Environ Collagen Stimulation Therapy (CST) – A cutting edge treatment that harnesses your body’s natural powers of healing to tighten skin and achieve incredible results. It is especially effective for addressing the visible signs of ageing as well as sun damage, scarring, slackened skin, stretch marks, uneven skin tone and dilated blood vessels. CST can be done on all areas of the face and body and is suitable for all skin types.
During CST, a painless and revolutionary procedure, your medical 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 microscopic trauma to the skin. The body responds to this the same way it would to an injury and starts to repair the skin resulting in increased collagen and elastin production. After the treatment your skin is cleansed and nourishing vitamins A & C are applied. You will notice that you look flushed, as if you have sunburn, but this quickly fades within a day or two.
Applying Environ creams containing vitamins A and C before and after the treatment greatly enhances the results, because Collagen Stimulation Therapy sets up growth `factories’ in your skin. The vitamins can be pictured as workers in these factories and they will continue to benefit your skin for months after the treatment.
