md formulations® FAQ's

What makes md formulations® unique when compared to other Alpha Hydroxy resurfacing products?
Many of md formulations® products are made with Glycolic Acid and are pH balanced to be gentle. Glycolic Acid is a form of AHA found naturally in cane sugar. It is believed to be the most effective AHA because its small molecular size delivers faster, more efficient skin penetration-providing quick, noticeable improvement to the look and feel of your skin.


What can md formulations® products do for me?
md formulations® products contain Alpha Hydroxy Acid and other specialized ingredients that help exfoliate dead skin cells and increase moisturization of your skin. As the dry outer skin layer is exfoliated, fine lines and wrinkles become less noticeable, skin tones become balanced and younger, healthier, smoother-looking skin is revealed.


When can I expect to see results?
Your skin will most likely become softer and smoother within a few days and improvement will occur with continued use. The look of fine lines will gradually disappear, and the overall tone and texture of your skin will become more even.


Does md formulations® offer professional salon based treatments?
Yes, our salon based treatments can accelerate the results obtained and maintained with your home care products.


Is tingling normal when using an AHA product?
Yes, a moderate amount of tingling is normal when AHA products are first applied. It should subside within a few seconds, depending on your skin sensitivity. If the tingling is uncomfortable, wait 15 to 30 min after cleansing before application of another AHA product. For sensitive skin try md formulations® Sensitive Skin products made with our unique Sensitive Skin Complex to soothe and calm.


Does md formulations® incorporate antioxidants in their products? 
Yes, md is at the forefront of antioxidant technology. In fact, our entire line of Vit-A-Plus products incorporate powerful and stable antioxidants. Antioxidants are proven essential to strengthening, defending and repairing skin damage from environmental exposure.


What about AHA and sun sensitivity?
Use all md products in conjunction with an effective sunscreen. Two excellent examples are md formulations® Total Daily Protector SPF 15 and SPF 30. Both products contain micronized zinc oxide, the best sun block available. They provide broad-spectrum protection against UVA and UVB rays and are recommended by The Skin Cancer Foundation. They also contain Vitamin E for added protection against the effects of environmental aging and allantoin, which promotes healing and helps prevent chafed, cracked or windburned skin and lips.


Are md formulations® products suitable for men? 
Absolutely!! Men use our products to address concerns from acne to sun damage and aging.
