What can we say: We are HUGE fans of medical-grade skincare products at A360. From Restorsea Pro and Revision Skincare to Skinbetter Science and our very own AESTHETICS 360° skincare, these effective products are the choice of our talented aestheticians — and many of you on the A-list! So, why opt for medical-grade skincare? Let us count the ways …
They Are Medically Regulated: Yes, active ingredients in medical-grade skincare products are subject to medical regulation. This means they have been proven safe and effective by myriad studies and clinical trials. In contrast, over-the-counter and department store skincare products are largely self-regulated, resulting in inconsistent safety and efficacy in products. In addition, department store brands, for example, pay exorbitant fees to present a counter in department stores. Those fees are then built into the pricing of the products — as well as the designer name and fancy packaging (that we all know goes right in the garbage!) Those pricy brands (along with over-the-counter brands) are not subject to the same government oversight as the medical-grade skincare arena. Worth the price and the hype? We don’t think so.
They Are More Effective. Period: Think the ingredients in your OTC or department store skincare products offer the same efficacy as those in medical-grade products? As we mentioned above, think again: Many retail manufacturers use inexpensive methods of mass production to maintain cost. The percentage of effective ingredients in non-medical grade products is legally limited and much lower than medical grade, yielding a difference in efficacy. While medical-grade skincare might come with a slightly higher price tag, it has been developed to a higher standard with quality ingredients to provide effective results. Higher-potency products plus professional guidance to ensure you get the right products equals a recipe for long-term success. Investing in medical grade skincare may significantly improve existing skin issues, slow the skin-aging process and protect against future damage.
They Are Recommended By A Professional — Specifically for You: With medical-grade products, you have the ongoing expertise of an experienced skin expert to consult with and partner with you on your skin’s journey. And, you’ll receive that professional’s recommendations before you make a purchase. And that is a huge plus. Having your skin evaluated by an experienced provider who can recommend the right products helps you avoid wasting time and money on products that aren’t right for your skin type. Moreover, a knowledgeable skincare professional will periodically adjust your products according to your changing skin conditions, so you can feel confident that you are always getting the most effective products — even as your needs or goals change. When skincare is no longer a hit-or-miss guessing game, you’re likely to get better results and save money.
