The Power Behind Medical Grade Skin Care Regimens
President and Founder of Rejuv Medical Aesthetic Clinic and MRogne & Co.
After 20 years in this industry, two things have become very clear for me. 1. We underestimate the change that medical grade skin care products can make in the skin and 2. The power of these products comes from the combination – the regimen – working synergistically to provide true transformation.
Let’s talk #1 first. Why do I say we underestimate the changes that can be made? Throughout the many years of consulting with those wanting to change their skin, I have learned that the expectation is that change can only be made with treatments. Unfortunately, this is because the majority of the products being sold today outside of the physician dispensed channels have taught us that this is as good as it gets from a topical. It’s time to elevate the expectations of our topical products. If we aren’t seeing measurable changes with digital imaging; your products are failing you. Period. You need to raise your expectations of what product can and should do.
On to #2. An army is way more powerful than a single soldier, right? Then why would we expect using one or two products is going to produce the same results as a full regimen? My message to my patients has always been – trust me. It is my job to understand the science and combine these products to give you a wow. I will make sure patients have the most powerful combination – peptides, retinols, glycolics, antioxidants – to give them an army of changemakers for your skin. Sliding one or two medical grade products into a patient’s current regimen will leave them underwhelmed, I promise.
20 years in the medical skin care industry, I have witnessed some amazing transformations utilizing topical only. The key? Create trust between your medical aestheticians and nurses and your patients. I know their friend or coworker probably sells skin care products. I know Ulta is a fun place to shop. Patients trust us to exfoliate, extract, inject and laser you. Trust that my team knows, without a shadow of a doubt, how to prescribe a regimen that will wow. Because transforming the patient’s skin, giving spectacular results – is our greatest joy.
