Enzyme treatments are gentle exfoliating processes that are designed to be less aggressive than even the mildest chemical peel, but more active than serums you can use at home.  Enzyme treatments are excellent treatments for sensitive and dry skin, including acneic skin and for individuals with rosacea.
