Environ Beautiful Skin for a lifetime
Environ Skincare achieves outstanding results for people who are serious about skin! Formulated by Dr Des Fernandes, a prominent Cape Town plastic surgeon. Dr Fernandes was the first person in the world to introduce vitamin A into skincare products in high effective doses. This range established Environ as a leader in skincare.
Environ’s vision has always been to make the best skincare in the world, through a philosophy of well researched, scientific skincare. Environ products and treatments are effective, proven, cost-effective and inspired through teamwork to offer real results and a glowing healthy radiance.
The Ionzyme DF Machine is used in our Environ treatments. This machine enhances the penetration of products through the skin, a crucial step because the skin has a natural, waterproof barrier that resists the penetration of vitamins. It overcomes this resistance with two tried and tested methods, Iontophoresis (electrical pulses) and Sonophoresis (sound waves). Both methods can be combined, where necessary, for intensive treatments. The results from these treatments are truly amazing and Environ is acclaimed by international beauty editors, skincare therapists and dermatologists.
Environ Collagen Power Facial
This peptide-packed facial helps to boost collagen, soften fine lines and tighten lax skin, resulting in a more youthful appearance.
Using a unique serum containing 3 powerful anti-ageing peptides (Matrixyl 3000,Trylagen and Matrixyl Synthe 6),which have been clinically proven to help regenerate the skin and improve moisture levels, a course of treatments will assist in improving the skin softening fine lines, tightening slack skin and refining the appearance of scarring and uneven skin texture.
Using the DF Ionzyme machine, this facial is the only one in the world that can enhance the penetration of these peptides into the skin due to the action of low frequency sonophoresis.
Environ Cool Peel
This ground-breaking Cool Peel, which rejuvenates skin while caring for the epidermis is Unlike more aggressive peels which destroy important skin cells, this new protocol, developed by plastic surgeon and anti-ageing specialist Dr Des Fernandes, helps to stimulate healthy growth, with light, repetitive treatments.
A low concentration acid masque left on the skin for sufficient time has been shown to address lines, sun damage and problem skin effectively and comfortably. This achieves visibly smoother skin with minimal redness and no recovery time.The one hour Cool Peel salon treatment is recommended as a course of six, taken once weekly. The individually tailored treatment involves applying one or more layers of lactic acid cream masque (LACM2) which is left on the skin for 10 to 20 minutes. The treatment finishes with the application of a soothing, alginate masque through which a galvanic current is pulsed. This step aids the absorption of a vitamin A based gel which helps speed up the growth of epidermal cells, and leaves the skin feeling cool and looking refreshed.
