Dehydrated Skin

What Is Dehydrated Skin?

Dehydrated or dry skin is referred to scientifically as xerosis, a prevalent condition characterized by dryness of the outer layer of the skin. This condition leads to a loss of suppleness, resulting in the formation of small splits or cracks, accompanied by flaking or scales. Additionally, the affected skin may become red and itchy. Xerosis affects both males and females equally, with a higher frequency observed among older individuals.

What Causes Dehydrated, Dry Skin?

Bathing or hand washing too frequently can contribute to xerosis, especially with the use of harsh soaps. Constant scratching and rubbing can cause the skin to become thick and leathery. Xerosis can affect the skin on any part of the body but commonly occurs on the lower legs, arms, scalp and hands.

Skin Boosters

“Skinboosters” are procedures where lightweight bio-stimulatory compounds like Hyaluronic Acid (HA) or Poly Deoxyribonucleotides (PDRN) are injected into the skin for intense hydration and/or rejuvenation. HA is capable of binding over 1000 times its weight in water and locks intense moisture within the skin. As we age, our HA content diminishes with half of it being lost by age fifty. This loss of skin texture and firmness causes fine lines and wrinkles to appear. HA skinboosters work to stimulate collagen production and delay the onset by replenishing the skin’s inherent moisture content, reviving skin for a smoother, softer and glowing effect.


Benefits Of Skinboosters

Skinboosters are suitable for dull, dry, uneven complexions and lines. Their numerous anti-aging benefits include greater elasticity, stronger skin integrity, reduced pore size, shallower wrinkles and lines. Pigmented spots can lighten over time for a more hydrated, refreshed and radiant look.


Made in Switzerland, Teoxane (RHA 1 & Redensity 1) imparts HA into different layers of the skin to give it a deep lustre and a lasting glow. This lifts and tightens the skin while improving the appearance of pitted scars and dark-pigmented acne marks. Results can last up to 12 months depending on skin quality, lifestyle, and treatment area.


Filorga is a nutrient-rich concentrate containing 54 active ingredients. This French-made cocktail of HA, vitamins, amino acids, coenzymes, nucleic acids, and antioxidants stimulates the production of collagen, elastin and HA by fibroblasts. You may choose between 3 different injection methods: Needleless, Microneedling or Booster injection. There is minimal downtime and effects last for 6 months to a year.


In Profhilo, HA exists as a type of molecule called Hybrid Cooperative Complex, which gives the ability to ‘bio-remodel’ the skin tissue and releases HA evenly under the skin. The concentration of HA in Profhilo is about 5 times more than the average skinbooster, making its concentration the highest in the world. Hailing from Italy, Profhilo treatments involve only five injection sites on each side of the face and neck using the Bio Aesthetic Point (BAP) technique.


Rejuran Healer, also known as PDRN Therapy, boosts the skin’s regeneration ability with biologically active molecules called Poly Deoxyribonucleotides (PDRN), the building blocks of DNA. Extracted from salmon, it naturally builds collagen, restores damage and reduces inflammation. Compared to HA injectables, Rejuran speeds up skin regeneration and reverses a variety of skin ageing processes. Rejuran originated in Korea.
