Keep Your Skin Healthy – Stay Away from Knock-Off Dermatology Products

La Jolla Medical Grade MoisturizersAt Cosmetic Laser Dermatology in San Diego, your skin is important to us. Our world-renowned expert dermatologists not only use authentic, research-supported, and dermatologist-tested skin care products but we have also participated in numerous clinical trials to research the efficacy of various skin care products. In fact, several of our board-certified dermatologists have created skin care products that have become the gold standard in the treatment of various skin conditions.

Although it seems that the sole difference between a drugstore dermatology product and a medical grade one is price, don't be fooled. Medical grade serums, lotions, creams, and cleansers all contain clinically-proven active ingredients that maintain the health of your skin and keep your appearance radiant and youthful-looking.

If you've been considering a new skin care product because the one you've been using is doing little to address your concerns, read on to learn more about the medical grade dermatology products that will actually correct your skin issues.

Additionally, it may be tempting to purchase skincare treatments online at a discount but, in many cases, these cheaper products are actually knock-offs and do not contain the same effective ingredients. These cheaper options may also contain expired or inactive ingredients that have simply been repackaged as a high-end, medical-grade skin care item. Don't be fooled by deals that seem too good to be true, they probably are!
