With their advanced facials and innovative home care regime, Environ are renowned as one of the world’s top professional skincare systems. Delivering a powerful cocktail of vitamins A, C and E to the skin using their Ionzyme DF II machine, the anti-ageing actives are delivered 4400% deeper into the skin than through topical application alone, ensuring the very best results and visible improvements after just one treatment.
The Environ Ionzyme DF 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 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 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.
In some cases a treatment plan is recommended for optimal results.
For an even more enhanced treatment we also offer Cosmetic Needling (Roll CIT) to dramatically increase the effectiveness of our skin care products, allowing improved penetration of vitamins into the active layers of the skin. “Micro-needles” puncture the horny layer of the epidermis, which is the main obstruction to penetration of active ingredients. This results in their passage to attain depths in the skin about 10,000 times more than by simply applying the products topically. The higher the levels of vitamin A and vitamin C that can penetrate into the lower layers of the epidermis, the more collagen can be made.
Treatment length: 1 hour and 30 mins (average).
