A Restorative Mask for Sensitive Skin

If you have damaged or sensitive skin, it can sometimes feel like you get left out of the conversation when it comes to facial treatments. You have to consider more variables when choosing what’s right for you and probably need to stay away from treatments that might aggravate your skin, dry you out, or cause additional damage. More invasive treatments, like skin ablation or resurfacing, are most likely out of reach as well. 

Thankfully, not everyone has forgotten about those with sensitive and damaged skin. If this is your skin type, come see our team at Qvita Health & Wellness. Our CEO and leader, Panagiota (Peggy) Demetriou, ARNP, FNP-BC, is proud to offer you a wide range of primary care and cosmetic services. Our practice uses a holistic approach to deliver comprehensive health care that considers all sides of the equation. 

We’ll work with you to find treatments that work well with your skin and help you feel refreshed. For instance, our masks are perfect for sensitive, damaged, or recently treated skin. Learn more to see if they could be the treatment you’ve been looking for.

On sensitive skin

Almost every ad for skincare seems to tout its benefits for sensitive skin, but what does the term mean exactly? As you may have guessed, “sensitive skin” isn’t a clinical term.

Our Masks

At Qvita Health & Wellness, we’ve found that masks are perfect for damaged, sensitive, or recently treated skin. These masks have gentle, restorative properties. Both go well with a retinol booster for deep exfoliation.

SkinCeuticals Biocellulose Restorative Masque

This mask is made of a light, breathable material that mimics the skin’s natural barrier to facilitate the recovery process and restore your skin. The fibers are infused with heat-reducing water to cool and soothe irritation. It will leave you feeling healthy and radiant.

SkinCeuticals Phyto Corrective Masque

This mask is composed of highly-concentrated botanical extracts, a calming dipeptide, and hyaluronic acid to intensively soothe and replenish temporary skin reactivity. It’s a Zen master that helps your skin feel cool, comfortable, and restored. It is especially effective post-treatment and has been shown to decrease redness and discomfort.

Could your sensitive skin use a boost? A mask may be the answer. Call or book an appointment at our Wesley Chapel office today.
