Cosmeceuticals: When cosmetics meet medicine

Cosmeceuticals München

The market for beauty and cosmetics is booming. It feels like new products are coming onto the market every week that are supposed to make the skin even firmer, more supple, purer or more beautiful. But the effect of conventional anti-aging creams and serums is often not outstanding. This is because they have too superficial an effect and usually also too little of effective ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, otherwise they would be too expensive. This leads to the fact that usually only a short-term and above all lime improvement of the skin appearance takes place. The long-term effect that most users desire often fails to materialize. It is different with cosmeceuticals. These are medical cosmetics that can penetrate into the deep layers of the skin. What exactly cosmeceuticals are and how we can apply them to you, we explain in this article.

Cosmeceuticals: medical cosmetic active ingredients that go under the skin

The term cosmeceutical is made up of the English words “cosmetic” and “pharmaceutical”. Accordingly, it refers to medical cosmetic products. The active ingredient concentrations of cosmeceuticals are very close to those of pharmaceutical products, because: Here, the highest possible concentration of active ingredients is always used that is permissible before the product is classified as a drug.

The concept behind these special cosmetic products is as simple as it is ingenious: they work like conventional cosmetics, only better and deeper.

Many conventional face creams and the like often contain unencapsulated active ingredients, which means that they usually only have a superficial effect or cannot penetrate to the actual site of action in the skin. In addition, the dosage of active ingredients is usually too low. And this means that only a small effect can be produced.

Cosmeceuticals, on the other hand, are full of highly dosed and active ingredients that have proven their positive effect on the skin in studies. In addition, they exhibit the best purity. The substances and extracts are identical to the skin and ideally coordinated with each other. As they are optimally absorbed by the skin and can thus penetrate into the deep layers of the skin, they are particularly effective.

Cosmeceuticals: with the innovative laser treatment lasemd they unfold their powerful effectiveness even better

In our private practice for dermatology and aesthetics in Munich, we offer you the LaseMD laser treatment, with which we infiltrate the active ingredients of high-quality cosmeceuticals into your skin by means of an ampoule.

And this is how it works: we use a non-ablative fractionated thulium laser to create fine micro-channels in your skin. In the next step, we apply the contents of an ampoule that is perfectly matched to your skin problem or the needs of your skin. With the help of the microchannels, the active ingredients can reach the deep layers of the skin even better and thus achieve even better results.
