Have you seen those serums and creams with gold and caviar that sell for $800 a bottle? Of course you have! The bottles looked so elegant with beautiful rhinestones that shone and dazzled under the bright lights, the smell was exquisite, and the cream felt sooo silky on your skin.

Q, Was it worth $800? A. Most probably not.

Skin care companies pour tons of money into their marketing strategies to produce bottles, glitz and scents that will capture the customers. The expensive additives like 24K gold simply cannot improve your actual skin quality and change your skin’s physiology. Additives also enhance the feel and skin hydration. And that’s just what it does – temporarily hydrate and plump the outer skin.

The active additives that really make a difference to how your skin behaves are likely to be few and far between. The same goes for beautician and spa brands, They are simply not medical grade.

On the opposite end of the spectrum, there are those very cheap products with insufficient activity on the skin. Again, these products either temporarily hydrate the skin, smell nice, or add oils to the skin’s surface.

The ideal balance will be a product line formulated with high quality medical grade active ingredients, but without the extra fluff. If you are serious about achieving clear skin, we recommend an average daily budget of $2-5 on high quality medical grade skin care. Of course, more severe cosmetic skin problems will be at the higher end of the scale.

Lets do the math.

Say you have severe acne or skin discolorations, your skin needs for transformation will be a combination of alpha and beta hydroxy cleansers, exfoliators, toners and serums, home peels, possibly micronized benzoyl peroxide and skin lighteners. To balance your active ingredients, you will also need barrier membrane repair agents such as peptides and special skin oils.

With Melanopeel® you are looking at a budget of $150-300 for a 2-3 month supply of serious and committed transforming skin care. Patients already know that other medical grade skin care lines come with even heftier pricetags for their total committed transforming program, so this is a modest price for great skin care.

Let’s say you don’t have that budget.

If you cannot purchase your ideal products now, we are realistic and understand the reality of budget constraints. Our clinics are trained to make recommendations of 2-3 items that will make a difference. While not ideal, these recommendations will tide you over until you are able to add another piece into your regime.

Regardless of your budget, we are able to work with you to get you one step closer to the skin you want. Your Melanopeel® Clinic understands this, and are able to make realistic recommendations for you!
