What is Environ?
The Environ range of face and body products for homecare and professional use, has been developed by Dr Des Fernandes, a respected South African plastic surgeon. His concern about the depletion of the ozone layer and the increasing incidence of skin cancer led him to research the most effective ingredients both to protect healthy skin at an early age and to treat the increasing problems associated with sun-damaged skin.
The Environ range comprises product formulations, the ingredients of which are included on the basis of pharmaceutical and medical scientific evidence. Environ products are not tested on animals and contain no animal extracts. They are also free from artificial colorants and preservatives.
Who should use Environ?
The Environ philosophy is that by protection our skin from UV rays, pollution, bad diet and stress we can prevent premature ageing and maintain a healthy, beautiful skin for a lifetime.
Environ products are used both to prevent and to treat sun-damage, problem skin, pigmentation and scarring. The products are suitable for children, men and women. 80% of photodamage is done by the age of 18 so Environ is recommended for young people from the age of ten onwards to prevent this. It is also used as an effective pre- and post-operative treatment for cosmetic surgery.
Environ normalises skin, providing true skincare to re-balance every type from oily to dry at any age. The products, which are available in a variety of strengths, are available only from trained therapists following skin diagnosis to ensure the optimum results for each individual.
The AVST (advanced vitamin skin therapy) Range is exclusive to Environ users in the UK and replaces the Original Range. In addition to the active ingredients already in the Original range, (Vitamin A, C, E and Beta Carotene, AVST also contains powerful antioxidants and flavonoids ensuring a potent mix of protective, restorative and healing nutrients for the skin.
Environ users currently using the Original Range refer to below to make the transition to AVST.

The Ionzyme DF Machine
Quoted by Harpers and Queen as "One of the top 10 facial treatments in the U.K."
This is the latest and most effective treatment Environ offers.
The machine employs the combination of two highly sophisticated scientific methods:
Collagen Channelling for Natural Collagen Induction Therapy
Cosmetic Roll Cit and Focus Cit is a personal home use device and can also be brought with you during professional treatments to increase their effectiveness.
The Environ® Cosmetic Roll-Cit and Focus Cit is the latest revolutionary design from Environ® in skin care treatments.
It is a world first and will dramatically increase the effectiveness of skin care products, allowing improved penetration of vitamins into the active layers of the skin.
The principle of the Cosmetic Roll-Cit™ and Focus Cit is that the "micro-needles" puncture the horny layer of the epidermis, which is the main obstruction to penetration of active ingredients. Once this layer has been breached, the active ingredients in the skin care products can reach into the depths of the skin about 10,000 times more effectively than by simply applying the products topically. The higher the levels of vitamin A and vitamin C that can penetrate into the lower layers of the epidermis, the more collagen can be made. Therefore allowing natural collagenesis to occur.
Use of the Cosmetic Roll-Cit and Focus Cit will help restore skin tightness in the early stages of ageing, speed up the reduction of pigmented marks, thicken thin skin, smooth fine lines, soften scars and reduce dilated blood vessels. The advantages of skin needling is that is not painful, it does not damage the skin and it can be used on all areas of the skin or body, including very thin skin. It is however, not suitable for use on the following skin conditions: Active acne, Eczema, Rosacea, Psoriasis, severe solar keratosis and raised moles or warts.
The treatment time can range from 5-20 minutes depending on the speed, accuracy and density. It should be repeated at home between two to seven times a week. The more frequent the treatment, the better the result. Instrument can last you between 18 & 24 months depending on use.

How does it work?
The body responds to Collagen Stimulation Therapy in the same way it would react to an injury. The small amount of bleeding caused during treatment releases powerful growth factors, which are part of a natural healing response, resulting in increased collagen and elastin production.
What will happen during the treatment?
During this painless revolutionary procedure, your skincare professional will apply a topical anaesthetic and will use a small instrument containing tiny needles to create thousands of microscopic channels in the lower levels of your skin. This causes a minimal amount of bleeding that stops within minutes. After the treatment your skincare practitioner will cleanse your skin and apply nourishing vitamins A and C. You will notice that you look flushed, as if you have sunburn, but this will fade over the next couple of days.
- Dramatic improvements without the need for invasive surgery
- Completely natural, uses the skin’s own powers of rejuvenation
- Not painful – a topical anaesthetic is used
- Short healing time, in most cases clients are able to go to work the next day
- Does not damage the skin unlike some other procedures
- Can be done on all areas of the face and body
- Does NOT cause sun sensitivity
- Lasting effects – collagen continues to be laid down in the months following treatment.

What is Light Therapy?
The latest in aesthetic, medical and home treatment.This process has been optimized with the patented Photizo® light therapy device and numerous conditions are treatable at the push of a single button.
Photizo® is safe and easy to use by people of all ages.
Photizo® works off mains or battery power, and is fast becoming the modality of choice for healing wounds and numerous other conditions, in particular skin rejuvenation and repair.
Effects of Photizo®
1. Photizo® stimulates the production of ATP in the mitochondria
ATP is the major carrier of energy in the cells and is made by the cell’s power units, the mitochondria. Without ATP, all cellular functions cease, and an increase in ATP allows the cells to accept nutrients faster and to dispose of waste products by increasing the energy levels in the cell. ATP provides the chemical energy that drives the chemical reactions of the cell. ATP production is enhanced by light therapy, as light of a coherent, optimal wavelength energizes the cytochrome b structure, allowing it to donate electrons to the electron transport chain at a greater rate to increase ATP production.
2. Photizo® reverses cell death process and ensures cell repair
Following injury, a cell quickly approaches a point of no return, after which cell death is a certainty. Photizo® light therapy, if administered immediately, can reverse most such cell death processes by increasing ATP production.
3. Cellular regeneration
Once a cell has died, the body needs to make new cells to replace the compromised or damaged cells. Light therapy prevents the overproduction of scar tissue and ensures quicker (up to 250X) cellular regeneration. This is of major importance for accident victims to regain full functionality. This accelerated “replacement” effect is seen in all cell types. Once cells have been boosted with light therapy they can resume their normal functioning and make new blood vessels, nerve tissue, bone cells, cartilage, etc. Light therapy does not cause cellular overgrowth or cancer – cells are merely recharged to resume their normal functioning.
4. Clearing of inflammation and increased lymphatic activity
Local inflammation, although necessary, chokes a cell. Photizo® lessens inflammation and ischemia, helping the cell to take up nutrients and oxygen from surrounding tissue and blood vessels. Light therapy relieves ischemia and stops cell "choking". Edema has two components i.e. a liquid part, which can be evacuated by the blood system and a proteinaceous component which is comprised of proteins which have to be evacuated by the lymphatic system. Research has shown that the lymph vessel diameter and the flow of the lymphatic system can be doubled with the use of light therapy. The venous and arterial diameters can also be increased. This means that both components of edema can be evacuated faster to reduce swelling.
5. Increased immune system activity
Near-infrared light has been shown to increase immune system functioning. The exact mechanism by which this occurs has not been eluciated, but several studies have shown a systemic effect in subjects on whom light therapy was used. This means that local treatment of a wound with Photizo® has a general immune enhancing effect.
6. Photizo® increases blood supply
Increases blood supply to areas by stimulating the formation of new capillaries and blood vessels to replace damaged ones. This speeds up the healing process by providing more oxygen and nutrients needed for healing to the damaged cells. It also accelerates waste and debris removal form the site of injury. Light therapy has a vasodilatory effect.
7. Systemic effect and reduced excitability of nervous tissue
Photizo® assists in reducing the excitability of nerve tissue, thereby relieving pain. There is also a sharp increase in endorphins and serotonin, providing a further systemic pain-relieving and calming effect. This is of importance in acute and chronic pain relief.
8. Photizo® regulates collagen production
Collagen is the most essential protein building block used to repair damaged tissues, and to replace old tissues. By increasing and regulating collagen production less scar tissue is formed. Photizo® does not result in an overproduction of collagen – rather, it helps the cell produce optimal levels necessary for healing.
