The Benefits of Medical Grade Skincare


We all want clear, radiant, flawless skin. Unfortunately, common skin conditions like acne and dryness often get in the way of that goal. Drugstore skincare brands can advertise anti-aging creams and acne breakout products all they want, but more often than not they either don’t result in significant changes or they make things worse. 

Now you can say goodbye to spending hundreds of dollars on routines that dont work, and say hello to medical grade skincare. Clinically tested, dermatologist approved products that work. You may be thinking to yourself, how is medical grade skincare different? In this blog, we’ll walk through the biggest differences between medical grade and drugstore skincare, as well as highlighting some of our best sellers.

Medical-grade skincare products are formulated with top-tier, clinically proven ingredients that go beyond the surface-level effects of drugstore equivalents. They often contain higher concentrations of active ingredients such as retinoids, peptides, hyaluronic acid, and antioxidants. These powerful ingredients work together to target specific skin concerns and deliver visible results.

Unlike many over-the-counter products, medical-grade formulas undergo intense testing and scientific research. This ensures their efficacy and safety. Dermatologists and skincare experts carefully select each ingredient, considering its compatibility with various skin types and its ability to address specific skin concerns. The result is a carefully curated product that can produce remarkable transformations.

Our favorite example of this is SkinMedica’s HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator. This moisturizer combines peptides, hyaluronic acid, and vitamin E to immediately boost the skin’s hydration and reverse the signs of aging.

Customization for Your Needs

One of the biggest advantages of medical-grade skincare is its ability to be tailored to a person’s unique skin concerns. Dermatologists and estheticians can assess your skin and recommend products that specifically cater to your needs. Whether you struggle with acne, hyperpigmentation, fine lines, or sensitive skin, medical-grade products can be customized to target your specific issues effectively.

Generic skincare products offer a one-size-fits-all approach. This can in turn have a “one step forward, two steps back” effect. For example, a drugstore breakout gel might clear your acne, but dry out the skin and cause redness in the process. Medical-grade skincare takes into account your skin’s uniqueness, ensuring a more personalized and efficient skincare routine!

The effectiveness of medical-grade skincare is proven through clinical trials. Before these products reach the 

market, they undergo thorough testing to demonstrate their ability to improve their target skin condition. The results from these trials provide concrete evidence of the product’s efficacy, which is why many dermatologists confidently recommend medical-grade skincare to their patients! 

SkinMedica’s TNS Advanced+ Serum visibly improves the appearance of coarse wrinkles, fine lines and sagging skin. It encourages skin cell renewal and supports collagen levels. This reveals a smoother, more radiant and youthful complexion after continued use. TNS Advanced+ Serum’s formula underwent prolonged clinical studies that found:

  • Visible changes in the appearance of wrinkles, skin tone, and texture over as little as 2 weeks of regular use
  • Significant improvements of sagging skin after 8 weeks
  • Users felt increasingly more satisfied with continued use measured over 24 weeks
  • A third-party, validated psychometric scale revealed that users looked up to 6 years younger after 12 weeks of regular use.

Expert Recommendation
