Where Can I Purchase Medical Grade Skincare Products?
It’s very important to purchase your skincare products from an authorized spa, or dermatologist. If you’re going to purchase products online, you have to make sure that it’s a trusted source, that is an approved stockist. Counterfeit skincare is as common as a fake luxury handbag. Counterfeit products can really damage your skin. The main difference between medical-grade skincare products is the quality of the ingredients. Counterfeit products can contain filler ingredients, or potentially harmful ingredients (like glue) that can cause real damage to your skin, instead of treating your skin concerns.
