As part of our West Dermatology Family of Practices, our mission is to provide you with the highest quality care and service at all times. This is why we always steer our patients toward clinical-grade skincare brands with products that are able to penetrate deep into the skin’s deeper layers and produce quality results. We choose to have a wide variety of brands at hand to allow us to tailor our suggestions to each individual patients’ needs. As an added bonus, our brands’ education programs can make purchasing decisions easier for patients and clinics alike.
Any type of product that is designated as “medical-grade” must pass FDA inspection through double-bind and controlled trials. These products can’t be marketed without first proven safe and effective. Over-the-counter products, on the other hand, are self-regulated by the cosmetics industry. There’s no consistent standard in place for their production. The active ingredients in medical-grade products can be stronger than those sold over the counter. These products contain higher levels of ingredients such as antioxidants, retinol, and peptides. Because of their clinical nature and strength, our skincare lines tend to provide more noticeable results than most of our counterparts sold in stores.
So what makes our skincare products stand apart?
Our products often offer a better value for our patients as they usually take less actual product to achieve the results our patients desire. Our patients can save money by receiving a product that’s specifically suited to their needs, rather than experimenting with several different kinds, hoping to find one that works. These products can give the anti-aging benefits and protection our patients desire. Take a look at each of our partner brands and what they have to offer, so you can make an informed decision about which ones are best for you.
*Important Consumer Warning*
Here at West, we offer a 100% authenticity guarantee on all of our skincare products. Many counterfeit medical-grade skincare products have been found on unauthorized retailer websites. These fake products are considered unsafe and should not be used. It can be very difficult to determine whether or not a product is counterfeit or not, this is why it is so important to always purchase your medical-grade products from an authorized retailer, like West Dermatology.
