Best Cleveland Dry Skin Treatment | Facial Plastic Surgeon

Treatment for Dry Skin in Cleveland, Ohio

Hydrated and conditioned skin is both attractive and more comfortable to live in. Skin that is overly dry can make the face appear ashen or taut. Extremely dry skin can crack or bleed, and scratching itchy skin may cause more damage. Sometimes skin feels or looks dry because it needs a thorough exfoliation to shed the dead cells and reveal the fresh skin below. It might also need a more effective night cream, or more intense rejuvenating treatment.

What is causing my dry skin?

Dry skin might stem from genetics, sun exposure, aging, product use, or certain medications. You may have tried many serums and moisturizers, to varying results. Maybe acne treatment has addressed your acne but left your skin dry by decreasing your skin’s natural oils. Then there are environmental effects to consider. Do you take long, hot showers? Do you steam your face, hoping to add plumpness and hydration? Extreme heat can dry your skin, and when coupled with water, will strip away inherent moisture in your skin.

What are my dry skin treatment options?

Various methods of skin resurfacing are effective treatments for dry skin. Microdermabrasion is an abrasive treatment that “sands” the skin, improving its texture. A chemical peel is applied to the skin at varying depths in order to remove its outer layers, also for more superficial uses. Laser treatment concentrates light to remove the outer layers of skin and stimulate the growth of the remaining collagen.

Can Microneedling by a Cleveland Plastic Surgeon Help With Dry Skin?

Microneedling is another effective treatment. Small needles are introduced into the skin creating microscopic channels or holes. This can stimulate collagen and elastin production. Skincare products can also be used in conjunction with microneedling to increase penetration of the product, and overall hydration of the skin.

  • Dr Ponsky’s staff are full of energy and very friendly. They are extremely personable, and worked to ensure that I felt comfortable and had everything I needed (down to a blanket during the procedure). Dr Ponsky is thorough, sweet, and gentle in her explanations. She made sure to explain the answers to each of my questions and I never felt rushed/forced to make a decision. I love the fact that we could do the entire procedure under local anesthesia.
