The world of skin care can be confusing and misleading. Blinded by fancy packaging and incredulous claims, many of us spend hundreds of dollars on lotions and potions that seem to smell better than they work.
The maintenance of optimal skin health starts with a skin care routine comprised of products containing beneficial ingredients that work to maintain your fresh, firm, and radiant complexion. Medical grade skin care is unique and effective for several reasons. Products tend to contain active ingredients such as Vitamin A (Retinol), Alpha Hydroxy Acids, and Vitamin C in higher percentages and are sold exclusively through physicians’ offices.
Medical grade skin care is known for containing high concentrations of active ingredients that are only carried in dermatology offices and clinics. At McLean Clinic, we start by determining which products will be right for you with a consultation with one of our Skin Care Specialists. Afterwards, recommendations will be made and you will be able to experience and purchase these concentrated products that have the power to provide truly transformative effects for your skin. These products are scientifically proven to work through years of clinical trials and research, and these high quality ingredients at high concentrations are why they are typically priced higher than your average over the counter skin care product. Formulated to penetrate to the deepest layers of your skin to promote healthy cell turnover and stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, you will see a difference in the depth of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scarring and hyperpigmentation, and age spots.
At McLean Clinic, we offer some of the most trusted prescription skin care lines such as the Obagi Nu-Derm System and Zo Skin Health by Dr. Zein Obagi, MD. Medical grade skin care lines such as ZO Skin Health by Zein Obagi, MD are also backed by scientific studies that prove their philosophies and effectiveness. These world class skin care lines have a wide range of product options to fit your particular skin care needs and concerns. They will work effectively to strengthen your skin, as well as increase its resilience to ensure your skin is protected and taken care of.
By following a daily routine that prevents, protects, and corrects, you will help your skin recover from damage in the past and slow down the process of aging moving forward. The medical grade skin care products that we offer are the perfect way to supplement any of our cosmetic procedures completed in-office, encouraging cellular turnover while also stimulating the production of collagen.
Whether you are in your 20s or your 60s, everyone can benefit from medical grade skin care. While cosmetic procedures can greatly reduce the visible signs of aging, proper skin care at home is essential for maintaining your new and improved appearance. Skin care lines available at McLean Clinic such as Obagi Medical and ZO Health are helpful in treating a variety of skin care conditions and concerns.
By following a skin care program of prevention, protection and correction you will repair the damage from the past and slow down the aging process going forward.
