If you’re on your own aesthetic journey, you may have heard that medical-grade skin care is more effective than other, cheaper counterparts. While the convenience of drugstore skin care may be tempting, it can come at a cost to your skin. You can give your skin the love and care it deserves by ditching the cheap alternatives and opting for high-quality, well-researched, results-driven products.
Let’s get into the specific differences that make medical grade worth it:
Medical-grade skin care is made with patients — not profits — in mind.
While the skin care you’ll find at the drugstore is mass-produced and mass-marketed for the purpose of attracting as many customers as possible, it’s definitely not for everyone. You can find moisturizers, facial cleansers and toners from massive brands who don’t necessarily specialize in skin care making bold promises on their packaging. Medical-grade skin care, on the other hand, is conceptualized, researched and created by doctors who are passionate about providing high-quality products backed by science and highly respected by the FDA.
Medical-grade skin care is worth the investment.
The price of drugstore products might draw you in, but the quality leaves much to be desired. The truth is medical-grade lines offer more potent formulations with fresher ingredients and therefore more reliable results. Cheap products are often lower quality, and even if they do contain sought-after ingredients, it’s usually a very small amount. When you shop from high-quality skin care brands, you’re getting powerful formulas that will end up lasting you much longer.
Medical grade allows for deeper delivery.
Another drawback with cheaper skin care is its inability to effectively treat multiple layers of skin. These products usually only help with surface concerns, if anything. Medical-grade skin care is specifically formulated to penetrate through the outer layers of skin, reaching into the dermis to revitalize skin from within and even regenerate collagen. As a result, you’ll notice more thorough improvements to your skin health and appearance.
