It's important to understand that our skin can be water dry (hyaluronic acid) or oil dry (lipids). It is usually common for younger skin to be more water dry and as we age our lipid production slows down and we become oil dry too. Dry skin is common as we age. Using thick heavy creams to cure dry skin can give the sensation that your skin is moisture-rich or hydrated. However, this is often a false sense of comfort and will actually slow down your skin’s natural sebum production. We understand the importance of well-hydrated skin and therefore, bring several dry skin treatments for you in Bondi Junction.
If you really want a treatment for dry skin and for your skin to maintain and replenish its hydration and moisture, you need to be using a highly concentrated active ingredient cosmeceutical skincare. Increasing your diet with omegas and essential fatty acids can help.
However, our skin is usually the last organ to receive anything, so this alone will not work. At You By Sia laser clinic, we recommend using Clinicals Cosmeceutical Skincare which will deliver directly to the skin, providing all the hydration and lipids required at an epidermal and dermal level. In conjunction we offer treatments such as our Moisture Intensive LED facial or our Nano Hydro and Nano Lipid Infusions.
LED light facial for dehydrated skin is non-invasive, painless, and a minimal downtime procedure. It nourishes the skin as it targets the parts that are hard to hit with injectables and Botox. LED treatments take up only a few minutes.

Dry skin can be caused by several factors including genetics, diet, lack of nutrient delivery, dehydration, inflammation and overuse of chemicals, or exfoliants. These cause the skin to become dehydrated through removal or impairing the skin natural moisture barrier, the epidermal barrier.
It's important to understand that our skin can be water dry, mended by an infusion of hyaluronic acid, or oil dry mended by an infusion of lipids. So before seeking out a dry skin treatment, it is best to work out the cause first. It is usually common for younger skin to be more water dry, and as we age our lipid production slows down and we become oil dry, too.
Increasing your diet with omegas and essential fatty acids will help, but for severe cases of dehydrated skin, it is recommended to opt for an expert opinion and advanced skincare treatments.
