Environ TCA cool peels

Environ TCA cool peels

Environ TCA cool peels offer a gentler approach, providing superficial exfoliation that effectively reduces fine lines, improves sun-damaged skin, and addresses concerns such as rosacea, acne, and scarring. These peels are also beneficial for enhancing overall skin texture, all while minimising downtime. On the other hand, deep peels penetrate deeper layers of the skin, requiring longer recovery periods and carry higher risks.

Depending on your skin concerns, we can determine which TCA Cool Peel option would best suit your needs for achieving optimal results while ensuring your skin’s health and safety. It is essential to prepare the skin with Environ’s Vitamin A Moisturisers for a minimum of three weeks prior to peeling. This preparatory step strengthens and repairs the skin, reducing the likelihood of reactions and enhancing the results achieved during the peeling process.

Environ TCA Cool Peels FAQS

How many peels do I need?

Environ recommends a course of 6 to 12 treatments to achieve optimal results. After a course of peels, the skin appears more refined, revived and radiant with an overall improved appearance. Treatment helps improve the texture and appearance of oily, blemish-prone skin along. Treatments help to improve the visible signs of ageing and soften the texture of the skin.

Uneven Skin Tone (Pigmentation)

We recommend a comprehensive approach rather than relying solely on peeling. This may involve utilising the Electro-Sonic Ionzyme DF Machine in conjunction with a tailored home product regimen, incorporating home microneedling, Advanced Nutrition Programme Skincare Supplements, and incorporating light, repetitive peels as part of a holistic treatment plan. This multifaceted approach maximises effectiveness and ensures long-term improvements in skin tone and pigmentation.
