WHAT IS IT:
An unofficial term for cosmetics that use technology and high doses of ingredients that have been proven to help manage ageing or skin conditions.
Cosmeceutical home care can transform many skin types, improve skin conditions and help manage the ageing process. Cosmeceuticals can't replace prescription or medicated creams and gels, but they are an important part of maintaining skin health and youth.
They are prescribed by aesthetic doctors, dermatologists, aestheticians and other skin experts and are sold in clinics and skin centres.
Ingredients with proven actions include, retinoids, vitamins, peptides, fruits acids, hyaluronic acid, growth factors, antioxidants and anti-inflammatories. Expert assessment of each unique skin and its requirements is essential to create the best treatment plan and results.
Products can be purchased during appointments or, alternately, prearranged collection or delivery are possible.
