Up until now, you might have considered skin treatments, like microdermabrasion and dermaplaning, under a different category than face masks and face peels. However, what if we told you that you can actually incorporate both into your next visit?
That’s right! Believe it or not, there are a number of benefits that follow when incorporating enzymes into your treatment; who would have thought?
Enzymes treatments, in short, are composed of fruit enzymes that work to replenish and nourish the skin, eliminating dead skin cells, yielding immediate results.
For people with sensitive skin, enzymes are your best bet at relinquishing that beautiful glow that you’ve been craving, because unlike chemical peels, this treatment won’t leave your skin irritated or red.
Microdermabrasion, a fan favourite, is a procedure that gently removes the top layer of skin. This is especially important in fading acne scars and works wonders at brightening your complexion.
Oftentimes, this procedure works well with other treatments, enzymes being one of them. It is safe to perform both treatments together, and when microdermabrasion is performed before the enzyme, it helps to enhance penetration into the skin, for deeper and more drastic results.
Because enzymes stimulate cell renewal, pairing an enzyme treatment with the microdermabrasion allows for improving texture and shrinking pores, leaving behind a soft base for your makeup and skincare products!
If you’re not familiar with dermaplaning, it is defined as the process of exfoliating the outer layers of your skin, getting rid of all hair (including “peach fuzz”), resulting in a smooth face. The treatment can also help with reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as treat acne scars.
While dermaplaning on its own still sees success, we recommend carrying out an enzyme treatment post-dermaplaning to make sure that the dead skin cells are completely removed from the pores. Not only that, but your skin will thank you for the added benefits that enzymes carry, and you’ll surely glow brighter the next time you stand in front of a mirror.
Like mentioned above, we love each treatment individually, as their results are often dramatic and successful. However, the idea of performing a service and finishing it off with a safe and effective enzyme treatment seems like the right way to go; especially if it creates a better base, restores your skin barrier and makes you 10x more glowy—we’re definitely here for it!
