Maintaining Healthy Skin

Healthy, glowing skin can be seen as a reflection of your overall wellness. However, due to several internal and external factors, it may lose its radiance and become dull, dry, and wrinkled.

The Skin Barrier

The skin is the largest organ in our body and serves as a vital shield between our internal organs and the outside world. The outermost layer of the skin, known as the epidermis, contains a protective skin barrier, the stratum corneum. This barrier helps to maintain the integrity of the skin by preventing the entry of harmful substances and retaining moisture. 

The skin barrier also has a complex microbiome and acid mantle that are crucial for the immune response and inflammation regulation. When it is compromised, it can lead to a host of skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, acne, rosacea, and sensitive skin. 

What Affects My Skin’s Health?

Aging, sun damage, and other environmental factors can weaken the skin barrier’s function, leading to dehydration and increased permeability.


Many physical and biological changes in the face occur as a result of aging. As well as a gradual decline in essential skin components like collagen and elastin, we must deal with: (1)

  • The long-term effects of gravity
  • Volume loss
  • Adipose tissue (fat) redistribution 
  • Bony skeleton deterioratio

Aging can take a toll on the skin, leading to fine lines, wrinkles, and a loss of elasticity. But skin health is not just about how good it looks on the outside, but also about how well it functions on the inside.

Internal (intrinsic) and external (extrinsic) factors affect skin health, these include the following: (1)

Intrinsic Factors

  • Genetics 
  • Cellular Metabolism
  • Hormone Processes
  • Metabolic Processes 

Extrinsic Factors

  • UV Light Exposure
  • Pollution
  • Ionizing Radiation
  • Chemicals
  • Toxins

What is Oxidative Stress?

Oxidative stress is a natural process that occurs in the body when there is an imbalance between free radicals and antioxidants. This imbalance can cause damage to cells, including skin cells, leading to premature aging and other skin concerns. (2) UV radiation is a major cause of oxidative stress in the skin, as is inflammation. 

Achieving Healthy Skin

The skin barrier is a vital component of the body’s immune system and plays a crucial role in maintaining healthy skin. There are many ways to maintain a healthy skin barrier, including the following:

  • Wash with warm water
  • Exfoliate regularly
  • Moisturize regularly
  • Wear a high SPF sunscreen
  • Reduce stress
  • Get enough sleep
  • Drink plenty of water
  • Get a HydraFacial!

The HydraFacial is an excellent choice for those looking for a quick and effective way to improve their skin health. It’s suitable for all skin types and can help address a variety of concerns, including anti-aging, sun damage, hyperpigmentation, acne, and more. Moreover, its customizable serums can provide essential antioxidant protection for dry, blemish-prone, or sun-damaged skin.

HydraFacial’s Multi-Step Process

The HydraFacial is a non-invasive, pain-free procedure that involves deep cleansing, exfoliation, hydration, extraction, and infusion of serums containing antioxidants, peptides, and other nourishing ingredients.

At Carolina Plastic Surgery of Fayetteville, we offer HydraFacial treatments that are tailored to your individual needs. We’re dedicated to ensuring that you achieve the best possible results, leaving you with healthy, radiant skin that you will love. Contact us today at (910) 323-1234 to schedule your HydraFacial appointment with Dr. Saini.

  • Cleanse – The first step removes any makeup or dirt on the surface of the skin. 
  • Exfoliate – We use a special device that exfoliates the skin and removes dead skin cells. This helps to resurface the skin and improve its texture.
  • Hydrate – A hydrating serum that penetrates deep into the skin to provide moisture and nourishment. 
  • Extract – Extraction removes blackheads, whiteheads, and other impurities from the skin. This step provides a deep cleansing that can be difficult to achieve with regular at-home skincare routines.
  • Nourish – The HydraFacial device infuses the skin with serums containing antioxidants, peptides, and other nourishing ingredients. 

How Can a HydraFacial Improve My Skin’s Health?

The HydraFacial can help improve skin health in several ways. First, it cleanses the skin by removing dirt, oil, and impurities from the surface and pores. This helps prevent acne breakouts and reduces the appearance of blackheads and whiteheads. Second, the exfoliation step removes dead skin cells, revealing smoother, brighter, more youthful-looking skin. Third, the extraction step uses suction to remove impurities and unclog pores, improving the overall texture of the skin. Fourth, the hydration step restores moisture to the skin, leaving it feeling soft and supple. Finally, the antioxidant protection step delivers powerful antioxidants to the skin, protecting against environmental damage and promoting overall skin health.

Key Benefits

Here are some of the benefits that you can expect from a HydraFacial:

  • Deep Cleansing: A HydraFacial deeply cleanses and exfoliates your skin, removing dirt, oil, and impurities that can clog pores and cause breakouts.
  • Customizable: The procedure can be customized to meet your unique skincare needs, targeting specific issues such as hyperpigmentation, acne, or sun damage.
  • Safe and Gentle: HydraFacial is safe and gentle for all skin types, including sensitive skin.
  • Immediate Results: You will see an immediate improvement in the appearance and texture of your skin after just one treatment.
  • No Downtime: There is no downtime required after the procedure, so you can return to your normal activities immediately.

Corresponding Treatments

Chemical Peel

If you’re not opting for a HydraFacial, why not choose a chemical peel? This classic resurfacing treatment uses a special solution to remove the outermost layer of the skin. By doing so, it stimulates collagen and elastin production, reduces inflammation and redness, and promotes cell turnover, revealing smoother, brighter, and more even-toned skin. we will select the appropriate type based on your skin type, condition, and goals.


For an alternative skin-refreshing experience, patients can undergo a dermaplaning procedure. Not only can treatment remove dirt and debris manually with a sharp surgical blade, but it can also get rid of the fine “peach fuzz” on your face. Like the HydraFacial, the procedure is short, simple, and requires no downtime.


There are many non-invasive ways to get clearer, smoother skin. And although the HydraFacial is an extremely effective exfoliation option, microdermabrasion is a strong competitor. Experience softer, toned, refreshed skin as tiny crystals work to remove dirt and debris from the surface with this effective in-office treatment.
