Cosmeceuticals (medical grade skincare) represent the marriage of cosmetics and pharmaceuticals. They are cosmetic products with biologically active ingredients purporting to have medical or drug-like benefits and allowing for more effective treatment of specific skin conditions. Many patients suffering from aging skin respond well to these specialized skincare products which have proven effective used in combination with other treatment regimens.
Cosmeceuticals contain bioactive ingredients including vitamins, enzymes, antioxidants, ceramides, minerals, herbs, and essential oils. They intend to enhance the health and beauty of the skin by altering its structure. Because these prescription skin care products go beyond coloring, they improve function, encouraging collagen growth and making the skin healthier.
Another benefit of cosmeceuticals is that they contain key active ingredients that help prevent and diminish the signs of aging. Some signs include wrinkles, fine lines, and age spots. The same ingredients may be found in small amounts in various cosmetics, but cosmeceuticals contain larger percentages of these ingredients. Therefore boosting their ability to create real changes in the skin.
