Cosmeceutical Skin Care

Cosmeceuticals offer something a little more advanced than regular skin care. These products are not just skin care and they are not quite a pharmaceutical. They are incredible tools to give your skin the extra triggers it needs to regenerate, defend and protect itself. Ingredients like retinols, vectorized peptides and amino acids (targeted delivery), and specific anti-oxidants are all created to influence certain receptor sites on specific cells, which will give definitive results.

These types of products are not usually recommended for long-term use. They are usually used as a "cure", which means using the products daily for a specific period of time. Incredible results, and repair, can be achieved with this type of product. They can also be a great way to prepare your skin before having a surgical procedure. In fact, you may even decide to put the surgery on hold for awhile to see what kind of results these products can offer. Having said that, cosmeceuticals can also be used as a great tool to reinforce surgical results and increase their longevity. Whether you are thinking of medical intervention, or not, cosmeceuticals are worth adding to your health and beauty repertoire.
