About dull, rough or dry skin

Dull dehydrated skin where skin feels rough, is dull or flakey and appears dry is a common concern. Lack of hydration or lack of oils in the top layer of the skin is the primary cause of dull dehydrated skin.

What causes dull, rough, dry skin?

Dull, rough or dry skin is due to water loss from the outer layer of skin and can e due to a number of factors:

  • Heat: heaters reduce humidity
  • Environment: cold, windy conditions or low-humidity climates.
  • Long hot showers/baths:  Can dry your skin. 
  • Harsh soaps and detergents: soaps, detergents strip moisture  
  • Skin conditions: skin conditions such as eczema or psoriasis are more likely to have dry skin.
  • Medical treatments:  treatment for cancer, dialysis or taking certain medications can cause dry, rough skin.
  • Ageing: ageing reduces the production of oils needed for the skin to retain water.  

How do skin treatments work?

Skin treatments work to infuse peptides and vitamins deep into the skin layers to hydrate and nourish the skin. Skin treatments also work to trigger the production of collagen to plump and hydrate dull, rough, dry skin.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does an Intraceuticals Oxygen Treatment work?

How does sonopheresis work?

Ascend skin clinics uses the asap microplus+ machine, designed and built in Australia to deliver sonopheresis. Sonophoresis is a relaxing, non-invasive treatment that uses ultrasonic (soundwave) technology that has been shown to increase the penetration and absorption of active ingredients by up to 800%. This warm, massaging treatment increases skin circulation and toning leaving the skin feeling smooth, firm and hydrated. It is suitable for all skin types and delivers excellent results.

What are the benefits of an ASAP microdermabrasion plus medi facial?

An ASAP microplus+ medi-facial is more than a facial. Microplus+ combines the benefits of clinical grade microdermabrasion and sonophoresis for maximum skin correcting results.

Microdermabrasion is one of the best anti-ageing skin care treatments available. This safe and painless treatment accelerates the exfoliation of dead skin cells which in turn stimulates new cell growth and the renewal of collagen. Using a gentle vacuuming system and diamond tips, microdermabrasion removes dull, dead skin cells, unclogs pores and polishes the skin. It is a non-invasive treatment that can be used to treat a number of skin concerns, on any part of the body, with no downtime. Microdermabrasion perfectly prepares the skin’s surface for the enhanced infusion of active ingredients applied during a sonophoresis treatment.
