When you go to the drugstore or you go to a department store and you purchase skin care products, you’re hoping that you’re going to purchase a product that will adequately address the skin care issue that you have. And while you may be able to find a product that can mildly address some of the issues that you have, the amount of benefits you’re going to receive will pale in comparison to the benefits received by using medical-grade skin care products.
This is because medical-grade skin care products contain a level of an active ingredient that has been shown to have a positive effect on a person’s skin. This is not necessarily the case when we are talking about over-the-counter skin care products. When you purchase over-the-counter products, basically what you’re doing is purchasing a product that has been formulated not for your specific issue, but instead to treat the widest group possible from the general population. Their goal is to provide a sufficient amount of care so that the company that markets it can tell the public that their product treats said issue. However, a careful balance is made to not include too much of the active ingredient so that it might negatively impact a portion of the general public.
This is not what happens with medical-grade skin care products. These products are seen as medicine. So, they are formulated with a higher level of an active ingredient, and they are formulated to address the specific skin care issue that you have. A good portion of medical-grade skin care products is sold by dermatologists. They are designed to have both aesthetic and medical benefits. There are a lot of benefits that come from using these products as opposed to using over-the-counter products.
In addition to knowing that you are getting a product that is of the highest quality, when you purchase a medical-grade skin care product, you do so under the supervision of our dermatologist. This means that you know for sure that the product you are purchasing is the one that is right for the issue that you have. This type of guarantee does not exist when you just purchase something over-the-counter.
Medical-grade skin care products are designed to penetrate your skin as opposed to simply sitting on the outermost layer of your skin. Many individuals who have had some serious skin issues have been able to find relief from their issues when they sought medical-grade skin care at Adams Dermatology via the Skin Type Solutions™ System.
