Pollution and Skincare | Nicole Contos Insider Tips
Shout out to the Big Apple! It’s fast-paced energy makes it so unique. But some important caution for urban dwellers: you need to give your skin a little extra TLC. Say it with me: Pollution. Free radicals. UV Light. Environmental and Oxidative stress. The beloved city is chock full of them, and they damage the skin. Read more –> Oxidative Stress and the Skin.
That’s why I’m extremely excited to launch Smooth Synergy’s Premium Facial Menu. I have collaborated with our estheticians to carefully design this menu to include components that meet the needs of our on-the-go, NYC clientele.
You may be familiar with some of the pieces included in of our facials, such as: steaming, cleansing and extractions with high frequency. But we’ve also upgraded our menu to include elements like LED light therapy to reduce inflammation and soothe the skin. Here are a few more highlights, specifically crafted to fight environmental stress:
FOR NORMAL SKIN
SIGNATURE FACIAL WITH OXYGEN TREATMENT
Our signature facial reveals healthier, radiant skin. Our Oxygen treatment combats free radicals to smooth and soothe the skin. Atomized moisturizers are gentle steamed into the face for a relaxing treatment that instantly hydrates the skin and creates a plumper complexion.
FOR OILY / ACNEIC / CONGESTED SKIN
PURIFYING DEEP PORE CLEANSING FACIAL
Targeting the toxic buildup that produces acne, this deep pore cleansing facial is highly effective for clearing skin congestion. The key is either a glycolic acid peel, lactic acid peel or microdermabrasion to exfoliate the face and detox the skin. We follow with a relaxing LED Light Therapy treatment to kill the bacteria that causes acne and calms the skin. Finally, a medical-grade, antibacterial mask calms and restores balance to the face.
FOR SENSITIVE / INFLAMMATORY / ROSACEA SKIN
Oxidative stress can compromise the skin’s delicate, natural lipid barrier. Our skin-calming facial takes advantage of the power of Sqoom to heal the skin. Using ultrasound and magnetic field ionization, the Sqoom device opens up pathways in the skin for a cocktail of healing serums to penetrate deep within the skin. This process provides the skin with oxygen, increases blood circulation and promotes collagen growth. Finished with a soothing specialty mask.
FOR DRY / DULL / DEHYDRATED SKIN
VITAMIN C-RADIANCE FACIAL
Brighten your skin and improve tone and texture, while increasing cellular turnover. Vitamins C & E, natural fruit acids and botanical extracts are potent free radical busters. Two masks and a light peel are combined with a series of Vitamin-packed serums to boost hydration levels and reveal a luminous complexion.
BONUS TREATMENT TO COMBAT FREE RADICALS
MICRONEEDLING WITH MESO ANTIOXIDANT VITAMINS
Our estheticians use a microneedling pen to open up thousands of pathways in the skin at controlled depths, spacing and frequency. Vitamins B, C and E are infused deep within the skin to protect the cells from free radicals and environmental, oxidative stress.
It’s simple. You and your skin face the city streets everyday. We want Smooth Synergy to be your refuge.
