Why should I choose medical-grade skincare?

Building a skincare routine that works for you begins with asking the right questions. What are the best products for my skin? What order should I apply them in? Why should I choose medical-grade products? Lucky for you, we're here to answer all of these questions; but for now, let's focus on that last one, shall we? Why should you choose medical grade skincare?

At Wonder Skincare, we carry an impressive lineup of skincare brands including SkinCeuticals, SkinMedica, Colorescience, iS Clinical, Tizo, RejudiCare, and VivierSkin. It's clear we think medical-grade is the way to go... let's explore why.

Results backed by science.

These products work, and there's proof! Medical-grade skincare companies have high research standards; they invest in clinical research to guarantee that their products are effective, safe, and support any claims they make about results. Over-the-counter (OTC) products aren't held to these same standards and, since they are rarely supported by a professional consultation, are less likely to achieve a meaningful, noticeable outcome.

High-quality ingredients.

Medical-grade skincare uses high-quality ingredients, at the right concentrations and with patient safety in mind. OTC products typically only contain a fraction of the active ingredients you'll find in medical-grade skincare, which means many people don't achieve the dramatic results they expect or are sold. Most medical-grade products also use specific delivery systems to make sure they penetrate effectively into the deeper layers of the skin to create real change. Funnily enough, most people misunderstand "medical-grade" as "chemical" - which is just not true. Most medical-grade skincare products are composed of safe, clinically understood natural ingredients.

Access to expert advice.

Medical-grade skincare should always be sold under the supervision of trained and licensed professionals, which means you'll always have access to advice from an expert before making your purchase. Having your skin evaluated by an experienced provider—such as a Medical Aesthetician—will ensure you're using the right products in the right way. A medical aesthetician can also work with you over time to periodically adjust your regimen and recommend the products that are suitable for your current needs, aesthetic outcomes, and budget. You can feel confident that you're using the most effective products for your skin.

Long-term cost savings.

I know what you're thinking: "Wait, aren't medical-grade skincare products more expensive?". It might seem that way, but because medical-grade skincare uses more effective ingredients at a higher concentration, less product is typically needed to deliver superior results. This means your products can last longer, and work faster, saving you money and preventing you from wasting products (and money) in the long run.
