MD Forte

M.D. Forte Skin Care

MD Forte skin care products make the skin visibly smoother, diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, increase skin hydration, balance skin tone, and improve oily and acne-prone skin.

MD Forte Improves Aging Skin With Glycolic Acid Compounds

The MD Forte line of antiaging products contain physician-strength glycolic acid compounds (a form of Alpha Hydroxy Acids also known as AHA) with 2 to 3 times higher levels than other similar products and work without the irritation that often accompanies other product brands. MD Forte skin care products gently exfoliate the outer layers of dry, sun-damaged skin by loosening the cellular “cement” that binds dead cells together. Moreover, the glycolic acid compounds increase the moisturization of the skin. A younger, healthier, smoother-looking skin is revealed. The MD Forte skin care product line is well tolerated with a pH closer to that of normal skin, which is less likely to cause the redness and irritation associated with many other glycolic acid brands. MD Forte´s antiaging skin care products also offer long-lasting effects throughout the day, helping maximize your skin rejuvenation efforts.

Skin Rejuvenation Line Is Ideal For Pre & Post Cosmetic Procedure Application

The Skin Rejuvenation Lotion II (20% Glycolic compound) and Skin Rejuvenation Lotion III (30% Glycolic compound for extremely dry/environmentally damaged skin) contain vitamin A and E and are ideal for pre- and post cosmetic procedure application (as directed by your physician), laser procedures, spot treatments, smile and worry lines.

Results Can Be Expected Within A Few Days

Your skin will most likely become softer and smoother within a few days. Improvement will occur with continued use. In approximately 2–6 weeks you should begin to see and feel visible results, depending on the condition of your skin prior to use. The appearance of fine lines will diminish and the overall tone and texture of your skin will become more even. Additionally, glycolic acid peels by a physician can accelerate the results.

A Complete Beauty Routine For Healthy & Rejuvenated Skin

MD Forte skin care products fit every skin type with a combination adapted to each type. The complete recommended skin care routine involves several steps: Cleanse, Hydrate, Renew, and Protect.

1. Cleanse

You should first choose an appropriate MD Forte cleanser. MD Forte cleansers gently yet effectively wash away oil, makeup, and surface debris without drying the skin. The cleansers are all soap and fragrance-free. Specifically, MD Forte Facial Cleanser I contains 12% glycolic compound and is appropriate for women and men either starting an Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA) regimen or for those who have sensitive skin. MD Forte Facial Cleanser II contains 15% glycolic compound and offers a higher level of AHA correction than Level I.

2. Hydrate & Renew

Next, it is important to hydrate and renew damaged and dull-looking skin. Each skin type can find the ideal MD Forte product to hydrate and renew the skin. Each level (I, II, III) has a higher level of glycolic acid compounds. Specifically, MD Forte Facial Cream I contains 15% glycolic compound and is ideal to use if you are either somewhat dry or are using a retinoid product. MD Forte Facial Cream II contains 20% glycolic compound and has a higher level of AHA than Level I. MD Forte Facial Cream III contains 30% glycolic compound and offers the highest AHA correction. In general, it is recommended to advance to Level II or III only after using Level I or Level II for 4-6 months (or as directed by your physician).

If your skin is mildly oily, or if you live in a hot, humid climate, you can use the MD Forte lotion of lightweight products. Specifically, MD Forte Facial Lotion I contains 15% glycolic compound, MD Forte Facial Lotion II contains 20% glycolic compound, and MD Forte Facial Lotion III offers the highest AHA correction. The lotions can be used alone or under make up. In general, it is recommended to advance to Level II or III only after using Level I or Level II for 4-6 months (or as directed by your physician).

For extremely oily or acne-prone skin, MD Forte offers the Glycare line of skin care products to prevent future breakouts while smoothing and toning the skin with AHA correction. MD Forte Glycare Cleansing Gel helps reduce oily build-up. MD Forte Glycare I (15% Glycolic compound) helps decrease oil build-up and open pores to help fight acne, while MD Forte Glycare II (20% Glycolic compound) offers even more AHA correction for oily or acne prone men and women.

3. Protect

You should always use a sunscreen with SPF 15 or greater (such as MD Forte Total Daily Protector SPF 15, MD Forte SPF 20 Sun Protector, or MD Forte Aftercare Environmental Protection Cream SPF 30) in conjunction with glycolic acid–based products to avoid increase in sun sensitivity. To protect your skin against premature aging, the MD Forte sunscreens contain technologically advanced transparent zinc oxide and provide broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection all day long for the most complete coverage against future skin damage.
