How to Improve Your Skin With Prescription Skincare Products

Non-surgical by Enhance Plastic Surgery

Having great skin is one of the most impactful ways to have a youthful appearance and to maintain smooth and glowing skin. The truth is good skin and good skincare go hand-in-hand, and it’s important to invest in good products if you want to protect your skincare against the elements and ageing.

As you get older, a good skincare regimen doesn’t just allow you to moisturise, tone and enhance your skin, it should also help you address your skincare issues like complexion, acne, scars and dullness. One of the beauty secrets of the rich and famous is the type of skincare products they use. This is where prescription skincare products come in.

What Is Prescription Skincare?

Prescription skincare is a product that, as the name suggests, requires you to get a prescription by a skincare specialist, dermatologist or doctor. The products contain a higher concentration of active ingredients than their mainstream counterparts, making them more powerful and purer and they can work at a deeper level in aiding good skin, or helping address common skincare concerns.

A dermatologist can sit down with you and discuss your skincare concerns and the goals you have and then help you determine the best product, the best formulation and the best regimen to help enhance and improve your skin. What is the difference between mainstream cosmetics and prescription skincare products? What concerns can these formulas address? Read on for information on this.

Very often standard beauty products that come off the shelf aren’t able to solve these skincare issues because:

  • They are more generalised to sell to a large selection of people
  • Unlike prescription skincare, mainstream skincare formulas don’t contain medical-grade ingredients that can truly target a particular issue.
  • In more commercial formulations of products, the active ingredients are more diluted making them less impactful
  • Medical grade cosmetics can actually last longer because of the purity of their formulas, often making them more cost-effective in the long-run.

Dark Circles Treatment

Dark circles under or around the eyes are a very common skincare issue that requires really good products for them to start to decrease and for the under-eye area to start to brighten. Many people try home remedies and drugstore eye creams without any real results. For better results, something more powerful would get you the desired outcome a lot faster.

Wrinkles and Fine Lines

As you age, your skin starts to lose its hydration and elasticity which leads to fine lines and wrinkles. While mainstream skincare products can help to control the development of wrinkles, they won’t be able to completely address the issue. Prescription grade anti-wrinkle anti-aging skincare contains higher potency ingredients which allows it to penetrate the skin and really make changes by hydrating and restoring the skin.


If you have an issue like acne scars, or a scar from a surgical procedure, a mainstream cosmetic treatment won’t be effective to quickly and sufficiently fade the scars. Usually, products from a normal drugstore take too long to work, without making any real impact. Prescription skincare contains ingredients that can accelerate the healing of the scar and start to reduce the appearance of it.

Do you have skincare concerns, and no matter what retail product you try, no matter the cost or the brand name, they just don’t go away? You have bottles on bottles of just about every formulation, product and solution but none of those products seems to be yielding any results. Consider adding prescription skincare to your regimen.
