Chemical Peels vs Enzyme Peels


If you are not sure what the difference is when trying to book a chemical peel treatment versus the enzyme peel, well let me help you.

When you come in for your appointment I will always do a consultation and a skin analysis to dertermine what is best for your skin and the results that you are looking for. I will always do what's best for your skin. If your skins barrier isn't intact then I will be able to explain to you why the treatment you are asking for isn't right for you. Which is one of the reasons I stand out in my industry.

So let me make it easier to know what you need for your skin.

Chemical Peel: A chemical peel is a skincare treatment that uses acids like glycolic, salicylic, or lactic acid to exfoliate the skin. It breaks down dead skin cell bonds, promoting the shedding of outer layers for improved skin texture and a youthful appearance. Chemical peels vary in strength, from superficial to deep, and provide dramatic results for issues like fine lines, sun damage, and acne scars.

Enzyme Peel: Enzyme peels are milder exfoliation treatments using natural enzymes from fruits like papaya or pineapple. They gently dissolve dead skin cells without acids, making them ideal for sensitive skin, or for someone that has never had a peel. Enzyme peels offer a brighter complexion, improved texture, and help with clogged pores, all with minimal to no downtime.

Choosing the Right Peel: The key difference lies in intensity: chemical peels offer more significant results but may require more recovery time, while enzyme peels are gentler, making them suitable for sensitive skin types. To decide between the two, consider your skin's needs and tolerance, consulting with an esthetician for personalized advice on the best peel for your skin concerns.

So, let's get your appointment booked since this is the perfect season to start with getting your skin glowing.
