Dr Des Fernandes, acknowledged by Insignia as one of the top ten Aesthetic, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons in the world, was the first medical professional to introduce vitamin A in effective doses in his first cosmetic skin care range . This range established Environ® as a leader in skin care, a position for which Environ is still renowned.
Environ Ionzyme DF Machine Technology | It’s increasingly recognised that the degree of success of even the best active skin care formulations is limited by the effectiveness of the delivery method into the skin. That’s why by harnessing technology that was previously used only in the medical world, skincare therapists are now achieving previously unheard of results in the salon with the right equipment.
Development work by plastic surgeon and Environ founder, Dr Des Fernandes resulted in the creation of a machine which enhances the penetration of topical ingredients through the skin’s naturally resistant waterproof barrier, resulting in striking improvements.
The Environ Ionzyme DF Machine is a patented system which uses a combination of low-frequency sound waves (sonophoresis) and a pulsed form of galvanic current (iontophoresis) to deliver key active ingredients (including high doses of vitamin A and C, antioxidants and hyaluronic acid) deep into the skin. The pulsed electrical current has been found to effect superior penetration compared with the conventional continuous current which has been used in beauty therapy for the past 100 years.
The system is designed for clients who are already using homecare products, but who want even more outstanding improvements to their skin – on the face and body. It is suitable for even the most delicate of complexions, as a highly effective skin nurturing facial, or as a course of intensive treatments for specific yet common concerns such as mature, sun-damaged, lined, photo-aged, pigmented or scarred skin and stretch marks. The treatments help to stimulate thickening of the skin, improve collagen and elastin levels, reduce hyper-pigmentation and increase hydration.
