Advanced Skin Nutrition Programme
“Beautiful Skin for a lifetime….”
Following my own health challenges including the removal of a malignant melanoma and subsequent less invasive skin cancers, I am passionate about extending the knowledge I’ve gained on my journey to health and wellness, sharing insights from expert Harley Street skin specialists coupled with nutrition advice to help slow down and reverse the signs of ageing from the inside-out.
I’ve experienced first-hand the benefits of using Environ products and advocate their brands based on their sound, scientific basis and the simple fact that they achieve incredible, proven results. Environ don’t believe in quick fixes and their products work with the physiology of the skin to achieve maximum long term benefits.
You will always be offered a full consultation prior to your facial treatment to tailor an advanced nutritional plan just for you and your skin.
Why approach skincare from the inside-out?
Healthy skin starts from the inside and unfortunately no amount of creams and potions can correct imbalances within the body.
I use a multi-level approach looking at targeting cells from the inside, providing the nourishment they need, while protecting the outside in order to get you the long-term results you are looking for.
I work with the internationally recognised professional skin care brand Environ, acclaimed by international skincare therapists, dermatologists, beauty editors, top film stars and super models alike.
What happens during the ageing process?
The production of new skin cells declines with age. Melanocytes are prominent in the dermis (middle layer of the skin) and responsible for the production of melanin (the pigment that gives colour to the skin, protecting the skin from ultraviolet light damage). These cells decrease in density from 10 -20% per decade which is why when we get older, exposure to the sun can cause us to go blotchy.
Our collagen and elastin production also decreases as we age. Dermal collagen decreases around 1% year on year from the age of 20 along with elastin fibres which help to give the skin its tightness.
Signs & Symptoms of Ageing:
- Age spots
- Dull looking skin
- Sun damage, blotches
- Loss of elasticity
- Rough areas or patches of skin (keratosis)
- An increase in the amount of freckles
The History of Environ
Formulated by Dr Des Fernandes, a world-renowned plastic surgeon, he was particularly affected by two teenagers with skin cancer (melanoma), both of whom subsequently died. He became committed to researching the most effective ingredients to maintain healthy skin from an early age, and to treat sun-damaged and problem skin. As a result of his extensive research, he developed a range of skincare products containing a unique combination of active ingredients vitamins A, C and E along with powerful antioxidants such as rooibos tea, honey bush and specially selected peptides to protect and nourish the skin while promoting collagen production.
In addition, Dr Fernandes also developed an innovative treatment machine THE ENVIRON® IONZYME® DF MACHINE combining iontophoresis (galvanic current) and sonophoresis (sound waves) to enhance the penetration of anti-ageing ingredients, a crucial step because skin has a natural, waterproof barrier that hinders the penetration of vitamins.
The Environ brands work in harmony with each other and offer a holistic approach to beauty and skincare treatment.
- Assists in nourishing and conditioning the skin
- Gives the skin a healthy and radiant glow
- Assists in improving the appearance of fine lines, uneven skin tone and the appearance of sun-damaged skin
- Rejuvenates the skin by replenishing depleted vitamin A, quenching free radicals (with vitamins C, E, beta-carotene), which help neutralise the effects of UV radiation, pollution, smoking and stress
Environ – Advanced Skin Nutrition Packages
Advanced Active Vitamin Treatment
Packed with nourishing, anti-ageing ingredients, the Active Vitamin Treatment will leave your skin looking radiant and dewy. The freshest, most active forms of vitamin A, C and Anti-Oxidants are driven deep into the lower layers of the skin using soundwaves and small electrical pulses.
This scientific approach stimulates collagen to soften lines and improve elasticity, increase hydration and boost radiance.
The Active Vitamin Treatment is suitable for all skin types and is particularly effective at addressing sun-damage, pigmentation, premature ageing, dryness, uneven skin tone and scarring with measurable differences after one treatment.
This highly effective treatment uses a special penta-peptide serum to target frown lines and achieve dramatic results.
The unique combination of active ingredients is driven deep into the skin to soften lines and reduce muscle tension in the forehead helping to prevent new lines forming.
This treatment targets the same chemical complexes as injectables without the associated risks.
The perfect antidote to dry, lac-lustre skin. This intensive treatment deeply hydrates while plumping and firming the skin.
Based on Hyaluronic Acid, which holds 1000 times its own weight in water, it helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles caused by dehydration and increases the plumpness of the dermis, resulting in moisturised, glowing skin.
Anti-ageing serums and Hyaluronic Acid are pulsed into the skin using ultra-sound and micro-current.
This time effective treatment targets specific areas of concern e.g. eyes, using unique skin care techniques that ensure effective results.
Perfect when time is limited.
Manual Environ Hydrating Facials
We are all unique and some skin types and medical conditions may prevent the use of electrical current stimulation as produced by the Ionzyme machine.
Manual facials are also highly beneficial for the skin and can be performed using the Environ specialist skin care range.
An extremely relaxing experience!
The Natural Face Lift
Natural Face Lift, also known as Facial Rejuvenation or Natural Lift Facial Massage, uses a blend of techniques drawn from both Japanese Face Massage, Indian Face Massage, Acupressure and Facial Reflexology without the need for surgery. It involves a sequence of massage techniques which together act as a natural facelift treating the surface and also deep facial tissues with highly refined, gentle hand and finger manipulation.
Natural Face Lift also works with the facial meridians and reflexology points, helping to heal and balance the whole energetic system, improving overall health.
The combination of ageing, lifestyle and environmental stressors means that many people carry facial tension, often without even knowing. This can build up in the muscles causing visible signs such as puffiness, lines and wrinkles. Natural Facelift releases stress and trauma which may be locked deeply in the muscles of the face, neck and head helping to deeply relax the face and body.
