Your skin care regime is a bank account. Good product choices are an investment.
Most people are not aware of the differences between Medical Grade skincare and over the counter or “OTC” (which encompasses online, multi-level marketing-think “Arbonne”, and “infomercial”) brands.
OTC products do not have to provide ingredient lists or substantiating clinical data of efficacy. They typically contain trace amounts of active ingredients- think retinol and ascorbic acid-not enough to make any difference to your skin health. They also “sit” on the surface of the skin and do not penetrate to the cellular level. It is only at the cellular level that improvement and correction can be achieved.
Medical Grade skincare is held to a much higher and rigourous standard. The ingredients are active, contain a higher percentage of active ingredients, they are pharmaceutical grade and have a sophisticated delivery system that penetrates deep into the epidermis to the cellular level. Medical Grade products also go through years of testing and analysis. Scientific clinical data must prove their efficacy and safety. Not just a marketing gimmick where “8 of 10 women report an improvement in their skin” Medical Skin care companies employ scientists that provide measurable quantitative data.
Medical Grade products can only be sold by Registered Health Care Professionals or their licensed designates who have had extensive training on skin anatomy and the chemistry behind these products.
In addition, there is regular follow up with patients when they begin on medical grade skincare. We expect to see a reaction from medical grade skincare. It “kickstarts” a lazy, sluggish skin to start working more efficiently and in a more healthy way. It mitigates the effects of sun damage, melasma, acne, texture and large pores, lines, wrinkles and volume loss.
The cost of Medical Grade skincare is comparable (and often times has a more reasonable price point) in cost to OTC products, HOWEVER, with Medical Grade products you will clinically improve the health of your skin, correct existing conditions and prevent future skin health issues. A much better return on your investment wouldn’t you say? www.zoskinhealth.com
