Preparing your skin for the Environ Cool Peel treatment

December 15th, 2014

The Environ Cool Peel treatment requires that you will need to prepare your skin with with Environ AVST or CQ cream for around three weeks prior to the treatment. This will make the procedure safer and help you to gain the full benefits for your skin.

The main aim of applying the cream every day is to make the skin thicker and healthier.  Thus the peeling treatment won’t make the skin thinner, but will help to rejuvenate and give you compact and smoother skin after the treatment. 

Why does your skin need to be prepared with AVST or CQ cream?

These creams contain Vitamins A and C, which help to make the skin healthy and thick. This is vital for the Cool Peel as your skin needs to be strong and prepared for the treatment to work to its fullest effect!

Why are Vitamins A and C important?

Vitamin A has many benefits, but the most important benefit to mention here is that it helps repair the horny layer of the skin where new skin cells are generated. As a result, the skin produces healthier skin cells which thickens and strengthens the epidermis (the outermost layer of the skin) that otherwise would become thinner, feel dry and sluggish and show fine lines due to aging. In addition, since Vitamin A has the effect of increasing the skin metabolism, it will contribute to the regeneration of new skin. Thus, the horny layer of the skin becomes brand-new, resulting in the skin protection improving and increased moisture levels, keeping the skin compact and soft. In addition, Vitamin A helps to normalise the function of the sebaceous glands , and is also good for those who are bothered by acne .

In the same way, Vitamin C will also bring you many benefits, the most well-known of which are its anti-oxidant property for anti-aging. In addition, Vitamin C has properties to lighten unwanted pigmentation and stimulate the production of collagen, which helps to firm and beautify the skin.
