The Truth About Professional Skin Care Products

When it comes to taking care of your skin, over-the-counter and grocery store skin care products produce results varying from not effective to moderately effective. This is because drugstore treatments for various skin problems are not specifically tailored to your particular skin problems. On the other hand, professional skin care products are specially-formulated by physicians and skin care experts who use ingredients that are medically-proven to be effective.

Professional skin care products are prescribed by a cosmetic dermatologist after the proper examinations have been done on your skin. The dermatologist then chooses the most effective products that will work best together in treating your specific skin problem, along with other treatments that may speed up or improve the effectiveness of these products. Using physician-grade products is also safer than over-the-counter products because they are regularly monitored and regulated by a skin care expert.

Many professional skin care systems are made to address the common concern of women in their 30s and up: signs of aging as seen on the skin. Wrinkles, fine lines, dark under-eye circles, crow’s feet, and age spots are all signs of aging that any woman would like to eliminate. Many new professional products, including topical serums, in-house treatments, and alpha hydroxy acid products have been developed to address these specific problems. A popular professional product known for its effectiveness is Obagi Nu-Derm, a system of treatments that speeds up the process of exfoliating dead skin cells and bringing up the new, healthy ones.

Acne problems are also a target of professional skin care products, the most well-known of which is Accutane, a medication known for strengthening the skin’s ability to replace dead skin cells with new ones. Other professional treatments, such as blue light therapy, are also recommended by physicians for varying degrees of acne and acne-related problems, such as acne scarring. The active ingredients of many of these products include Vitamin C, retinol, and alpha hydroxy acids. Aside from repairing damaged skin and replenishing it with new cells, these products also boost the body’s production of collagen, a natural connective tissue that keeps the skin smooth, supple, and wrinkle-free.

The Obagi System of professional skin care products is one of the most widely-recommended skin care systems worldwide because it has treatments for practically all types of aging and acne problems. La Roche-Posay is another internationally-recognized brand known for its main ingredient, French thermal spring water, which contains selenium, a powerful antioxidant that can work against both dry and oily skin types. Retin-A is also commonly prescribed because of its anti-aging and anti-acne properties. Retin-A is based on retinoic acid and tertinoin, an ingredient that increases collagen production and protects the skin from sun damage.

Other than Obagi, La Roche-Posay, and Retin-A, there is a wide variety of professional skin care products. There is surely that one product that will suitably treat your personal skin problems. Before you head down to the nearest drugstore and purchase that nth bottle of not-so-effective anti-acne facial wash or anti-aging night cream, consider consulting a dermatologist first. The solution to your skin problems may just be a prescription away.
