Mandarin Oriental Spa HK Reception

The Mandarin Spa at Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong welcomes Dr. Des Fernandes from Environ 

The award-winning Mandarin Spa Hong Kong at Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong is delighted to welcome Dr. Des Fernandes, Founder and Scientific Director of prestigious South African skincare pioneer ENVIRON, to Hong Kong to host an exclusive workshop on May 10, 2017 and launch the Cosmetic Roll-Cit and Cosmetic Gold Roll-Cit by ENVIRON.

As a renowned plastic and reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Fernandes has devoted more than 30 years to researching skin. Through intensive research, he discovered the essential role vitamin A plays in skin health and was determined to create a skincare range that would maintain healthy skin. ENVIRON is a breakthrough range of products and treatments, using a tiered skincare system that gradually exposes skin to high levels of vitamin A, antioxidants and peptides, which counteracts the harmful effects of the environment, pollution, and stress to create radiant, visibly improved skin.

Exclusively available only at The Mandarin Spa, the Cosmetic Roll-Cit is a hand-held rolling device with a roller head embedded with micro-needles for use on the face at home. The device works in synergy with the topically applied ENVIRON products, improving the penetration of vitamin A into the active layer of the skin. Leaving no damage to the skin, the device can enhance the effectiveness of the products, restore skin tightening, balance the skin tone and texture, and reduce the appearance of fine lines, scars and dilated blood vessels. The Cosmetic Roll-Cit is priced at HKD 780. The Cosmetic Gold Roll-Cit is a 14ct gold plated version and specially crafted for use on areas that demand extra special care such as on the delicate skin around eyes, nose, and mouth, is also available at HKD 2,400.

To launch these premiere products, Dr. Fernandes will be in Hong Kong to host a 90-minute workshop on the importance of vitamin A on Wednesday, 10 May 2017 at 7 p.m. He will share the benefits of vitamin A to skin health, illustrate the cause of vitamin A deficiency, advise on ways to combat the problem, and answer questions from the attendees. The workshop is complimentary, limited to 30 guests, and RSVP for this event is essential. To RSVP, please call +852 2825 4888 or email [email protected].

To complement the products, three exclusive facials from ENVIRON – Optimal Skin, Active Vitamin Therapy, and Vitamin Booster – are regularly available at The Mandarin Spa. Each non-invasive facial uses the DF II MACHINE, designed to stimulate maximum thickening of the skin, normalization and improvement of the collagen and elastin. This in turn allows for better control of pigmentation production, restoration of normal skin blood flow and proper oxygenation of the skin. This innovative system helps with the penetration of the active vitamins and essential growth factors into the skin to provide fast and effective results. Prices start from HKD1,200 + 10% service charge. Reservations can be made by calling the spa directly on +852 2825 4888 or by e-mailing [email protected].


Environ is a globally recognised and loved professional skin care brand that is built on science, beauty and care. We believe that skin has a life and that vitamin A is the “oxygen” it needs to look beautiful and healthy for life. It is for this reason that we actively pursue skin care science to skillfully and consistently develop best-in-class, scientifically researched and developed products that work with skin. For further information please visit
