Over the years, our staff has answered many frequently asked questions regarding myths about Medical Grade Skin Care and today we would to offer the myths and their answers with you for a better understanding of why Medical Grade Skin Care is the best choice when choosing an Anti Aging Skin Care line or product for your skin:

Myth: Good advice can come from anyone. Fact: Nobody understands skin like a skin care physician. Only a skin care physician, such as a dermatologist or a plastic surgeon, has been through medical school and residency training completely focused on skin and its care. You can’t get that kind of expertise at the drug store or cosmetics counter.

Myth: All product claims and promises are true. Fact: Only claims made by prescription products are reviewed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). In a recent survey, nearly 70% of women did not know that claims made by skin care products sold in drug stores and department stores are not regulated, evaluated or verified by a governmental agency like the FDA.

Myth: No pain, no gain. Fact: Irritation doesn’t equate to results. Many very effective products and ingredients can work well – without irritation, dryness or peeling. In fact, glycolic acid, a gold-standard anti-aging ingredient that pulls moisture into the skin, can be partially neutralized to maximize results and minimize irritation.

Myth: All antioxidants are created equally. Fact: Antioxidant effectiveness is quantified by an environmental protection factor (EPF), which works similarly to the sun protection factor (SPF) that rates sunscreen strength. In an EPF study, the super-potent antioxidant idebenone scored the highest of five antioxidants with an EPF of 95 out of a possible 100.

Myth: It doesn’t matter where you buy your products. Fact: Physician-dispensed products – which are products offered only through a doctor’s office – contain active ingredients at a higher percentage than over-thecounter products. Plus, there’s the added benefit of a physician’s guidance.
