In the past decade, needling has become recognised as one of the most interesting developments in plastic surgery, and Dr Fernandes has been among its earliest proponents. From this, he initially developed the revolutionary Environ
Cosmetic Roll-CIT ‘micro-needles’ puncture the horny layer of the epidermis, allowing the active ingredients in the product to reach deeper into the skin far more effectively than by topical usage.
Recently Dr Fernandes designed the ENVIRON Focus-CIT, which is a smaller instrument made specifically for more focused treatments. Focus-CIT allows you to treat specific areas such as the forehead, eye and the upper lip.
Using the Cosmetic Roll-CIT and the Focus-CIT will assist in stimulating collagen to restore skin tightness in the early visible stages of ageing, help reduce the appearance of patch skin and surface blood vessels, smooth fine lines and soften scars. The treatment is not painful and can be used on very thin skin. The more frequent the treatment, the better the result.
