Help! My Skin Is Always Dry

Help! My Skin Is Always Dry

It can be challenging to stay hydrated and smooth, especially if you have dry, sensitive skin. While gentle cleansers, moisturizers, and other skin care products can reduce symptoms, regular trips to the spa can help you stay ahead of the problem. Our specialists can evaluate your skin and suggest treatments that suit you. 

At New Image Medical Spa in Fremont, California, Surinder Sandhu, MD, offers a range of treatments for dry skin, including chemical peels and microneedling with platelet-rich plasma. 

Common causes of dry skin 

Dry skin, also known as xeroderma, occurs when the skin becomes dry and itchy. It can also lead to changes in skin tone and texture, causing it to look rough, ashy, or cracked like a riverbed. In more severe cases, the skin can become inflamed and tight, sometimes even splitting and bleeding. 

There are many reasons you might be experiencing dry skin, including: 

To reduce dryness, you can make changes to your skincare routine and living environment. A humidifier can help keep spaces from becoming too arid while running heaters or feeding a fire. Every skin care lineup should include sunscreen, a gentle cleanser, and moisturizers. Avoid things that sting or make your face feel tight. 

Best treatments for dry skin 

New Image Medical Spa is the best solution when at-home skin care fails to alleviate dry skin. Dr. Sandhu offers several treatments for dry skin, including chemical peels and microneedling. 

We highly recommend chemical peels for dry skin. Your skin naturally sheds over time, but dryness causes premature flaking and peeling. Dr. Sandhu can strip the entire layer using a mild chemical solution, allowing you to start fresh with the new skin underneath. The best part? You can receive superficial peels regularly, helping you stay on top of your dry skin. 

Microneedling can also help, especially when combined with other treatments like PRP therapy. By targeting the tapestry of your skin, microneedling with PRP can transform your skin’s texture. 

The tiny punctures produced during microneedling stimulate your body’s natural healing response, which the platelet-rich plasma boosts. This encourages blood flow and reinforces the proteins that make up your skin, reducing dryness. 

To learn more about chemical peels, microneedling, and PRP facials, call 510-269-2324 to schedule a consultation with Dr. Sandhu or request an appointment online.
