Hi Doris, thank you for the question.
I am a firm believer that we do not need ‘expensive’ topicals to achieve good results however this does not mean that expensive topicals are not good. The most important factor to consider in topicals are the ingredients used and consistently alphahydroxy and polyhydroxy acids, vitamin C, and vitamin A (or its derivatives) have shown to benefit the skin. Furthermore we should remember that topicals can only do so much and that ultimately chemical peels, technology based treatments, Botox, and fillers may be necessary to get the best overall results.
