You probably care a great deal about the health of your skin and have a regular skincare routine in place. Maybe you lean toward simple, basic lines or perhaps you lean toward fancier, high-end brands. No matter what you’re doing now, your routine could be greatly enhanced by medical-grade skincare products.
While picking up your favorite over-the-counter product is convenient, these products simply can’t offer the quality and concentration of ingredients you’ll find in medical-grade skincare lines.
The reason for this is that over-the-counter products aren’t approved by the FDA. Therefore, they cannot offer high concentrations of effective ingredients. They must stay within acceptable limits and formulate products that are acceptable to a broad range of consumers.
Conversely, the professional skincare lines available at the office of Nancy Shibayama, MD are based on sound science and are formulated to meet very specific needs. They can contain higher levels of key ingredients because of the fact that they were developed by medical professionals and had gone through rigorous safety trials.
Plus, their use will be overseen and directed by our doctor, ensuring that the product you use will be right for your particular skin type and needs.
It may surprise you to learn that your department store brand cream or serum is unable to completely treat all levels of your skin. Over-the-counter products are only able to reach the surface of your skin. This is insufficient when it comes to lasting and visible results.
Medical-grade skincare products go beyond this first layer, or epidermis. They can reach the dermis, or middle layer, of the skin and the basal (bottom) layer.
By penetrating all three layers, these formulas can actively affect the production of collagen, elastin and new skin cell growth in ways that over-the-counter products simply can’t.
Due to their quality, concentrated ingredients and their enhanced penetration, it makes sense that the results you’ll achieve will be more significant when using medical-grade products.
You can also have peace of mind knowing that these products have been scientifically proven to be effective and are often found on the pages of medical journals.
An added bonus is that our doctor can recommend products that are meant to work together in such a way that you shouldn’t need more than a couple formulas.
No longer will you have to purchase scads of products and go through time-consuming morning and nighttime routines.
