What does “medical grade” mean for skin care products?
Medical grade ingredients are formulated in a medical grade FDA-approved laboratory. They are potent, non-diluted, active ingredients, and penetrate deep into the middle layer of the skin. Medical grade ingredients are 99.99% bacteria-free, while non-medical grade ingredients can harbor up to 70% bacteria. Each ingredient is platinum level and is not diluted with filler.
Medical grade skincare products have higher concentrations of active ingredients than over-the-counter products. The reason why they can have higher concentrations is because those products are being dispensed and overseen by a doctor or physician. Products from a department store are formulated for everyone and anyone, and aren’t being overseen by a doctor, so they can only have small amounts of those active ingredients.
In order to get real results from a skincare product, treatment needs to be directed toward deeper layers of the skin. Over-the-counter products can only work on the epidermis (the outer layer of skin) where the skin cells are starting to shed. Medical grade skincare products can actually penetrate into deeper layers of the skin. These products work all the way down to the dermis (middle layer of skin) where the elastin and collagen are contained, as well as the basal (bottom layer of skin) where new cells are produced.
Medical grade products provide real results. They have been scientifically published in medical journals, and have been proven to work. Medical grade products can actually transform the skin because the ingredients can repair skin at the deep layers where the problems arise. They can have an effect where skin cells are produced and where the elastin and collagen are contained.
