What is Medical Grade Skincare?

Medical grade skincare boasts a higher concentration of active ingredients to penetrate the skin and deliver therapeutic benefits more effectively. Because of their potency, you won't be able to find medical grade skincare products at a drugstore or department store. They are only available at physician-directed facilities under the supervision of a licensed doctor, like our dermatology practice, to protect the general safety of consumers.

Pharmaceutical grade skincare can transform your skin more dramatically, proven by medical research and development conducted by the manufacturer of each line. In fact, the results of clinical trials on products can often be found in distinguished medical journals.

Why Pharmaceutical Grade Skincare Could Be a Good Choice for You

  • Products are more potent.
    Because these products contain more active ingredients, they are more potent and penetrate the skin more deeply. That means they are more powerful and can give you more dramatic improvement. Their potency is also why they're only available at a physician-directed medical clinic. A licensed medical doctor, like one of our board-certified dermatologists, will assess your skin so they can recommend which products would be most suitable for you.
  • Medical grade skincare is backed by research.
    These products need to clinically prove what they claim to do, as outlined by the FDA and Health Canada. Manufacturers can't just make a claim without evidence. This means that you can be confident knowing that these products actually do what they say.
