The medical-grade level of any kind of treatment is almost always the most beneficial. Having a toothache and buying an over-the-counter pain reliever will effectively reduce the pain much less than the prescription painkiller a dentist would prescribe. The same notion is true in the case of medical skin care products.
Natural skin care products that contain valuable nutrients have become increasingly popular in recent years. There has also been a stronger effort than ever before by both doctors and scientists specializing in dermatology to produce skin care products that are truly healthy for the skin.
The University of Miami’s Miller School of Medicine has the first cosmetic research center in the United States to be headed by a university. According to the director of cosmetic dermatology at the university, the best way to benefit from medical skin care products is to focus on a specific skin problem and then find the product with the right ingredients in them to address that problem.
There is a whole host of new medical skin care products available now that contain anti-aging compounds. The ZO® Skincare line, for example, has products specially designed to hydrate the skin, protect it from the sun and improve its overall texture and tone.
Other unique products in the ZO® line include cleansers, scrubs, peels and specialized kits. Issues such as acne and hyperpigmentation can be effectively treated with this line of medical skin care products.
What to Look for in Medical Skin Care Products
There are so many products that contain only very small amounts of beneficial extracts and nutrients for marketing purposes only. They don’t make a significant difference in the health of the skin.
Remember that genuine medical skin care products are regulated by the government and contain the right ingredients at the right measure in well-balanced formulations. Just because some products have labels with words such as “natural” or “organic” doesn’t mean it’s the entire truth. Also, since the intentions of the marketers of these products aren’t sincere, the formulations might end up doing more harm than good to many people who use them.
Some popular products that do contain beneficial medical-grade ingredients might not contain enough of an amount to cause any significant improvement. This is when a dermatologist can prescribe or suggest a similar product that contains much higher amounts of the beneficial ingredient.
