General Questions
Do all of the Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare™ products have to be used together as a system?

I do feel that the products work best together as a system; after all, that is how they were designed to function. However, it is important to note that these products are not dependent on each other to deliver complete results. Each Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare™ product stands alone as an effective treatment product, and can fit into any skin care routine.

What makes Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare™ different from all the other doctor/dermatologist brands?

I personally formulate all of my products to deliver immediate and long-term results for all skin types by combining the best of what nature and science have to offer. I am a practicing New York City dermatologist and daily interactions with my Manhattan patients provide inspiration for all of my product creations. My patients keep me informed about voids and frustrations they have with their skincare regimens and products, and I always keep this invaluable feedback top of mind when I am working on new product development. All products are multi-functional, providing dermatologist results without a prescription, to save both time and money. Products work synergistically and we always use medical grade ingredients and seek to provide a “surgical procedure alternative” for those in search of a flawless, younger-looking complexion.

Is it safe to use Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare™ products if I am pregnant?

Yes, Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare™ products do not contain ingredients that would negatively affect a pregnancy in any way. In fact, the Alpha Beta® Daily Face Peel, used in conjunction with our Hydra-Pure® skin care products, will actually help to treat melasma, and other conditions that pregnant women may experience. It is also good to always wear sunscreen as melasma is very sun-sensitive. Glycolic and OTC strength Salicylic Acid are safe to use, but I advise patients not to use Salicylic Acid even at OTC strength (which maxes out at 2%) more than once a day. If you are on the fence, it is best to discuss this matter directly with your personal care physician.

Does Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare™ test on animals?

Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare™ is an animal-loving company, emphatically against animal cruelty. We do not test our products on animals.

Do Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare™ products contain fragrance?

Generally, all Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare™ products are fragrance-free, making all them ideal for both men and women. However, there is a small trace of hypo-allergenic fragrance in a few products to enhance the application experience, and should not cause irritation or skin sensitivity:

Can Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare™ products, including the Alpha Beta® Daily Face Peel, be used in conjunction with Retin-A®, Renova®, Differin®, Avita™ or Accutane®?

Yes. However, if you wish to exercise extreme caution, you should stop using prescription retinoic acid products for two nights prior to the initial application of the Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare™ product (there is a small chance the combination could be irritating to certain skin). Once you have used Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare™ products for a day or two without irritation, it is safe to resume a normal schedule of Retin-A® or other retinoic products. If dryness or irritation occurs, try alternating the use of your products.

Can I use Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare™ products if I have eczema?

Any rash should be evaluated by your personal care physician who would then authorize the use of our products; the exception is acne, because our products have OTC medication to help treat and relieve those conditions.

May I safely use Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare™ products if I am allergic to aspirin?

If you suffer from an allergy to aspirin, it is always recommended to consult your personal care physician before using any skincare products.
