Want young, glowing and blemish-free skin? An enzyme facial may be the only way to go.
Unless you are already familiar with enzyme facials; aka: chemical peels, the concept may seem rather terrifying.
But in-fact enzyme facials have changed a lot over the last two years, becoming less of a traumatic experience and more of a pleasurable one. And the benefits, well, they certainly speak for themselves.
With many women, including celebrities like Kylie Minogue and Kim Kardashian claiming enzyme facials are the answer to obtaining youthful, healthy looking skin.
How do they compare with chemical peels?
Of course, enzyme facials shouldn’t be confused with the different types of chemical peel facials currently available, which are still rather harsh on the skin. This is because they are often made up of chemical-based ingredients, which can result in super sensitive red skin, keeping you trapped indoors for a day or two.
Most enzyme facials are now predominantly made up from fruit enzymes. These are high in natural healthy acids, such as pineapple, papaya, pumpkin and even cinnamon.
These soft, fruit-based acids are not harmful to the skin. But they do help to treat and clear blemishes, exfoliate deeply to reveal new layers of younger looking skin, and even help hide the effects of ageing.
Road testing it in Sydney:
To learn more about enzyme facials and to see the results for ourselves, we went to well-known skin treatment clinic DMK (Danne Montague-King) for a two-hour facial treatment.
DMK is the only company in the world, who uses transfer messenger enzymes. These assist the skin in working on developing their own natural enzymes and boosts natural collagen levels, to help skin repair itself for longer lasting results in skin health.
Enzymes are a living substance which regulate our health and work to maintain certain minerals in the body. These form a natural system of antioxidants in the skin. Properly formulated, when enzymes are used the right way, they remove dead proteins in the skin and physically reverse the signs of ageing.
And, where many enzyme facials work on the surface of the skin, the DMK Enzyme Facial Treatment works deep within the skin. It aims to help the skin strengthen itself on a cellular level, creating a healthy environment for cells to live and thrive in.
Here’s what to expect when you book yourself in for an enzyme facial with DMK.
First you are treated with a 45-minute deep cleanse to the face and décolletage area. This detoxes, clean away dead skin cells and prep the skin for the enzyme facial.
Small nodes which are attached to an electronic device are placed all over the body. This device send small waves of energy through the body and aren’t felt at all. The energy pulses are designed to help the body achieve optimal relaxation. By relaxing the nervous system completing and makes it easier to stay calm whilst waiting for the enzyme facial to be applied, set and then removed.
Once the enzyme facial has been applied to the face and décolletage, the skin will begin to pulsate from the enzymes. This is the mask working to circulate blood and oxygen flow throughout the skin cells of the face and décolletage area. The enzyme mask is left on for at least an hour, once it has set as hard as concrete.
Hot towels are then used to remove the mask. This is followed by rich vitamin-based serums and moisturisers applied to seep deep into the pores and restore the skin to it’s natural state of healthy and glowing.
