Medical grade skin care products are medical grade for a reason. They can only be sold by trained medical professionals with a vast knowledge of the physiology of the skin. They are considered superior to the products available through a department store or drugstore because of their delivery system. They produce great results fast because they work at the dermis, or middle layer of the skin, where collagen and elastin are contained as well as the basal, or bottom layer of the skin, where new skin cells are produced. Over the counter products or those sold by non-medical personnel work only on the epidermis, or top layer of the skin, where we shed dead skin cells. Eventually, the new skin cells that are created in the basal layer will show up but for true correction of skin care problems, treatment needs to be directed towards the deeper skin layers.
Medical grade skin care products can be quite potent, and that is where we come in. It’s important that you have a licensed, experienced skin care professional design a program and prescribe the appropriate products for you.
Surprisingly, medical grade skin care products are not always more expensive. Keep in mind that these products are comprised of better quality ingredients with higher strength formulations that can penetrate deeper layers of the skin. These medical grade lines also have clinical research to back their efficacy.
