Sensitive / Reactive / Compromised / Problematic Skin

Sensitive / Reactive / Compromised / Problematic Skin is a condition where the nerve endings in the epidermis (top layer of skin) become inflamed and irritated as a result of the skin’s natural barrier function breaking down and allowing irritants to penetrate the skin. Most commonly affecting the face, it can occur anywhere on the body. While women are more likely to experience this condition due to higher use of facial skincare products, men are not immune and may in fact experience stronger symptoms due to their general lack of skincare cleansing and protection routine.

This condition presents a variety of symptoms including:

  • Dry, tight, rough, scaly or flaky skin
  • Rashes, redness and blemishes and easily flushes
  • Itching, burning and swelling
  • Reactions to skincare products and household chemicals

Internal triggers include:

  • Dehydration and dry skin associated with impaired skin’s protection barrier
  • Genetics
  • Ageing in older people
  • Poor diet, nutrition and hydration
  • Stress, anxiety and lack of sleep
  • Hormonal changes
  • Skin disorders such as rosacea, eczema and acne

External triggers include:

  • Allergic skin reactions (to certain ingredients in skincare products, makeup, fragrances/perfumes, shaving creams and aftershaves)
  • UV damage from sun or tanning bed exposure
  • Weather extremes (harsh winds, extreme heat and cold) and pollution
  • Lifestyle and smoking
  • Poor skincare routine

Renajo Skin Clinic follows a unique Three Step holistic approach:

  • Step 1 – We invest significant time in your initial skin consultation to listen and fully understand your skin concerns, identify the contributing factors, your needs and goals.
  • Step 2 – Next is an in-depth diagnostic assessment of your skin at the deeper levels which will reveal its true condition and health, and expose any hidden issues before they come to the surface.
  • Step 3 – We present you with honest feedback, a range of appropriate treatment options, prescriptive skincare specific to your skin’s needs, and explain the results you can expect. We also guide you on improving and maintaining your results through diet and nutrition.

On their own, all of our treatments deliver effective results. When combined in a complementary multi-treatment program (Super-Charged Combination Therapy), they work at different levels within your skin to deliver visibly superior, more effective, targeted and longer-lasting results.

All treatments are performed by a fully-qualified and paramedically-trained skin clinician who will customise a treatment plan to suit your needs. See Testimonials for what others have to say about Renajo.
