When dealing with the refurbishing of facial skin, peels are a popular option.
Unlike microdermabrasion, laser peels and many other popular deep exfoliation techniques, enzyme peels do not require the involvement of a medical professional. A licensed esthetician applies natural enzymes that gently slough away old cells and reveal new healthy skin. This holistic skin care technique reduces the appearance of age spots, superficial scars and fine lines. Over time, it can even lessen the appearance of deeper wrinkles. Enzymes penetrate the upper layers of the tissue, cleansing pores and improving skin texture, tone, elasticity and tautness.
Two of the most popular fruits used in enzyme peels are papaya and pineapple, both rich, natural sources of alpha hydroxy acid. These fruits also contain protein-dissolving enzymes that encourage collagen production. Peels may also be derived from lemon, grapefruit and grapes.
The rejuvenating process of fruit enzymes is very gentle, and it is essentially more appropriate for people with sensitive skin. It is an excellent choice for individuals who want to achieve a youthful, healthy look.
