Dehydration is very different to dry skin. In fact, dry skin is one of the most misdiagnosed skin conditions we educate our clients about daily in clinic.
True dry skin lacks the ability to hydrate itself effectively and lacks the all-essential lipids and proteins. Often there can be medical skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, and/or dermatitis also observed within the skin, or there can be a history of these skin conditions stemming back from childhood.
Irritation, soreness, plaque-y patches and/or scaly skin for example tend to be signs of having a dry skin and a dry skin condition that is not due to seasonal, environmental, temporary skin dehydration (although seasonal change and external factors do play a big role in exacerbating and causing flare-ups of these skin conditions).
Our Medical Skin Therapists will make a thorough assessment of your skin and formulate a treatment plan to suit your individual needs.
Your skin journey with us begins with an Initial Skin Consultation before proceeding with any treatment. 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.
Usually a combination of external and internal factors. Environmental factors such as sun, weather damage and seasonal changes can strip away the fatty oils, leaving your skin unprotected. Less often, the cause is internal; a health condition or genetic predisposition.
