What Is Medical Grade Skincare?

aliangé skincare masque


The appearance and health of our skin can affect how we live and feel every single day. So we know it’s absolutely essential to understand the structure, key functions and health of our skin.


So, what is medical grade skincare?

Medical grade skincare is formulated and tested by medical professionals in the skincare industry, using active ingredients. This means that these formulas have been extensively tested in clinical research to guarantee the benefits of these products and to determine that they really do work and offer better results. Because of the strong clinical evidence and the medical training that these skincare professionals go through, you can be confident that these products are high-quality and are safe for use.


What are active ingredients?

When you look on the back of a bottle and it says it contains an active ingredient, that means the chemical or molecule in that product is doing what the product says it’s supposed to do. These active ingredients are added to treat specific skin concerns and are clinically tested to guarantee effectiveness.


What are some common active ingredients and what conditions do they treat?

Dr Alison Jamieson uses active ingredients in her skincare products including Microencapsulate Retinol, Advanced Peptides and Amino Acids. We encapsulate potent Vitamin A in micro shells which break upon contact with the skin releasing fresh potent retinol which repairs the cellular structure and provides the ultimate in anti-ageing defences. We also utilise advanced peptides such as the Jellyfish Hexapeptide to deliver rich anti-ageing and skin repair benefits that help combat wrinkles, pigmentation, acne and pore size on a biological level.


How does medical grade skincare differ from regular skincare products found in stores?

Medical grade skincare differs from products found in mainstream stores as these non-medical formulas usually have restrictions on the ingredients and pH levels, which medical-grade skincare does not have. As medical grade skincare is formulated and prescribed by doctors, you’re able to use a higher concentration of active ingredients which will produce more noticeable results. Although in-active ingredients are not completely ineffective, they can be used for cleansing and moisturising the skin, they cannot be guaranteed to treat specific skin conditions.


How does aliangé skincare utilise clinically tested active skincare ingredients?


Along with the active ingredients listed above, aliangé skincare also uses Natural Botanicals & Vitamins to enhance the active ingredients. We utilise natural botanicals such as the Australian Kangaroo Apple extract which is known for its lightening and anti-inflammatory properties, Persian Silk Tree to treat dark circles around the eyes, Niacinamide which boosts skin health and Jojoba bean which provides deep cleansing to the skin. We also use cross-linked Hyaluronic Acid with the ability to hold up to 10 times its weight in water to deliver deep dermis hydration far superior to conventional Hyaluronic Acid, leaving your skin feeling fresh and plump.


How will medical grade skincare benefit my lifestyle?


- Provides more noticeable results than non-active skincare products sold in stores

- Penetrates into the skin’s deeper layers, affecting the biological structure and creating longer lasting effects

- With regular use, active ingredients can increase skin cell turnover and collagen production to promote plumpness and elasticity of the skin, preventing the occurrence of fine lines and wrinkles


There are so many benefits to incorporating a regular skincare regime into your life!
