Poor sensitive skin. It’s so helpless like a child. Just when you think it’s okay to remove the training wheels, it freaks out, and seemingly for no good reason. Well, it’s time to stop accepting its every tantrum. Just because skin is sensitive, doesn’t mean you have to suffer the effects. You just need to address where the issues stem from. That’s where you doctor can help out. Here’s how: With in-office treatments: Lasers Nonablative lasers like Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) and Vbeam can help alleviate sensitive and redness in the skin. Although multiple sessions are usually needed, some lasers also offer the added benefit of increased collagen production, which will help thicken the skin. Works best for rosacea-induced sensitivity. With topical products: Emollients and ointments These create a barrier on the skin to seal in moisture and protect it from the elements. The more hydrated the skin is, the better able it is to provide a layer of self-protection. Works best for persistently dry and itchy skin, common of eczema.
