Cosmeceutical Skincare

Cosmeceutical skincare transforms skin with active ingredients, proven scientific formulations and higher strengths than regular beauty and cosmetic products. Discover a new routine to plump dry skin, smooth lines, clear acne breakouts and more.


Understanding Cosmeceutical Skincare

Cosmeceutical skincare works at a much deeper level than cosmetic skincare, using medical-grade ingredients to change skin structure and cell behaviour for long-lasting and visible results. Whether you want to minimise acne breakouts, smooth wrinkles or plump dry skin, there is a cosmeceutical to help you achieve it without a prescription or surgery.

Me Clinic has you covered from AHAs to BHAs with the cosmeceutical best sellers that every Australian wants on their wishlist for healthy, glowing skin every day. Book in for your consultation with us at one of our locations across Australia, including Melbourne, Mildura, Gold Coast and Brisbane.

Surgical Warning: Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.

The Science Behind Cosmeceuticals

Cosmeceuticals are loaded with active ingredients that have been turned into scientific formulations proven to treat and assist a wide variety of skin concerns, from fading blemishes and reducing breakouts to promoting collagen for firmer, plumper skin. While traditional skincare works on the surface of the skin, cosmeceuticals penetrate the skin at a deeper level to change skin cell structure and treat the root cause of the problem. The secret lies in using medical-grade ingredients proven to give visible results at a strength that is higher than OTC products.

Key Ingredients in Cosmeceutical Skincare Products

Some of the most powerful ingredients you will find in cosmeceuticals include:

  • Peptides
  • Vitamin C
  • Vitamin A
  • Retinol
  • Hyaluronic Acid
  • Niacinamide
  • Ceramide
  • Glycolic Acid
  • Salicylic Acid

Benefits of Cosmeceutical Skincare

Cosmeceuticals can do wonders for your skin. Here are just some of their benefits:

  • They contain active ingredients with a higher strength that OTC skincare
  • No prescription needed
  • They work deep beneath the skin to change skin cell behaviour for clearer, healthier skin that’s long-lasting
  • They provide targeted results with a tailored treatment plan

Cosmeceuticals vs. Traditional Skincare

Traditional skincare products temporarily treat the skin while cosmeceuticals contain powerful ingredients and scientific formulations to target the root of the problem, treat it and prevent it from coming back. Cosmeceutical-grade products are the best way to maintain healthy, clear skin at any age and can be tailored to suit your specific needs and skin type.

How to Incorporate Cosmeceuticals into Your Skincare Routine

From hydrating and exfoliating, to firming and brightening, cosmeceuticals are key players in your skincare routine if you want to see visible results. You can get cosmeceutical-grade cleansers, moisturisers, eye creams, toners, serums, exfoliators and more to either replace or incorporate into your usual routine.

The Role of Cosmeceuticals in Anti-Aging

To slow down the signs of ageing in skin, it’s important to use the right ingredients. Cosmeceuticals contain powerful ingredients like retinol, antioxidants and hyaluronic acid that can help to combat a number of ageing signs, such as wrinkles, fine lines, crow’s feet and dryness. These ingredients work to firm and plump the skin, restoring lost elastin and promoting new collagen for firmer, younger-looking skin.

Addressing Skin Concerns with Cosmeceuticals

Cosmeceutical skincare products are results-driven products that can be used to assist and treat many skin conditions, including:

Choosing the Right Cosmeceutical Products for Your Skin Type

When it comes to the best cosmeceuticals for your skin health, a tailored approach is a must. That’s why a consultation with our cosmetic physicians is integral for formulating a skin care plan that suits your needs. During this consultation, we will discuss your skin condition and suggest products from our range that will work with your skin tone and type to help you achieve radiant skin that’s healthy and youthful.

A no obligation consultation with one of our Cosmetic Physicians and Clinicians or Aestheticians is essential so your skin can be examined and assessed for the most suitable cosmeceutical skincare products for your skin.

Cosmeceuticals for Sensitive Skin

Our cosmeceutical range is suitable for sensitive skin as it’s free from harsh chemicals, preservatives and fragrances that can cause irritation when used in a skincare routine. All of the ingredients are also plant-based.

Treating Acne With Cosmeceuticals

Cosmeceuticals can be very beneficial in treating acne and blemishes. Ingredients like salicylic acid, vitamin A, niacinamide and zinc can help to reduce oily skin and clear clogged pores to minimise breakouts.

Cosmeceuticals and Sun Protection

In Australia, dermatologists recommend that you use a sunscreen with at least a 30 SPF rating. Cosmeceutical sunscreens help to protect your skin while also protecting your skincare results and work in with ingredients like retinol and glycolic acid rather than against them.
