Enzymatic peel is an exfoliating treatment that is not harsh on the skin. It uses natural enzymes to peel the top layer of the skin and reveal a brighter complexion, fresher and smoother skin.
Enzymatic peel is an excellent treatment that gently works on the skin as a part of your skincare or anti-aging regimen without damaging it. This treatment, when administered by a professional aesthetician, will help your skin receive the following benefits:
- Total cleansing of the skin (gets rid of dirt, bacteria, and dead skin)
- Stimulate the renewal of new skin (epidermis)
- Refresh the lost moisture of the skin
- Improve the skin’s texture, making it smooth and even
- Reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation
- Reduce the signs of aging and sun damage
- Revitalize, brighten, and enhance dull skin
A complete skincare routine or rejuvenating treatment should include exfoliating. Cleansing with an Enzymatic peel will pamper the skin. But it is not the only option in cosmetics. A chemical peel is also great in shedding the most damaged layer of the skin. And most clients are more familiar with it.
Both Enzymatic and Chemical peel are rejuvenating treatments with promising results. However, an Enzymatic treatment has a few benefits that make it more ideal than using a chemical peel.
1. The enzymatic peel works on all types of skin.
Both Enzymatic peel and Chemical peel works on all types of skin. However, a Chemical peel uses chemicals such as glycolic and lactic acid. These chemicals show a significant effect as an exfoliation but can also damage live tissues.
An enzymatic peel, however, works even on sensitive types of skin. The natural enzymes use a combination of papain from papaya juice and bromelain to exfoliate the outer layer of the epidermis. We use ZO® peel for a safe treatment that works any conditions of the skin.
The gentle touch of Enzymatic peel makes it a good alternative for a chemical peel to people with sensitive skin, but it is as effective as a chemical peel. Enzymatic peel effectively combats multiple skin problems such as congested and large pores, acne scars, and wrinkles.
2. Gentle on the skin
Some people say that you can never over-exfoliate. This conception is only true if you are using a gentle exfoliation treatment such as Enzymatic peel. Harsh exfoliation treatment can damage the skin instead of cleansing it. But since Enzymatic peel is lighter and more delicate exfoliation, you can add it to your regular skincare regimen.
Enzymatic peel does not shred the skin too deep. It only peels the most outer layer of the epidermis and targets the dead skin on the face. Unlike Chemical peel with a harsher substance that has risks of damaging even the live and healthy tissue of the skin.
When applied to the skin, the gentleness of Enzymatic peel lowers the risk of inflammation after treatment. Most likely, clients who had chemical peel experienced stinging and inflamed skin after the treatment because of the chemical.
This enzyme peel will be ideal for people who want to complete their skincare regimen with a natural and gentle approach.
3. The result is immediately visible
The enzymatic peel works effectively in removing the build-up of impurities in the skin. After applying the treatment, you can see visible results, unlike chemical peel that will take two to three weeks before seeing significant changes in the skin condition.
An Enzymatic peel is a great and easy day-before-the-party treatment. Suppose you have an important event the next day, and you need an immediate improvement in your skin. An enzyme peel can give you an instant result.
4. It can be administered with pregnant or breastfeeding clients
One of the significant problems of pregnant or breastfeeding clients who had previously taken Chemical peel regularly is the sudden halt from the treatment. A chemical peel may not harm the health of the mother. But there is a risk in the baby’s health once your body absorbs the chemical and transfer it to the newborn.
Contradictory, Enzymatic peels do not pose unwanted side effects and risks to the health of either the mother or the baby. However, consultation with a medical professional is crucial before taking the treatment.
5. Safe for people with weak health
Clients with a poor immune system caused by a previous medical condition should be wary and extra careful about the products they apply to their skin. Some chemical products may have bad effects on their health. Chemical peels, for instance, should not be administered to clients with the compromised immune systems.
A product with natural ingredients is more advisable for them, like Enzymatic peel. Natural enzyme skincare made from fruit extract does not contain aggressive ingredients. Thus, it is safer for everyone. However, a consultation with a medical professional is still necessary.
Enzymatic Peel VS. Chemical Peel
Both treatments have individual strength that benefits the skin of the right client. But if you are looking for natural ingredients to exfoliate that will also take care and gently approach your skin, then Enzymatic peel is the proper treatment for you.
Why you should exfoliate
Exfoliating is beneficial for the renewal of the skin. It is important to keep your face clean and exfoliated to remove the dead skin cell and build-up impurities on the pores. Doing so will make your skin radiant, smooth, and fresh.
