The benefits of skin hydration treatments

There are a number of aesthetic treatments available that will hydrate and nourish the skin, bringing a range of benefits. But what are these different treatments? And what benefits can you expect?

What are the different skin hydration treatments?

Opting for a skin hydration treatment is a popular choice for improving the appearance and health of the skin. Two commonly used treatments are Profhilo and chemical peels. Both treatments offer numerous benefits that can help rejuvenate and refresh the skin.

Profhilo is an unique injectable therapy that promotes skin hydration and renewal. It entails injecting hyaluronic acid gel into the skin in designated locations. This hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that is found throughout the human body and helps to keep the skin plump and hydrated.  Hyaluronic acid production declines with age, which can result in wrinkles and drooping or sagging skin. Injections of Profhilo help to replenish the skin’s natural hyaluronic acid levels, which in turn serves to enhance the skin’s tone, moisture, and texture.

Another popular skin hydration method that can help to renew the skin is a chemical peel. A lightly acidic solution is applied to the skin during a chemical peel, and this helps to remove the outer layer of dead skin cells. As a result, new skin cells can replace the old ones, enhancing the skins tone, texture and hydrations levels.  

What are the benefits of skin hydration treatments?

Skin hydration treatments can bring a wide range of benefits and advantages for your skin. These include:

  • Providing much needed hydration and nutrition
  • Improving skin condition
  • Reducing signs of ageing

Hydration and nutrition for your skin

Both Profhilo and chemical peels can help to hydrate and nourish the skin. This provides vital moisture for essential skin cells that can help to revive and refresh the skin.

Profhilo treatments involve injecting a high concentration of hyaluronic acid directly in to the skin, which helps to improve its moisture content. This can help to replace lost moisture, add volume, and refresh skin cells, including collagen. Collagen is a protein that is essential for maintaining the skin’s elasticity and firmness. As a natural part of the ageing process, our body produces less collagen, and this leads to sagging skin and wrinkles. By improving the production of collagen, Profhilo treatments can help to improve the skin’s elasticity and firmness.

Chemical peels are most commonly known for their ability to exfoliate the skin, allowing fresher, more hydrated skin cells to replace the outer cells that may be dehydrated or dull. However, in addition to this, chemical peels can also improve the function of hydrating creams and moisturisers, when applied after treatment. This can help to nourish skin cells and add vital moisture, where it is needed.

Improving skin condition

In addition to hydrating and adding moisture to the skin both chemical peels and Profhilo treatments can help to improve the condition of the skin. 

By adding moisture and boosting the collagen production, Profhilo treatments can help to smooth the skin and improve skin texture. Chemical peels can also help to improve the tone and texture of the skin by removing dry and dead skin cells, for a smooth and even result.
