Dry skin appears as flaky, rough-looking skin, often feeling tight, itchy and uncomfortable. It can be both a temporary and lifelong condition, depending on your skin type and how it is managed.
Your skin type can be naturally dry and so will require more hydration than other skin types, and dry skin can be made worse by things like ageing, harsh soaps and skincare, as well as hot baths and indoor heating. There are certain skin conditions that can cause dry skin, too, such as psoriasis and eczema.
Microneedling, chemical peels, skin boosters and profhilo are the best ways to approach dry skin. Microneedling and chemical peels help to promote exfoliation of the top layer of damaged skin, and encourage the production of collagen and elastin to help the skin to renew – and hydrate – itself. These treatments can be used in conjunction with a medical-grade, hydrating skincare for best results.
Dr Raquel Skin & Medical Cosmetics also offers injectable hyaluronic acid treatments, which hydrate and deeply moisturise your skin, making it look more youthful and glowy.
I am passionate about achieving exceptional, natural-looking results whilst keeping patient safety as a priority. I am committed to ethical aesthetic practice, always putting my patients’ welfare first. I will never recommend a treatment or product that I don’t personally endorse and have an in-depth knowledge about and experience of working with.
All treatments are tailored to each individual patient and that is why I will take the time to develop the most medically appropriate treatment for you. I will always try to offer you the best price possible, while never sacrificing the quality of care and level of results. I will always be mindful of my patients’ budget, offering honest advice and tailored treatments.
Ensuring that all patients go home with a positive experience and great, natural-looking results is my primary goal.
We are all unique. This means that treatment plans, the results, downtime and recovery following treatment will vary from patient to patient. The information I provide is based on the experience I have gained from treating a wide variety of patients, both men and women, of different ages, and is based on an average treatment experience. For more accurate information about how the treatment experience would be for you, please book a one-to-one consultation with me.
