Skin Care Q & A

Why is skin care important?

Your skin is your body’s first line of defense against infections. The outer layer keeps the deeper layers hydrated and protected at the cost of weathering and damage over time. Keeping your skin clean and hydrated slows the aging process, minimizing wrinkles, spots, and roughness.

Over time, the outermost layer of your skin becomes thinner and weaker as your body produces less collagen and elastin. Taking care of your skin means keeping this protective layer hydrated and strong.

What are my options for skin care?

Primary & Urgent Care offers several of today’s most innovative skin care treatments. You can revitalize your skin with:

Microneedling

Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment that uses your body’s natural healing abilities to improve your skin. During a microneedling session, your provider applies a numbing cream so you don’t feel the needles.

Then, they make tiny pinpricks into your skin with a microneedling device. The small injuries prompt your skin to produce more collagen to give your skin structure and hydration.

Intense pulsed light (IPL)

IPL skin rejuvenation treatments use energy from intense lights to heat and destroy dark pigmented spots on your skin. It can target and reduce the appearance of age spots, sun damage, freckles, broken blood vessels, and even redness from rosacea.

Chemical peels

A chemical peel is a facial treatment that exfoliates and removes the top, damaged layer of your skin. The newly exposed layer is smoother and has fewer wrinkles, spots, scars, and lines. You can choose a superficial peel for mild skin damage or a deep peel for dramatic results.

How can I take care of my skin at home?

Between microneedling appointments, chemical peels, and other medical skin care procedures, there are steps you can add to your daily routine to maintain the healthy glow of your skin. At home, you should:

  • Wash your face once or twice a day
  • Use a lightweight moisturizer
  • Use sunscreen
  • Use vitamin serums
  • Drink plenty of water
  • Change your pillowcase frequently

It’s always a good idea to test skin products on a patch of your skin before diving in and using them daily. The team at Primary & Urgent Care can give you suggestions for skin care products to use based on your skin tone, texture, and sensitivity.

After years of weathering and protection, your skin deserves a pick-me-up. To explore the available skin care treatments, call Primary & Urgent Care today.
