Question: Is there a difference between over-the-counter skincare lines and medical grade skincare lines? I have been using over-the-counter products for years, but I am ready to start taking better care of my skin. Is this something that would help?
Answer: This is a very common question among the patients that come to my practice. As a result of this, I have created my own private label skincare line called MD Beauty Labs Skincare by Daniela Dadurian, MD.
There are two reasons why over-the-counter skin care products are not designed to be stronger. The first reason is that they are designed to be used by the general population. So, if there is a skincare product that is designed to treat oily skin, it is made to be just strong enough to provide some relief from oily skin, but not so strong that it would negatively affect a person who had very sensitive skin.
The second reason is that over-the-counter skin care products allow the patient to self-diagnose their skin problem. So a person might believe that their skin is oily, as opposed to having a medical professional look at their skin and diagnose they have oily skin. If over-the-counter skincare products were stronger, patients would misdiagnose their skin conditions and risk hurting themselves.
MD Beauty Labs skincare line by Daniela Dadurian, MD is developed using the highest-quality, pharmaceutical-grade ingredients to provide patients with system-based, results-driven, cosmetically elegant formulations. All products are created and dermatologist-tested to deliver safe, superior results in treating numerous conditions and patient skin types. They’re FDA-tested and approved in a registered laboratory and manufacturing facility, which follows the most rigorous pharmaceutical manufacturing standards to ensure safe and effective formulations.
