What causes sensitive skin?

Sensitive skin is easily irritated —you may experience redness, blotchiness, dryness, itching, or other negative reactions when exposed to triggers like environmental factors or harsh chemicals. Some triggers are responsible for damaging the skin's protective layers, which means you’re more vulnerable to damage.

People get frustrated with sensitive skin in Dallas because they can't turn to just any skin care product or treatment. The best way to care for your complexion is by using gentle and nonirritating solutions.

There are many reasons you may have sensitive skin, but some of the most common ones include:

  • Environmental factors, like wind and sun exposure

  • Hormonal changes, especially during pregnancy or menopause

  • Certain medications or drugs

  • Skin conditions, such as psoriasis and eczema

How does a HydraFacial help?

A HydraFacial is an excellent skin care treatment for sensitive skin because it's designed to be nonirritating. It uses a combination of cleansing, exfoliating, and hydrating elements to remove impurities and improve your skin health. HydraFacials also restore your skin's natural protective barrier, which may reduce sensitivity over time.

When sensitive skin is a challenge, Dr. Dauwe recommends a HydraFacial before other procedures, like chemical peels. These procedures may cause your skin to be more irritated than normal. Instead, we can personalize your HydraFacial so you can get the results you want without negative side effects or downtime. Patients can easily return to school or work without spending time in recovery.

What are some benefits of a HydraFacial?

HydraFacials are known for reducing unwanted signs of aging. Fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone, dry or flaky patches, clogged pores, and brown spots can all be improved with a HydraFacial. It may also improve the appearance of stretch marks and reduce pore size. Many patients who receive a HydraFacial report that their skin feels smoother, softer, and looks more radiant than before!
