Why Choose FACEOLOGY® Skincare?Published on September 10, 2018 by Raymond Lee
Your skincare choices are much more impactful than you may realize. They are the first defense in the fight against aging, wrinkles, and sun damage. Have you ever thought about why you have chosen the products you have?
Are you struggling with dry skin, acne, fine lines, wrinkles, or loss of elasticity? Do you know what aspects of your unique skin and lifestyle could be causing these issues? Most likely your skin has been exposed to a combination of external and intrinsic factors that contributed to its current condition.
Cosmeceutical skin care products, otherwise known as medical grade, are highly recommended for patients to achieve their optimal skin care goals. Medical grade means they are only available from establishments that operate under a physician’s license. This is important because the FDA regulates skin care products that include corrective ingredients that actually affect the skin. The concentration of active ingredients in over the counter (OTC) skin care products is limited to avoid harming people with the greatest sensitivity to those ingredients. Medical grade skin care products contain a higher concentration of active ingredients because they are only dispensed by medical professionals trained to evaluate whether that concentration is appropriate for each client. The ingredient lists of most OTC products do not contain the ingredient concentrations, which makes it difficult or impossible for the consumer to compare OTC and medical grade products. Depending on your goals and the condition of your skin, OTC products frequently produce much poorer results than the those obtained from a medical grade line.
Medical grade skin care products, such as Dr. Lee’s FACEOLOGY® Skincare line,
are strong enough to reach and correct problems that are deeper in the skin than OTC products can. Active ingredients such as retinol’s (Vitamin A), Vitamins C and E, and glycolic, hyaluronic, or lactic acids are most effective when they reach those deeper skin layers.
The higher cost of medical grade products results from the inclusion of more effective active ingredients at higher concentrations and may make them seem unaffordable. However, less product is typically needed to deliver superior results, so the cost/benefit calculation actually makes medical grade products a better bargain in the long run. The most important factor is to ensure that you actually need and will benefit from the use of a particular ingredient. Otherwise, you are spending money on a product that will not produce the desired results, regardless of the concentration of that ingredient. Consulting a medically trained and licensed skin care specialist such as Dr. Lee and his PA Tina, gives you that assurance.
One cautionary note: Various internet locations offer brand name medical grade skin care products with no medical supervision at significant discounts. These products are often counterfeit, foreign, expired and relabeled with new dates, or obtained from bankrupt skin care facilities with no guarantee that the products were properly stored before being sold to you. Everyone wants to save money but risking your skin care goals for a few dollars is rarely a good bet.
