MEDICAL-GRADE SKIN CARE AT SOUTHERN DERMATOLOGY
Our selection of skin care products has been carefully chosen by our dermatologists. The medical-grade products we carry are professional strength and backed by clinical studies. Medical-grade products typically use stabilized ingredients that last longer, degrade more slowly, and have mechanisms which allow the skin to absorb the essential elements of the product more readily.
The FDA divides skincare products into two distinct categories: cosmetic and pharmaceutical. Cosmetic (over the counter) skin care is defined as ingredients “applied” to the human body for cleansing and beautifying purposes. Pharmaceutical (medical) skin care is defined as affecting the structure and function of the skin.
Medical-grade products contain prescription ingredients to treat different skin indications such as sun damage, hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, and rosacea.
Our dermatologists and estheticians will help you select the products that will best address your concerns while also factoring in your skin type.
