The main principle of Environ peels is based on the structure of the skin cells and to protect the skins’ natural barrier, so there is minimal damage associated with this peel. If the skin cells are treated aggressively, water loss and environmental toxins are more likely to enter the skin.
Environ peels at our Kirkland, Washington office, remove the excess outer layer of skin, but protect the quality of skin with a waterproofing barrier, which is where it gets the name “cool peel”. Environ peels are ideal for patients who want hydrated and refined skin, while repairing skin cells and encouraging cell exfoliation to achieve a fresh and youthful skin appearance.
Environ has a variety of peeling systems that use acidic creams and gels instead of acid solutions. These peels protect as much of the epidermis as possible, but at the same time, receiving the safest and most effective formula of hydronium ions into the dermis. Environ Cool Peels are designed to preserve the skin, while simultaneously stimulate fibroblasts in the dermis to increase collagen production, which leads to healthy skin appearance.
Environ Cool Peels are an ideal way to improve or eliminate the following skin issues:
- Acne that has not responded to prior treatments
- Rough skin by hydration
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Solar keratosis, known as age spots
During your treatment, you may feel a warm, tingling sensation with the Environ peel, however most patients experience no discomfort. After the peel, the skin may feel tighter and slightly warm. The treatment lasts approximately 60 minutes, but this depends on your consultation with Dr. Partington to determine what course of action is best for your skin desires. Patients may need a series of peels to treat a specific condition.
