A lot—and that’s why VIDA exclusively offers physician recommended skin care products like Obagi, ZO Skin Health, Epionce, and more.

But what makes physician-grade products so much better? These products are also called cosmeceuticals and some contain prescription-strength ingredients. This makes them better than even luxury skin care products that you might find at upscale shops. When a skin care product is physician grade, it’s required to get FDA approval from controlled trials. Unless a product has FDA approval, you can’t be certain that it’s safe or effective. Over the counter products don’t have to go through this kind of testing, which means there’s no standard for quality or production.
Benefits of Physician Grade Skin Care Products
One of the most common “tricks” manufacturers use when making over the counter skin care products is to dilute them. That’s why it can be dangerous or simply a waste of money to buy what seems to be physician-grade skin care products from non-qualified sources. If the price sounds too good to be true, it usually is. Only shop from sources you trust, like VIDA, to ensure that the product you are buying isn’t diluted or otherwise tampered with.
Stronger active ingredients including peptides, antioxidants, and retinols are what give you the results you want and love. This leads to more noticeable results than those achieved by products you’ll find in stores. Physician grade skin care penetrates deeper into the skin’s surface to interact with the biological makeup of the skin. Plus, physician-grade products are usually recommended by a professional who can customize a regimen based on your skin and goals.
