Does it matter if I apply morning or evening?
No, just apply the top pad in your box once per day. You may choose to gently cleanse prior to applying your daily pad and moisturize after pad application. No other products are necessary for fabulous skin.
How is IMPRESS® different? I’ve used so many other products before?
The design of our system utilizes the most clinically proven effective ingredients for anti-aging. Our uniqueness is that you have three powerful formulas in one box for maximum benefit applied in a one step daily process for maximum ease. Three unique formulas, just one pad per day…genius!
How long does it take to work? Will I see results in 14 days?
The Peel & Brighten pad delivers nearly instant results by dissolving the surface layer of dead skin cells. Healthy living cells are revealed presenting a healthy youthful glow. Uplifting & Firming will begin working right away to stimulate new collagen growth. New collagen firms and lifts sagging & wrinkled skin. Understand it takes time for collagen to grow, so be patient and allow your skin to keep improving with daily use. Like diet & exercise, anti-aging is a lifestyle. That is why our process only requires one simple swipe of a pad per day, making it easy, affordable and effective for daily use.
It’s not working (my spots, wrinkles, discoloration, sagging skin are not improving)
Results improve with time. This is a lifestyle process. Just like planting a seed, patience is required while you await the plant to grow and bear fruit. You didn’t get spots, wrinkles, discoloration, sagging skin, etc. over night and they will not disappear overnight, but the pads have clinically proven ingredients to improve your skin more and more with each application. Every time you apply the pads you are reversing aging rather than allowing aging to progress unchecked.
How long do the results last?
With regular use, results last for a lifetime. Daily sunscreen application will also protect the longevity of results. We recommend our PrimeShade® zinc and titanium based sunscreen. Learn More About PrimeShade® and Maintaining Your Results
How cost-effective are the Impress® Facial Pads?
Effective high quality ingredients are not cheap. Remember you are buying three formulations (products) in one box. If you were to buy similar products separately, you would likely spend much more. Our research shows anti-aging skincare lines utilizing similar ingredients average $200 and more per month. Also, consider your first pad application, Peel & Brighten, is equivalent to a salon peel which would likely cost the same or more than an entire month’s worth of IMPRESS® Facial Pads. That’s an $80-$100 value back from the first pad application in the box! We are certain IMPRESS® is the easiest, most affordable and effective anti-aging skincare program available.
Where is the clinical proof?
You may search the Internet regarding our active ingredients: Retinoids, Hydroxy acids, Anti-oxidants (also see EGCG from green tea derived anti-oxidants). There is a multitude of clinical information and peer reviewed published science establishing the effectiveness of these specific dermatologic vehicles for the anti-aging of skin. We have determined no other active ingredients have more peer reviewed published scientific clinical data proving their effectiveness for anti-aging the skin than Retinoids, Hydroxy acids, Anti-oxidants. Impress® Facial Pads allow you to apply these ingredients simply and affordably for your best skin ever.
Can I use the pads on other areas besides the face?
Absolutely yes! Our facial pads are saturated with enough formula to add extra body parts like neck, chest and hands. Use each pad until it is completely dry. Anti-aging is not just for the face anymore.
Does the order I use the three different pads matter?
Yes, your Peel & Brighten pad is best to start with because it removes dead skin cells allowing the other pad ingredients to penetrate easier. Your Soothe & Shelter pad calms & protects the work of the more aggressive Peel & Brighten and Uplifting & Firming pads and is therefore arranged to be applied in between these other pad formulations providing optimal balance & results.
I spilled the pads out of the box and my pads are out of order, what should I do?
Place them back into the Impress® box in the following weekly (7 day) order from top to bottom: (1) Peel & Brighten, (2) Soothe & Shelter, (3) Uplifting & Firming, (4) Soothe & Shelter, (5)Uplifting & Firming, (6) Soothe & Shelter, (7) Uplifting & Firming. Repeat this order weekly.
I forgot to use the pads for a day or more. What should I do? Does the order change?
No, just continue where you left off.
Are the pad solutions tested on animals?
MEDICAL RELATED QUESTIONS:
If you have any skin related disease(s) or any medical conditions, always consult a qualified physician prior to applying Impress daily pads.
Can the pads be applied on or close to the eyes?
No, keep away form eyes and mucosa. If contact occurs, rinse well with water. If irritation, redness or itching occur, discontinue use and consult a physician.
The pads seem to be drying my skin. What should I do?
Our active ingredients are aggressive in order to promote real change. They may sometimes cause drying. A good moisturizer will likely benefit this reaction. We designed our Impress® Moisturizer to work ideally with our Impress® Facial Pads. Also be aware that during the winter months, indoor heating tends to cause dry skin especially when combined with aggressive anti-aging skincare therapy.
Is it normal to feel stinging or burning skin? Is it normal for my skin to feel more sensitive irritated or blotchy?
You can neutralize the product by rinsing your skin with cool water 10 minutes after application to minimize the sensitivity. Sensitivity is more common after your weekly Peel & Brighten pad application. Gradually increase the amount of time you can comfortably leave the products on your skin for maximum results. A good moisturizer should also be applied after your pad application to minimize or eliminate sensitivity. We designed our Impress Moisturizer to work ideally with our Impress® Facial Pads.
My skin has started breaking out since I started using the pads. Are they causing the breakout?
The ingredients in the Peel & Brighten and Uplifting & Firming pads contain active agents that defeat acne breakouts; however, if your skin is dry, dry skin can cause a breakout. You should consider using a hydrating OIL FREE moisturizer to be applied after your pad application.
Can I use the pads if I have eczema, rosacea or dry skin?
Consult your physician.
Can I use the pads if I have cancer or receive radiation or if I am pregnant/nursing?
Consult your physician.
Medicine & contra-indications. Are there medicines I may be taking that should not be combined with the application of my pads?
Consult your physician.
INGREDIENTS / CONTENTS RELATED QUESTIONS:
Are the ingredients natural?
Yes, the ingredients are all naturally derived.
Can I have a list of ingredients?
I left my pads in the heat. Are the ingredients ruined?
Your pads are sealed and have a two year shelf life. Excessive heat accelerates the shelf life; however, if they are not dry they should be ok.
I travel a lot. How do the pads travel?
The pads are individually sealed, so they’re easy to carry when traveling. No messy liquids to transport through airport security or requirements to place your products with checked baggage. Just take the number of pads from the top of your box equal to the number of days you are traveling. Remember, the order you use your three pads is important. When traveling, you may want to mark or number your pads in the order they are removed from the top of the box so you may apply them in their proper order should they get shuffled in your baggage.
My pads are colored; are the ingredients spoiled?
No, the pads have unique colors from the naturally derived ingredients & desert botanicals.
Where are the pads made?
They are 100% made in USA, developed at our medical laser clinic in Scottsdale, AZ.
What do I do with all of my other skincare products?
You will no longer need to apply other anti-aging products once you begin to apply the Impress® formulations, so save your money. You will still need to cleanse and moisturize your skin and protect with a good sunscreen, otherwise Impress Facial Pads are all you need for fabulous anti-aging results.
