Treatment for Oily skin Beaconsfield

Do you feel you have Oily Skin?

Oily Skin

When the sebaceous glands in the skin make too much sebum, then Oily skin develops which can be felt clearly on the skin. Sebum is an oily, wax-like substance that hydrates the skin, but also helps to protect it. Too much of this sebum can then cause the pores to block. Those blocked pores can then lead to large open pores, blackheads, pimples, acne. Oily skin will show in complexion as shiny or greasy. Looking closely, large open pores will be visible. The skin may look thick if it is indeed, Oily.

A well-advised good home skincare regime is a great starting place. However, at Skin Revision, we are used to treating Oily skin and working together to manage it over the long term. The correct in-clinic treatment and correct skincare products, that work only for your skin, will allow you to be free of Oily skin, blackheads, acne, etc, over the long term.

Do you feel you have Sensitive Skin?

There may be a misconception when it comes to sensitive skin. It is not necessarily due to you having a reaction to a household product etc. Your skin is likely to be sensitive and reactionary if:

  • The skin suffers reactions such as small or large bumps
  • Becomes very dry and worn. In doing so the skin fails to protect its nerve endings very well.
  • Your skin frequently or infrequently, reddens, blushes, or flushes.

What are the Skin treatments for Oily, Sensitive and Dry Skin?

You would begin with a consultation at Skin Revision in Beaconsfield where Jacqui Bannister would then be able to understand whether you had oily skin, sensitive, dry skin, or even compromised skin.  Once she had diagnosed the skin type, she would advise of a specific treatment,  treatment plan, and products to remedy the skin issues you may have.

What are the causes of Dry Skin?

  • Colder temperatures and the lowering of humidity levels can dehydrate the skin
  • Hormone levels will change over time and as one ages.  This leads to a decrease in oily sebum production.
  • Genetics means that some people produce less sebum, which means less oil in the skin.
  • Hot showers create hot steam which aggravates the skin causing it to dry out.
  • Washing your face too often will dry out the skin by ripping it off its natural moisture levels.
  • Wrong soap usage means that the chemicals within the soap will react with the skin and dry it out.
  • Dry skin is characterised by a lack of moisture and natural oils in the epidermis.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use makeup to cover my Oily skin?

Not really because some makeup products are oil-based which could make things worse for you. Oily makeup will clog the pores which will lead to blackheads, spots, and larger open pores. You may wish to try makeup that is water-based if you feel you really do need to wear makeup.

Is Aloe Vera good for Oily skin?

Aloe Vera is good for some people suffering from Oily skin. It can leave the skin moist and protected. An article in 2004 from “Trusted Source” found that Aloe Veera was actually a good moisturiser to use for oily skin. However, it would be best to still get advice from the Skin Revision Clinic, as the product may contain denatured alcohol, which may dry out and irritate the skin.

I think I have Oily Skin but how can I be sure?

Once you are at the clinic, I will be able to assess your skin under the scanner. I can usually tell from experience however, whether your skin is, in fact, oily or not. It is very common for people to think they have oily skin, and yet it turns out that the skin is compromised. (compromised skin barrier with lipid dryness) The skin is de-hydrated which means your sebaceous glands, which produce your skin oil. This means that it is producing more oil than necessary to compensate for the lack of moisture.

What can I do for de-hydrated skin?

It really is , what not to do.
Do not over cleanse
Do not over exfoliate
Do not use harsh ingredients or products
Try and avoid too much heat or artificial cold in the house or office or car spaces.

Seek specialist advice, such as Skin Revision, in order to make sure you are using the correct skincare for your skin.

Stay well hydrated

What can you do for sensitive skin?

If I determine that you have sensitive skin, I would work out a treatment plan to repair your skin barrier function. This will help to relieve the lipid dryness.
I would probably use DMK Skin Revision and LED light therapy.

The best ways to try and avoid getting sensitive skin is
Do not over cleanse
Do not over exfoliate
Do not use harsh ingredients or products
Stay well hydrated
