Enzymatic Peels

Midwest Plastic Surgery and The Popularity of Enzyme Peels in Chicago

One of the more popular beauty treatments done at many facial spas and plastic surgery centers is the enzyme peel. This is a specially designed beauty product that helps to deeply cleanse and rejuvenate the skin of the face by removing dead cells and cleanings dirt and oil from the pores. This product has come to be known as a peel because it literally peels off layers of dead cells and grime and reveals the healthy radiant skin below. Furthermore, this process helps with overall skin care and maintenance and can lessen the appearance of age spots, acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, and blemishes.

Understanding Enzyme Peels

An enzyme peel most commonly will be made with fruit enzymes and contains nutrients and minerals too that both nourish skin cells and help remove old dead skin cells. The most popular enzymes used in these peels are from papayas, but some peels also utilize green apple enzymes. The skin-benefiting properties of common enzymes used in these peels can also be seen in pineapple, ginger, pumpkin, banana, and aloe.

These ingredients are also used in smaller quantities in popular mixes of papaya and green apple peels. Sometimes the term restorative enzyme peels are used to describe these facial products. This is because the skin is restored during the peeling process and becomes healthier and more radiant. These peels help restore the natural look and feel of healthy skin cells and aid in routine skin care and maintenance.

Chemical vs Enzyme

These amazing enzyme peels are in fact much different from the also common chemical peel, mainly in that its effect is much more subtle and natural in look and feel. Furthermore, chemical peels are much harsher on the skin because they remove more layers of skin cells and have a greater chance for irritation and a reaction to the chemicals used. As long as you are not allergic to the fruits used, an enzyme peel carries no real risk of allergic reaction or major irritation. Enzyme-based peels also yield a more natural look and when applied by a professional can deliver amazing results without the risk that some chemical peels pose.
