Exfoliating with Enzymes

Exfoliating with enzymes are a great way to remove dead skin. Enzymes can stimulate cell turnover and give a brighter, smoother appearance. There is also the added benefit of better product penetration and absorption.


This soothing Marine Enzyme Peel provides gentle exfoliation of accumulated dead skin cells from the surface of the skin through enzymatic action

After cleansing and toning, gently apply a thin layer of gel to the face and neck. Perform a light massage for approximately 2-3 minutes. Steam according to skin type (8-10 minutes). Remove reside with moistened cotton pads or sponges. Follow with extractions and standard facial procedures. 


This is a very effective physical exfoliator that helps purify and regenerate the skin. It is recommended as an anti-wrinkle and anti-blemish treatment. All-natural ingredients such as green papaya, pineapple extract, and honey help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and blemishes.


Paraben and preservative-free, this spicy, detoxifying face and body polish, infused with a powerful pumpkin enzyme, combined with the gentle exfoliation of crushed bamboo and jojoba micro beads helps to cleanse the skin of dead cells. Natural acids polish and refine, while rich emollients leave skin silky smooth, soft and radiant.

7 Effective Esthetic Treatments

With so many new treatments, services, and equipment on the market, it is so hard to decide which direction to expand your business! We talk to estheticians and spas all day long, and we hear what is working, and what isn't. And now I am sharing this with you!

Check out our 7 Effective Esthetic Treatment list below, and reach out to us if you are interested in adding any of these services!


  1. Hydroderm / Aqua-foliation
    The new era in powerful skin rejuvenation. No abrasion. Deep cleanses, exfoliates, extracts, hydrates, oxygenates and micro circulates all in one session.
  2. Microdermabrasion
    Microdermabrasion softens fine lines and wrinkles, helps to smooth coarsely textured skin, decreases the appearance of scarring, decreases pore size, and reduces superficial hyper-pigmentation, also known as age spots. Microdermabrasion also makes it easier for skincare products to penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin and help build collagen, which gives skin its youthful appearance.
  3. Microcurrent
    Microcurrent facial sculpting technology is a non-surgical alternative to facial cosmetic surgery. Visible firming and contouring, lifting overall drooping features; reduction of fine lines, creases, and wrinkles; Improved blood circulation and lymphatic drainage.
  4. Hyaluronic Acid
    Hyaluronic acid, among other benefits, maintains the moisture level in the skin and contributes to its suppleness and elasticity. Hyaluronic acid has the amazing ability to hold 1,000 times its weight in water, making it an ideal ingredient for effective esthetic treatments!
  5. High Frequency
    High-frequency treatment uses low-current high-frequency alternating currents, delivered via a glass electrode. Because the high-frequency current converts some of the oxygen in the air into ozone, the treatment has a germicidal action and is also drying and warming. Consequently, the treatment is used to aid healing, and also to help desquamation (the skin's natural exfoliation), and stimulate sweat and sebaceous glands.
  6. Ultrasonic Exfoliation
    Ultrasonic exfoliation works by creating high-speed oscillations, leaving skin smooth, fresh, and perfectly prepared for product application. The flip side of the spatula provides an intense micro-massage to warm the skin tissue which stimulates blood flow and help the penetration of skincare products into the deeper levels of skin tissue. Offer your clients the deepest clean they have ever felt!
  7. Enzyme Masks
    Disincrustating vegetal enzymes allow for gentle removal of dead cells of the skin's outer layer without overstraining its surface. They dissolve and digest impurities, comedones, toxins of the cutaneous surface. This process promotes refining of the skin texture and a tightening of the pores. A remarkably gentle, effective treatment that visibly evens skin tone, refines texture, reduces hyperpigmentation, and diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
