Advanced medical-grade skin care (otherwise known as cosmeceuticals) represent a group of skin products with active ingredients that can improve the function and appearance of the skin. This includes preventing premature ageing, treating acne, reducing pigmentation, improving fine lines and increasing clarity and luminosity of the skin.
They contain active ingredients at high concentrations to ensure excellent results. These products fall into the area between over the counter cosmetics (OTCs) and prescription-only medicines (POMs). As with all things in life, there are good products and not so good products.
Interestingly, cosmeceuticals not only help reverse the effects of ultraviolet radiation (termed ‘photorejuvenation’) but they are also play a crucial role in protecting your skin against skin cancer (termed ‘immunophotoprotection’ or ‘immunoprotection’).
Optimal skin care and skin health need not be complicated and when used as a long-term strategy it can help treat major skin conditions. In particular, Dr Deignan and The Regenia Clinic are big advocates of advanced skin care products which are of premium quality and have been developed with a scientific approach by identifying key features required for skin health.
