Enzyme Peel

A modern woman who wants to maintain her youthfulness for a long time must regularly visit a cosmetologist. Basic skincare procedures can be performed at home, but deep cleansing and rejuvenation of the skin require the services of a professional.

Enzyme peeling is considered a gentle method for removing dead skin cells. It is a popular salon procedure recommended for all women starting from the age of 25. Visible effects can be seen after the very first session.

Cosmetologists at our salon invite you to experience enzyme peeling. Our specialists have received specialized training and use tested products. You can schedule a preliminary consultation right now!

What Is Enzyme Peeling?

Enzyme peeling is a modern method for deep skin cleansing. It uses special naturally-derived enzymes as active components. These enzymes work similarly to cosmetic acids but are much gentler and milder. Enzymes only affect the top layer of the epidermis by weakening the chemical bonds between skin cells.

The most popular enzymes used in cosmetic procedures include:

  • Lysozyme
  • Pepsin
  • Chymotrypsin
  • Extracts from papaya, fig, and pineapple

The extremely gentle action on the skin is a significant characteristic of enzyme peeling. The procedure in the salon is painless and has almost no side effects. Facial enzyme peeling can serve as preparation for laser resurfacing or microneedling.

Indications for Enzyme Peeling and Results of the Procedure

Cleansing the skin with peels is the foundation of proper facial care. Without it, achieving a smooth texture and healthy skin tone is difficult. Individuals with oily and problematic skin are recommended to undergo enzyme peels twice a week. If breakouts on the face occur infrequently, one peel every 10 days is sufficient. A complete course should consist of a minimum of 10 procedures.

The effects of regular enzyme facial peeling include:

  • Slowing down the aging process
  • Stimulating collagen production
  • Normalizing sebaceous gland function
  • Improving skin blood circulation
  • Reducing inflammation and redness

Enzymes slightly lighten the skin, eliminate blackheads, and reduce the risk of acne. The procedure complements other cosmetic treatments well. Enzyme peels can be performed at any time of the year and are suitable for both fair-skinned and darker-skinned individuals.

There is no need for an extended recovery period after a well-done procedure. The skin does not peel or flake, and extensive redness does not occur. Right after the peel, the face looks fresh and healthy.


Despite the safety and painlessness of enzyme peeling, there are some contraindications to consider. It's best to refrain from facial enzyme peels if you have an allergy to one of the product's components. If you have skin infections or unhealed wounds, it's necessary to avoid any cosmetic procedures not approved by a dermatologist.

Other contraindications include pregnancy, breastfeeding, diabetes, and hormonal disorders. Before undergoing the procedure, a sensitivity test to the product's components is necessary. To do this, apply a few drops of the product to the inner wrist. If no irritation occurs, you can proceed with the procedure.

Stages of Enzyme Facial Peeling

A session with our cosmetologist at our salon begins with facial cleansing. The skin is treated with cleansing gel and lotion. Thoroughly removing dirt and makeup is crucial.

After that, a pre-peeling solution is applied to the face. The main goal is to prepare the epidermis for cleansing and create a favorable environment for enzyme activity. Then, the master applies the peeling solution to the skin, moving from the forehead to the chin. Slight redness or a mild burning sensation is normal. The solution is left on the skin for 10 to 30 minutes, depending on the skin type.

After the necessary time has elapsed, the peel is rinsed off with alkaline neutralizers. An moisturizing mask or serum is applied to the face. Finally, the skin is covered with a nourishing cream.
