Dry skin FAQ's

Will I need an initial consultation? 

Yes, as with all of our services, you must have an initial-consultation before proceeding with your first treatment - regardless of if you have had this treatment elsewhere. This ensures you are fully educated and informed before proceeding with treatment. We are a best-practice clinic and consistently deliver optimal results by placing paramount importance on education and informed consent.

What causes dry skin?

Usually something in the environment, or something you're doing to your skin, is stripping away the fatty oils, leaving your skin unprotected.  Less often, the cause is internal; a health condition or genetic predisposition is making your skin dry out.

If untreated, dry skin can sometimes lead to dermatitis. The good news is that we can help.  We only use home skin care products that have been clinically proven to get results. 

What treatments are available to treat dry skin?

  • Dermal Fillers: HA is responsible for hydration and plumpness in the skin. As we age, we naturally lose HA, and injectable HA replacement can be used to improve dry, crepey or sun-damaged skin on the face, hands, neck and chest.

  • Microdermaplaning: to remove the dead layer of skin cells so moisturisers and treatment products can be more effective.

  • Natural Peels: our natural peels remove the dead layer of skin cells, improving oil flow and hydration to give a healthy glow to the skin.

  • Omnilux Revive: stimulates your skin’s natural repair, improving collagen production and giving the skin more energy at a cellular level.

  • Medical Grade Skin Care: A tailored home based skin plan aimed to balance the skin, reducing the build up of dead skin cells and loss of water from the skin to make smoother and more hydrated.

  • Vampire Facial Plus: Super booster for skin texture combines regenerating PRP with hydrating HA, administered through our dermal needling pen to maximise skin hydration and repair.
