We use the brand Environ every day in our clinic, both in the treatments we do and the products we prescribe. Dr Des Fernandes, founder of Environ, is one of the world’s leading Plastic and reconstructive surgeons, and he both researched and pioneered “skin needling or advanced skin perfusion”, and invented the first skin roller. Heres at Remedies we use the Environ method, tools and products to achieve excellent results for our clients.
So what is it? Dr Fernandes explains that “If you prick the skin you also prick some blood vessels, and that causes a minor bleed. By bleeding you release platelets; the platelets assist in clotting the blood. They also contain growth factors which are designed to help injured skin heal rapidly. When we have pricked the skin we do not have an open wound, but these growth factors help to make skin thicker and more elastic and to develop more Collagen. That tightens up lax skin, smoothes out scarred skin and can even regenerate much more normal skin”.
This treatment uses a 1mm microneedling roller which improves light scars and wrinkles, skin laxity and stretch marks. It is suitable for all skin types (not active acne) . When used in conjunction with Vitamin A products prior and during treatments, the results are increased.
Against other treatments
Microneedling vs Laser resurfacing, chemical peels and microdermabrasion, while it is also ablative, (taking off the top layer of skin) you won’t be sun-sensitive after microneedling and the healing times for laser etc can be much longer. Microneedling will not damage your epidermis (no scars) and the puncture marks disappear within a few hours.
Microneedling vs Botox and Dermal Fillers
(Non-ablative) Botox is used to halt movement in your skin to prevent any wrinkles forming, and Dermal fillers help by inflating the skin to give volume or fill on wrinkles or scars. These injectables are slowly broken down by your system and wear off, so have to be topped up regularly. Microneedling is using your body’s own natural ability to regenerate, and will give much longer lasting, natural-looking results.
WHO IT WORKS FOR
Reported celebrity fans of microneedling are Jennifer Aniston, Kim Kardashian, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth Paltrow. Jennifer Aniston said of the treatment “ I do microneedling! I just learned about it a couple months ago from a facialist in New York. It allows the serums and whatever products you’re using to really sink in.”
WHAT TO EXPECT
You will be back to work next day! A topical anaesthetic is used, so sensation is minimal. You will have a sunburnt look immediately afterwards but it will fade by the next day. It is usually less expensive than laser resurfacing, it won’t make you sun-sensitive, and it can be effective on old scars, and even used on those with thinner skin.
A course of 3 or 6 treatments will give continued and longer lasting effects. Treatments can be performed monthly for maximum effect, or in-between your Vitamin A Facials. The “Home Use” 0.2mm cosmetic roller can be incorporated into these facials to enhance treatments.
You will need to have a needling consultation and patch test prior to your first full treatment.
