At Medical Esthetics by Katie's New Westminster Clinic, your Environ Ionzyme® DF II Facial is customized specifically for your skin and desired results. A detailed Advanced Skin Analysis using the latest research and developments in advanced skin treatments.

Environ Ionzyme® DF II Facial is the unique combination of Pulsed Iontophoresis (i.e. the electronic part of the technology) and Low-Frequency Sonophoresis (i.e. the sound wave part of the technology) in one probe to enhance the penetration of the essential ingredients by up to 40 times compared with manual application.  Treatment with vitamins A and C works on the skin in the opposite way to peeling, laser resurfacing or dermabrasion (which makes the skin thinner and artificial-looking).  Application of active vitamins makes the skin thicker, healthier and more beautiful. 

IONTOPHORESIS - an electrical current facilitates greater penetration of vitamins into the skin.  It is used for r larger surface areas such as the face and neck.  With conventional iontophoresis, changes are very much slower, whereas the Ionzyme DF II machine, the skin looks and feels younger within two or three treatments.

SONOPHORESIS involves the use of sound waves to transport vitamins molecules through the skin and products better penetration through the skin than conventional ultrasound.  It is used on limited areas such as the upper lip and character lines around the eyes, on scar tissue and on pigmentation marks.

Both methods can be combined with intensive treatments.

Using the patented electro-sonic science behind the Environ Ionzyme® DF II Technology, which helps to safely permeate the waterproof barrier of the skin, together with Environ’s expertly designed Professional Range in a particular sequence, the potential for the key ingredients to work with the skin is significantly enhanced. Enjoy up to 4000% increased product penetration with the help of the Environ Ionzyme® DF II Machine than if topically applied!

Environ Cool Peels - $175

The Environ Cool Peel Technology is a revolutionary approach in the concept of skin peeling. Traditional treatments are based on the destruction of the skin cells. The Environ Cool Peel does not put a strain on the skin, but rather supports the effects of the natural processes of healthy skin. If the skin cell is aggressively peeled this disrupts the skins natural barrier and water will easily be lost and environmental toxins can enter the skin more easily. Environ Cool Peels remove the excess upper layers of the skin and whilst maintaining its water-proofing. Environ Cool Peels are ideal for hydrating and refining; they repair cells and encourage cell exfoliation revealing fresh and youthful skin. Especially effective to treat scarring, rough-textured, sun damage, acne and rosacea.


All Environ facials use the highest quality ingredients, vitamins A, C & E, peptides and antioxidants. All of which are essential to repair and maintain healthy skin. All the facials below are tailored to your own personal skin requirements (prescriptive) and the following skin concerns can be addressed.



Recommended Treatment Frequency:
  • A full course of 12 to 24 treatments is recommended once a week or monthly.



Visible exfoliation doesn’t determine the efficacy of treatment. Generally, healthy skin has less visible exfoliation. Exfoliation often takes place at the cellular level and is not always apparent to the naked eye. Conversely, some patients’ skin is so impacted that it can take a few peels to loosen dead cells enough to allow them to shed. Typically, these patients will see little or no peeling initially, and then see sloughing after a few treatments. Using analogies that a patient can relate to can be an incredibly useful tool when explaining to a patient why they may not peel. For example, feeling drowsy after taking pain medication is a side effect, just as peeling is a side effect to a chemical peel; some people may feel drowsy when taking the medication and some may not, just as some may experience exfoliation from a peel and some may not – either way, the efficacy of the medication or peel is not contingent on the side effect.

    By the use of DF machine to enhance this delivery of top of the range ingredients takes facial treatments to the next level. The simultaneous use of Iontophotresis and Sonophoresis to provide the skin with maximum penetration of active ingredients for best possible results. Iontophoresis is an electrical current that is passed through the skin and facilitates greater penetration of vitamins into the skin.  It is used for larger surface areas such as the face and neck.  Sonophoresis involves the use of sound waves to transport vitamin molecules through the skin and produces better penetration through the skin than conventional ultrasound. It is used on limited areas such as the upper lip and around the eyes. When both methods are combined an intensive treatment is the outcome. For the best results we recommend weekly to monthly maintenance treatments and the use of the products at home.

  • What is the Environ Ionzyme DF II Treatment?

    Environ is one of the best anti-ageing skincare ranges on the market and Environ-Vitamins A, C & E skin range was voted as one of the top ranges for Facial treatments. But why is Environ so good? Environ is a natural preservative and additive-free range developed by South African plastic surgeon Dr Des Fernandes. The cornerstone of Environ is vitamin A and other absorbable fresh anti-oxidants such as vitamins C, E and beta-carotene. Vitamin A has a corrective effect on the skin, smoothing and softening it and protecting it from the damaging and ageing effects of ultraviolet radiation and other pollutants. It promotes the production of healthy collagen and elastin and improves the skin’s natural moisture, leading to healthy, younger-looking skin. Vitamin C improves the skin’s elasticity and controls pigment formation.
