A Year with Synergy 38


Hello, Gorgeous.


It’s hard to believe we’re finally ringing in a new year! Before we get ahead of ourselves, I wanted to take a moment to reflect. 2020 was a rollercoaster for everyone, and I am particularly proud of our team for adjusting and making the best out of a very uncertain situation. We’ve adapted with the times to put in some new policies and procedures to ensure the safest possible experience for our clients and patients and we’ve had so much fun connecting with our Synergy Squad from home! In this issue of our FeelSynergy magazine, we are highlighting our favorite products and services in our Winter Essentials Guide, as well as sharing tricks and tips from our Skin Experts on how to maintain glowing skin in the Winter. You can get to know our plastic surgery team, and learn how to fight the Zoom Gloom! As we move into the new year, I hope you’ll take the time to care for yourself. As simple as it may sound, we believe that looking your best and feeling your best go hand in hand. We hope that our team is able to provide some much needed self-care during this busy time. All in all, there is plenty to look forward to this season and we can’t wait to share it with you. Be sure to follow along with us on social media @feelsynergy for fun giveaways and the latest updates all season long!

Ask the Experts Healthy Skin Habits for the New Year


Your skin is the largest organ of the body, and it’s important that we take care of it. Now more than ever, we’re experiencing dry winter skin along with the dreaded “maskne”, so we asked some of our top skin providers to share their tips and tricks for maintaining healthy skin in the New Year.

Commit to Your Skincare Regimen W I T H K R I S T E N W I S E LY

First things first, sticking to your skincare routine is non-negotiable for healthy skin. As Aesthetician Kristen Wisely will tell you:

You can’t skip this step and have healthy skin. Kristen has been with Synergy for nine years and is primarily based at our Inside the Beltline location.

The skin is our first line of defense, so maintaining a strong skin barrier and well-hydrated epidermis can help defend against environmental aggressors like the sun and pollution.

Most people notice a visible difference the first time they use it, but the real game changer is that with consistent use, SkinMedica’s HA5 will teach your skin how to hold onto its own hyaluronic acid. 1212


K R I S T E N ' S R E C O M M E N DAT I O N S

Protect The Skin’s Barrier

1. 2. 3.

SkinMedica’s Lumivive System The Lumivive System is a two-part product pair: the daytime formula is loaded with antioxidants that help protect against environmental stressors, pollution, and bluelight, and the nighttime serum gives skin the energy it’s lacking, so it can repair and regenerate.

SkinMedica’s HA5 Specifically designed as a hydration serum that contains five kinds of hyaluronic acid, a substance found naturally in the skin, to provide the skin with short term and long term benefits.

AHA Product Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) product to combat signs of aging and to help exfoliate dead skin cells. The SkinMedica AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser is one of our favorites!

Ask the Experts Healthy Skin Habits for the New Year


Maintain with Regular Skin Services WITH AESTHETICIAN AND LASER SPECIALIST BRIDGET

Bridget has been with Synergy for twelve years and is our go-to expert when it comes to skin health.

The “glow” we all covet, comes from healthy skin cells which are plumper and reflect more light.

To keep skin glowing, one of Bridget’s favorite treatments is a Synergy Micropeel. This treatment combines the manual exfoliation of dermaplaning with a Level 1 Peel for added chemical exfoliation. This treatment gives your skin a fresh slate by sloughing off the dead layers of skin and allowing better product penetration, The combination of exfoliation methods helps keep the cell cycle on track and stimulates the body’s collagen production. 25 25

How To Avoid The Zoom Gloom With so many of us working from home we have become reliant on using apps like Zoom for video meetings with employers, classmates or even a happy hour catch-up with friends. While on a video call, it’s so easy to be hyper aware of your Zoom face (We all do it, don’t worry!) and catch the Zoom Gloom. Keep reading for our tips to look fresh on screen!

1.

Clean Up Include a cleaning treatment in your skin care maintenance routine. Start from within and treat those pesky “maskne” spots with a facial treatment. Masks are essential for everyone’s safety right now, but many masks actually absorb the natural moisture on your face and dry out skin in that area. We recommend our DiamondGlow treatment to rejuvenate dull, dry skin that is in need of moisture infusion. The DiamondGlow is 3-in-1 treatment that exfoliates, extracts and infuses customized serums to reveal glowing healthy skin with no downtime.

31 31


2.

Dissolve The Zoom Chin When we look at our face on Zoom, we see it straight on. If your camera isn't angled up high, you may notice an emphasis of sagging, loose skin around the chin and jowl (hence why we take selfies with our phone up high). We call this one the Zoom Chin... it’s the worst! Synergy Face + Body offers Kybella, a filler designed to address the double chin and dissolve its fat pocket.

Our P.A. Brooke Studley loves Kybella because, “it is a permanent solution to remove that stubborn double chin we all see while Zooming or taking selfies. Kybella is safe and has very little to no downtime, but if you happen to have minimal bruising now is a perfect time to get since we are wearing masks.” Kybella truly is a confidence booster that we love!

3.

Tighten Up + Refresh Hyaluronic acid fillers such as Juvéderm and Restylane can help restore loss of volume. These fillers can be used to enhance your lip volume, get rid of unwanted wrinkles and under eye bags on your face. After smoothing out wrinkles the shadowing will be less noticeable and you will have a more bright and restored appearance. Aside from fillers, Botox is always a classic staple in Synergy’s toolbox for preventing and freezing wrinkles. Our PA Brooke Studley even recommends a combination of Botox and strategically placed fillers for extra refresh to make you look vitalized and more rested when behind a screen.

3232


Zoom Ready Makeup Lashes can maximize your appearance! Synergy’s lead makeup artist, Kourtney Whicker says, “When you are achieving a zoom ready makeup look, really try to focus on the eyes. Many times on

4.

camera the eyes tend to get lost in the poor quality of lighting. This is a perfect time to play up the eyes and try something that you wouldn't typically do, I like to pop a lash on for added effect.” Play your eyes up, and try a bold look or lip because it won't be as bold on camera and who knows..you might start feeling comfortable and have a new found confidence trying something new.

Product Recommendations Now that we are on our digital devices more than ever, it's important to implement skin-care picks to shield skin against our screen’s blue light. Blue light contributes to aging and the

5.

breakdown of collagen, which leads to wrinkles and skin laxity. Our top pick is SkinMedica’s LUMIVIVE System that contains two serums to combat aging skin and create a protective barrier against screen damage and environmental pollutants.

Harsh overhead lights tend to accentuate under-eye shadows and dark circles when in front of a camera. If you find yourself wishing you should have covered up your under eye bags better after a Zoom call, we recommend SkinMedica Instant Bright eye cream.

Once you have your basic skincare routine down and a regular schedule for skin services, like peels, dermaplaning and/or microneedling, laser treatments are key for restoring radiance to tired skin.

Enhance With Laser Treatments WITH AESTHETICIANS KRISTEN AND BRIDGET

The fall and winter months are the most popular time for laser treatments because we aren’t spending as much time out in the sun, and the holidays help alleviate the burden of downtime for our more aggressive treatments. At Synergy, we offer a variety of Sciton modalities in laser skin therapy, from BroadBand Light (BBL) treatments to Sciton’s newest laser treatment, Moxi. Synergy Aestheticians Kristen and Bridget both perform laser services in addition to skin services, and agree that these treatments are a crucial component of a healthy skin regimen.

Our BBL Maintenance treatment is perfect for skin that is clear and doesn’t need pigment correction,” Kristen says. “Seasonal treatments make skin look younger, smoother, and healthier. Plus, it’s safe on almost all skin types and has very minimal downtime.

3636


Moxi by Sciton, the other favorite, is a great treatment to consider seasonally once you’ve reached your #skingoals and want to keep enjoying the results. Moxi is a minimally invasive laser treatment that can help stimulate cell turnover and help lift stubborn pigmentation.

If you feel like you have big pores or struggle with pore clarity, try the Moxi,” Kristen says. “I love how smooth my skin looks the following next week.

To Our Synergy Family! As this whirlwind year is coming to a close, I wanted to thank you for supporting us to positively serve others amidst all of the uncertainties of 2020. While your purchases directly supported our local business (for which I am very thankful), they also helped to foster connection during a time of isolation, bolster community engagement during this unprecedented time, and raise awareness and funding for important issues plaguing our community. This year has truly shown us that we can shine a bright light when we join forces for the better good. While we’ve missed connecting in-person, we’ve enjoyed reaching clients near and far on social media and seeing our #SynergySquad share our posts, refer friends, or shout out their favorite Synergy providers. In this time of uncertainty, this has meant the world to both our team and to me, personally. On behalf of the entire #TeamSynergy, I wish you joy and continued health in the New Year!
