What is Medical-Grade Skin Care?

Purchasing skin care products at the store where you do your usual shopping is hit or miss at best. These products are required to be safe and contain the listed ingredients, but there are few other standards. Regardless of your age or skin concerns, your skin deserves an upgrade to medical-grade skin care targeted to your needs.

What is Medical-Grade Skin Care? 

Not all skin care products offer the same benefits. Medical-grade skin care products meet higher standards and are designed using the most advanced scientific research. At NorCal Plastic Surgery, we offer Skinceuticals, a line of skin care products designed by an experienced plastic surgeon and skin care expert. These products contain higher levels of active ingredients and go through extensive testing to ensure their quality and effectiveness. 

Reasons to Choose Medical-Grade Skin Care

While medical-grade skin care costs more than most store-bought products, it offers many benefits that cheaper products cannot provide. 

More Concentrated

Medical-grade skin care includes its active ingredients at a much higher concentration than store-bought products that do not contain enough to provide real results. More concentrated products mean better results with less waste. Medical-grade skin care also has to meet higher standards for the quality and sourcing of its ingredients. 

More Effective

People who try medical-grade skin care keep using it because they love the results they achieve. Along with higher concentrations, these products also use more advanced ingredients that are not typically available in store-bought products. They may also use versions of common ingredients like Vitamin C that are more effective than those used in cheap products. 

Trustworthy and Tested

Medical-grade skin care must meet more rigorous standards for quality and performance than lower-quality products. They undergo more extensive laboratory testing for purity and the quality of the ingredients. They also undergo more clinical testing to demonstrate how effective they are at addressing their targeted concerns. 

Boosts Other Treatments

Our skin care products are effective alone, but you can achieve maximum results by combining your daily routine with in-office treatments targeted to your needs. These include facials, injectables, and laser treatments that address issues, including signs of aging, hyperpigmentation, and uneven skin texture.

What Results Will I See With Medical-Grade Skin Care?

Skin care products must be used consistently to achieve results. We recommend that you use any product for at least six weeks before deciding whether it works for you. Most people will start to see improvements in their skin within a month or two of starting their new routine. Improvements continue over time as the benefits accumulate. 

How to Use Medical-Grade Skincare

With so many types of skincare products, you may wonder how to build a routine and apply it properly. Using the right strategy for application can help you make the most out of your routine. 

Tip: Apply Consistently

If you want to see the best results from your routine, use it consistently. Your basic products, such as cleansers and sunscreen, are especially necessary and should not be skipped. 

Tip: Apply Products from Lightest to Heaviest

When applying products like serums and hydration, start with the one with the thinnest consistency. Wait until each product has been absorbed before applying the next one. 

Tip: Use Sunscreen

Sunscreen is unquestionably the most important step in your skincare routine. Even medical-grade skin care cannot work effectively if it has to fight daily sun damage.
