首先，什么是醫美護膚品？醫美的全稱是“醫學美容”，它是通過藥物、儀器和手術等醫學手段，來改變五官、皮膚等人體外部形態。說得再簡潔明了一些，醫美就是以提升外在美感為目的，而進行的一系列治療手段。目前醫美行業有以下5種分類，分別是：五官美容、美體美容，皮膚美容、無創美容、口腔美容和其他美容。很多人一聽到醫美這個詞，下意識就會把它跟“整容”劃上等號，但其實它們不完全相同。嚴格來說，醫美是一個總的范疇，而整容只是醫美旗下的一個分支。凡是有創傷的美容治療方法，一定是整容的范疇，而這樣的整容手術，是必須在醫療機構才能進行的。除了整容，還有光子嫩膚、針劑注射、祛斑點痣等護膚類項目也都屬于醫美的范疇。不光是醫院，這些項目還可以在專業的美容會所中由國家執業醫師來操作。醫美護膚品與普通護膚品有什么區別？醫美護膚品雖然也打著“醫美”字樣，但它的本質其實也還是護膚品，只不過它往往由醫藥公司生產，是生物醫學級的原料結合美容專業保養概念，針對某些特定的皮膚癥狀而研發的護膚品。在臨床醫學中，這類功效護膚品能夠幫助患者保持皮膚健康，預防治療后的并發癥，加速皮膚恢復和減少額外損傷。還有一點需要講明的是醫美護膚品不是藥妝，兩者從概念上來看有很強的相似性，但完全不是一個東西?！八帄y”的概念來源于美國，一般被認為是含藥化妝品。在美國, 凡被FDA（美國食品藥品管理局）認為含有藥物成分的化妝品就是藥妝品。藥妝雖然含有一定的藥物成分，但在中國市場仍屬護膚品批號范疇，包裝上會有注明“妝”字號。 而醫美護膚品屬于醫療器械的范疇，其包裝上會有“械”字號。以當下更火的醫美面膜舉例，可以清楚的看到包裝上的醫療器械標注。
First of all, what is beauty care products? The full name of medical beauty is "medical beauty". It changes the external form of human body such as facial features and skin by means of medicine, instruments, surgery and other medical means. To be more succinct and clear, medical beauty is a series of treatment means for the purpose of improving external beauty. At present, the medical beauty industry has the following five categories: facial beauty, body beauty, skin beauty, non-invasive beauty, oral beauty and other beauty. As soon as many people hear the word "beauty of medicine", their subconscious will equate it with "plastic surgery", but in fact, they are not exactly the same. Strictly speaking, medical beauty is a general category, and plastic surgery is only a branch of medical beauty. All the traumatic cosmetic treatment methods must be the scope of plastic surgery, and such plastic surgery must be carried out in medical institutions. In addition to cosmetic surgery, there are also skin care projects such as Photorejuvenation, injection, freckle removal and nevus removal, which also belong to the category of medical beauty. Not only hospitals, these projects can also be operated by national doctors in professional beauty salons. What's the difference between medical skin care products and ordinary skin care products? Although medical beauty skin care products are also labeled "medical beauty", its essence is also skin care products, but it is often produced by pharmaceutical companies. It is a kind of skin care product developed for some specific skin symptoms based on biomedical raw materials combined with the concept of professional beauty care. In clinical medicine, this kind of effective skin care products can help patients maintain skin health, prevent complications after treatment, accelerate skin repair and reduce additional damage. It should also be noted that Medicare skin care products are not cosmetics. They have a strong conceptual similarity, but they are not one thing at all. The concept of "medicated makeup" comes from the United States and is generally considered to be medicated cosmetics. In the United States, cosmetics that are considered by the FDA to contain pharmaceutical ingredients are cosmetic products. Although pharmaceutical makeup contains certain pharmaceutical ingredients, it still belongs to the category of skin care product batch number in the Chinese market, and the package will be marked with "makeup" number. Medical beauty skin care products belong to the category of medical devices, and there will be a "mechanical" brand on the package. Take the most popular medical beauty mask at present, for example, you can clearly see the label of medical devices on the package.
In the record of the State Food and drug administration, it can also be clearly found that its record is a medical device.
