What is medical grade skin care?

Medical grade skin care involves the application of advanced skin care products that use ingredients backed by scientific research, and that are often prescribed by physicians, to improve the appearance and health of skin. Medical grade skin care products have definite advantages over many mainstream products, and our skin care professionals have the medical knowledge to assess these products’ quality.

Medical grade skin care products are created with high quality ingredients that last longer and are more effective than over-the-counter products. Many medical grade products also have formulas that enhance their delivery and absorption.

Topix Pharmaceuticals skin care

We offer the Topix skin care line, which features active ingredients like salicylic acid, glycolic acid, hyaluronic acid, benzoyl peroxide and retinol. Each of these ingredients has specific uses in improving the skin and can help relieve chronic skin concerns like acne or dry skin. Medical grade skin care products are also appropriate for those simply looking to improve the general appearance of their skin or reduce the signs of aging.

Some products may be more appropriate for certain skin types, but most Topix skin care products are suitable for use on all skin types, including sensitive and acne-prone skin. The Topix skin care line is also a comprehensive skin care line, which means it includes cleansers, sunscreens, serums, moisturizers, eye creams and exfoliants.

Retinol medical grade skin care Topix products

Retinol is made from vitamin A and helps enhance the skin’s production of collagen. Collagen is a protein present in many of the body’s tissues, including the skin. Increased collagen production strengthens the skin, boosts elasticity and can decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Retinol also promotes cell production and turnover, which helps revitalize skin.

Retinol skin care uses

We recommend retinol for a variety of uses. While it is very effective as an anti-aging treatment because of its promotion of collagen production, it also can help treat acne, lessen skin discoloration, and improve the appearance and texture of skin. This is because retinol is an exfoliant that sloughs away damaged skin and helps clean dirt and oil out of pores.

Retinol side effects

High concentrations of retinol can cause skin redness and flaking, especially when a person first starts using it. We often recommend using retinol every other day initially, and then gradually moving to using it daily once the skin is acclimated to the product.

Retinol can also increase the skin’s sensitivity to sunlight, so users should always wear sunscreen and take measures to protect their face from long sun exposure.

  • Replenix RetinolForte Treatment Serum (1x, 2x, 3x, 7.5x, 10x).

Benzoyl peroxide Topix products for acne treatment

Benzoyl peroxide is a medication used to treat acne that works by eliminating the bacteria that can cause inflammatory acne, or deep, red pimples. It also exfoliates the skin, which helps remove excess oil and dirt.

Benzoyl peroxide acne treatment uses & side effects

We offer gels with either 5% or 10% benzoyl peroxide concentrations. Those with sensitive skin or less regular acne flare-ups may want to start with the lower concentration of benzoyl peroxide. Higher percentages are more likely to cause skin dryness, flaking and irritation. Mild stinging during or just after application is also a common side effect of benzoyl peroxide.

Since benzoyl peroxide can have a drying effect, we recommend using it in partnership with a moisturizer and avoiding the use of products that can cause irritation, such as strong astringents, harsh soaps or other topical acne medications. Users should also wear sunscreen while using benzoyl peroxide, as it increases the skin’s sensitivity to sunlight.

Most people see a reduction in the number and severity of pimples within several weeks of using benzoyl peroxide. Not all types of acne respond to benzoyl peroxide treatment, so we recommend that people with chronic acne consult a medical professional about the available skin treatments.

Hyaluronic acid moisturizing skin care Topix products

Hyaluronic acid is a molecule that naturally occurs in the body’s joints and connective tissues. In skin care products, it acts as a moisturizer that works by helping the skin retain water. Hyaluronic acid can retain close to 1,000 times its weight in water, making it one of the most effective moisturizing ingredients available.

Hyaluronic acid moisturizing skin care uses

As the skin ages, it naturally loses the ability to retain moisture. This can lead to skin sagging, wrinkles and dryness. Topical hyaluronic acid products can help address these concerns, as well as irritation related to conditions like eczema. Hyaluronic acid is also an effective moisturizer after other skin care procedures, as it promotes skin healing and creates a protective barrier on the skin’s surface.

Hyaluronic acid side effects

Creams and serums containing hyaluronic acid are appropriate for all skin types. In very rare cases, allergic reactions to hyaluronic acid can occur, which may include skin redness, swelling or irritation.

Hyaluronic acid Topix products offered at HealthFit

  • Enriched Night Cream.
  • Ultra Hydrating Serum.
  • Enriched Eye Repair Cream.
  • RetinolForte Treatment Serum (1x, 2x, 3x, 7.5x, 10x).

Glycolic acid medical grade skin care Topix products

Glycolic acid skin care uses

Glycolic acid is an exfoliant naturally found in dairy products and fruits like pineapple. It is a type of alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that is used to treat acne and reduce signs of aging, including fine lines and wrinkles. This powerful exfoliant removes the top most layer of skin, promoting collagen and elastin production. This can lead to increased skin brightness and a more even texture.

Glycolic acid side effects

Products with glycolic acid are typically safe for all skin types. Users may experience some tingling and redness when applying glycolic acid. Over time, the skin tends to grow more accustomed to glycolic acid and these effects become less common.

Glycolic acid Topix products offered at HealthFit

  • Glycolic Facial Cream.
  • Glycolic 15% Body Lotion.
  • Gly/Sal Pads.
  • Clarifying Brightening Polish.

Salicylic acid exfoliants and acne treatments

Salicylic acid is an effective exfoliant that is often used to treat acne, namely whiteheads and blackheads. It contains the same anti-inflammatory ingredients as aspirin and is anti-bacterial, helping it treat and prevent acne outbreaks.

Salicylic acid skin care uses

For those just starting to use salicylic acid, we recommend using it every other day and gradually working up to daily use. Higher concentrations of salicylic acid are also more likely to cause dryness and irritation, so start with products with a smaller percentage of medication.

Salicylic acid side effects

Those with aspirin allergies should not use salicylic acid. Salicylic may also cause irritation when used with other acne medications, like benzoyl peroxide, so consult with a medical professional before using multiple topical acne treatments.

  • Gly/Sal Pads.
