Why Should I Choose Medical-Grade Skin Care Products Instead of Over-the-Counter Products?
The skin is the largest organ in the body and often the one we spend the most money on over the years. Attempting to rejuvenate facial skin with the use of over-the-counter products is not very successful because they generally only affect the outer, superficial layers of the skin. Medical skin care products are more effective, generally because they contain higher concentrations of the active ingredients and reach the deeper layers of the skin. This results in a more uniform improvement.
Ounce for ounce, this means that medical skin-care products are more expensive. However, when you consider their effectiveness or ability to solve many of your skin care problems, there can be no doubt that medical products offer a better value.
Skin Care Options for Younger, Revitalized Skin
At Spa Bella, our skin care products will keep your skin vibrant, healthy and youthful looking. The right combination of products for you will depend on your unique skin type, goals and treatment areas.
When it comes to showing your age, nothing is more sensitive than your eyes. Damage is not only caused by environmental factors, but from physical factors like squinting and smiling. Also, many non-protective sunglasses can cause premature aging by allowing the sun’s harmful rays access to the delicate eye area.
Firming the skin around your eyes, stimulating collagen production, and relaxing the muscles in the eye region can help diminish the fine lines and wrinkles in this area. Often, these lines are the first tell-tale signs of aging. A hyaluronic acid-based moisturizer will plump up the area. Our Spa Bella anti-aging eye products contain antioxidants, hydroxy acids, a special vitamin C compound, and a peptide that inhibits neurotransmitters to eye muscles in order to address all of your eye area concerns.
Protecting your face from the sun’s UVA and UVB rays is a crucial part of your skin care regimen. It will help prevent skin cancer, as well as pigmentation problems and wrinkles that arise from sun exposure. In addition, sun exposure slows down the production of collagen and elastin, two proteins that support the structure and elasticity of your skin. This can cause your skin to stretch and sag.
The best line of defense is to wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher every day. Unfortunately, many over-the-counter sunscreen products will deliver less-than-optimal results:
- They are often thick and oily, which makes using them with cosmetics a challenge
- They often don’t contain zinc, the most effective ingredient to protect you against the sun’s harmful rays, in a cosmetically acceptable form
At Spa Bella, our medical-grade facial sunscreen products are chemical free, fragrance free and contain zinc. They dry to a clear, silky, matte finish, making them ideal for everyday use.
Retinoids are the ultimate multi taskers. These products help prevent the buildup of dead skin cells, diminish the look of wrinkles and lighten sun spots. Our medical-grade retinoid skin care products can take some getting used to, so every-other-day usage is initially recommended. Once your skin adjusts to the vitamin A treatment, you can begin using it daily.
