Can you create a list of the most popular products sold in dermatologist offices in the US?
Hello! Thank you for asking Wonder. I am happy to provide you with a list of the most popular products sold in dermatologist offices in the United States, along with details about the brands and parent companies (if the brands have parent companies). The most useful sources I found to answer your question include beauty industry websites, Wendy Lewis & Co, Aesthetic Everything, and Skin Care Heaven. The short version is that we have compiled a list of the ten most popular products sold in dermatologist offices in the U.S that were found on several best seller lists and recommendations from industry publications. Below you will find a deep dive of my findings.
During a deep dive into the most popular products sold in dermatologist offices in the U.S, I found very few pre-compiled lists. The reason is that dermatologists cater to a diverse clientele and treatments are often customized to individualized patients. I did find one list dated 2015, which listed the top ten medical skincare lines at Aesthetic Everything and an article listing top sellers at Wendy Lewis Co.
Having found this information I went to each of the mentioned companies to find their most popular products. Many had this information on their product page. For those sites where this information was missing, I looked to Skin Care Heaven's Best Sellers' page. If I did not find the product there, I went to Amazon and did a search on the company and chose the first product on the list sorted by relevance.
Now let's take a look at the findings of this research. I have organized my findings below where you will find each entry in the list headed by a bullet point for the name of the best selling product, then a summary of the brand line and brand/company status.
Please note: Apart from the first three entries in the list, Zerafite® Soothing and Calming Cream, SkinMedica 0.25% Retinol and EltaMD UV Physical Broad Spectrum SPF41, the list is not ranked.
The first three products mentioned in the previous sentence were identified as best sellers by Dr. Baumann, who developed a platform for physicians and tested a wide range of products. Dr. Baumann analyzed 50 doctors’ offices to find the best selling products which I have entered at the top of the list.
