Why We Have Chosen to Offer Professional Skincare Products

Skin Care Amarillo TX In our Amarillo office, patients often bring cosmetic concerns up during their visits. The skin around the eyes is particularly delicate and therefore needs consistent and gentle care. Research has demonstrated the immense benefits of a proper skincare routine, but the issue isn’t that easy. How do you know what to use on your skin for the biggest gains? We think we may be able to help. Dr. Murrell has chosen to offer professional skin care products for our patients. Here’s why.

Key Differences between Professional and Over-the-Counter Skin Care

Ingredient Quality

It doesn’t matter how nicely packaged or well-marketed a product is, if it doesn’t work, it isn’t valuable. For a product to truly improve overall skin health and cosmetic appearance, it must contain not only the right ingredients but the right amount of each. Professional skin care products undergo extensive testing precisely because they are formulated with stronger ingredient concentrations. This means some products may cause irritation in some patients. This is why professional-grade products are only available in clinical offices.


A little detail about skincare products and even natural substances that people commonly miss is that various substances have varying molecule sizes. Molecule size determines whether or not a substance can penetrate the skin. Good examples include coconut oil, which is small enough to get absorbed by the skin (and the hair). Jojoba oil and hyaluronic acid are examples of substances that are too large molecularly to get absorbed. That doesn’t mean non-absorbable ingredients aren’t beneficial. When applied topically in the right manner, hyaluronic acid can hold moisture in the skin. This is why you will find this ingredient in many skincare products.

It isn’t that professional-grade skincare has only ingredients with tiny molecule sizes; it’s that these products are made in such a way and used in such a way that the skin gets what it needs through layering.

The eyes may be our specialty, but we also care about the skin that surrounds them. Contact our Amarillo office at (806) 351-1177 for more information on the professional-grade skincare now available.
