Professional Skin Care vs. the Beauty Counter

Published on Feb 15th, 2010 by Blog Admin

Many of us are familiar with the allure of the beauty counter and all of its creams, serums, and fancy packaging. It is very easy to get drawn in by all of the exaggerated claims and the celebrity endorsements that the big cosmetic companies use in marketing their skin care products. Our Boston area patients often tell us that they have spent a small fortune on an assortment of products, only to find that they didn’t get the results they had been hoping for.

When it comes to skin care, no one knows better than a dermatologist what your skin needs to look and feel its best. At SkinCare Physicians, we help each of our patients identify their skin concerns, and the combination of treatments and products that can best help them to have healthy, beautiful skin at any age. In many cases, the skin care regimen you and your dermatologist create may be simpler, more effective, and less expensive than the array of products you may tote away from the beauty counter.

We have also developed our own unique product line, SkinCare Prescription, which contains products for a full range of age-related and skin health concerns. We have carefully formulated these products with the highest quality ingredients, carefully chosen to provide the maximum benefit to your skin. Your dermatologist can recommend the product or products that will work best for your skin, as well as how to use them for optimal results.

We also carry several high quality skin care products, designed with skin health in mind. Product lines such as Dermalogica®, SkinCeuticals, Neostrata®, SkinMedica® and Prevage® MD are all formulated by respected dermatologists and skin care professionals and have been used for years with good results by many patients
