Targeted to specific conditions such as wrinkles or acne, medical grade skincare uses ingredients such as vitamin C and retinoids to effect positive changes in your complexion.

Safe and effective skincare for your unique skin issues

Over the past few years, the skincare industry has exploded. Patients want products that hydrate their pores, combat the signs of aging, and improve overall skin quality. Between moisturizers, serums, essences, and masks, the options are almost endless and can be overwhelming. A good skincare routine doesn’t need to be long or complicated. In fact, you may do more harm than good if your skincare routine contains too many different products. Some active ingredients react badly with each other, while others cancel each other out. With medical grade skincare, you get a personalized skincare routine designed to target the exact issues you are experiencing. 

The best ingredients at the best concentrations

Medical grade skincare products must be backed by clinical research studies and are required to contain ingredients that are at least 99% pure. Over-the-counter skin care products are not held to the same standards, which makes their results less reliable. Other benefits of medical grade skincare include:

•    They work on the deeper layers of the skin: While most over-the-counter skincare products only work on the epidermis (the outermost layer of the skin), medical grade skin care penetrates deeper into the skin, where it can make a significant difference. 
•    Targeted to your specific needs: Medical grade skincare is carefully designed to address your needs and treat any condition you may have. 
•    Higher concentrations of active ingredients: While you can get active ingredients in regular skin care products, the concentration is rarely high enough to make a real impact. Medical grade skincare products contain ingredients such as vitamin C, antioxidants, and retinoids at high enough concentrations to really work.

      Is medical grade skincare expensive?

      The prices for medical grade skincare products differ depending on the brands and the active ingredients they contain. However, while medical grade skincare boasts many advantages, it is not always more expensive than regular skincare products. This is due to several reasons. For one, you won’t spend your money on many different products before you find the one that works. Secondly, as the products contain such high concentrations of active ingredients, you use less of the product. Finally, medical grade skincare companies don’t typically spend money on large advertising campaigns. As a result, prices are often comparable to their over-the-counter counterparts.
