A chemical peel is a treatment used to improve skin texture and tone. A solution is applied to the skin to lower the pH. Loosening the connections between dead skin cells and stimulating new cell growth. This process causes superficial layers of dead skin to peel off, revealing a smoother and more radiant complexion.
Like a chemical peel, an enzyme peel is also a treatment used to improve skin texture and appearance. Enzyme peels both nourish and exfoliate the skin and are usually made with fruit enzymes. The most popular fruit enzymes are papain, found in papayas, and bromelain, found in pineapple.
