Dry Skin Treatments at The Cosmetic Skin Clinic
In the majority of cases, dry skin is caused by environmental factors like excessively cold or hot weather, indoor central heating and low air moisture. However, ageing can also contribute to dry skin as we lose hyaluronic acid stores as we age. These natural sugar compounds retain water and moisture levels in our skin, but they gradually deplete as part of the ageing process. Sun damage can also cause break down our skin’s natural collagen and elastin fibres, leaving us with dry, tired and wrinkled-looking skin.
Getting rid of dry skin is all about enriching the skin with natural proteins and compounds that help the skin to retain its moisture and tautness. A dry, dehydrated, lacklustre or sun-damaged complexion needs extra care. While non-surgical skin-boosting treatments can help to stimulate collagen within our skin to repair itself and rejuvenate, these skin improvements can actually be further enhanced by cosmeceutical skincare ranges.
Cosmeceutical is a word that combines ‘cosmetic’ and ‘pharmaceutical’. This type of product has the active potential to bring about visible changes to the skin, backed by clinical evidence. Applied topically, a cosmeceutical product can penetrate deeper into the skin where collagen, elastin and cellular activity takes place.
Cosmeceutical products contain higher concentrations of active ingredients, making them very results-focused when reducing the appearance of dry skin. Ingredients that feed, nourish and thicken the skin, such as topical Vitamin C serum and Vitamin A, improve skin quality and work in synergy with in-clinic treatments for prolonged and boosted effects. We offer a range of dry skin treatments from renowned brands like Obagi Skin to deeply moisturise and enhance the skin’s tone and texture. When combined with hyaluronic acid dermal fillers and collagen-boosting treatments like Profhilo, we can achieve maximum results as the skin is restored with the essential nutrients it needs to retain moisture, volume and structural support.
