Why buy products from doctors instead of stores

Natural cosmetic packaging.blank tube bottle container with green leaves. top view.mock up beauty product concept.If you’ve ever found yourself wandering down the skincare product aisle in your lock drugstore, you know that there is a lot to choose from. Many of these products boast certain ingredients and the ability to clear your skin, but are also a lot cheaper than anything that might be recommended by your dermatologist. Webster, TX area patients who are advised by their dermatologist to consider certain products that might be available in their office may wonder what sets these products apart. The team at Acqua Med Spa is here to clear the myths, and encourage patients to consider the benefits of medical-grade, dermatologist-recommended products.

Why are dermatology products so expensive?

Because they work. When it comes down to it, the products available at the local dermatologist’s office is formulated in a way to be stronger and more effective than anything available over-the-counter at the drugstore. These products cost more because they work, and in the long-run, patients will find themselves spending a lot less on medical-grade products versus throwing their money away trying various over-the-counter alternatives. There’s a reason why patients look to their dermatologist for answers, especially if they are dealing with conditions that have not improved in the hands of the patient themselves.

Why choose dermatology practice products?

There are several reasons we encourage patients to think about dermatologist-recommended products as an investment in their skin. These products are:

  • Formulated with stronger, more concentrated ingredients
  • Tested to ensure they can achieve what the package says they can
  • Proven to work, and are more effective than over-the-counter alternatives
  • Effective at addressing many conditions that might be hard to control such as acne and eczema
  • Approved for use by doctors, as well as the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) for their intended purposes
