Enzyme Facials: What are The Benefits?

Did you know that your skin is programmed to regenerate itself?

Our bodies are loaded with toxic substances like free radicals, sunlight and poisonous foods. Even when we don’t take care of them as well as we can, our bodies continue to regenerate themselves.

Yet over time, toxins and other substances can break down the skin.

Through extensive research, biochemists have discovered the power of enzymes to hydrate and tighten the skin through enzyme therapy, which essentially mimics the skin’s natural regenerative properties.

What are skin therapy enzymes?

Enzymes are catalytic proteins, which means they initiate or increase the performance of specific chemical reactions in the body. For many years, skin therapists and physicians believed that enzymes were not suitable for real skin therapy because they consist of protein molecules too large to penetrate the skin.

We now know that enzymes can be engineered to penetrate the cell’s lipid bilayer. Skin therapy enzymes use proteins formed in plant cells to act as organic catalysts in initiating or speeding up specific chemical reactions.

What is enzyme therapy?

Enzyme therapy ensures optimal skin function by turning dead cells into weak acid and flushing them from the skin. Through the process of reverse osmosis, cellular debris like toxins are cleared, and free radicals are neutralized. The process also increases oxygenation, cell metabolism, and immune function via blood and lymph circulation.

Enzyme therapy also stimulates the production of the amino acids proline, glycine, and lysine to enhance collagen production.

What are some key ingredients in enzyme facials?

 Enzyme therapy facials contain these specialized ingredients to help detoxify and heal the skin.


Beta-glucan has potent anti-oxidant and free radical scavenging properties. It directly stimulates the skin’s immune system by activating white blood cells which fight invaders within the dermis. Once activated, they release a series of compounds that stimulate the fibroblast cells to produce collagen and elastin.

Vitamin C (Ethyl Ascorbic Acid)

A stable form of vitamin C promotes collagen synthesis and makes an excellent skin brightener.


Kelp is one of the best plant sources of minerals, vitamins and essential amino acids.


Pantheon is a humectant that penetrates deeply, restores skin barrier function, and aids in vital tissue repair. It also has antimicrobial properties that are crucial to controlling the growth of bacteria and rebalancing oil production.

Hexapeptide 11

Hexapeptide 11 helps regulate key genes responsible for collagen production and important extracellular matrix components such as hyaluronic acid. It increases cellular oxygen and blood flow, improves collagen, and helps improve the skin’s elasticity.
