A Few Words on Home Skin Care Products
Do you ever wonder why there are certain companies that have a new “latest and greatest” product in their TV commercials every month or two? The answer is marketing and peak sales. If you spent $150 for one ounce of an exfoliant and it burned your skin, would you keep it? Most people asked would return it or never use it again. So, while these retail companies advertise that they have an alpha-hydroxy or beta-hydroxy acid in their product, they also add a buffer (a base) to take away the sting. What this does to the acid is it changes the pH. Once the pH changes, the acid is completely inactivated and cannot even penetrate the skin. Therefore, the expensive $150 per ounce peeling agent is nothing more than an expensive moisturizer. So, once the company’s profits start to decrease due to dissatisfaction with the product, they release a new product that promises even better results. The truth is that these over the counter products do not work for the most part.
Only medical-grade skin care products will truly penetrate, exfoliate, and nourish the skin. Dr. Mueller recommends Retin-A, toners, alpha and beta hydroxyl acids, hydroquinones, antioxidants and vitamin – C serums as the basis for home lifetime skin care. He will review recommendations with his clients based on their specific needs.
