Environ Facial Treatment 13.04.2019 Newcastle Hair and Beauty Clinic
Today we have been invited to exclusively review a new revolutionary treatment at The Newcastle Hair and Beauty Clinic, located in the heart of Northumberland street.
The treatment is called the Environ Facial
Environ is the brainchild of Dr. Des Fernandes, a top cosmetic surgeon who has a passion for skin.
Since the 1980’s, Dr. Des Fernandes, Environ Founder, and Scientific Director has been working on the innovative skin care technic to get to the root of skin problems such as acne, psoriasis and even skin cancer.
Dr. Des believes that no one should have uncontrolled skin problems and that the magic of great skin is down to keeping the vitamin A levels high in the skin, focussing deep Dermis treatments to get to the skins interior.
As I arrive at The Newcastle Hair and Beauty Clinic, I am greeted by my therapist Angie.
Angie is one of the specially trained Environ therapists offering the Environ treatments at The Newcastle Hair and Beauty Clinic. Angie herself is on the treatment plan and can’t believe the results she has seen on her own skin. We sit and go through the consultation which includes face mapping the areas of concern and any questions I have about the treatment.
So, what is An Environ facial?
Essentially, it’s an intense vitamin A treatment with a cool, non-invasive peel. The Environ brand believe that the older acid peel treatments are far too aggressive – stripping away vital layers of the epidermis (top layer of skin), instead, Environ offers a lower concentration of lactic acid over light, repetitive treatments. This creating a gentler way to the healthy, radiant glow. It also ensures less redness. The treatment is approximately 107 minutes and recommended as a course of six courses.
The Treatment Process.
After a quick cleanse the treatment starts. Angie talks me through the exfoliation in which the therapist uses their hands in motions to encourage blood flow to the face. I thoroughly enjoyed this part. Then the continuing of the vitamin treatments are applied, then rolled off with warm mitts and repeated. Angie then starts to prepare the DF machine, which is like a mobile pen with a disk-like tip that works over the face with the treatment. The DF machine promotes the deeper penetration of the vitamins into the skin. This is completely painless, you can hear a slight ring but you adjust straight away, especially with the calming music in the background. Angie uses the DF machine to work on particular areas of my face such as my chin and cheeks where I am prone to breakouts. After this, the best part comes! Angie mixes a pot of pure goodness which sets into a thick paste which is smeared on the face, I chose to have my mouth and nostrils open as my nose was slightly blocked! The mixture is really cooling over the face, it was early morning so this felt incredible on my eyes.
The mask then forms a rubbery type mask, which has crocodile clips attached; these are hooked up to the machine to promote the deep penetration through galvanized pulses. This does not hurt a bit and it really soothing with the temperature. You can see a few flashes to start with but it tends to go away once you get used to it. Angie also helps by giving me a soothing arm massage while the mask is left to plasticize for around twenty minutes.
The best part is to come now, the mask is ready to come off. This is so satisfying! The treatment is then finished with a vita peptide eye cream and the Environ Rad SPF 15 – which I am definitely going to invest in. The product had the texture of a primer but adds extra UV protection.
Angie said immediately she could see a glow and she wasn’t wrong! My eyes when tired tend to sink, they now seem incredibly plum, pores in my cheeks have definitely reduced and my skin feels gorgeous. So much so I had the confidence to bare my face around Eldon Square for some shopping after!
Later that evening, I added a little makeup and my face looked really glowing.
This treatment is fantastic for someone who shies away from a bare face. Not only does the treatment protect you from sun damage and free radicals it promotes a healthy interior. It is a treatment that is forward thinking, with a great therapist such as the ones at Newcastle Hair and Beauty Clinic, you can trust you are in great hands!
