Needing Needling

This week I was lucky enough to meet one of my skin heroes, Dr Des Fernandes, plastic surgeon and founder of Environ. 

I won’t bore you with all his accomplishments, however at almost 73 years of age he is walking proof that we can age without the face showing it. 

He joked that 2 fortune tellers have told him that he is to live to the ripe old age of 120 years of age and if that’s true, he wants to look in the mirror and not be depressed with the face that stares back at him. 

Skin needling is a proven and well documented program which was completely pioneered by the Dr himself who has constantly improved the procedure over the years constantly treating himself and using his patients to push new therorys to get better and better results, he tells me his had over 60 session to date. 

Countless patients of his keep turning back the clock, regenerating the skin back to full health. 

This program has helped me to reverse my acne scarring and red vascular skin AND it keeps looking better and better. 

This is something I’ve also found success with for many of my clients over the years, however today, with new discoveries and clinical research, I am seeing the best results of my career. 

Here’s how Dr Des explains needling and its role in non-invasive treatment:

“Medical clinicians are used to being consulted by patients who want to restore their youthful appearance. While structural changes to the face and body may be achieved with surgery (e.g. face lifts, etc.), the impression of youth also relies heavily on young-looking skin. It is desirable to have thicker and tighter skin in order to properly fulfill the desire for a youthful look. 

Skin needling offers an anti-ageing effect to improve the appearance of all skin. Experience has shown that needling works optimally when combined with a scientific skincare programme to restore a youthful appearance. In addition, the same technique has proved to be very effective in minimising acne scars and burn scars by removing scar collagen and replacing it with normal collagen. Consequently, scar contractures and depressed scars are improved.”
