ArtMed offers a curated selection of pharmaceutical grade skin care options. After a great deal of evaluation and research we decided to offer three leading brands. Dr. Peirson thoroughly researches and vets ArtMed’s skin care lines to ensure we provide the very best in the market with strong research and development behind it.
Home care is incredibly important for maintaining gains made through the use of lasers and injectables as well as mitigating the effects of solar radiation and time (aging). Adding pharmaceutical level skin care to your aesthetic treatment plan optimizes skin condition and reduces the frequency of interventional care. In clinic we treat, at home you maintain and prevent.
Why should I use pharmaceutical/medical grade skin care?
Pharmaceutical grade skin care is formulated with highly effective proprietary and patented agents typically not found in over-the-counter products. Medical grade skin care products have much higher levels of active ingredients which is why a consultation with a trained and qualified provider is essential. Commonly, these brands are also formulated with proprietary delivery systems to ensure deep delivery of active ingredients greatly enhancing clinical results. While more expensive than OTC skin care lines, pharmaceutical grade skin care is dramatically more effective, more concentrated (a little goes a long way) and designed to work synergistically to optimize results.
ArtMed strives to provide skin care brands manufactured in Canada or the US because we know these manufacturers meet regulatory standards and products have obtained Health Canada approval. We also prefer products made in Canada or the US so we can be assured of proper transport, storage, and short time frames from production to delivery to clients. Like drugs, active skincare pharmaceuticals are highly sensitive to transport and storage conditions; it is critical that products are delivered to clients at the peak of effectiveness. ArtMed aims to provide products free of additives, preservatives, fillers, dyes, parabens or perfumes, and products that are not tested on animals. Environmentally friendly packaging and recycling wherever possible is a priority.
All our products are available in clinic and online through our webstore www.shopartmed.ca. Online purchases can be picked up in clinic or shipped via post.
