Home Use Products at TLJ Aesthetics MD
What you use on your skin at home is an important part of your journey to better skin, whether treating skin conditions, the signs of aging or as a preventative course of action.
Home use products contain both cosmetic ingredients (those that improve the appearance of the skin) and active ingredients (those that alter the function of the skin, which can be administered through prescription or over-the-counter-level drug potency). These categories of skincare ingredients are defined by the FDA.
At TLJ Aesthetics MD, Dr. Jacobson has over 25 years of experience as a medical doctor, as well as a pharmacist. What you use on your skin matters, and we are dedicated to providing you with the tools you desire both in our office and at home to optimize how your skin functions and it’s appearance. Together, we will determine what options are the best for your goals and desires.

Other ingredients essential in this line include but are not limited to ionized platinum and essential minerals, eggshell membrane to restore skin structure and boost regeneration at the level of the dermis.
