The main difference between medical-grade skin care brands that we use and recommend in clinic and products you can buy in boots are the quality and the quantity of the active ingredients. The percentages we can use are substantially higher than things sold over the counter.

So even if you are using a high street brand vitamin C serum, the chances of you getting enough of the ingredient, and the ingredient in the most stable form (which is how it needs to be to actually penetrate the skin) are very slim.

So often the prices of medical-grade skin care are higher than that of other brands, but it really is a case of you get what you pay for.

Would you rather buy 10 products from boots which you are unsure on their ingredients or effect on the skin, or buy one highly effective product which will have a better lasting effect for your skin, recommended by a professional?
