If you’re like many of my patients, you’re always on the lookout for effective skin products that deliver on their promises. But typical over-the-counter retail skin care products make exaggerated claims about their effectiveness. In a recent report, the FDA even required a major cosmetics manufacturer to change its advertising claims or withdraw certain products from the market.
Ineffective skin care products cost you money and don’t give you the outcome you’re looking for. So what do you do for skin care that really works? The answer is professional grade products available through your physician. Your return on investment will improve dramatically when you choose these products. Here’s why: Professional skin care products are powerful; they penetrate the epidermis, renewing and repairing the dermis, or deeper level of the skin. That’s where visible, lasting change in the appearance of your skin will be achieved.
Medical-grade products contain strong active ingredients that are regulated by the FDA. These ingredients—absent or not available in high concentrations in over-the-counter products—have been scientifically tested and proven to be effective.
We’re happy to offer an outstanding line of professional skin care products, most of which are available only through physicians. We can develop a customized skin care program designed to meet your specific needs. Here are the lines we carry:
- SkinMedica TNS products deliver the anti-aging effects that over-the-counter skin care products claim to offer. Combining naturally occurring antioxidants with other nourishing ingredients, their products can reverse skin damage while preventing further lines and wrinkles.
- Prescription-strength Obagi skin care products boost cellular regeneration at the deepest levels of the skin. That means damaged skin will actually begin to “act” and look like younger skin.
- Jane Iredale mineral cosmetics are specially formulated to provide a high level of sun protection while offering skin-smoothing effects that produce a youthful glow.
At Movassaghi Plastic Surgery and Ziba Medical Spa, we work with patients to identify their skin care needs, then match them with the products that will provide the best results. We’re pleased with the outcomes our patients have achieved by using these effective skin products as part of their daily routine.
