The Importance of Medical-Grade Skincare

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner: Whether you’re single, partnered up, or somewhere in between, the best kind of love to practice is self-love! Love yourself and the skin you’re in by investing in medical-grade skin care products. Not only will they improve your skin and your confidence, but they also make great last-minute gifts for him or her. 

Why Should I Use Medical-Grade Skin Care?

Unlike products that you can find at drugstores and department stores, medical-grade products are more than just pretty packaging. The process of achieving medical status involves rigorous testing and approval by the FDA. Medical-grade products are highly specialized to treat specific concerns effectively and efficiently, something OTC products are forbidden from claiming. They are created with stabilized ingredients that last longer. In simple terms: The products are proven to work. 

This is because the concentration of active ingredients is greater than what you can find over the counter — thus, only authorized providers like medspas and dermatology offices can distribute them. Because of this, we are highly selective about which products we support and only sell brands we personally use and love. When we make a recommendation, it’s because our medical training allows us to ensure that each product is high-quality, capable of providing the promised results, and, most importantly, safe. 

What’s the Best Medical-grade Product Line?

There are a plethora of great products on the market, and we’re happy to offer recommendations, but when it comes to medical-grade skin care, we’re loyal to our long-term relationship with ZO®.

Created by world-renowned dermatologist Dr. Zein Obagi, ZO® Skin Health relies on science, powerful technologies, and product education. ZO® provides solutions for creating and maintaining healthy skin for anyone regardless of age, ethnicity, or skin type— the products have your entire skin health covered.

What Products Do You Recommend?

Always consult with a board-certified dermatologist before purchasing a new medical-grade product, as certain ones can be harmful to certain skin types. 

With that said, we love helping our patients boost their confidence through skin care. Here are three of our must-haves for anyone looking to improve their relationship with their skin. 

Growth Factor Serum

A growth factor is a protein that stimulates specific tissues and keeps skin cells healthy. As a skincare product, it improves the overall appearance of the skin, helping minimize the appearance of wrinkles and even skin tone. It’s the secret weapon everyone needs. 

Daily Power Defense

A powerhouse of vitamins and exclusive ingredients you won’t find in any other product line, Daily Power Defense is clinically proven to strengthen the skin’s protective barrier while defending against environmental stressors and premature signs of aging. This is the product you’ve been looking for. 

Retinol Skin Brightener 1% 

With a high potency retinol, this best seller promotes exfoliation to eliminate uneven skin tone and improve skin smoothness. It even contains calming ingredients to soothe the skin and help avoid redness and irritation that often comes with retinol use. Ask us if this product is right for you!
