When making changes to your skin, there’s always a hierarchy of treatment options you should follow;
- Improved skincare that contain ingredients necessary for your desired outcome
- Seeing a qualified esthetician to help improve your overall skin condition
- Going to a dermatologist for a prescription like Retin A etc
- Super over the counter cosmeceuticals
- Lasers, chemical peels etc
I would say that seeing a derm and the cosmeceuticals are interchangeable since not everyone has insurance, and even when you do, Retin A can be $100+. At that point, it’s all about getting some products behind you with a little more umph to make a visible correction in your skin.
Murad Intensive Resurfacing Peel is in the super cosmeceuticals category tackling fine lines and wrinkles along with overall skin dullness and texture. About 10 minutes 3 times a week will make your skin look more alive and less wrinkled. I would compare the results to microdermabrasion or a light chemical peel- but for less than you’d spend doing either.
