The only good thing I can say about adult acne is:

“That if your face is red and bumpy, nobody will notice your wrinkles. When it comes to common skin concerns, breakouts trump everything.” Dr. Kathy Fields

Virtual House Call

Using their medical knowledge, Dr. Katie Rodan and Dr. Kathy Fields developed a comprehensive, regimen-based skincare system for treating acne and keeping it under control.

And with the boldness to step out of the clinic and into the television studio. Dr. Rodan and Dr. Fields were able to connect with, educate and empower people suffering from acne.

With the creation of what has become the world’s leading acne system, Dr. Katie Rodan and Dr. Kathy Fields came onto people’s television sets and into their homes, bringing the benefits of dermatology-based skincare that really works. In the process, they forever changed the face of skincare and, most importantly, improved the lives of millions.

The Legacy Begins

Dr. Katie Rodan and Dr. Kathy Fields met during their dermatology residency at Stanford University School of Medicine. There, they heard a compelling message from their mentor, the director of the Dermatology Department: Find your purpose and make a difference or be confined to a career that’s ordinary. Dr. Rodan and Dr. Fields interpreted this message as an imperative:

Go forth and change the rules. And skincare has never been the same since.

When the Doctors started their own practices, they observed that the challenges of adult acne were generally being dismissed by the medical community. Despite the fact so many women struggled with this condition that typically lasted for years and had a profound impact on their self-esteem, little was being done in terms of treatment or education about how to control adult acne.


“As medical residents, our mentor challenged us: “find your purpose and make a difference.” This has been our guiding principle here at Rodan & Fields Dermatologist. Dr. Katie Rodan

Why is a luminous, even-toned, unblemished complexion universally recognized as beautiful and considered such a precious asset?

Because we’re human.

Of course, the most discriminating eye of all is the one that looks back at us in the mirror every day. In high school, we fear being described as having a “great personality” in response to inquiries about our looks. Later in life, we’re taken aback when we’re perceived as looking older than we are. Lack of confidence in our appearance weighs heavily on us early in life and can have a profound impact on our emotional well-being in far too many cases.

That’s what drove Dr. Katie Rodan and Dr. Kathy Fields to enter the field of dermatology and inspired them to bring transformational innovation to the skincare industry.

No matter what color, what culture, what age or what era in time, the discriminating human eye is programmed to be attracted to physical signs of health and fertility. And more than any other physical asset, clear, radiant, healthy-loking skin is what we recognize as beautiful.


“Valuing beauty is an essential part of human nature—a Darwinian struggle for survival.” Nancy Etcoff
