Product Types
There are many different product types readily available for use on the skin, especially the face and décolleté area. It is important to understand the difference between the various skin product types in order to make the best determination of which product type will best fit your client’s needs/desires.

Over-the-Counter Products (OTC’s)
Over-the-Counter Products that reach into the outer layer (stratum corneum layer). most of these products are unable to reach the moisture layer of the skin, thus having effects that last only for a few hours. OTC products will not repair skin damage, only temporarily modify the appearance of the skin. These companies avoid powerful ingredients or strength of ingredients due to the expense in using these and they are mostly focused on advertising and packaging. They produce little change to avoid questions that no one is available to answer.

Professional Products
Professional Products reach deeper than OTC’s and many aestheticians use these types of products. Professional products will nourish, soften and lighten slightly but do not control or stop the regeneration of weakened, dark, melanocytes and wrinkles. Most of these products are unable to reach the lower epidermis or the dermis. They will lightly exfoliate the top skin layer and soften wrinkles not remove them. These companies are focused on temporary/minor results giving them an abundance of return customers due to the temporary effect and the need to use the products often to see results.

Corrective/Therapeutic/Nourishing & Rejuvenating Products
Corrective/therapeutic/nourishing and rejuvenating products are used by licensed aestheticians and Physicians. These products are highly corrective and highly nourishing at the same time. Corrective and nourishing products provide therapeutic strength ingredients that actually reverse the signs of aging. They lessen wrinkles and hyper-pigmentation, as well as promote collagen production with renewed fibroblast activation.
