Skin Care Tip:
Dry versus Dehydrated Skin
Dry and dehydrated
skins are often confused because they both have the same effect on the
skin, such as feeling tight, rough and uncomfortable. They are two
different skin conditions because dry skin results from lack of
oil-production, while dehydrated skin results from lack of water.
Dry skin is usually
genetic and can even begin during menopause. Some people cause their
skin to become dry due to improper skin care products or harsh
ingredients, such as exfoliants. Dry skin becomes prone to skin
sensitivities because it loses its surface protection and harmful
bacteria and other factors can easily penetrate through the barrier
function of the skin’s surface.
Dehydrated skin has
little water due to moisture loss from improper skin care products,
mostly due to oily-skin production. Overexposure to water can also
dehydrate skin, as well as a harsh environment, such as wind or extreme
cold. It is best to use either a Hyaluronic or Liposome treatment
product under your moisturizer to help your skin retain moisture longer
and prevent or reverse dehydration.

Thigh Lift surgery
may last for several hours and is performed in a Surgery Center as an
Outpatient procedure. General anesthesia is usually required. During
surgery, your surgeon will tighten the underlying muscles that can cause
sagging and loose skin as well as remove the extra skin from the inner
or upper thigh area. You will have many deep internal stitches to hold
your muscles and skin tight together, with external stitches to
reinforce the deep stitches. A drainage tube will be inserted to drain
excess fluid from your body which helps ease swelling and prevent any
possible complications. The drainage tube is usually removed the day
after surgery. The external stitches are removed within 3 – 4 days
after surgery. Your Plastic Surgeon will continue to follow up with you
to ensure you are healing well and there are no complications.
