ENVIRON FACIAL TREATMENTS

HYDRABOOST TREATMENT

The perfect antidote to dry, lacklustre skin, this intensive treatment deeply hydrates while plumping and firming the skin. Based on hyaluronic acid, which holds 1000 times its own weight in water, this treatment helps to reduce fine lines caused by dehydration and increases the plumpness of the dermis, resulting in moisturised, glowing skin.

ACTIVE VITAMIN TREATMENT

Packed with nourishing anti-ageing ingredients, the active vitamin treatment we provide will leave your skin looking radiant and dewy. The freshest, most active forms of vitamin A, C, and antioxidants are driven into the lower layers of the skin using sound-waves and small electrical pulses. This scientific approach stimulates collagen, softening facial lines and improving elasticity, hydration, and radiance. Suitable for all skin types and particularly effective against sun damage, pigmentation, premature aging, dryness, uneven tone, and scarring, this treatment provides measureable differences after just one session.

PRECISION TREATMENT

This time-effective treatment targets specific areas of concern using unique skin care techniques that work to ensure effective results. This skillfully provided treatment is perfect for busy clients.

PURIFYING TREATMENT

Designed to purify, micro-exfoliate, and rehydrate your skin, this treatment assists with the healing of acne, scarring, and deep skin congestion. The combination of scientifically advanced products and techniques helps to revive and refresh skin, leaving you feeling brand new.

COLLAGEN FACIAL TREATMENT

This peptide-packed facial helps to boost collagen, soften fine lines, and tighten lax skin, resulting in a more youthful appearance. Ideal for mature or photodamaged complexions, this treatment uses gentle sound-waves to drive a nutritional serum deep into the lower skin layers. Containing a unique combination of three peptide complexes, these ingredients synergise to lend skin a plumper, more radiant appearance.

WHY PEELING HAS BEEN GIVEN A BAD NAME?

by Dr Des Fernandez

Environ has been the lone voice in the wilderness of peeling systems. For nearly 20 years I have insisted that there are major problems with the standard peeling systems used around the world. I learned the hard way that peeling can be dangerous and that is why I modified my attitude to peeling. Because of my different approach to peeling I was invited in 1995 to the ISAPS seminar in New York to instruct doctors about serial light peeling, using Environ Cool Peeling System, which are far safer and at least equally effective.

People want instant gratification and one heavy peel. I say no-one wants to go through the heavy flaking and people are too busy. They need to get back to work.

The peeling system from Environ has been designed very carefully to be safe, effective and gratifying.

Environ is also s lone voice in saying that pigmentation problems should not be peeled with the standard method of peeling. Specialised methods of peeling are necessary and should be used in combination with topical vitamins. I think people will finally start listening to me: I have been saying it for nearly 20 years. You can be quite confident that with Environ system, you will never ever have any disasters.

CAN YOU TREAT PIGMENTATION
WITH THE ENVIRON COOL PEEL SYSTEM?

Pigmentation should never be treated by peeling because when we peel the skin, we make it more susceptible to penetration by UV light and consequently there is more stimulus to melanocytes to make melanin, or, worse still, greater chance of DNA damage in melanocytes.
