Enzyme Peels vs. Chemical Peels: Which one is right for your skincare regimen?

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels can provide a variety of results, depending on the strength of the treatment. Chemical compounds including salicylic acid, glycolic acid, and lactic acid are often used. Chemical peel procedures burn the entire outer layer and epidermis of your skin and stronger acids can remove the skin's middle layer known as the dermis (live skin tissue) These peels range on the spectrum from superficial to medium to deep as far as how much they penetrate the skin’s layers. Chemical peels exfoliate dead skin cells and can also remove living cells. While effective, chemical peels are associated with heightened sun sensitivity and may not be appropriate for all skin types. In addition, medium and deep chemical peels may require weeks of down time due to pain, redness, and even scabbing – and as such, it can take weeks to see benefits to the skin. Chemical peels are generally administered by physicians or estheticians on a periodic basis. Stronger chemical peels to the dermal layers should only be given by MD who specializes in skin procedures or Dermatologist.

Enzyme Peels

Enzyme peels offer a more gentle solution that can be incorporated into a regular skincare regimen. Enzymes are complex proteins that cause a chemical change. These treatments can speed up natural chemical reactions in the skin that renew skin cells by dissolving and exfoliating dead cells and impurities from the epidermis. Enzymes are also reported to diminish scars, age spots, fine lines, and discoloration, and may also penetrate the skin to cleanse pores and improve skin tone and texture. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, you have 19,000,000 skin cells per square inch covering 20 square feet of skin across your body. Enzyme peels revitalizes your skin to return a youthful glow by improving texture and appearance.  The most amazing thing about enzyme peels is that they do not damage or remove live tissue! They exfoliate ONLY dead cells, which is a big reason why enzyme peels are great for nearly all skin types. Because there is no injury to live skin, there’s no down time – so no hiding out in the dark at home for days on end!
