apply the medication to clean the skin every 3rd night. Use enough of the medication to cover the face with a thin film. If you are not experiencing significant redness or peeling after 1-2 weeks of use, increase the frequency to every other night for 2 weeks. At that time, if tolerating the medication well, increase the frequency of use to every night. If you continue to experience moderate redness or peeling, it’s ok to use the product every other night.

If you are already using a topical skin treatment with a retinoid (e.g., tretinoin, Differin®, Retin-A®, Tazorac®, or another over the counter retinol)

stop that treatment and continue using the Anti-Aging treatment in the same fashion. While using the Anti-Aging treatment, please do not use any other treatments on your face that contain a retinoid (including over-the-counter products).

You can use this medicine in conjunction with other topical skin products (e.g., serums, moisturizers, etc.), however, it is recommended that you apply the Anti-Aging Treatment first after washing your face with a mild cleanser (avoid abrasive scrubs or cleansers which can cause irritation or damage to your skin).
