As your largest organ and a first line of defense against harmful germs and traumatic injuries, your skin takes a real beating in its quest to protect you. Ensuring your skin stays healthy isn’t just about looking good — it’s about maintaining that important barrier and protecting your health.
While some over-the-counter products can help with simple tasks, like reducing dryness or itching, most of these products can’t provide the deep protection your skin needs to stay healthy. That’s where medical-grade skincare products can help.
Medical-grade skincare products are designed to support skin health, featuring ingredients tailored to your skin’s unique needs. The key to getting the most benefits is to work with a provider who knows your skin type, medical history, and lifestyle factors, so your skincare regimen can be customized for your unique needs.
At Sanctuary Cosmetic Center, Soheila Rostami, MD, FAAO, FAACS, and Joseph K. Davidson, MD, FACS, offer an array of medical-grade skincare products along with custom-tailored skincare therapies based on each individual’s skin health profile. Here’s why they recommend medical-grade skincare products for patients at their offices in McLean and Dulles, Virginia.
When it comes to selecting products for your own skin, it’s easy to get confused. Skincare products can be found at nearly every store, from drugstores to department stores to general retailers to grocery stores, filling shelves with literally hundreds of options to choose from.
Having a lot of options might seem like a good thing — but actually, it can make choosing products a lot more difficult. What’s more, every product contains a different list of ingredients, and not all of those ingredients are good for your skin. In fact, many ingredients in off-the-shelf skincare products can irritate skin or worsen an existing problem.
Medical-grade skincare products are designed by dermatologists and other skincare experts and based on the “science of skin.” These products feature ingredients that have proven their worth in skincare while eliminating substances that can be harmful or irritating.
Medical-grade skincare offers plenty of benefits, but one of the biggest advantages involves the quality of ingredients. These products use active ingredients clinically proven to benefit skin and at higher concentrations than those found in over-the-counter products.
Another key benefit: While off-the-shelf products can affect the most superficial layers of your skin, medical-grade products are designed to penetrate the deeper layers, where most damage occurs. As a result, medical-grade skincare products don’t just improve how your skin looks and feels — they also improve your skin’s health.
Medical-grade skincare products support a custom approach to skincare, with products developed specifically for specific issues, like fine lines, sagging skin, acne, rosacea, and other concerns. Medical-grade skincare products, used on their own or in combination with medical treatments or our line of signature facials, offer tailored therapy designed for long-term effectiveness and beautiful results.
Finally, because of their added strength and concentrated formulas, medical-grade skincare products are only available through your doctor. That’s a big benefit because it means your skin care regimen will be based on the unique challenges your skin faces, including factors like your age, gender, lifestyle, and overall health. And of course, you’ll have ongoing medical support and guidance from our team.
Like every part of your body, your skin changes as you age, which means its needs change, too. Medical-grade skincare products recommended by our team ensure your skin gets what it needs to stay healthy and look its best at every stage of life.
