There are so many over-the-counter skin care products available that when you go to a large department store, skin care usually takes up an entire section. With so many products available for sale, it can become easy to get overwhelmed. Every single product promises to make your skin look smoother, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and give you a rejuvenated look.
However, the truth of the matter is that the vast majority of over-the-counter skin care products can only offer limited results. If you truly want to improve the way that your skin looks and feels, you may want to look into medical-grade skin care products.
Medical-grade skin care products are also known as cosmeceuticals. This term is a combination of the word pharmaceuticals and cosmetics. The reason why this term is used is because medical-grade products can only be prescribed by a medical professional. There are a lot of reasons why using medical-grade skin care products is far superior to using what you get over-the-counter.
The first reason is that medical-grade skin care products have a level of their active ingredient that is a lot higher than what you can buy over-the-counter. The reason for this is that when a large company produces products to be sold over-the-counter, their goal is to produce a product that can be used by the vast majority of their potential customers. If they were to add too much of an active ingredient, some percentage of potential customers could have a negative reaction to their product, and that is the last thing that they want. So they have found a balance between adding just enough of the active ingredient to produce a minimal result and not adding too much in order to avoid causing skin irritation.
However, since medical-grade skin care products are prescribed by a medical professional, they can have a higher level of an active ingredient that can actually treat the issue you have with your skin. This is because the product you are buying is tailored to your condition. Since these products are stronger, they are able to penetrate deeper into the skin. They are actually able to reach the layers of your skin where your skin conditions start.
Another reason why using medical-grade skin care products is a good idea is because they are prescribed by a medical professional. When a trained professional prescribes something to you, they do it after examining your skin and determining the condition that you have. When you purchase an over-the-counter skin care product, you are trying to diagnose something yourself. As a result, you may buy a product that is not exactly what you need. Our medical team is going to show you how to use the product, and they are going to follow up with you to make sure that you are using the product correctly.
In every single way, using medical-grade skin care products is superior to buying what you can get over-the-counter.
