We take a look at the latest innovative peel treatment from Environ®

Environ® has recently introduced its TCA (Trichloroacetic Acid) Cool Peel Technology – a revolutionary non-invasive approach to peeling that provides enhanced results. It improves visible signs of ageing, texture, blemish prone skin, oily skin, rosacea. It is especially designed for clients who wish to refine, revive, and brighten skin safely and effectively.

While traditional approaches to skin peeling are based on the destruction of skin cells, Environ’s Cool Peel Technology, works to support the natural processes of healthy skin. Dr Fernandes believes there is a better way to achieve smoother, tighter, healthier skin than stripping away vital layers.

“I wanted to preserve the stratum corneum. I didn’t want peels that kill the top layers of skin.  I just wanted to threaten the cells and they respond by releasing growth factors, to stimulate collagen production.”

It is claimed that standard peels can remove the “dead” layers of skin to expose the “healthy” layers leaving the skin smooth and hydrated. Doing this repeatedly can only lead to thin, dry, and damaged skin.

Before considering peels as a treatment for a client it is imperative, therapists first do a thorough consultation. Where appropriate peeling should be viewed as part of a client’s journey to healthy skin and should never been used as the only option.

Why Environ® TCA Cool Peels?

The Environ® TCA Cool Peel system uses low strength acids that function on the surface of the skin. They are far less aggressive than conventional peeling systems. In addition to low strength, the Ph is also kept low. These acids can safely be left on the skin for prolonged periods of time, where the acid will stress the keratinocyte cells to release various growth factors. These growth factors rejuvenate skin, promoting new collagen and elastin and creating a more youthful, thicker, healthier, and smoother skin.  

The TCA Cool Peel systems use either a cream or gel, which further slowdown the release of the acids. It is easy to see where the acid is being applied and can be layered for additional effects. This means that the therapist is empowered and has full control over the strength and effects of the peel, and it is virtually impossible to over treat skin.

The Environ® TCA Cool Peel can be used as part of an overall treatment plan incorporating the correct homecare. This holistic approach will lead to the most significant changes and ensure a healthy, strong beautiful skin for a lifetime.
