Chemical&Enzyme Peels

A chemical peel uses a chemical solution to remove layers of skin, revealing the more youthful skin underneath. Chemical peels can reduce or improve fine lines and wrinkles, acne, scars, uneven skin coloring and other skin imperfections. Different chemicals determine the depth of your peel and type of skin condition treated.

An enzyme peel is a type of chemical exfoliator, which utilizes natural enzymes that dissolve dead skin cells. To clarify, these enzymes are proteins that accelerate chemical reactions within the body and occur naturally. In fact, there are several different types of enzymes, however most skincare formulations utilize protein-degrading enzymes (protease) that are derived from fruits.

What is the difference between Enzyme & Chemical peels?

Both peels are considered chemical exfoliators that are used to regenerate and rejuvenated skin, they work on different levels.

  • Enzyme face peels are mild exfoliators that work only on the surface layer of skin and exfoliate only dead cells. Since natural enzymes provide gentle exfoliation, they can be used by all skin types. But in general, they work better for sensitive, irritated and congested skin, and for those who can’t tolerate chemical peels or didn’t try them yet.

  • Chemical peels provide more intense and deeper exfoliation. Instead of using enzymes, this more aggressive treatment utilizes alpha hydroxy acids (glycolic, lactic, malic, mandelic) and beta hydroxy acid (salicylic acid). In addition to exfoliating dead skin on the surface level, these acids also penetrate into deeper layers of skin, and depending on the concentration of the peel they can exfoliate healthy living cells as well.

Overall, enzyme peels are considered more natural and safer exfoliating option than chemical peels. However, if your skin is used to chemical peels, then enzyme peels might be too mild for your skin, and you might feel like there is no significant difference after the treatment.
