You want your skin to look its best. This is especially true of your facial skin because your face is what the world uses to identify you. If your facial skin is damaged, if you have outbreaks or if you have issues with uneven skin pigmentation, it can affect the way that the world sees you. More importantly, it can affect the way you see yourself. The best way to give your face the care it deserves is by using medical-grade skincare products.
Over-the-counter cosmetics are designed to provide a certain measure of skincare. However, the level of care that they can provide is limited due to a lot of factors, including the fact that over-the-counter products must have low levels of its active ingredient to be safe enough for the general public to use. These same limitations do not exist when talking about medical-grade skincare products. These professional products provide the perfect mix of cosmetic benefits and pharmaceutical benefits. Medical-grade skincare products contain effective levels of ingredients that have been clinically proven to have a positive effect on your skin.
Many medical-grade skincare products require seeing a doctor or a medical spa supervised by a doctor. This is because of their aesthetic and medical benefits. The more you learn about these powerful products, the more likely it is that you will want to try them.
What Is the Difference?
What is the difference between medical-grade products and over-the-counter products? The primary difference is that the concentration of the active ingredient in a medical-grade product is a lot higher than what you would find in something sold over-the-counter. This means that the former has the ability to penetrate underneath the external layers of your skin. Over-the-counter products have not been designed to have the same biological effect on your skin. This is because they are designed to be safe for use by the public as a whole.
This means that when a cosmetic company produces a product, they put just enough of the active ingredient in the product so that they can say their product uses said ingredient but not enough to cause a reaction in some people. Conversely, a medical-strength product has been specially designed to combat whatever skin issue you are experiencing. This means you see much better results.
