With so many options on the market for your home skin care, it is no surprise so many people are unsure of what they should be using and how these products can benefit their skin. Did you know there is a substantial difference between a cosmetic product and a cosmeceutical product?

What is a Cosmeceutical Product?

A cosmeceutical product contains active ingredients, meaning ingredients that have been clinically proven to penetrate deeply into the skin at a cellular level to create positive, visible biological changes to your skin. These products can be found in a medical skin clinic.

What is a Cosmetic Product?

A cosmetic product is found over the counter in pharmacies, department stores and/or supermarkets. They either contain no active ingredients (but may provide some hydration or plumping to the skin) OR they may contain a very low percentage of active ingredients that don’t have the ability to make the noticeable, long-lasting improvements to your skin.


Everyone would have heard of certain ingredients that are great for your skin; retinol, vitamin C, antioxidants, the list goes on.  This is why it is essential to have your skin professionally analysed with Dermal Therapists.  Jodie and Charlotte are Geelong Veins, Skin and Laser’s very own and very knowledgeable dermal therapists.  Jodie and/or Charlotte can create a personalised home skincare routine to suit any skin concern.

Here at Geelong Veins, Skin and Laser we stock SYNERGIE SKIN AND PRACTITIONER.  Synergie is an Australian made and owned cosmeceutical company who are cruelty-free, dedicated to improving the long-term health and vitality of your skin.  They are committed to a clean science with no harmful preservatives or ingredients contained in their products.

What Are Some Of The Essential Cosmeceutical Products?

  • Vitamin A –  this nighttime serum (also known as retinol) helps regulate all skin processes. It will help reduce sun damage, pigmentation, and fine lines. It will also help restore dermal thickness and the epidermal barrier as well as regulating oil levels which helps with acne control.


  • Vitamin B – helps to boost skin immunity, increase hydration, reduce hyperpigmentation, reduce inflammation, stimulate collagen and enhance blood flow.


  • Vitamin C – reduces the appearance of sun damage and pigmentation, promotes collagen formation and protects against free radical damage.


If you are coming to have a clinical skin treatment with us, we highly recommend you employ home skincare as well.  Home skin care contributes greatly to your results. Not only will you get better results from any clinical treatment when your skin has been strengthened with these active cosmeceutical ingredients, your clinical treatment results will last so much longer.

Whether you’re concerned with ageing, pigmentation, acne, dry/oily skin, redness/sensitivity, or just want a good daily routine, Synergie has an extensive range where there is something to suit everyone.

On August 29, 2018 at 6 pm, Geelong Veins Skin and Laser will be hosting a FREE Synergie Skin Care Night.  You’re invited to join us to learn more about the importance of cosmeceuticals, what products are best suited to your skin, how to become a VIP client AND exciting prize giveaways!
