From a duller appearance to painful cracks and redness, dry skin is far from pleasant. While it’s very common, you shouldn’t have to live with it. In some cases, symptoms related to skin dryness become severe, making it more difficult to go about your life as usual—or at least with less physical and emotional ease. Whether you have only mild, sporadic issues with dry skin or perpetual problems, you could be an excellent candidate for HydraFacial treatment.
Dr. Javier Sosa and his team at Woodlands Primary Healthcare are pleased to provide this nourishing treatment for dry skin, as well as related skin concerns for residents of The Woodlands, Texas. Keep reading to learn more about this type of facial and how it might benefit you.
What causes dry skin
Your skin is your largest organ. It also gets far more exposure to the elements than any other organ in your body. When your skin is in contact with especially hot, cold, or low-moisture air, some amount of dryness is a near given. Dehydration and smoking can also cause or worsen dry skin. And if you’re prone to the condition, harsh soaps can exacerbate matters.
Once your skin is dry, you might notice a range of related symptoms, such as:
- A feeling of tightness
- Ashiness or grayness
- Cracks that may bleed
- Fine lines
- Red areas
- Skin the looks and feels rough
How HydraFacial works
HydraFacial deeply cleanses, exfoliates, and hydrates your skin. It uses a patented Vortex-Fusion system with a spiral design that makes for a comfortable, pain-free experience. During the treatment, your skin is infused with nourishing serums designed to target several skin issues in a single session.
This gentle treatment can help minimize or prevent skin dryness while addressing other problems, such as:
- Age spots and sun spots
- Clogged pores
- Facial redness
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Oily areas, if you have combination skin
- Uneven tone
Each HydraFacial treatment takes only 30 minutes at our office and requires no downtime afterward. You can get straight on with the rest of your day with skin that looks and feels more radiant and refreshed.
Making the most of HydraFacial treatment
HydraFacial treatment offers smoothness and hydration that can last for at least 5-7 days. Many people experience benefits beyond a week. To get the most from HydraFacial, aim to schedule one treatment per month.
In addition, be sure to take good care of your skin by applying a high-quality moisturizer daily, protecting your skin from UV rays, and drinking plenty of water or other hydrating options. If you smoke, quitting can go a long way toward enhancing your skin, too, while enhancing your overall health.
