Why choose medical grade skin care?

Medical grade skin care products, which are available only through a licensed physician’s office, have been thoroughly and independently tested to ensure safety and efficacy. Many of these products contain prescription-strength ingredients, so they work much more quickly and are more likely to achieve your desired result, saving you time and money in the long run.

Additionally, when you purchase your skin care products through Dr. Thors’ office, you will receive professional guidance in selecting your products, so you can feel confident that the skincare you are using is safe for your skin type, effective in meeting your goals, and a worthwhile investment.
