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 and is due to a low water content in 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.

At-Home Measures For Dry Skin

In-Clinic Treatments

Skin Boosters

“Skinboosters” are procedures where lightweight bio-stimulatory compounds like Hyaluronic Acid (HA) or Polynucleotides (PN) 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 delay the onset of aging by replenishing the skin’s inherent moisture content, reviving skin for a smoother, softer and glowing effect. Some HA boosters contain additional ingredients such as glycerol, vitamins, minerals or amino acids to further improve skin quality. Polynucleotides help with skin healing and improve the appearance of sun-damaged, dry or aging skin.

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 and we can achieve a more hydrated, refreshed and radiant look.

BARE SKIN BOOSTERS

Made in Switzerland, the Bare Skin Boosters impart HA into the deeper layers of the skin to give it a 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.

Polynucleotides

Polynucleotides are derived from salmon DNA and assist with skin repair and rejuvenation. Extracted from salmon, it naturally builds collagen, restores damage and reduces inflammation. It stimulates the production of collagen for firmer, healthier skin. These skin boosters are best suited for those with skin textural issues from sun damage, xerotic conditions such as eczema or rosacea or skin aging. 

Hybrid Cooperative Complex Skin Booster

In this skin booster, hyaluronic acid (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 is about 5 times more than the average skinbooster, making its concentration the highest in the world. Hailing from Italy, these treatments involve only five injection sites on each side of the face and neck using the Bio Aesthetic Point (BAP) technique. Alternatively, a cannula can be used for those who are unable to afford any downtime.

Glycerol Skin Booster

Glycerol Skin Booster contains both hyaluronic acid with the addition of glycerol to potentiate the water binding capacity. This skin booster is for those looking for deep and long-lasting hydration for a skin glow from within. There was also shown to be increased skin softness and firmness for up to 9 months.
