Medical grade skincare
What is medical-grade skincare?
Medical-grade skincare is the term for specific products that are made to a higher standard than over-the-counter products. They are specially formulated to provide benefits that are both aesthetic and medicinal.
They are called ‘cosmeceuticals’ – a blend of cosmetics and pharmaceuticals – because their active ingredients have been clinically proven to have a positive effect on skin.
Medical-grade skincare products should only be provided by a qualified and experienced aesthetic practitioner, following a thorough consultation and assessment.
The advantages of medical-grade skincare
Medical-grade skincare that penetrates the skin more efficiently can also prove to be better value, since you may need to use less of the product to achieve improved results.
Over-the-counter products do not have the same biological effect as cosmeceuticals, because they are unable to penetrate the upper layers of skin in the same way.
At Dr MediSpa, the skincare products we use for acne treatments are the iS Clinical, Obagi and Tebiskin ranges.
