Medical-grade skincare products require a consultation.
Today most of us jump online and trawl the internet for skincare advice, which more often than not is provided by bloggers, beauty influencers or celebrities who are not skincare professionals. We then make the purchase of overpriced over the counter skincare products that are designed to provide a measure of benefit to the widest group of people without causing anyone to experience negative side effects. In order to accomplish this, cosmetic companies include enough of the active ingredients in their products to allow them to legally say they have them, but not so much that it could cause an adverse reaction.
Due to the small amounts of active ingredients, cosmetic products mainly treat the outermost layer of skin. While this may provide some benefit for those who have minor skin issues, it’s not ideal for those that require more intense care, or those seeking to support their skin against the effects of aging.
This is why most experience lackluster results from these cosmetic, over-the-counter products. To get the results you seek, and to get the best skin of your like, you need medical-grade skin care products capable of impacting the skin at a biological level.
Medical-grade skincare products, also known as “cosmeceuticals,” contain high concentrations of active ingredients proven to affect skin at a biological level and are formulated to penetrate below the top layers of skin, to enhance cell turn over, increase collagen and elastin production, and address specific skin concerns such as acne, wrinkles, cellulite, scars, etc.
Knowing this, your first instinct may be to opt for one of these straightaway, due to the very high levels of active ingredients, medical-grade skincare products are not typically must be sold under the guidance of a licensed physician or esthetician and thus a consultation is required. This is a part of what makes medical-grade skin care products so effective, your professional we will be working with you to ensure that you are using the product in the right way and getting the best results.
Because medical-grade skin care products are significantly more potent and pure than OTC products, they work more quickly and effectively to treat specific skin issues and enhance overall skin health. This means that not only are they cosmetic products, but they are also medications.
