                        I am using retin a for acne which I apply every night before bed. When can I use the lightening serum? Can I use it at night also?

                          A:

                          If you are a long time user of retin a (have used it for 6 months - 1 year) then you can use your retin a at night and Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening during the day.
                          If you are new to using retin a we do not recommend using Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening and we do not recommend layering them.

                      • Q:

                        How would you use this in conjunction with a retinol product? I was thinking that I would use this at night, under a night cream, but I use a retinol every other night. Would it be OK if I put it under the retinol too, or should I just use it on the nights that I wear night cream?

                          We do not recommend layering Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum with a retinol product. Dr. Murad says it's best to sue them every other night. Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum one and the next night your retinol product and so on.

                        I'm looking to try the T-Zone Pore Refining Serum for my large pores, my skin is slightly dry after cleansing. Would it be safer to use the products separately or can I double up at night with a heavier nighttime moisturizer and use the T-Zone Pore Refining Serum in the morning with a good SPF moisturizer?

                          It is safer to use the products separately. Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum is very active and we do not recommend layering it with another serum. Use it at night and use the T-Zone Pore Refining Serum during the day.

                          Even when wearing sunscreen you can have a slight tan just from being outside for a short time or driving. If you apply only on the spots what can happen is you get a halo around the spot from product moving and lightening the other area of the skin.

Would it bleach my skin weird if I avoided the freckled areas under my eyes? Or could I just put it on the spots? (I don't have current acne, and I'm looking to get this with the vitamin c kit.)

                          You want to use this product all over the face excluding the eye area. It is not a bleach; it will not lighten your skin past what it was when you were born. That being said it will lighten freckles as they are your skin's reaction to the sun.
