Let’s talk skincare! Investing in your skin can seem costly and like a lot of maintenance but trust us, it is worth it. We all want smooth, flawless, younger looking skin and it starts with our skincare regimen and good skincare products.
You can buy skincare products virtually anywhere these days – your local pharmacy, department stores, Amazon…you name it! There is so much out there; it can be hard to tell what works. While you might get sucked into pretty packaging or gravitate towards wallet-friendly options, these are not the most effective options in the long run. Not all skincare products are created equally. Here are some key differences between medical-grade and cosmetic skincare products.
What is medical-grade skincare?
Medical-grade skincare products contain active ingredients that have been clinically proven to have positive effects on the skin. You can only find medical grade skincare products at dermatology offices or medical rejuvenation med spas like The Shot Shop.
What are the differences Between Medical-Grade and Cosmetic Skincare?
Medical-grade skincare requires extensive clinical testing to prove all efficacy claims while cosmetic products require no testing from the FDA. Medical skincare also consists of a higher percentage of active, quality ingredients and is required to contain 90% pure ingredients vs cosmetic products are only required to include 70% pure ingredients. Medical products are also only available through licensed professionals, like Leah Kenney, PA-C at The Shot Shop.
