan and Dr. Kathy Fields realized the need for skincare systems to tackle all our most common skin complaints.

“The vast majority of people self-treat their skin problems because access to dermatologists is limited. We felt compelled to create more products to treat other skin challenges beyond acne,” says Dr. Kathy Fields. 

“No one has perfect skin. Everyone is dealing with some kind of complexion hurdle, and as dermatologists, Katie and I know that it’s never just one thing causing the problem that you see. There’s a multitude of issues going on beneath the surface that need to be addressed in order to take hold of the problem and create noticeable changes in your skin.” 

And this is the main principle behind Multi-Med Therapy! 

So, what is Multi-Med Therapy exactly?

Multi-Med Therapy is an unique skincare routine approach that combines tried and true over-the-counter drug and cosmetic ingredients and formulates them into specific product forms that deliver powerful results, such as: 

Vitamin C
Hyaluronic Acid
Benzoyl Peroxide 

It takes a chain of events happening to trigger a visible problem, which is why no one ingredient or no one product can magically fix everything. Each contributing factor needs to be targeted, and the products must all work in synergy to bring the problem under control—without irritating or drying out skin in the process. Multi-Med Therapy is the most efficacious, scientifically-demonstrated formulas working together to address skin concerns and maintain healthy-looking skin. It is simply the right ingredients, in the right formulations, applied in the right order. 

 “Each ingredient is carefully chosen to be the right quantity and quality to enhance the impact of the other ingredients within the formula, and each formula in a Regimen prepares the skin for the next step, so you get optimal benefits from every product you apply,” says Dr. Katie Rodan. 

For example, “Say you want a product with Vitamin A,” says Dr. Kathy Fields. “First, there’s no way for you to know the quality of the Vitamin A because that information usually isn’t listed on the label. We use Retinaldehyde in Intensive Renewing Serum, which is a potent version of Vitamin A and stronger than Retinol that converts to Retinoic Acid more efficiently that other versions, and our Retinaldehyde is stabilized, which is unique. So, you’re getting one of the best Retinoids on the market.” 

You also need to prep skin to accept Retinol so that it can work effectively. The same happens with other ingredients. “When you want to target skin discoloration and spots, it makes sense to start with a scrubby cleanser to unclog pores and clear away dead skin so that the Kojic and Salicylic Acids in toner and the products with Vitamin C can better reach the surface of the skin and the key ingredients can get to where they need to go,” says Dr. Kathy Fields. 

“This is why it’s so important to use a comprehensive skincare system designed to target your specific needs,” says Dr. Katie Rodan. “As doctors working with a team of top scientists, we understand the nuances of how ingredients interact with one another in a way that no consumer ever could just by eyeballing ingredient labels.”

Because Dr. Katie Rodan and Dr. Kathy Fields can’t possibly personally consult with all Rodan + Fields’ customers, they designed a Solution Tool to help people determine their most pressing skin issue and match them up with the correct Rodan + Fields Multi-Med Therapy skincare regimen to meet their specific needs. 

A skincare routine comprised of products from multiple brands may not produce the results people are hoping from. Cherry picking products might cancel some ingredients out or reduce the effectiveness of products. If you make something too complicated with too many steps, especially if a consumer is not quickly seeing results, it ends up being dumped into a product graveyard in their bathroom drawer. That is why each Rodan + Fields Regimen contains the right ingredients, in the right formulations, used in the right order, with every step building on the last, to help a person achieve life-changing results. Each product is clinically tested individually and together with the Regimen to ensure efficacious results. 

Here’s a fun fact: there is only about 1 dermatologist per 30,000 people in the US population! That means very few people have the luxury of seeing one for their cosmetic skin concerns. But Rodan + Fields Multi-Med Therapy Skin Care Regimens brings what works in the exam room to your bathroom, giving you dermatology-inspired results!

If you don't see a change in your complexion after using your products for the suggested amount of time to see results, you can return them, so Rodan + Fields can get you on the right Regimen!

So, are you ready for the best skin of your life and are you ready to take the guesswork out of trying to determine what products you need!? Use tried-and-true ingredients that are the dermatological gold standard to produce dermatology-inspired skincare systems to easily use at home without the visit to a Doctor’s office.
