Take care of your skin while undergoing treatment with ReFissa by keeping in mind the following:
Avoid the sun (including sunlamps or tanning beds). Treatment with tretinoin (the active ingredient in ReFissa) can make it easier for your skin to burn. Always practice sun protection and use sunscreen (minimum SPF 15) when outdoors, even on a cloudy day.
Avoid hair and face products (cleansers, toners, moisturizers) containing alcohol, astringents, menthol, spices or lime. These ingredients may irritate your skin during treatment with ReFissa.
Be careful to keep hair dye or permanent-wave solutions off your face. Avoid electrolysis, hair depilatories or waxes on your face. If you are using any of these products or procedures, please consult your physician before using ReFissa.
Continue to wear your usual makeup while treating your skin with ReFissa. Also, maintain your current skin care program of soap or cleanser and daily sunscreen. Simply add ReFissa to your skin care routine in the evening before you go to bed.
