Why use specialist skin products?
When you buy over the counter remedies in the pharmacy without a prescription, there’s a limit to how much active ingredient a product can contain. This is because it has to be safe enough for anybody to apply by themselves. That’s why prescription goods are more effective. You can’t get hold of them until your condition has been assessed by a skincare professional and deemed suitable for you. Here at skinInspire, our highly experienced nurse prescriber, Annie, can supply you with prescription products for leading skincare brands; Revitalash, Obagi Medical and Skinade.
What can they treat?
Revitalash is a leading brand of eyebrow and eyelash-related products. Lashes and brows can be strengthened and nourished for cosmetic effect and to restore health. Skinade products improve the condition of your skin from the inside out. They are taken orally, rather than applied externally, and can boost collagen to refresh and rejuvenate your skin. For more specific skin conditions, you might want to find out more about the Obagi skincare range. They can treat pigmentation problems, the symptoms of rosacea, and very dry skin to name just a few. Let our experienced practitioner assess your needs during the consultation in order to prescribe the best possible course of action.
Note: Skincare products may only be prescribed after a face to face consultation. Follow-up appointments will also be necessary to assess your treatment.
Is it safe to take skincare supplements orally?
You should never automatically trust skincare products you’ve bought online without consulting a professional first, but when products are prescribed by Annie, you can trust in her expertise. She will be able to guide you through the application process and provide you with follow-up appointments to assess your treatment journey.
Can I take skincare products during pregnancy?
It depends on the product. Annie will be able to advise you as to whether the skincare product you want to take is suitable for pregnant women or not.
How often should I use Obagi moisturisers?
As and when you need them. Whenever you need relief from dry skin, we recommend you rehydrate with Obagi Hydrate daily followed by SPF 30-50 daily.
How quickly will I see results with the Obagi Nu Derm system?
This depends on your age, skin type and the severity of your skin imperfections. Annie will be able to offer you more detailed and bespoke advice following an examination of your skin.
Why don’t Obagi products have an expiration date on them?
A printed expiration date is not required by law, but it is recommended that you replace the product after 12 months.
