There are numerous ways to hide or lessen the effects of aging on our skin; Hydration inside and out is probably number one, staying out of the sun or at least protecting your skin from dangerous rays, eating right and sleeping well and of course not smoking. In addition there is always surgery, invasive treatments, needles and more.
Today there is clinical proof that by applying key active ingredients on your skin, wrinkles diminish and you can see instant results.
Synoia Technologies is constantly researching new methods to combine the usage of Phototherapy, Micro- Current, BlueV, and magnetic pulse technologies with active ingredients to do just that, get rid of those wrinkles and induce skin rejuvenation.
Synoia recently added to its line of WISHPro capsules a new capsule, the BTX Infusion. This capsule combines Acetyl Hexapeptide-8, Dunaliella Salina (Dead Sea) Algae, Vitamin A and Vitamin E. Acetyl Hexapeptide-8 is non-toxic, non-irritant ingredient that stimulates the facial muscles and relaxes facial tension, which is the source of those wrinkles. Acetyl Hexapeptide-8 actually mimics the effects of BOTOX without having to get shots. Dunaliella Salina is a green algae from the Dead Sea known for its antioxidant activity, Vitamin A helps keep your skin moist and is essential for cell division and rejuvenation and Vitamin E the queen of antioxidants.
The WISHPro Anti Aging technology head uses 500 μA of Micro-Current energy, which treats the skin on various levels; it teaches your skin muscles to contract and work on rebuilding cells, together with the new BTX capsule your skin will be looking and feeling younger in no time.

Working hard all day? Want to party all night? Not the best idea for your skin. Studies show that a good night’s sleep will make your skin look younger and fresher. Good sleep, good skin!
Did you know that while you are sleeping, your body is working hard? During night sleep hours is when repair and the rejuvenating process takes place in your body.
HGH (Human Growth Hormone) is responsible for cell growth and cell rejuvenation. Studies have noted that HGH is released more while you sleep, than during your waking hours. While you are sleeping, your human machine is trying to correct the damage to your skin from the sun, stress, food, and the environment. The better you sleep the better your cell regeneration is, the better your skin is.
Yale dermatologist Nicholas Perricone, MD, says that when you don’t get enough sleep, the body produces excess cortisol, a hormone that breaks down skin cells. Get enough rest, Perricone says, and you’ll produce more HGH (human growth hormone), which helps skin remain thick, more “elastic,” and less likely to wrinkle. WebMD
Melatonin is a hormone produced by the pineal gland. It’s part of our amazing machine that regulates our body’s sleep-wake cycle. Melatonin is produced during the evening and night, it likes darkness! In addition to it helping us sleep, Melatonin is a very strong antioxidant and helps to repair UV damaged skin cells.
I have always wondered why Sleeping Beauty had such beautiful skin!
Now that you know what you have to do, how do, you do it?
Sleep Better Tips:
- Organize your day so that you will have between 7-9 hours of sleep on an average.
- Don’t eat heavy at night. Stay away from carbs at night – it takes a long time for them to break down and you don’t need a burst of energy at 11:00pm
- Avoid caffeine from afternoon onwards.
- Prepare your bedroom for sleeping! Turn off the TV, the radio and keep your phone far from your bed.
- Have a glass of warm milk. It’s not a myth; there is clinical research that shows its effectiveness as a sleep aid (due to tryptophan in milk). It also just has a very natural soothing effect, especially if you drink it slowly.
- Keep your bedroom dark and uncluttered.
- Before you go to sleep clean your skin and then don’t forget to nourish it with a rich moisturizer.
Enjoy your sleep and wake up feeling beautiful. What are your bedtime rituals for waking up refreshed and wrinkle free?

The cosmetic and beauty industry has been growing at the speed of light over the last 4 decades. Once, there were only a few major brands sharing the market, today there are hundreds of thousands. New ideas, new formulations, and new technologies, guarantee for interesting new products.
While new products are being discovered, it is a combination of many factors that bring advanced products to market. Today companies are looking deeper into human biology, electronic devices, and technological advances in production, manufacturing environmentally friendly products and packaging and cleaner production facilities.
Amid today’s advancements in medical procedures, a person can rebuild the look of their face surgically taking off years; but at what price? There are medical risks (even advanced medicine has risks) and the procedures are still very expensive and not for everyone.
Research into anti aging is probably one of the hottest discussions in both cosmetic, and technology laboratories. While NASA was doing research using Light Emitting Diode (LED) Technology on plant growth, they realized that the LED’s could help heal wounded skin. Because the original findings came out of NASA, the FDA was quick on giving it clearance. Researchers took it a step further and studies proved that LED Therapy stimulates the skins natural production of elastin and collagen. More elastin and collagen in your skin, the less wrinkles and loss of tone you will have.
Natural ingredients such as Jojoba and Shea Butter have been around for centuries, however the combination of basic ingredients with new technologies for application is shaking up the cosmetic industry and taking on the hi-tech world. Just a few years ago aestheticians’ treatment rooms were filled with heavy clunky “machinery” were as today with the world of electronics getting “smaller”, professionals can offer the same and better results from the newer, smarter, smaller devices.
Synoia Technologies is a world leader in combining tech and beauty. The technologically advanced WISHpro System is both comfortable for the professional to use and the client to receive treatment with. It is the first cordless device of its kind. The system has a wide range of protocols from anti-aging, rejuvenation, and peeling using the various technology heads including LED Therapy and micro current together with the cosmetic capsules. The smart system has been built so that future technology heads and new capsules will be able adaptable to the device.

October is International Breast Cancer Awareness Month. It is when everyone gets on board to increase awareness and to raise funds for research, preventative care and a cure.
You probably have signed up to run, walk or swim in an event, set up a giveback campaign at your business or donated funds at your local salon or spa. We need a cure. With 1 out of 8, women are diagnosed with breast cancer.
There are many organizations that you can reach out to and help with their efforts to find a cure. Here is a list of organizations that support NBCAM in the USA. If you are looking to host a Fundraiser in your business, you can get some ideas from the National Brest Cancer Organization.
Everything is Pink and Pink is beautiful! There are pink scarves, T-shirts, bags that you can buy as a donation to Breast Cancer Organizations. We have seen some spas and salons actually going pink! Employees wearing pink, pink flowers at the reception and don’t forget to put a donation box on your front desk. Alternatively, do a give back, match your customer’s donations, or give a percentage of your income to your local Breast Cancer Organization. Your customers will know and appreciate that you care.
Give A Day
Many breast cancer patients suffer from dry and irritated skin during and after radiation treatments. A way to give back is to offer treatments to women in need. Call your local organization and ask if they can help give you names.
For some people after radiation treatments Calendula has soothed and helped heal radiation dermatitis. Calendula oil has antiseptic, anti fungal and anti-inflammatory properties. The WISHPro Calming Milk Treatment Capsule together with BlueV technology (Blue LED) might be the perfect facial, neck and shoulder treatment these special women need and would appreciate. Of course, they should always ask their doctor first.
History is full of descriptions of beautiful women. Poetic descriptions of their body shape over the course of time have changed from being a mirror image of the ancient Egyptian and Greek gods to the plump well-rounded “fertile” look of the middle ages, cinched waists, flat chests and bell shaped bottoms, to the tight corsets with bustles and overflowing cleavage, to the mannish look of the 1920’s and the athletic healthy body of the 21st century. The only feature that has not gone through a descriptive change is the woman’s skin. Throughout history, women have been described by their clear, fresh, glowing and soft as silk skin regardless of their geographical placement or skin color.
How Did They Achieve Skin Perfection?
Ancient text is full of original pharmacological prescriptions for cosmetics and skin care. The use of oils, balms, honey, salt and Shea butter has been documented since the times of the Egyptians.
Originating in West Africa, Shea butter is extracted from the nut of the karate tree. It quickly became popular and was imported with other spices and oils throughout the Middle East. Regular usage of Shea butter protected the skin against the climate, prevented wrinkles and soothed irritated and dry skin.
The bioactive ingredients in Shea butter include antioxidants, Vitamins A, E and F, and anti-inflammatory. Using Shea butter on your skin helps to restore elasticity and rejuvenates damaged cells.
Treatment With The Right Combinations
Today with the right combination of natural ingredients and new technologies, your skin can be cared for and treated so that it will look just like Cleopatra and ancient beauties. Synoia Technologies developed a protocol just for you. Using Red LED therapy together with the WISHpro rejuvenation capsule, you will see results after just one treatment (I know I have done it!). The Rejuvenation Serum Capsule with Shea Oil is high in vitamins A, E, and F providing deep nourishment for smooth skin.
What Is Jojoba?
The Jojoba plant grows in the dry desert areas of the United States and Mexico. During the past decade, the Jojoba plant has been introduced to other dry arid countries for commercial growth. Jojoba is a shrub, growing to an average size of approximately 5 feet high and 5 feet wide. The seeds of the Jojoba plant contain 50% oil that, in fact, is not really an oil but rather a wax. This wax was used by the Native Indians to treat sores, infections, and as a lubricant since the early 1700’s. Jojoba when refined has no odor or color.
The chemical makeup of Jojoba is very similar to human sebum, which is the oil that your body manufactures to naturally moisturize your skin. In recent years Jojoba has been tested on irritated skin; the results show that Jojoba oil may slow down or even prevent future skin irritations.
In addition, Jojoba has been positively tested for reducing wrinkles and fine lines. The ultimate natural anti-aging remedy. Since the research findings have gone public, Jojoba-based products have popped up everywhere. The Synoia Anti-Aging Treatment capsule is 100% Jojoba. That is the secret – 100%.
Micro-current therapy uses low-level safe electrical currents that mimic the body’s own electrical system. What does your personal electric company do in your body? It helps with blood stimulation, muscle growth and movement, tissue growth and tone. Continuous treatments using micro-current technology give you long lasting results, or as it is called in the industry the non-surgical facelift.
As you age, your skin muscles are not as toned as they were when you were younger. Micro-current technology re-programs and stimulates your muscles, circulates the blood in your skin, and it helps to regenerate collagen.
The Winning Combination
Jojoba oil together with the WISHpro micro-current technology head, firms and lifts your skin while making sure your skin is hydrated. You will feel and see instant results.
Why does The Gap (and Old Navy and Banana Republic too) greet customers entering one of their shops? Greeters are there to welcome customers, make eye contact with them, smile and offer assistance.
When a customer is greeted at the entrance to the establishment and eye contact is made together with a smile, the customer senses that they have been noticed and that they have entered a friendly environment. If the customer is in a bad mood or just everyday stress is written all over their face a greeter can change that by just smiling and saying quietly “Hello”.
This goes without saying for salons, spas and even single practitioner establishments too. You must greet your clients.
Front Desk Greeting
Your front desk is the first thing that most customers see and come into contact with. It is your physical business card. Therefore, step back and look at what your clients see when they enter your establishment.
- Clean clear space
- No food or drink (maybe a bottle of water)
- No money on the desk
- Computer screen clean
- Business cards
- Clean special holders
- Nicely displayed products for sale
Who Staffs Your Front Desk
Front desk employees should be customer service professionals. People who love people. Front desk staff should always be well put together, aesthetic, manicured and pedicured. Even more important, they must know where everyone is and who is doing what at all times. This is the most important position to be filled in your business. The person sitting behind the desk must know how to greet your clients, know their names, know what they have booked, who will be servicing them, how long of a wait they have, how they like their coffee or beverage and where to escort them on the way to their appointment. When the client is finished, the front desk staff should know the right questions to ask and how to book the clients next appointment.
Front Desk Dos and Don’ts:
- Don’t get too personal with the clients (your personal stuff is out-of-bounds)
- No eating or chewing gum when on the phone or in person
- Never talk about one client with another
- Always be polite – please, thank you, you’re welcome, are not difficult to use!
Your front desk operator has to be an orchestra conductor. They should have an understanding of all the “instruments” in the establishment. Does your front desk operator know how to work the system?
One of the ongoing topics in our blog will be all about customer service and care. When it comes down to it, there is nothing, but nothing more important than customer service. Let’s face it, there are great aestheticians, spas and salons out there who know their stuff. They know how to deal with anybody and everybody’s needs. Therefore, if your client is not happy about the way you treated them – they will be out your door and in through somebody else’s. They’re not coming back. We want to help you, make sure that your customers stay with you. Actually, we want to help you turn your customers into your very own brand advocates.
What Is A Brand Advocate?
According to Webopedia, “a brand advocate is a person, or customer who talks favorably about a brand or product, and then passes on positive word-of-mouth (WOM) messages about the brand to other people.”
How to create a strong crew of brand advocates?
- First, you must offer a solution to your customers. Every business must answer their customers pain or problems, if they don’t or can’t you don’t have a customer.
- Superb customer service and care.
- Ask them to share their experiences.
With and without Social Media
Most of your clients have one or more social media network account, probably most are on Facebook, some might be on Twitter, Pinterest, and LinkedIn or write a blog. Are you there too? It will make it much easier to let them do their job as brand advocates if you have a web and social network presence that they can link to.
Who is a typical active brand advocate?
They are your customers.
- They are social. They like to use social networks such as Facebook and Twitter
- They want to be considered experts
- They want to help others. They love to share information with people that they don’t know
- Some of them have a blog
- They like to discuss personal care products
- They like to discuss child care and support
- Brand advocates use “recommending” as a form of relaxing!
- Love sharing great experiences
You want them on your team. What is their motivation? Again, we go back to great service and a fabulous experience. According to eMarketers, brand advocates are motivated by one of two things:
- Good experiences with a product or service
- A desire to help others
It is all about a centuries’ old marketing method – word of mouth. People like to talk over lunch, coffee with friends, on the phone, or on social networks. People love to talk about good and bad things. Give them what to talk about, make sure they walk out of your establishment with a smile on their face.
How many times have you heard, “Anti aging treatments are for those over 40”. Wrong. Anti Aging starts today, no matter how old, or young you are.
My dental hygiene regiment is very strict, yours should be too. I brush 2-3 times a day, floss, I don’t exaggerate on sweets, I have my teeth cleaned regularly and have a checkup at least once a year. There is a direct correlation between healthy teeth and a longer life span. Do you take care of your skin in the same way? Do you make sure that your skin is healthy and that it looks young even though you are getting older?
Anti Aging Regiment Starts Now!
Our blog posts will be covering “Anti Aging – A Lifestyle” in depth; from nutrition to exercise, from skin care to “state of mind”. Following simple guidelines will help you remain young inside and out.
Your body and that includes your skin is the most amazing machine created. It has the ability to heal and repair itself, but it needs assistance from you. Let’s start with hydration. Your body needs liquids. Water lubricates your body, it helps to maintain a normal body temperature, flushes out toxins, and helps rebuild new cells.
According to the IOM daily recommendations for water intake are for women 91 ounces (2.7 Liters) day and for men 125 ounces (3.7 liters) a day. Your liquid intake can come from a variety of sources, including water, juice, vegetables, fruit etc.
Check out the 7 Wonders of Water
Drinking water, and making sure that your body is hydrated will help control acne, dry skin, and skin irritations. However, with all the environmental factors such as the sun, extreme weather, air pollution, medications, alcohol, smoking and more, your skin need’s extra care.
