Sensitive Skin/ Impaired Skin Barrier


Is your face consistently flaky, itchy, red, or prone to acne year-round? You might be dealing with a damaged skin barrier or sensitive skin. Research shows that 30-40% of the population has sensitive skin, often tied to barrier impairment. Any mishandling or improper skincare routines can worsen the situation. Explore how our aesthetic treatments offer relief by soothing sensitivity and rebuilding the skin barrier.

What is sensitive skin?

Sensitive skin is a condition where the skin's protective barrier is compromised, leading to heightened sensitivity to external irritants. This can result in redness, bumps, tingling sensations, and intolerance to regular skincare products.


1. Aggressive Products:
   Products with hormones, fragrance, or high acid concentrations can cause skin irritation.

2. Overwashing and Exfoliation:
   Excessive washing or aggressive exfoliation damages the sebum barrier, weakening skin protection.

3. Skin Diseases:
   Conditions like rosacea, hormone-dependent dermatitis, or lupus erythematosus threaten the skin barrier.

4. External Stressors:
   Extreme weather, UV exposure, and pollution can damage the barrier, causing facial redness.

Dehydrated skin presents itself with an unhealthy appearance, including tightness, dullness, cracking, fine dry lines, and flaky makeup. It can also lead to a tingling and sensitive sensation.

Affected People

  1. Skin Sensations: Feels tight, tingling, burning, or itching.

  2. Stratum Corneum Changes: Thinning leads to allergies and redness.

  3. Temperature-Triggered Redness: Faces reddens and heats up in extreme temperatures.

  4. Flakiness and Dehydration: Skin feels flaky, dry, and struggles to retain water, resisting improvement with moisturizer.

  5. Recurrent Closed Comedones: Repeated outbreaks in small areas persist after treatment.

  6. Sensitivity to Stimulation: Prone to allergic reactions with mild stimulation.

  7. Persistent Inflammation: Ongoing inflammation results in a tired appearance.

1. Hydrafacial

How Hydrafacial Treats Sensitive Skin:

Hydrafacial treatment utilizes an exclusive formula essence and patented VORTEX two-way vacuum technology to exfoliate the skin, quickly open pores, and non-invasively clear out blackheads, whiteheads, debris, and dirt. Simultaneously, the nourishing essence is absorbed, promoting cellular metabolism and restoring the skin's oil-water balance for a cleaner and healthier complexion. In just 30 minutes, the three-step process of cleansing, extraction, and hydration leaves your skin refreshed. Personalized plans are available based on your skin condition, location, and desired results.

These serums penetrate deeply, providing intense hydration and essential nutrients to the skin.
