What’s the difference? There are many popular “over-the-counter” brands, which are known because of advertising and packaging budgets. The problem is most of the time these products can’t live up to their promises.
How do medical skincare products differ?
Here are three good reasons why medical skincare products work much better:
1. Higher concentration of active ingredients. Medical grade products contain more active ingredients than over the counter lines because the formulation is being overeen by a physician. Department or drugstore products are created for the general public, and only have small amounts of the necessary active ingredients to fight skin problems.
2. Real results. Treatment needs to reach the deeper skin layers. Drugstore/department store products only reach the outer layer or epidermis. Medical grade skincare products are able to penetrate further into the deeper layers f the skin, such as the dermis or middle layer. This is where elastin and collagen are found, and where new cells are produced.
3. Based on science. Medical grade skin treatments have been scientifically formulated and provide real results. They contain ingredients to repair skin at the cellular level, and encourage the production of elastin and collagen, which are necessary for younger, fresher looking skin.
In order to effectively treat wrinkles, fine lines, hyperpigmentation, sun damage, acne and other skin care issues, medical grade skin care products are necessary.
