DRY SKIN TREATMENT
Treatment for Dry Skin
Skin that is well-hydrated and properly conditioned looks attractive and feels more comfortable. Excessively dry skin can give the face a dull or tight appearance. Dry skin might require thorough exfoliation to remove dead cells and reveal fresher skin underneath. Alternatively, it may benefit from a more potent night cream or a more intensive rejuvenation treatment.
What is causing my dry skin?
What are my dry skin treatment options?
Dry skin might stem from genetics, sun exposure, aging, product use, or certain medications. You may have tried many serums and moisturizers with varying results. Maybe acne treatment has addressed your acne but left your skin dry by decreasing your skin’s natural oils. Then, there are environmental effects to consider. Do you take long, hot showers? Do you steam your face, hoping to add plumpness and hydration? Extreme heat can dry your skin and, when coupled with water, will strip away inherent moisture.
Various methods of skin resurfacing are effective treatments for dry skin. Microdermabrasion is an abrasive treatment that “sands” the skin, improving its texture. A chemical peel is applied to the skin at varying depths to remove its outer layers, also for more superficial uses. Laser treatment concentrates light to remove the outer layers of skin and stimulate the growth of the remaining collagen.
Can Microneedling Help With Dry Skin?
Microneedling is another effective treatment. Tiny needles are introduced into the skin, creating microscopic channels or holes. This can stimulate collagen and elastin production. Skincare products can be used with microneedling to increase product penetration, increasing overall hydration of the skin.
