In today’s high-tech world, skin care products in the aesthetic industry are ever changing to meet the demands of savvy consumers. With a plethora of options available, how do you begin to decide which products offer the best value, and more importantly – which products will best fit your needs?
A common question often posed is “What is the difference between the skin care products I purchase at the drug store or department store versus what you sell?” First and foremost, the products we carry can only be sold in a physician’s office because they are formulated to change or make a difference in the structure of the skin. Without defaming or discounting the products you can purchase at your local CVS, Rite Aid or Dillards, they can only provide so much corrective and preventive measures as they are not as closely regulated. These products are not formulated to completely correct the skin. Although they may be packaged beautifully and smell divine, the results they produce may be less than desired.
Medical-grade skin care products and treatments can only be found in a physician’s office. These products are formulated to correct the skin on a cellular level. Products of this caliber must be monitored closely by a professional to help guide you how to utilize the product, for how long, and what to anticipate during your transition. These professionals are well-trained and educated on skin care, how to improve the integrity of the skin, and how to handle potential reactions. Understanding the full value of medical-grade skin care products and services is an awakening for most people. If this is a first time endeavor, you can expect to be introduced to different forms of Vitamin A topical treatments, hydroquinone, sunscreen, lash growth stimulators and more. These products can help correct discoloration, acne, wrinkles, fine lines, texture, tone and brilliance of the skin. Having a reliable, trustworthy and highly skilled professional who works closely with a physician to help you achieve beautiful, flawless skin is a priceless investment.
