What is Medical-Grade Skincare?
The skincare products that you buy at a department store or skincare boutique contain ingredients, such as hyaluronic acid, that are known to improve skin, so why don’t these products work? The reason is that over-the-counter skincare, even the high-end expensive products, don’t have high enough levels of the necessary ingredients. Medical-grade skincare, on the other hand, is by prescription only. These are FDA-approved products that have the formulations that you need to see real results.
How Much Does Medical-Grade Skincare Cost?
At OptimalSelf MD, we understand that you want to feel good about yourself, yet cost may be a primary consideration. We recommend that you schedule a consultation as a first step. Phone consultations are complimentary, and we charge a fee for an in-office consultation. As part of the consultation, we explain the price of your skincare products, and payment can be made by cash, check, and credit card. We also work with CareCredit® and Alphaeon® to offer our patients financing options.
What Skin Types Can Use Medical-Grade Skincare?
Our medical grade skincare is perfect for any skin type or condition, including extremely sensitive skin and acne-prone skin. Our esthetician examines your skin to determine what is needed to boost its health, and she recommends a package of skincare products from EltaMD®, Revision Skincare®, and SkinMedica®, the top brands in medical-grade skincare.
How Do I Use Medical-Grade Skincare?
The best part of using medical-grade skincare is that no additional effort is needed. In fact, your at-home skincare regimen may be simplified. Our esthetician explains how to use each product and the order in which to use the products. She will also help you understand which products should only be used in the morning and at night, as well as those to use throughout the day.
How Long Will It Take Me to See Results from Medical-Grade Skincare Products?
The first time that you use our skincare products, your skin will feel softer and more supple. Correcting problems, such as acne, dryness, wrinkles, lines, and uneven skin tone takes some time as your skin needs to heal and balance. Use the products as directed, and you will see a gradual improvement week by week.
Can I Schedule a Consultation for Medical-Grade Skincare?
We recommend that you schedule a consultation for our medical-grade skincare products. We offer 15-minute phone consultations for complimentary so you can discuss the basics with our esthetician. You can then schedule an in-office consultation for him to examine your skin and recommend the best product package. We do charge a fee for in-office consultations.
