Additional Information

What skin type is appropriate for using the Lytera® Skin Brightening System?

The Lytera® Skin Brightening System is appropriate for all skin types. It is ideal for skin types that have been preconditioned with a retinol product. If you have not used a retinol product before, begin by limiting use to twice a week, gradually increasing frequency to every other night and then every night, as tolerated.

What other SkinMedica® products can I use to complement the Lytera® Skin Brightening System?

Sunscreen is required to optimize and maintain the results of using the Lytera® Skin Brightening System. We recommend TOTAL DEFENSE + REPAIR Broad Spectrum Sunscreens (SPF 34, SPF 34 Tinted, or SPF 50+), Essential Defense Everyday Clear Broad Spectrum SPF 47, Essential Defense Mineral Shield SPF 32 (Tinted), Essential Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 35, or TNS Ultimate Daily Moisturizer™ SPF 20 Sunscreen. Apply sunscreen after Lytera® Skin Brightening Complex in the morning.

Additionally, to maximize results, we recommend using TNS Essential Serum® in the morning and evening, and a SkinMedica® moisturizer in the evening, after applying Retinol Complex. Talk to your doctor or skin care specialist about what products are best for you.

What are common side effects?

The most common side effects with the Lytera® Skin Brightening System include mild to moderate redness, peeling, and irritation.

Can patients with sensitive skin use the Lytera® Skin Brightening System?

Please speak with your doctor or skin care specialist for optimal guidance.

How to apply?

Apply AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser 2 to 3 days a week, or as tolerated, as the first product in your skin care routine. Apply Lytera® Skin Brightening Complex in the morning and evening, after cleansing. Apply Retinol Complex in the evening, as the last step before applying moisturizer. If you have never used a retinol product before, begin by limiting use to twice a week, gradually increasing frequency to every other night and then every night, as tolerated.
