MEDICAL GRADE SKINCARE
Medical grade skincare products effectively treat a multitude of skin concerns including fine lines, hyperpigmentation, acne, and rosacea. Regular use will restore the health of the skin and deliver a radiant glow to the complexion.
Taking care of your skin at home is just as important as any beauty or cosmetic treatment. In fact, medical grade skincare products will enhance and maintain the results achieved by in-clinic procedures such as injectable treatments, laser treatments, and clinical peels.
WHY MEDICAL GRADE?
Products found in drugstores and department stores are formulated for the general population, and therefore contain lower amounts of active ingredients due to restrictions imposed by Health Canada.
Pharmaceutical or medical grade products are sold under a physician’s supervision, and are therefore able to contain higher concentrations of active ingredients clinically proven to transform the skin.They penetrate the deeper layers of the skin and claim to deliver wonderful effects faster compared to OTC products. For example, a medical grade chemical peel with salicylic acid will, in theory, be a more potent treatment for acne or fine lines than most OTC brands sold in stores.
This is why they are highly recommended by dermatologists and other beauty professionals. These brands are the go-to treatment you’ll most likely come home with after a consultation with skincare professionals because they are regulated by the FDA and can be counted on their claims and safety guarantee.
Medical Grade vs Over The Counter Products
Backed by Research - Reputable brands that produce medical grade skincare products generally invest more money into research and development rather than advertising, which is perhaps why they are lesser known vs over the counter skincare products. Nonetheless, medical grade products are results-driven and go through rigorous research, testing, and clinical trials conducted by professional skincare experts that are often published in peer-reviewed medical journals.
The Best Active Ingredients - Medical grade products often contain premium active ingredients similar to pharmaceutical drugs that can only be accessed with a prescription from your doctor. The most common examples include retinol, a type of retinoid derived from vitamin A and one of the typical ingredients frequently used in formulating cosmetic and skincare treatment products for enhancing blemishes, fine lines, & wrinkles.
Better Forrmulation and User Experience - Medical grade brands offer better formulation. Aside from delivering impressive beauty benefits, you’ll notice that they have a different treatment experience. They are not tacky or sticky on the skin after application. They often have a nice subtle scent that’s not overpoweringly chemical or artificial. They have less risks of skin irritation.
Beter Value for Money - If you are eager to manage or treat acne and other skin problems, investing in premium skincare brands will be a smart and cost-effective strategy that gives you bigger savings in the long haul. Due to the potency of their formulation, a little goes a long way, lasting a long time even if you incorporate it into your everyday skincare routine.

Here is a list of our Frequently Asked Questions. If you have any other questions or concerns, our experts will provide you will all the information you need.
Aren't Medical Grade Skincare Products Expensive?
The price of medical grade skincare products is comparable to that of over the counter products—or less, in many cases. Incorporating them into your daily skincare routine is more cost-effective. Because they contain active quality ingredients at higher concentrations, you’ll typically use less product and see results faster, thus eliminating the need for frequent repeat purchases. With proper and regular use, medical grade products can also help you maintain the effects of your cosmetic treatments and achieve a youthful and beautiful skin.
What is the best product to use on my skin?
There are many medical grade skincare products available that can help treat a number of conditions, such as wrinkles, brown spots or sun spots, facial redness, and other skin blemishes . The good news is that there are countless medical grade products out there that can work for you.
Depending on your needs, you can create a personalized skincare arsenal with anti-aging benefits using, for example, a serum that can effectively penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin. There are also spot corrector treatments that claim to treat visible blemishes, fine lines, and wrinkles.
I tried medical grade beforeand it irritated my skin. Why did that happen?
Because medical grade skin care products are much stronger than commercially available products, they can irritate the skin if used incorrectly. Applying too much product, or too often, is usually what causes irritation. It is recommended that you introduce any new medical grade product into your routine gradually, so that your skin becomes acclimated. This will greatly reduce or eliminate any inflammation, allowing you to experience results. If you are unsure of how to use your medical grade products, please contact us so that we can assist you in booking a free consultation with our dermatologist or skincare professional.
What is the most important medical grade product?
If you want to prioritize, the first product you should consider is a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher. Daily sun protection is, by far, the most important step in any morning skincare regimen. Without sun protection, your skin will continue to age and you will never experience optimal results from any other skincare product. Better yet, consult a dermatologist or a skincare professional to learn which products will deliver the most benefits, according to your skin type and concern you want to specifically address.
When can I expect to see results from my skincare?
As consumers, we are always seeking that miracle product that will transform our skin immediately. This unrealistic expectation often compels us to keep purchasing products, only to feel defeated when we don’t achieve the instant results we were hoping for. Although some medical grade skincare products can produce initial results in as little as two weeks, the appropriate amount of time to commit to a new skincare product is about two months, once the skin has had an opportunity to turn over. This is typically when a patient can expect to see true results, which will continue to improve with ongoing use of the product.
Why is yourr product return policy?
At Rejuvenus Clinic, we stand by all of the skin care products we recommend. If for some reason you are unhappy with your purchase, you may return it for a refund. Opened products must be returned within 7 days. Unopened products must be returned within 15 days.
