Environ Facial introduce the use of vitamin A into the formulation of skin care products heralded a new era the of sun damage skin. Although some cosmetic house were using very low doses of vitamin A in their skin care products in the 1980s, Dr Des Fernandes, a prominent Cape Town plastic surgeon, was the first person in the world to introduce vitamin A in a high effective doses. This range established Environ as a leader in skin care.
The Environ skin care range was first formulated as a result of Dr Fernanders’ when he attempted to treat the melanoma of two young, charismatic patients, who both died before they were twenty three years old. Such horrifying experience leaves an indelible scar on one’s life as a doctor. For this reason, he started to study the mechanism of skin cancer and the skin – thus Environ was born.
The cosmetic manufacturing company, Environ Skin Care (Pty) Ltd., was founded by Dr Fernandes in 1990 and he soon expanded its numbers of products into full skin care range. Environ skin care products are manufactured under strictly controlled laboratory conditions at the Environ factory in Cape Town, South Africa and are exported to more than thirty countries worldwide.
Dr Fernandes has specialised in the field of plastic surgery in which he gain respect of his peers.

Environ Facial use this machine provides facial treatments that are at the forefront of scientific skincare. The machine is the first to combine the use of active Sonophoresis and intensified Iontophoresis, and is therefore possibly the most advanced machine of its kind in the world.
Operated only by trained skincare therapists, the specific Environ® products used in these treatments contain the optimum strengths of vitamin A and C, plus additional growth factors, to make the skin more resilient, radiant and to help treat blemishes such as patchy pigmentation, scarring and pimples.
The Ionzyme® DF machine enhances the penetration of these products through the skin, a crucial step because skin has a natural, waterproof barrier that hinders the penetration of vitamins. It overcomes this resistance with two tried and tested methods:
IONTOPHORESIS: - an electrical current facilitates greater penetration of vitamins into the skin. It is used for larger surface areas such as the face and neck. With conventional iontophoresis, changes are very much slower, wheras with the Ionzyme® DF machine, the skin looks and feels younger within two or three treatments.
SONOPHORESIS: - involves the use of sound waves to transport vitamin molecules through the skin. The sound used is the same made by dolphins, which produces better penetration through the skin than conventional ultrasound. It is used on limited areas such as the upper lip and character lines around the eyes, on scar tissue and on pigmentation marks.
Both methods can be combined, where necessary, for intensive treatments.
Environ Facial offers the most advanced approach to restoring or maintaining healthy, firm, youthful looking skin, with a high-tech facial which bridges the gap between beauty therapy and modern medical science.
This facial treatment makes use of the very latest technological discoveries to temporarily overcome the natural barrier posed by the skin, to rival results which previously were only achievable with invasive procedures or skin-thinning techniques like laser and chemical peels.
Courses of 12 or 24 treatments are recommended to kick start the journey to a beautiful and more youthful skin. Environ’s Ionzyme Active Vitamin Facial is based on a machine that applies a combination of electrical pulses and special sound waves to increase the penetration of vital skin vitamins A, C, E and beta-carotene by up to 40 times compared with simply massaging creams in by hand. Our lifestyles and the environment deplete these vitamins in our skins and is the major cause of premature aging and poor skin condition. This breakthrough technique, using low-frequency sound, has recently been used in the medical world to transmit high levels of drugs through the skin.
The treatment is designed to stimulate maximum thickening of the skin, improve collagen and elastin levels which results in softened lines and scars, reduced pigmentation marks and increased hydration. Using this powerful skincare technology, the skin is firmer and finer-textured with effects noticeable after just one session. All you need to do is lie back and be pampered.
Cool skin peels are especially suitable for acne, photo-damaged, photo-aged and thickened/congested skin. A skin peel is also very effective as a general "rejuvenating" treatment as it stimulates collagen production, improve skin tone, to rejuvenate dry and rehydrate skin by removing the rough, dead cells from the skin surface to enable antioxidants and vitamins penetrate the skin so to maintain a healthy skin.
It is mandatory that all the clients pre-treat their skin for at least three weeks with Environ AVST1 vitamin cream (minimum dose). For regular users of AVCT creams there is no need to pre-treat.
The treatment is preferable during the cool/cold seasons and should not be carried out before holidays in the sun.
