In brief: Be wary

The best anti skin care lines are sold in physicians offices since they combine many medical grade treatments such as Alpha hydroxy's, retin-a, hydroquinone, etc any time one tries to buy similar products online, you can not guarantee where it comes from. All physician grade products are not sold online so who knows where this stuff is coming from. Be careful.

In brief: Caveat emptor!

Buyer beware! many of the best products for anti aging skincare are sold exclusively through mds or by prescription.
Although you can find these "products" online, it is unclear where they come from or exactly what is in them, & they are not guaranteed by the manufacturers. Your best value is see an md that specializes in skincare & get the best products with professional guidance & follow-up.

In brief: Yes

You can, but you need to do some research and make sure you are buying from a reputable website.
Some sites will sell prescription products without a prescription or products that contain dangerous ingredients.
