For most of us, having great skin takes some work. But just how much should you invest in your skin? You can make a huge change in your appearance by using the right skin care products – but not all products are created equal. Bottom line: if you want smooth, healthy, youthful skin – an investment in medical-grade skin care products will give you noticeable results. Here’s why:
Stronger Active Ingredients
Medical-grade skin care products contain prescription-strength ingredients which are prescribed and monitored by a medical professional. These products contain higher levels of ingredients such as antioxidants, retinols and peptides. In addition to having a higher concentration of these ingredients, medical-grade skin care products have the purest form of that ingredient. Because of their clinical nature and strength, these skin care lines tend to work more quickly and effectively to treat specific skin issues and improve overall skin health than what can be purchased over-the-counter. Just remember, a fraction of the strength = a fraction of the benefit.
While over-the-counter products are designed to sit on the surface of the skin, medical-grade skin care products have been designed to penetrate through to deeper layers of the skin. And when products reach the epidermis and dermis layers of skin – real change can happen. Significant results are achieved because the products are actually affecting the biological structure of the skin and conditions such as wrinkles and acne scars can be corrected. Because medical-grade products are able to better and more effectively penetrate the skin it usually takes less actual product to achieve the results you desire.
The FDA closely regulates medical-grade skin care products. By law, they must have 99.9 percent pure active ingredients and prove to be both safe and effective. Before a medical-grade skin care product can be used by the public, it must pass clinical trials that provide scientific evidence showing the product is beneficial and that it does what it advertises. This is not the case with over-the-counter cosmetics that are self-regulated by the cosmetics industry.
Investing in medical-grade skin care products can significantly improve existing skin conditions while slowing the aging process and protecting against future damage. You will be less likely to need aggressive treatments in the future if you start properly caring for your skin now.
Because you must obtain these products from a medical professional, you receive customized advice regarding the regimen that’s right for you. Having your skin evaluated by an experienced provider that can recommend the right products for your skin type helps you avoid wasting time and money. This assessment is based on an in-depth knowledge of product lines so you can expect positive results from a product that is recommended specifically for you.
