What is Oily and Dry Skin?

Sebum, or oil, is produced by your pores and has the goal of keeping your skin hydrated and protected. It works as a natural moisturizer, but too much oil can clog the pores and cause acne. When your skin doesn’t produce enough sebum, it can allow the skin to dry out.

Oily and dry skin are typically thought of as separate types of skin, but they are often related. Oily skin is sometimes the result of dryness, prompting the skin to produce too much oil. On the other hand, dry skin can be caused by not enough oil production. Either type of skin can take a toll on your skin, causing concerns like acne, texture, and aging.

What Causes Oily and Dry Skin?

Having oily or dry skin can be simply a genetic trait. However, it can also be caused by factors like certain skincare products, medications, or your environment. Things like stress, hormones, and aging can also contribute to skin type.

What are My Treatment Options for Oily and Dry Skin?

Treating skin that is too oily or dry can require both professional skincare treatments and at-home products. During a consultation, our team will help you develop a personalized treatment package for your needs.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are one of the most effective ways to control oil production and get rid of dryness. It works by applying a concentrated chemical solution that exfoliates the skin, revealing a new layer of healthy skin cells. It’s also an effective way to prevent congestion and future breakouts.


Microneedling can stimulate new collagen production by creating controlled wounds in the skin. By creating new collagen, your skin becomes better moisturized and requires less sebum production. It can also help remodel dry, textured skin.

Professional Skincare Products

Professional-grade skincare products can be a valuable part of your at-home regimen. Our team can help you find products to more effectively moisturize the skin and control oil production with active ingredients.

Our team can help you select the right moisturizer for your skin type as well as optimize your at-home regimen. With a regular package of treatments, you can achieve healthier skin.
