The facials are uniquely prescribed to your own personal skin requirements. Each facial begins with a detailed consultation where we devise your own programme of salon based treatments and products for use at home.
Environ is suitable for treating a number of skin conditions but many users see notable improvement soon after starting their treatment. Some skin conditions take commitment and patience from both the client and therapist – this will all be discussed at your initial consultation.
Our Environ skincare treatments can help to address a wide range of concerns such as photo-ageing, uneven skin tones, fine lines, scarring and problem skin. For the most effective results courses of 6 or 12 treatments are recommended, a tailor- made regime will be created for you after a thorough consultation.
Environ Ionzyme DF Machine
This machine provides facial treatments which are at the very forefront of scientific skin care. This is one of the most effective treatments in the world today for enhancing the penetration of high doses of vitamins into the skin.
Specific Environ products used in these skincare treatments contain the optimum strengths of vitamin A and C plus additional growth factors. To enhance the penetration of these products through the skin providing better penetration of the active vitamins and essential factors into the skin. This technique is crucial because skin has a natural, waterproof barrier that hinders the penetrations of vitamins. The Ionzyme DF Machine manages to overcome this resistance with two tried and tested methods:
Iontophoresis – involves the use of an electrical current to facilitate greater penetration of vitamins into the skin. This may sound scary, but it is not.
Sonophoresis – involves the use of sound waves to transport vitamin molecules through the skin. The sound used is the same as the sound made by dolphins, which produces better penetration through the skin.
Iontophoresis is used for relatively large surface areas such as the face and neck, whereas Sonophoresis is used on limited areas such as the upper lip and the concentration of character lines around the eyes, on scar tissue and on pigmentation marks. Both methods can be combined, where necessary, for intensive treatments. It is also useful for reducing pore size, evening skin tone, tightening, lifting and brightening your skin, while providing an overall healthier appearance.
The skincare treatments are designed to stimulate maximum thickening of the skin, normalisation and improvement of collagen and elastin, better control of pigment production, restoration of normal blood flow and proper oxygenation of the skin.
