11 Mar Spring Treatments for Dry Skin
Dry skin is a problem year-round in Arizona, but, in spring, when temperatures really start to creep up, it’s time to take action. Spectrum Dermatology offers a wide range of Arizona skin treatments so that the largest organ of your body doesn’t start resembling one of our desert-dwelling lizards. Treat yourself to spring treatments to keep skin hydrated, moisturized, healthy, and happy.
- Microneedling is a simple process where micro-injuries are created in the skin in order to increase cell turnover and encourage collagen production. Collagen and elastin are natural ingredients in the body that keep skin supple and dewy. However, we produce less of these products with age. Microneedling can encourage the body to increase production, which optimizes suppleness from the inside out.
- Microdermabrasion is another favorite spring treatment. It is an expert-level exfoliation treatment that removes the dead skin cells. Healthier skin below the surface is revealed, and skin cell regeneration is increased so that the benefits continue for several weeks.
- PRP, or platelet-rich plasma injections, are often coupled with procedures like microneedling to increase collagen production further. PRP takes the powerful growth factors in your blood, concentrates them, and these are injected directly into the targeted areas. It’s a compliment to a dry skin treatment and became colloquially known as the “vampire facial.” However, only two teaspoons of blood are needed for maximum benefits.
Combining any in-office procedure with the right products will improve results. Your at-home skin regimen is just as important when it comes to creating healthy skin. ZO Skin Health is one of the top-rated medical-grade skin care products on the market. These formulations are only available at dermatology offices and can treat a wide range of skin issues including excessively dry skin.
