Some individuals have dry skin while others have oily skin; of course, some people are blessed with perfect skin, but did you know some people are genetically predisposed to have both dry and oily skin? In the dermatological field, we refer to this as “combination skin.” Prolonged exposure to dry weather conditions, hot water, and certain chemicals and detergents can cause dry skin. The medical term for extremely dry, chapped skin is dermatitis, with three common conditions referred to as Contact, Seborrheic, and Atopic dermatitis (eczema).
Underlying medical conditions like psoriasis and type 2 diabetes can also lead to dermatitis. If you are experiencing occasional dry skin, then our line of moisturizing skincare products will likely improve or eliminate this issue. For more severe cases, it might be time to make an appointment with one of our aestheticians for a chemical peel or microneedling. Results from microneedling can be significantly enhanced when accompanied by a PRP treatment.
Oily skin caused by genetics and hormones can be tough to prevent, but avoiding unhealthy processed, fried, and high-glycemic foods may help. Oddly enough, treatment for oily skin is much the same as dry skin. A visit to one of our skin specialists will help you decide which treatments are right for your skin profile.
It’s best for combination skin types to meet with one of our aestheticians to help you formulate and customize a skin regimen perfect for your skin profile.
