What is an ENVIRON Cool Peel®?
The principles of ENVIRON® peels are based on physiology of skin cells, these are to be protected and treated very well.
If the skin cell is aggressively peeled this disrupts the skins natural barrier and water will easily be lost and environmental toxins can enter the skin more easily. Hence ENVIRON® peels remove the excess horny layer of the skin and yet maintain the water-proofing barrier qualities of the skin.
ENVIRON® Peels are ideal for hydrating and refining; they repair cells and encourage cell exfoliation revealing fresh and youthful skin. Especially effective to treat scarring, rough textured, sun damage, acne and rosacea.
You must be on the home care range for a minimum of 3 weeks to prepare the skin before commencing treatment. However, in some cases of active acne, it is possible to have this treatment without using the products first.
We strongly recommend using ENVIRON® products afterwards for best results and a course of 6-8 treatments may be recommended.
