When you fork over your hard-earned money on skin care products, you want something that is really going to do the thing that it claims to do. For example, if you buy skin care products that claim to fight the premature signs of aging, you want to see a reduction in the wrinkles and fine lines you have on your face. Or if you buy a product at the grocery store that claims to eliminate your acne, you want it to really work. Over-the-counter skin care products are a big business. People want to have beautiful and blemish-free skin. However, the frustrating thing about purchasing over-the-counter skin care products is that they are not all that effective. If you want to truly see results, consider medical skin care.
Why do we say that over-the-counter skin care products are not all that effective? Because they need to be safe for the general public to use. When a person purchases an over-the-counter skin care product, they have diagnosed their own skin issue. So, a person may say that they have oily skin when that really may not be the truth. When they go out and purchase an over-the-counter skin care product and look for something that says that it is designed for oily skin, the manufacturer is not able to really include a huge amount of the active ingredient in order to make it safe for individuals who have oily skin, dry skin or any other type of skin out there. So, when you purchase over-the-counter skin care products, you are getting something that contains some active ingredients, but it is good for the general public, not specifically for your particular skin care needs.
Medical skin care products are great for individuals who have specific skin care goals. If you are looking to treat acne, if you want to fight the premature signs of aging or if you have a condition like rosacea or hyperpigmentation, medical skin care products can help you. They are designed to achieve a specific goal. This means that they will contain a higher amount of an active ingredient in order to help individuals who are battling with the exact same skin issues that you have.
Using medical skin care products means that you will receive a prescription from our dermatologist or other similar medical professional. So, someone who has the training and the qualifications to really diagnose your skin issue is going to be the one who examines your skin and then prescribes a certain type of skin care product. There is no self-diagnosing.
