Estheticians Demystify Common Skincare Myths
Smooth Synergy would not be considered the best Medical Spa in NYC if it weren’t for our extremely talented estheticians. They’re on the spa floor everyday, making sure you look and feel your best. And, while they’re doing they’re magic, they hear a multitude of skincare myths and misconceptions from their clients. From “Does a Chemical Peel Hurt?” to “Will Dermaplaning Make my Hair Grow Back Thicker?”, here are Michele and Marina with the facts about the treatments they so skillfully perform or assist our on-site medical director with every day.
SKINCARE MYTHS: Dermaplaning
Will a Dermaplane treatment make my hair darker or thicker?
It’s true that a Dermaplaning tool removes the peach fuzz or vellus hair from the face. And that’s a good thing. Removing the hair, along with the top layer of dead skin cells, is why Dermaplaning is so highly effective at revealing baby soft skin that absorbs skincare product better and makes makeup application easier. And your hair will not grow back darker or thicker. Think about it: when was the last time you saw a balding man shave his head and magically grow a thick swath on top of his head? Likely never, right?!
SKINCARE MYTHS: Botox
Can I wait to get Botox?
Many people think that, by waiting to get Botox, they can save money. The truth is that there’s a body of evidence that Botox can prevent signs of aging. So, by investing in your skin upfront with preventative Botox, you can stop wrinkles now instead of having to correct the inevitable effects of aging later.
SKINCARE MYTHS: Chemical Peel
Do Chemical Peels hurt? Will a Chemical Peel cause pain and scarring?
Chemical Peels do not hurt…when the right chemical solution for your skin type is properly applied to the skin. Basically, what we are saying here is to skip the DIY Chemical Peel and head to the professionals. A DIY Home Chemical Peel can leave you with a whole range of problems. Either it’s too weak and, thus, ineffective — unlike the medical grade solutions offered at a Med Spa. Or the Chemical Peel is too strong and damages the skin — either it’s not the right formula for your skin or you don’t have the experience in handling a potent chemical solution. At Smooth Synergy, we have the experience and expertise in choosing and applying a chemical peel to reap the most rewards for your skin with the least risks.
