Bur first, what is professional skin care?
Before we jump into the products featured in the Best of Dermstore: Professional Set, let’s take a moment to review what, exactly, professional skin care is.
There is no singular definition for professional skin care; however, the term typically refers to skin care lines that are sold in dermatologist offices or medispas and/or from brands that place a special emphasis on research, development and efficacy.
In a recent Dermstore article on how to build a professional skin care routine, Dr. Margo Weishar of Springhouse Dermaesthetics, a Pennsylvania-based practice, said, “In my opinion, what defines professional-level skin care is a commitment to developing novel products with ingredients that are rigorously scientifically tested to produce specific and reproducible results.”
“[Professional] brands often got their start being sold in dermatologists’ offices, so they have been tried and tested,” continued Dr. Donna Hart, MD, board-certified dermatologist at Texas-based Westlake Dermatology. “They are companies that have often devoted a lot of time researching their ingredients and their delivery vehicles to ensure the most effective delivery into their target area of skin, whether it be more superficial for pigment improvement, or deeper for things like collagen promotion or anti-inflammatory effects.”
All the added time and investment on research, development and using high-quality ingredients typically translates to more effective products—so if you want to make a real impact on your skin, professional skin care is likely to give you better results than anything you’d find in the drugstore.
