Tips from Our Esthetician Jenn
Pharmaceutical vs. Over-the-Counter Products
Many consumers have questions about the difference between products that can be purchased in the store vs. products that are sold in medical offices. It can be very confusing knowing what may be best for your skin and what will actually work. The answer is actually pretty basic. When treating any skin condition or trying to make a change in the skin, it is always important to choose a pharmaceutically formulated product. Unfortunately, the percentages of active ingredients that are allowed to be put in over the counter products simply aren't strong enough to provide a positive result. This is the case for acne, melasma (hormonal pigment), sun damage and aging skin. When trying to achieve results, OTC will never do the trick. Tri-City utilizes a pharmaceutical company to formulate skin specific products, for many different skin types. We use higher percentages of active ingredients to ensure drastic changes in the skin. We recommend a skin consultation to ensure that appropriate products are given to achieve the healthiest skin possible. The skin consultations are complimentary and are helpful in figuring out which products should be used for each specific skin type or skin condition. - Jenn Familo
