Las Vegas – At the fall edition of The Cosmetic Bootcamp (CBC), Kenneth Beer, M.D., emphasized the importance of cosmeceuticals and the expertise of core aesthetic specialists.
Dr. Beer said that for all core providers of aesthetic services, “Cosmeceuticals are going to become increasingly popular and important. Our patients are getting them from department stores and all over the place. But it’s better to have them come to us,” he said, because in department stores, nail salons or other retail establishments, patients will spend more money and get less substance. Over time, “Maybe they’ll go to a hair place that’s providing Botox,” with potentially disastrous results.
With people spending a fortune on cosmeceuticals, “It’s better for them to get products that actually have scientific validity,” and to purchase these products from well-trained and properly credentialed dermatologists, plastic surgeons, ophthalmologists and otolaryngologists. Dr. Beer is a CBC co-founder, an associate clinical professor of dermatology at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, a consulting associate with Duke University and a clinical associate in dermatology, University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine.
