The market is flooded with different skincare products, meaning that you must be skeptical as a consumer before trying out a product. Identifying safe and effective products may be challenging as some may exacerbate your skin disease. The Prescription Skin Care Woodbury products are safe and effective for all skin types, including sensitive ones.
What is prescription skincare?
Many skincare products in the market promise to give you smooth glowing. However, if you have skin concerns that don’t respond to over-the-counter skin care products, you may need professional help. Prescription medications contain the same ingredients as those in over-the-counter products but in concentrated dosages to improve your skin appearance and treat medical conditions like eczema.
Dermatologists dispense prescription skincare products with years of experience, guaranteeing excellent and long-lasting results. Dr. Layliev and his team at COSMEDOCTOR offer safe and effective medications that address stubborn skin issues such as rosacea, melasma, acne, and psoriasis.
How can you differentiate between OTC and prescribed products?
Prescription products and OTC focus on rectifying your skin imperfections, but prescription products have higher chances of success than OTC products. You can only access prescribed products after a comprehensive medical exam to determine the underlying medical condition, unlike OTC products which don’t need a doctor’s prescription.
Additionally, prescription skincare products have undergone clinical trials with the FDA, while the OTC products are only FDA approved but are not tested. Prescribed medications have an advantage over OTC products. The physician prescribing the medicine knows the expected results and guarantees that the prescribed product is safe and efficient.
What skin concerns can prescription products address?
Everyone is at risk of experiencing skin problems, leading to itchiness, inflammation, rashes, and scars in severe cases. Some skin problems may be due to lifestyle factors, while others may be genetic. Some of the common skin diseases are alopecia areata, skin cancer, vitiligo, Raynaud’s phenomenon, and acne. You can treat some of these diseases with OTC products, but some require medical intervention, such as skin cancer. The professionals at COSMEDOCTOR also have the expertise to treat rare genetic skin diseases like necrobiosis lipoidica, chromhidrosis, and argyria.
Do prescription products cause any side effects?
Most skincare products cause side effects, and prescribed treatments are no exceptions. But Dr. Layliev offers treatments with mild side effects which resolve on their own within a short period. Some of the side effects include:
- Elevated breakouts after applying
- Redness on your face
- Increased sensitivity to sunlight
- Dry or flaky skin at the area of concern
If these side effects worsen or do not disappear within a few days, contact Dr. Layliev, who may examine you and adjust your skin treatment plan. Inform your doctor immediately if you experience these extreme side effects:
- Signs of skin infection like swelling or oozing
Smooth, glowing skin makes you feel more confident in yourself. Call Dr. Layliev or schedule an appointment online to begin your treatment if you struggle with skin problems.
