You can’t expect to have healthy skin after just one treatment. Here at Amsterdam Cosmetic Clinic, we use a holistic approach; we believe that a combination of treatments, good home care, and a healthy lifestyle will help you to achieve radiant skin. Which is why we always recommend using the right home care products after a treatment.
What are cosmeceuticals?
Cosmeceuticals are not the same as the cosmetic products that you’ll come across in the drugstore. This is due to the percentage of active ingredients in the product. Limits are set for products sold in drugstores, which means that these products have no real effect on your skin. Cosmeceuticals are manufactured on the basis of scientific research. They contain high percentages of active ingredients,
for example, vitamin A, or retinol, vitamin C, glycolic acid, hyaluronic acid, and SPF. You can think of cosmeceuticals as a step between drugstore products and medicines, which are also based on scientific research.
Due to the extensive research into the effects and safety of the cosmeceuticals and the high percentages of expensive ingredients, they are more expensive than drugstore products. Given the results, cosmeceuticals are more than worth it.
Cosmeceuticals keep the skin healthy. SPF and antioxidants protect your skin against sun damage. Sun damage not only ages your skin but can also cause malignant skin conditions such as skin cancer.
Giving your skin a mini spa treatment twice a day will help maintain the results of professional treatments, so you can enjoy your radiant, younger-looking skin even longer!
Only use cosmeceuticals recommended by the skin therapist. She can tell you exactly which products are suitable for your skin and show you how to use them. The use of cosmeceuticals is not always allowed during pregnancy, so make sure you ask a specialist for advice. Contact us for more information or make an appointment to receive personal advice.
