Working in the beauty industry, including various department stores for about 9 years, I was exposed to an array of skin care lines with endless promises to give me “amazing” skin with their “skin perfecting” creams.

Being someone who has struggled with their own skin issues since my mid -twenties, I was suckered into these promises spending anywhere from $5 on a moisturizer to nearly $200. Come to find nothing was working! At times I felt like my skin was getting worse. I became afraid of trying any skincare to the point where I chose, dare I say…. not wearing a daily moisturizer and sunscreen in fear that it would break me out.

I started working for a med/spa dermatology clinic and was introduced to medical grade skincare; I figured I’d give this skincare thing one last shot. Starting with basic suggestions from our medical estheticians, I started seeing dramatic improvements in my skin within less than a month. I can now proudly say I found something that really works and for the first time in several years I no longer feel insecure about my skin.

Here is my quick break down of what makes medical skincare superior to products that can be purchased over-the-counter at the grocery, pharmacy or department store.

Pharmaceutical grade products are only available through doctor offices. The reason for this is because these products are developed through clinical research with amounts of active ingredients that are much higher than what over-the-counter products are legally able to contain. These clinical ingredients penetrate deeper into the skin (the Dermis to be exact) which equals better results! In conclusion medical grade products are worth investing in. They are higher in quality, safer, and proven to work.

So, whether you are interested in correcting; hyperpigmentation, melasma, fine lines & wrinkles, hydration, sun spots and much more.
