Medical grade skincare products effectively treat a multitude of skin concerns including fine lines, hyperpigmentation, acne, and rosacea. Regular use will restore the health of the skin and deliver a radiant glow to the complexion. Taking care of your skin at home is just as important as any cosmetic treatment. In fact, medical grade skincare products will enhance and maintain the results achieved by in-clinic procedures such as injectable treatments, laser treatments, and clinical peels.
Why Medical Grade?
Products found in drugstores and department stores are formulated for the general population, and therefore contain lower amounts of active ingredients due to restrictions imposed by Health Canada.
Pharmaceutical or medical grade products are sold under a physician’s supervision, and are therefore able to contain higher concentrations of active ingredients clinically proven to transform the skin. These products are typically formulated with advanced delivery systms, enabling them to penetrate into the deeper layers of skin where new skin cells are produced. As a result, they are able to deliver faster results than their drugstore counterparts.
The companies that produce medical grade skincare products generally invest more money into research and development rather than advertising, which is why the brands are generally not as well known. Their products are results-driven, and clinical trials are often published in medical journals.
