Environ Cool Face Peel – What is it?

New Treatment offered – Cool Face Peel.

What is it? The cool peel is a mild peel made of lactic acid. Our skins are made of lactic acid so it is the safest way to peel our skin.  The percentage of lactic acid in the professional peel is 5%.

Suitable for

  • All skin types
  • Particularly good for oily, acne or rosacea
  • Thickened sun damaged skin

Not suitable for – Hyper pigmentation should not be treated because when we peel our skin we make it more susceptible to uv penetration and consequently that can lead to more melanin being produced so the condition can get worse.

Benefits you can see

  • Remove excess dead skin cells without damaging or striping the skin
  • Thickens the epidermis of our skin
  • Soften and smooths wrinkles and fine lines
  • Improve skins radiance / natural moisture
  • Reduces and prevents breakouts
  • Will lighten superficial pigmentation
  • Reduces redness
  • Kills bacteria

Whats actually happening – Growth factors will stimulate the production of collagen and elastin to tighten the skin reducing lines, wrinkles and making the skin plumper. Cool peels result in the release of TGF (Transforming growth factor) which is responsible for scar less healing.

Preparation for the cool peel.

  • Patch test 48 hours before.

My skin gets dull and dry in winter, even though I moisturise. What can i do?

Skin will naturally get drier in the cold weather. Also being in the central heating will also dehydrate the skin. Absence of sunlight skin produces less oil resulting in a dull complexion and more visible dehydration lines. Using something like Environ Ionzyme Hydrating Serum regularly will help. To maximize the result I would first cleanse and tone with environ AVST cleanser and Toner then use the home Cosmetic roll kit. Roll the skin for 3-5 minutes creating little channels into the skin for deeper absorption. Apply the Hydration Serum and leave the skin for 5-10 mins before applying your daily vitamin cream.
