Benefits of Using Medical Grade Skincare

I advocate for the use of medical-grade skincare products due to their profound impact on skin health and appearance. Medical-grade skincare, including the esteemed lines of ZO Skin Health, Obagi, and SkinBetter Science that we proudly offer, is distinguished by several key benefits:

Superior Ingredients

Medical-grade skincare products contain higher concentrations of active ingredients compared to over-the-counter alternatives. These potent formulations are designed to target specific skin concerns effectively, from signs of ageing and sun damage to acne and hyperpigmentation.

Backed by Science

Each product in our medical-grade skincare range is the result of extensive scientific research and development. These formulations are rigorously tested for efficacy and safety, ensuring they deliver the promised results without compromising your skin's health.

Personalised Skincare Solutions

One of the most significant advantages of opting for medical-grade skincare is the ability to tailor your skincare routine to your unique needs. Following a comprehensive consultation at Castle Aesthetics, I can recommend a bespoke combination of products that address your specific concerns, enhancing the overall health and appearance of your skin.

Deep Penetration and Effectiveness

Thanks to their scientifically engineered formulations, medical-grade skincare products penetrate deeper into the skin's layers, working at a cellular level to rejuvenate and repair. This deep penetration ensures that your skin receives the full benefits of the active ingredients, leading to more significant and long-lasting improvements.

Preventive Care

In addition to correcting existing skin issues, medical-grade skincare plays a crucial role in preventive care. By nurturing the skin with high-quality ingredients and advanced formulations, these products help prevent the onset of further skin problems, keeping your skin healthy and vibrant for years to come.

Professional Support

When you choose medical-grade skincare, you also gain access to professional guidance and support. At Castle Aesthetics, I am dedicated to ensuring that you understand how to use these products effectively and safely, providing you with the knowledge and tools to maintain optimal skin health.


Medical-grade skincare refers to products that are formulated with higher concentrations of active ingredients than those typically found over the counter. These products are designed to target specific skin issues more effectively and are often backed by extensive scientific research. At Castle Aesthetics, we offer leading lines such as ZO Skin Health, Obagi, and SkinBetter Science, which are renowned for their superior quality and results.

Using medical-grade skincare is often recommended for individuals seeking targeted, effective solutions for specific skin concerns. The benefits of medical-grade skincare stem from their formulation:

  • Higher Concentrations of Active Ingredients: Medical-grade products contain higher concentrations of active ingredients compared to over-the-counter options, allowing them to address skin issues more effectively.

  • Backed by Scientific Research: These products undergo rigorous scientific research and testing to ensure their efficacy and safety. As a result, they can offer real, visible improvements in skin health and appearance.

  • Customized Skincare Solutions: Medical-grade skincare provides the opportunity for a tailored approach to your skin’s needs, under the guidance of a skincare professional. This personalisation enhances the effectiveness of your skincare regimen.

If you’re looking for significant, long-term improvements and are dealing with specific skin conditions, medical-grade skincare is a superior choice. During a consultation at Castle Aesthetics, I can help determine the most suitable medical-grade products for your skin’s unique requirements.

Identifying a medical-grade skincare product involves a few key indicators:

  • Availability: Medical-grade skincare products are typically available through licensed healthcare professionals, clinics, or authorised retailers. Their restricted distribution ensures that clients receive a personalised and safe experience.

  • Ingredient Concentration: These products often list active ingredients at higher concentrations than what’s found in over-the-counter alternatives, targeting specific skin issues more directly.

  • Research and Development: Look for evidence of clinical trials, scientific research, and dermatologist involvement in the product’s development. Reputable medical-grade brands invest heavily in research to substantiate their claims.

  • Professional Recommendation: Medical-grade skincare is usually recommended by dermatologists, aestheticians, or skincare specialists who understand your skin’s needs and how specific products can address them.

By focusing on these aspects, you can better navigate the vast skincare market and choose products that offer the best care for your skin.

Choosing the right medical-grade skincare line depends on your specific skin concerns, goals, and lifestyle. During a consultation at Castle Aesthetics, I will conduct a thorough assessment of your skin and discuss your objectives. Based on this, I can recommend the most suitable products from ZO Skin Health, Obagi, and SkinBetter Science to address your needs effectively.

Yes, the medical-grade skincare lines we offer are suitable for a wide range of skin types and concerns. These brands formulate products that cater to diverse needs, ensuring that there is a solution for everyone. However, the key to achieving the best results lies in selecting products tailored to your unique skin conditions, which I can assist with during your consultation.

At Castle Aesthetics, our commitment to your skin’s health and beauty drives us to provide only the best medical-grade skincare options. With personalized advice and support, we ensure that you embark on a skincare journey that truly transforms and rejuvenates your skin.

If however you are pregnant or breastfeeding or have certain allergies, then some of these products may not be suitable for you.

I had a few skin treatments with Dr.Mary including PRP, micro needling and lip flip. While she wasn't pushy and I wasn't under any pressure to have any procedures done, each treatment was explained to me step by step.Dr. Mary was extremely thorough, professional and knowledgeable, which made me comfortable duringtreatments. I look forward to trying out more in the near future!R.

I recently had the pleasure of visiting Dr. Mary Ward for a skin care consultation, and I am truly in awe of her expertise and approach. Not only is she brilliant at what she does, but her ability to make her clients feel at ease is commendable. From the moment I walked in, I felt welcomed and truly heard. Dr. Ward has a natural way with people that puts you immediately at comfort, making the consultation process smooth and informative. I left her clinic not only with a clear plan for my skin but also with the assurance that I was in capable hands. Highly recommend to anyone in need of expert skin care advice and a comforting experience.
