Is medical-grade skincare better than what you can buy from a department store?

Updated: May 1

When it comes to your health, you seek advice from your doctor and leave the diagnosing to them.  Why should your approach to skincare be any different? Seeking the advice of a medical professional on how to make your skin healthier, more hydrated, and improve tone and texture makes the most sense.  Skincare products that can only be purchased through a medical professional are called medical-grade skincare.  These are the best products that you can put on your skin.  This is because medical-grade products contain the best ingredients, in the right combinations and strengths.  Medical-grade products are proven by clinical research to provide more consistent, more reliable results. They are formulated with a complex delivery system which allows the ingredients to penetrate deeper layers of the skin, targeting specific problem areas.  Unlike most cosmetic-grade skincare products, a medical-grade skincare regimen is more directed to treat specific issues and is tailored to your individual skin type. Remember, any product that claims to treat all issues with just one cream will generally not treat any issue well enough - the ingredients are not as potent, and your unique needs aren’t taken into account.


For example, when it comes to an anti-aging regimen, our skin’s needs evolve with each decade of life.  At this point in my life, my primary concerns are combating sunspots, wrinkles, and boosting hydration. I use YovinoMD Filler in a Bottle to rehydrate my skin with hyaluronic acid morning and night on damp skin.  At night, I add in YovinoMD Tretinol 0.5% Serum to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Finally, since I’ve lived in Miami and spent a lot of time in the sun, I apply YovinoMD Age Spot Rapid Removal to fade and suppress my melanocytes from forming spots.
