It involves a series of gentle, repetitive with an accumulative result treatments, rather than one concentrated treatment that may really aggravate the skin, disrupt its natural barrier, leading to water loss and environmental toxins can enter the skin more easily. This means less redness, an overall healthier skin and less downtime.
Environ have a variety of peeling systems, using acidic creams and gels instead of using acid solutions. These peels preserve as much epidermis as possible while at the same time, getting the safest effective concentration of hydronium ions into the dermis.

You must avoid sun exposure and sun beds. Avoid exercise for the 24 hours after your peel and do not pick, scratch or peel your skin. Mineral Make up can be applied immediately you may experience mild redness or tingling following your peel. One to three days following your procedure, you will notice mild to moderate peeling of the skin that can be concealed with the consistent use of mineral makeup.
For optimum results, we recommend a course of 6 treatments, taken at intervals prescribed by your aesthetician.
