MEDICAL GRADE SKINCARE
Clarify, Brighten, Tighten, Smooth
Establishing a medical grade skincare routine that is customized for your skin type and specific needs is the first step to getting a smooth, radiant and youthful-looking complexion. The key to choosing the right products for your skin is to understand which ingredients to look for, which to avoid and in what
order to use each one.
Our team of skincare professionals will help you design a medical grade skincare regimen to achieve
your goals at home.
What Is Medical Grade Skincare?
Medical grade skincare, also known as cosmeceuticals, differs from mainstream skincare because it has been clinically proven for a specific purpose. Most medical grade skincare products also contain highly-stabilized, high-quality ingredients, making them more effective than many other products on the market.
Still, you need to make sure you are using the correct medical grade products for your skin type and skincare needs to maximize results and minimize side effects like dryness, redness and flaking.
Ithaca Medical Aesthetics we offer several medical grade skincare lines to meet the unique needs of our clients:

Virtually everyone is a good candidate for a personalized medical grade skincare regimen. Using high-quality skincare products that have been custom-tailored to your needs can help to enhance the results of in-office treatments like BOTOX®, facial fillers, non-surgical facelifts and more, as well as help you maintain a glowing complexion at home.
Medical grade skincare can also help those with chronic skin conditions such as acne, rosacea, eczema and others better manage their symptoms.
How Medical Grade Skincare Works
Medical grade skincare is formulated to deliver highly-stabilized ingredients to your skin, where it can be absorbed and reach deeper layers. There, different ingredients can effectively perform different functions, such as stimulating collagen, replenishing the skin barrier, reducing inflammation, providing free radical protection and much more.
One of our skincare professionals will work with you to develop a customized skincare regimen that uses products and ingredients that are appropriate for your skin type, existing conditions or symptoms and cosmetic goals.
Obagi Nu-Derm® Systems

Expect to give your new medical grade skincare routine at least 3 to 4 weeks before you may begin to see noticeable results. It is crucial that you continue to use the products in your new regimen, even if you do not yet see results on the surface.
Once you do see results from your at-home skincare regimen, they should be easy to maintain by continuing to use each product regularly as instructed by your skincare professional. Results from cosmeceuticals can be enhanced when combined with in-office skincare treatments and good lifestyle habits.
