Medical Grade Skincare
At The University of Kansas Health System, we offer some of the most effective medical grade skincare products available. Our skincare experts can help you learn more about how you might benefit from medical grade skincare products and treatments, or answer any questions you have about what treatment combinations and product lines we offer.
What is medical grade skincare?
The effects of aging, along with harsh environmental factors, greatly impact your skin’s health and surface appearance. A quality skincare regimen not only enhances and protects your skin’s appearance, it also prevents future damage.
Medical grade skincare products contain higher concentrations of active ingredients than what you can buy over the counter. These products use prescription-strength ingredients to promote your overall skin health while helping you look and feel your best.
Who can benefit from medical grade skincare?
Anyone looking for an advanced skincare regimen can benefit from medical grade skin care products. Our skincare experts can guide you along the right path by specifically selecting which products will work best for your skin type.
Medical grade skincare products can also be used in combination with nonsurgical aesthetic procedures to enhance your results.
How does medical grade skincare work?
Pharmaceutical grade skincare products are formulated to reach the hypodermis, or deepest layer of skin. These products contain powerful ingredients that are clinically researched to be safe and effective. Medical grade skincare not only protects your skin from harmful elements, it also encourages cellular regeneration and promotes healthy skin cells from the inside out. By targeting different areas of skin health, like supporting essential skin proteins and exfoliating dead, dull surface cells, medical grade skincare products promote a vibrant, radiant complexion.
Benefits and risks of medical grade skincare
Through a combination of active prescription-strength ingredients, medical grade skin care products can treat:
- Age spots
- Fine lines or wrinkles
- Skin laxity
- Sun damage
Possible risks include a negative reaction with your skin, such as redness, dryness, stinging or mild burning. Be sure to let your aesthetic professional know if you experience any side effects, and discontinue use if symptoms continue or worsen.
What happens during medical grade skincare treatments?
To truly benefit from a skincare treatment, you will want to combine your customized at-home regimen with in-office treatments targeted at specific problem areas. For example, chemical peels are one of the most effective ways to restore your skin’s health, while a home care regimen of medical grade skin products can help you maintain those results longer.
Our facial treatments use pharmaceutical-grade products customized by our team to suit your unique complexion needs. Enhancing, protecting and rejuvenating are key components to consider when taking on such an advanced at-home skincare regimen. After several uses, you should begin to see smoother and more evenly toned skin.
As with any procedure, your skincare regimen is unique to you. Your specialist will prescribe the perfect combination of topical creams and aesthetic treatments so you receive the full benefits of medical grade skin care.
