M.D. Forte is an advanced line of skin care products from Allergan (makers of Botox) to provide healthier, younger-looking skin. M.D. Forte provides a personalized skin care regimen to visibly smooth and soften skin; diminish appearance of fine lines and wrinkles; increase skin hydration and suppleness; balance skin tone; and improve oily or acne-prone skin.

What can M.D. Forte skin care products do for me?

M.D. Forte contains alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) to normalize the exfoliation precess and increase moisturization of  your skin. These processes generally slow down with age and exposure to the sun. AHA sheds, or exfoliates, dead cells of the outer layer of the epidermis, making it thinner and more compact. As the dry outer layer is exfoliated by AHA, younger, healthier, smoother-looking skin is revealed.

How does M.D. Forte differ from other AHA skin care products?

M.D. Forte products contain up to 2 to 3 times higher levels of glycolic acid than other similar products at comparable prices, without irritation. Made to a consistently high standard, M.D. Forte products deliver results.

When can I expect to see results?

Your skin will most likely become softer and smoother within a few days. Improvement will occur with continued use. In approximately 2 to 6 weeks you should begin to see and feel visible results, depending on the condition of your skin prior to use. The look of fine lines will diminish and the overall tone and exture of your skin will become more even.

I use to worship the sun. Is it too late to correct the damage I’ve done?

It’s never too late to fight back! M.D. Forte regimen is clinically-proven to work within the skin’s surface where wrinkles begin. Used daily, it will minimize the look of fine lines and wrinkles and soften and smooth skin for a healthier, younger-looking complexion.

Is skin tingling normal when using an AHA product?

Yes. A small 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 minutes after celansing before application of another AHA product. If redness or irritation persists, stop using the product and consult your physician.

What about AHA and sun sensitivity?

Allergan recommends that patients use M.D. Forte skin care products in conjunction with an effective sunscreen. Excellent choices are M.D. Forte Total Daily Protector SPF 15 and Aftercare Environmental Protection Cream SPF 30, which contain technologically advanced transparent zinc oxide, proven to provide broader UV protection than other sunscreen ingredients. Both provide broad spectrum UVA/UVB prection, healing protectant, and antioxidant defense, all in one. These products are recommended by The Skin Cancer Foundation as safe and effective sunscreens.
