Skincare Regimen

Do you have a skincare regimen? Do you buy skincare products by perusing Sephora’s aisles, watching TikTok videos, or reading Goop articles?

A proper skincare regimen coupled with medical grade skincare products can have a profound impact on your skin’s health and appearance.

Whether you want to fight the signs of aging or address acne or melasma, a personalized skincare regimen created by a board-certified dermatologist can help.

Schedule a virtual or in-person skincare consultation with New Orleans Aesthetics. During this consultation, you will meet with our highly qualified, double board-certified, and fellowship-trained dermatologist, Dr. Zeena. She will ask you about your skin type—whether it’s oily, dry, or something else—and discuss your skincare goals with you. At the end of your consultation, Dr. Zeena will provide a personalized skincare regimen, complete with a shopping list of ideal products for you to purchase.

Medical-Grade vs. Over-The-Counter Skincare Products

There are a few key differences when it comes to medical-grade skincare versus over the counter.

  1. Medical-grade skincare products have higher concentration of active ingredients than what you can find over the counter.
  2. Most medical-grade companies will use highly stabilized ingredients that last longer and take longer to degrade. Many of them also use more involved mechanisms of absorption to enhance delivery to deeper areas of skin.
  3. Medical-grade skincare products are subject to more thorough and rigorous testing.
  4. Medical-grade skincare products are designed to address specific medical conditions and needs, such as acne or wrinkles.

Some mainstream over-the-counter brands may tout their retinol serum or night cream as an incredible skin-transforming product, but sometimes there are trace amounts of actives surrounded by synthetic additives, a false claim medical-grade brands don’t stand behind.

The bottom line is medical grade skin care products are made of better ingredients, have higher concentration levels of the active ingredient, are subject to more rigorous testing, and most importantly produce better results.
