Topical Rosacea Treatments
New Treatment Topics
The sale of alleged anti-aging skin care products generates approximately 30 billion dollars in revenue each year in the US alone.
However experts generally agree that the majority of these products are not effective in practice or theory.
Prime reasons why anti-aging products aren't effective include low concentrations of active ingredients and production based on theoretically flawed assumptions about how skin works.
The latter seems deliberate for the most part as these products are usually marketed for lifestyle rather than professional medical audiences.
Small amounts of sun-induced injury accrue on a daily basis, irrespective of season, cloud coverage or temperature, therefore daily use is necessary to derive worthwhile benefits.
Antioxidants such as silymarin are found in all of The Clinic's products and once absorbed do not wash or wear off for a period of time (up to four days), however daily use is still optimal in maintaining the best reservoir of protection.
One caveat worth noting is that the presence of paraben preservatives in sunscreens or skin care can increase photodamage.
