Why does my skin experience dullness and dehydration?
There are three main reasons why you might have dry and dull skin.
Firstly, is a genetic disposition to having dry, flaky or itchy skin throughout the year. Severe cases of dry skin, such as eczema and psoriasis, may require special medical attention.
Secondly, is dryness and dullness due to ageing skin. Over time, our skin loses our natural hyaluronic acid, which helps to retain moisture within our dermal layers. The skin also gets thinner as we age, increasing water loss through the skin’s barrier to the environment.
Lastly, is environmental and lifestyle factors. Weather, humidity, smoking, alcohol and sun exposure are all factors that can worsen dry skin.
How can I treat my dry skin?
The main goal is to introduce humectants and hyaluronic acid into the skin which help to attract and retain moisture. These can be achieved with the following solutions:
Skin Booster injections administer hyaluronic acid into the superficial layers of the skin and act as a semi-permanent moisturiser.
Our Hydration Oxygen Facial, Hydrodermabrasion Facial and SkinCeuticals AHA Chemical Peels are great options for improving dehydrated skin.
In addition, a consistent cosmeceutical skincare regime that includes topical hyaluronic acid serums are highly recommended to bolster and maintain results.
What results can I expect from anti-ageing treatments?
Depending on your treatment, you should be able to observe that your skin is more plump, hydrated and healthy-looking as soon as immediately after. Results will build up over time. Dry skin treatments do require commitment and consistency as it is an ongoing maintenance process.
