A lot of people ask us what the difference is between medical grade skincare products, and products from a department store or drugstore. As a Medical Spa in Utah County, we offer an array of medical grade skincare products, and our goal is to educate women and men about the benefits.
Many people are lured to popular “over-the-counter” brands, because of their advertisements, packaging and of course, the price. But what many people don’t know is that while they claim to work, and they may have some benefits, those products can’t fix real skin problems.
There are MANY reasons why we recommend medical grade skincare products, but here are the 3 main reasons why they work better than over-the-counter products:
1. Medical Grade Skincare products have higher concentrations of active ingredients than over-the-counter products do. The reason why they can have higher concentrations is because those products are being dispensed and overseen by a Doctor or Physician. Products from a department store are formulated for everyone and anyone, and aren’t being overseen by a Doctor, so they can only have small amounts of those active ingredients.
2. In order to get real results from a skincare product, treatment needs to be directed toward deeper layers of the skin. Over-the-counter products can only work on the epidermis (the outer layer of skin) where the skin cells are starting to shed. Medical Grade Skincare products can actually penetrate into deeper layers of the skin. These products work all the way down to the dermis (middle layer of skin) where the elastin and collagen are contained, as well as the basal (bottom layer of skin) where new cells are produced.
3. Medical Grade products provide real results! They have been scientifically published in medical journals, and have been proven to work. Medical Grade Products can actually transform the skin because the ingredients can repair skin at the deep layers, where the problems arise and can be where skin cells are produced and where the elastin and collagen are contained.
With Medical Grade Products, you can effectively treat fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, acne, sun spots and many other skin care issues. They have been proven to work, and we have seen the results! For more information about the medical grade products we offer, give us a call at 801-229-2229.
