Common Skincare Myths | Nicole Contos Insiders Tips
This month, I’m shining a spotlight on our estheticians. They represent the best of Smooth Synergy — bringing skill, warmth and caring to each treatment they perform. Michele and Marina are on the spa floor everyday with their ears to the ground. Here are some of common skin myths they hear in the spa everyday:
I only need a Facial when I break out or for special occasions.
Periodic Facials are necessary for skin health. Your self-care routine includes trips to the hair salon and dentist. A regular Facial is similar for your skin. From pollution detox to increased blood circulation and cellular turnover, the result of a monthly facial routine is healthy skin that’s nourished, hydrated, smooth, clean and clear.
Chemical Peels will burn my skin and cause scarring.
Chemical Peels do not hurt or damage the skin. You may feel a slight tingling, tightness or temperature change during treatment, followed by some skin sensitivity afterwards. End of story. The rewards? As we age, cell renewal decreases by half. A Peel once a month will coax cellular turnover for a healthy glow.
All Laser Hair Removal is the same.
This myth can literally burn you. All too often, clients come from another spa saying Laser Hair Removal was either completely ineffective or burned their skin. The truth is that the Laser Hair Removal equipment matters, and so does the skill of the technician using it. An experienced practitioner needs to make sure the laser is right for your skin tone, in order maximize hair removal results with minimal risks. Smooth Synergy offers top-of-the-line laser technology combined with a wealth of experience. For some perspective, we’ve been doing Laser Hair Removal since 2002!
