How do I ease into my skincare medication?

Easing into the use of prescription skincare medication is crucial to minimize potential irritation or adverse reactions. We recommend the following to help ease into your products:

1. Always follow your prescription instructions.
2. Start with a patch test. Apply a small amount of the medication to a small, discreet area of skin and observe for any negative reactions over the next 24 hours.
3. If advised by your dermatologist, gradually increase usage as your skin increases its tolerance of the medication.

Ask your provider if you have any questions or concerns about starting any prescription medication, or about continued usage.
