An Essential Act of Self-Care
When faced with the overwhelming selection of skincare products in the aisle or online, it can be challenging to determine which ones are the best choice. While over-the-counter options may seem like a money-saving solution, the question remains: can they truly deliver the desired results? This is a topic frequently discussed at the Austin-Weston Elite Skin Center, where we have a proven track record of helping clients optimize their surgical and non-surgical treatments by assisting them in establishing a comprehensive skincare routine at home. While practicing a skincare routine is an essential act of self-care, it is equally important to carefully consider the specific products you incorporate into that routine.
Good Skincare Is Essential
Medical-grade skincare, also referred to as professional, clinical, or cosmeceutical skincare, refers to high-quality skincare products formulated with scientifically-backed ingredients. The concentration of active ingredients in these products is typically higher than what you might find in over-the-counter (OTC) products, making them more effective for maintaining a comprehensive skincare routine at home.
We carry products from Skinceuticals, Senté, and Skin Medica, as well as our personal line of Austin-Weston Elite Skincare products, Precision. These products are specially formulated to address a variety of skin types and concerns, from acne and hyperpigmentation to wrinkles and laxity, giving your complexion the nourishment it needs to feel healthy and look glowing every day. Our licensed medical aesthetician is here to help you select the best products for your skincare needs.
The SkinCeuticals philosophy revolves around three principles: prevent, correct, and protect. With these goals in mind, SkinCeuticals offers cleansers, toners, mists, moisturizers, sunscreens, serums, and more specially formulated for every skin type and concern. High-powered ingredients like retinol, antioxidants, and hyaluronic acid are expertly blended into many of these formulas to produce visible improvements in skin tone and texture while maintaining your skin’s health in the long term.
The star of the Senté skincare line is Senté’s patented ingredient, Heparan Sulfate Analog (HSA). HSA supports rejuvenation with the skin’s own restorative molecule, Heparan Sulfate. Aging slows down our body’s ability to retain its moisture and repair itself. HSA defends the skin from environmental damage and helps it restore itself for a more youthful, toned appearance. Senté’s product formulations also incorporate science-backed ingredients like cysteamine, retinol, vitamin A, niacinamide, hyaluronic acid, ceramides, and antioxidants.
Created by renowned dermatologist Dr. Richard Fitzpatrick, SkinMedica has been an industry leader in medical-grade skincare for over two decades. Continually at the forefront of scientific research, SkinMedica offers products that incorporate the most innovative ingredients to heal, rejuvenate, and protect your skin deep down. Make sure to ask our aesthetician about SkinMedica’s powerful serums containing TNS, growth factors, and peptides.
Precision by Austin-Weston, The Center for Cosmetic Surgery, is our private-label skincare line. Co-formulated by Topix Pharmaceutical for Austin-Weston, we wanted to harness our vast knowledge of the skin and offer our patients products that they could use pre-surgery, post-surgery, and beyond. The products in the Precision line are designed to provide the precise nourishment and protection your skin needs.

The main difference is the concentration of active ingredients. Medical-grade skincare products generally contain higher concentrations and are formulated to penetrate the skin more deeply. Additionally, these products are backed by clinical trials proving their efficacy.
While medical-grade products are often more expensive than their over-the-counter counterparts, they contain higher concentrations of active ingredients and may provide better, more noticeable results.
Because these products contain more potent concentrations of active ingredients, some people might experience side effects such as skin irritation, dryness, or peeling, especially as they are adjusting to a new product. Our medical aesthetician will talk to you about the potential side effects of any active ingredients in the products you select and how to ameliorate them.
