When it comes to skincare products, we are bombarded with many claims and promises, often leaving us with more questions than answers. Do cosmetic products really deliver the same results as prescribed skin clinic cosmedics? Are drugstore products as effective? The simple answer… no. At Harbour Skin Clinic, we use a range of tested and trusted skincare cosmedics brands including OCosmedics, which actively target cellular optimisation and function, without harming your skin in the process.
Cosmetic products can range from $5.00 to $500.00 per product, are packaged in gorgeous bottles and are more often than not, endorsed by a paid five star celebrity. These cosmetic products feel beautiful because they are overloaded with silicone, smell great because they have added fragrance and colour and only contain a small amount of active ingredients helping your skin. These products are sold over the counter and many of these brands use high levels of silica, mineral oil, petroleum, parabens, SLS …just to name a few.
So, you might be asking yourself, what’s the cosmedical difference? Are cosmedics claims false too? Cosmedics is the acknowledgement of medical science and its entry into skin treatment. Through medical research scientists have discovered, developed and engineered active ingredients, peptides and antioxidants that have the ability to retain and regain normal skin function and cell optimization.
Furthermore, the discovery of biomimetic bases and peptides as well as the encapsulation of active ingredients ensures optimum delivery of these ingredients at cellular level. Unlike cosmetic based products, cosmedics requires a skin expert to tailor a personal skin health prescription for every skin, this will ensure the skin has a chance to acclimatise to the active ingredients and avoid sensitisation.
If that isn’t enough, cosmedics have been developed to combat the five major causes of aging. Without an active approach these five causes and their domino effect could be left untreated and ultimately lead to deterioration of skin health, resulting in compromised skin function, cellular activity and visible aging.
In the past skincare has been more about relaxation than skin correction, simply because technology was not as advanced or results driven as it is now.
