Microdermabrasion (£40) - Many will notice improvements in the texture and appearance of their skin immediately after the first treatment.
How it works
DERMA GENESIS® Microdermabrasion uses a highly controlled flow of fine, medical grade crystals to remove the dead, outermost layer of skin.
This skin exfoliation process reveals the new, living skin cells that are soft, smooth and receptive to nutrients.
Microdermabrasion is commonly used to treat and diminish:
• Fine Lines and Wrinkles
• Sun Damaged Skin
• Acne Prone Skin
• Blackheads and Whiteheads
• Superficial Age Spots
• Oily Skin
• Dry or Patchy Skin
The procedure is performed by using a hand piece that the operator passes over the skin. This evenly removes the stratum corneum, the outermost layer of skin, as pictured above.
At the same time the underlying epidermis is also stimulated by the abrasion and the vacuum. This promotes new collagen which thickens the dermis and improves resistance to the effects of ageing.
Before and after:
The microdermabrasion procedure takes approximately thirty minutes, depending upon the skin condition, the area to be treated, and the desired outcome.
Many will notice improvements in the texture and appearance of their skin immediately after the first treatment. The long-term benefits of multiple procedures can be remarkable.
At the forefront of scientific skin care, this treatment is possibly the most effective in the world today.
Environ Ionzyme® DF II Facials - The vitamins A and C contained in Environ treatments are essential for the maintenance of a healthy, youthful skin.
Our active vitamins work their best when they reach the desired depth of your skin. The Ionzyme® DF II Machine represents a cutting edge process in enhancing the penetration of vitamins into the skin.
The Ionzyme® DF II Machine employs the combination of two highly sophisticated scientific methods:
Involving the use of a specifically pulsed electrical current to facilitate greater penetration of water soluble vitamins and other active molecules into the skin.
Low Frequency Sonophoresis
Involving the use of sound waves to transport all molecules and large peptides through the skin.
Low Frequency Sonophoresis is up to 1000 times more effective than conventional ultrasound. Environ is the pioneer in both the use of Low Frequency Sonopheresis and its combination with Pulsed Iontophoresis within one treatment.
Concentrated, scientifically targeted products used with the The Ionzyme® DF II Machine can offer effective treatments for the following skin conditions:
•Thin, lax skin
•Uneven skin tone and texture
•Severe sun damage
•To reduce frown muscle activity
•Fine lines and wrinkles
•To increase hyaluronic acid levels in the skin
Treatments can be performed on most of the body’s larger skin surfaces, such as the legs, arms and neck, or focused on specific areas, such as the lower eye lid, the frown area, smile lines at the side of the eyes, and upper lip area. All our treatments have been designed to stimulate maximum thickening of the skin, increase Collagen and Elastin production and improve blood flow and proper oxygenation of the skin.
The Ionzyme® DF II Machine was designed to enhance the penetration of many different molecules, over and above vitamins. In other cases the focused enhancement of penetration of selected active molecules can relax frown muscles and smoothen fine wrinkles of people who do not use vitamin A and C, by boosting hyaluronic acid levels in the skin.
Your treatments should be scheduled once or twice per week for an optimal period of 24 treatments, with maintenance visits once a month thereafter. Your trained skincare therapist will assess your unique needs and carefully devise a treatment plan for you.

At Some Point in Our Lives, We All Get Outbreaks of Acne
There are many myths about the cause of acne. Some people think that the incidence of acne is higher if you eat foods like chocolate or French fries. Others think that the presence of acne is due to poor hygiene. Neither is true.
Acne is caused by the body’s increased production of the hormone androgen (produced by both men and women), which stimulates the sebaceous glands to produce more oil. The increased production of oil causes the pores to become blocked, so that the oil cannot come up to the skin surface. The acne itself is an infection caused by skin bacteria that feed on and break down this oil. As the bacteria multiply, waste products and sebacic acid are created, and the sebaceous gland becomes inflamed causing what is known as a blackhead, a whitehead or a pimple. But now with the clinically tested and safe Ellipse treatment help is at hand.
How does Ellipse treatment work?
The Ellipse operator guides the light from the flash-lamp to the treatment area. The unique Ellipse I2PL system carefully filters this light in two ways to ensure that only light with the correct characteristics (wavelengths) is allowed to reach your skin. The light that is allowed through is absorbed by haemoglobin, which is the red pigment in blood. The light from the flash-lamp heats up the haemoglobin in the fine blood vessels that supply the sebaceous glands. This causes a minor injury to the sebaceous glands and slows down the overproduction of oil that leads to acne.
How long does an Ellipse treatment take?
The glass prism within the Ellipse applicator that guides the light to the skin is 10mm by 48mm, so a large area can be targeted in one flash of light. It takes approximately 60 flashes to treat the full face. Including consultation and preparation, you should count on 20 minutes in the clinic. A typical course of therapy includes four treatments, three weeks apart.
Can I be treated?
If you have permanent acne you will benefit from a treatment. The best results are achieved on inflammatory acne – best known as those red, aching, raised pimples. It is important your skin is relatively pale at the time of the treatment, as too much light will be absorbed by a dark complexion.
Does it hurt?
Tolerance of pain is very individual from person to person. No anaesthetics are required, and many patients describe the discomfort as a warming sensation similar to the feeling one has after a day on the beach. The lighter the skin colour, the less pain.
Do I need to take special precautions before and after treatment?
The light used is completely safe, visible light, so no special precautions are necessary. Potentially harmful wavelengths are removed by the unique Ellipse Dual Mode Filtering system. The Ellipse acne treatment is a combination therapy. In the clinic you will be given a tube of adapalene cream or gel (in most countries branded Differin®) to apply once every evening in the acne-affected area. Adapalene works by reducing the inflammation caused by acne, and by reducing (normalising) the thickness of the skin in the treated area. You will learn more from the doctor who will prescribe adapalene.
Generally, no post-treatment care is immediately necessary, but people with sensitive skin may benefit from applying an ice pack to the face immediately after treatment or applying an ointment prescribed by the doctor.
What can I expect?
You may notice some general redness on the face following the treatment. If you have sun-damaged skin, some of the pigmented spots may turn darker and eventually disappear. Because the bacteria are difficult to eradicate completely, your doctor will probably recommend that you continue using adapalene cream for some months after the Ellipse acne treatment has ended. Should you suffer from a future acne outbreak, the treatment with Ellipse can be repeated. Although results vary from person to person, initial results from a recent clinical study show that 58% of acne lesions disappeared with the Ellipse treatment, compared to 33% improvement with topical cream alone. Please talk to your physician about what results you can expect.
How can I be sure Ellipse is safe and effective?
Clinical trials documenting Ellipse’s safety and effectiveness are carried out by leading doctors prior to the release of the product. The results of these tests are then published in respected, refereed medical journals. You are welcome to view these scientific papers on the Ellipse website at www.ellipse.org. The settings used for your treatment will be based on the settings recommended by the clinicians who carried out the clinical trials.
