    Musely Company Overview

    Musely started out as an online community for people to create and share beauty and wellness tips and tricks. Near the end of 2018, Musely founder and his wife stumbled on the greatest “tip” of them all, and this was provided by a friend of theirs, renowned dermatologist, Dr. Marie Jhin. They went to see Dr. Jhin after years of failing to treat their dark spots and wrinkles and received a prescription for skincare treatment. After 2 months of using this treatment, they both noticed their skin had been transformed, their dark spots, sun spots and melasma disappeared, they had smaller pores, and reduced wrinkles. They decided they needed to share their story and make this treatment available for everyone and make it faster and cheaper than visiting a doctor. This is when they decided to launch Face-Rx a telemedicine platform that provides users with access to the best anti-aging prescription skincare. Many of these countries' top board-certified dermatologists joined Dr. Jhin and formed the Musely Medical board. They designed unique skincare formulas that are customized for each user.

    To get started with Face-Rx just visit the Musely website and select “Start Online Dermatologist Visit”, you will need to complete a questionnaire about your skin and skincare goals and upload photos for the doctor to review. Once your questionnaire is completed you will be asked to enter your payment information. The doctor will evaluate your photos and questionnaire and determine the best treatment plan for you. Your Face-Rx treatment includes a dermatologist evaluation and consults for 60 days, your prescription, 1 initial order and 5 refills, and access to eNurse. eNurse is a feature that provides check-ups, helpful tips, a community of other Face-Rx users, and allows you to message your dermatologist.

    Musely not only offers their prescription products through the use of Face-Rx but they offer a multitude of health, wellness, beauty, family, and nutrition products via the “Natural Finds” tab on the Musely website. There is also a tips section that contains tips from other users on various topics such as beauty, product reviews, food and drink, parenting, fitness, relationships, DIY crafting and so much more. Musely is so much more than just prescription anti-aging skincare, it provides a community for all of your beauty, health, and wellness needs.

    Active Ingredients in Face-Rx by Musely products and how they work

    • Tretinoin -  is a prescription-strength retinoid that speeds up skin cell turnover and boosts collagen production to smooth and tighten your skin for younger-looking skin.
    • Niacinamide -  this is an active form of vitamin B3 and has been shown to improve fine lines and wrinkles, it reduces hyperpigmentation, like age spots, and increases ceramide production which leads to greater hydration of your skin. It helps to brighten skin while hydrating skin and shrinking pores
    • Hyaluronic Acid - helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles while retaining moisture in the skin producing a plumping effect. When your skin is protected and hydrated it can increase skin cell production because your skin is no longer fighting for hydration.
    • Octisalate - provides protection from the harmful effects of the sun's UVB rays.
    • Oxybenzone - provides protection from the harmful effects of the sun's UV rays.
    • Avobenzone - is an ultraviolet filter that helps protect against harmful UV rays.
    • Octocrylene - used to neutralize UV rays and minimize skin damage from sun exposure.
    • Hydroquinone - breaks down melanosomes in pigmented skin cells and reduces/removes age/dark spots
    • Azelaic Acid - this naturally occurring acid that has antibacterial, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory features making it an effective  treatment for the pigment in sensitive skin
    • Kojic Acid -  help with skin irritation
    • Vitamin C - is an antioxidant that neutralizes free radicals and aids in your skin’s natural regeneration process by helping your body repair damaged skin cells. When used topically the skin is triggered to heal itself, because it is very acidic it causes accelerated production of collagen and elastin.
    • Hydrocortisone - used to soothe side effects of some active ingredients such as redness, dryness, peeling, warmth, itching, irritation, allergic reaction/etc.
