Enzymes and Masks
Enzymes are among the most versatile and effective treatments provided by skin care professionals. They are considered a milder form of exfoliation, due to the fact that enzymes break down specific skin structures of the desmosome. chemical peels, by contrast, denature epidermal proteins in a somewhat indiscriminate manner.
Enzymes are proteins that cause a specific chemical change in other substances. Many different types of enzymes function throughout the body, and they are considered catalysts—they make things happen. In skincare, enzymes function mainly to digest, or break, the peptide bonds of proteins. to the esthetician, this means that cellular debris “stuck” to the surface of the skin is gently released, resulting in a fresher, more clarified and brighter appearance.
The type of enzyme used on the skin is critical to the outcome. Circadia's Enzyme treatments come in Cocoa, Raspberry and Zymase Citrus, and contain a combination of bromelain from pineapple, papain from papaya, and trypsin, a serine protease. For freshness and efficacy, powder and activator are individually mixed for each treatment.
