Why bother with Medical Grade skincare when a treatment can fix my skin??

Ok here's the thing, this is one of the biggest misconceptions in the medical aesthetics industry, and I can understand why. We see all these amazing results from lasers, microneedling etc. But in reality, your skincare should be doing about 80% of the heavy lifting when it comes to getting results. If it's not, it may be time to switch things up.

I've seen this happen a few times with our Radio-Frequency Microneedling (Secret RF). I've had clients who thought using the same old Sephora skincare was ok while doing the Secret RF. Some did a series of 4 treatments and saw minimal changes. On the other hand, when I prep my client's skin with Skinbetter Skincare, they see better results after ONE Secret RF, compared to FOUR treatments and no medical grade skincare.


It all comes down to making sure skin cells are healthy enough to proliferate and behave like we want them too. Sick skin cells will only make more sick skin cells.

What makes sick skin cells?

Sun damage, poor nutrition, stress, poor hydration, no SPF, pollution.... So pretty much the human experience! This is why using medical grade skincare with antioxidants is crucial. The antioxidants calm down the inflammation in the cell which makes it sick.

This is why I love Skinbetter Skincare. The results we see from just using the skincare in only 4 weeks is incredible! See photo below of one of our clients for reference.

What's the difference between drugstore and medical grade skincare?

Medical grade skincare is kind of a loose term. All it means is that the skincare company has white papers and third party testing to prove what they're claiming.

When I prep my clients skin, I typically start them on Alto Defense Serum, Interfuse Face & Neck, Trio Rebalancing Moisturizer and an SPF. The results are chefs kiss! This also decreases downtime after the Secret RF and accelerates their results!

THIS IS ONLY SKINBETTER & ONE SECRET RF! She also had almost no downtime, maybe a few hours! Such a game changer!
