Physician dispensed skincare refers to skin care products available exclusively through your physician’s office. Some of these products require a prescription because the active ingredients trigger biological actions on the skin and the tissues below the surface.
There are a number of benefits of physician dispensed skincare. Most importantly, the ingredients within the products have been clinically proven to help improve your skin through scientific studies. These products are also specifically formulated for certain skin types and to address certain issues such as fine lines, wrinkles, laxity, tone, texture, pigment, scarring, and acne. For example, physician dispensed skincare helps aid in cell turnover and stimulate production of collagen and elastin which slows due to aging.
Ingredients within physician dispensed skincare products are generally higher quality with higher strength and more active ingredients than are available in over the counter retail products. An experienced medical aesthetician will help select products to optimize your aesthetic outcome and protect your aesthetic investment. An ideal skin care regimen cleanses, tones, corrects, moisturizes, protect and targets specific skin health concerns. This regimen along with regular professional peels (which also help hydrate and exfoliate the skin) will rejuvenate and restore the skin over time. (Allergan, 2019).
Lastly, your products may be part of a loyalty rewards program which allows one to earn and redeem points on all of your products and procedures. Physician dispensed skin care is a key component in complementing your Botox and dermal filler treatments and cosmetic surgeries.
