I’m desperate to keep the wrinkles at bay and cling onto my youth and if like me, you fancy peeling away the years, then the Tri-Enzyme facial is just for you. The Elemis Tri-Enzyme facial is a resurfacing treatment. This treatment helps to leave the skin brighter, smoother and more radiant after just one treatment. It helps the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, stimulates cell regeneration, reduces pigmentation and acne scarring and it is deeply cleansing. My therapist told me this treatment is especially popular for people after their holidays looking to undo the damage the sun has done to their skin whilst away.
During the Tri-Enzyme facial your therapist will cleanse your skin with the Tri-Enzyme Facial Wash, a daily treatment that speeds up the natural cell renewal cycle of your skin. This product leaves a newly cleansed complexion and allows maximum benefit from the rest of the resurfacing products. Your therapist will exfoliate your skin with the Elemis Papaya Enzyme Peel, using fruit enzymes to exfoliate away the dead skin cells. Your therapist will then give you a wonderfully relaxing hand and arm massage while this product does its work.
Three different serums are used along with the Tri-Enzyme Resurfacing Lotion throughout the treatment. Your therapist will apply the three serums at different times throughout the treatment.
The first serum is for underneath the Tri-Enzyme peel-off mask. This quick-setting mask provides the skin with a deep cleanse and gentle exfoliation, and helps restore moisture levels.
The second serum is then applied by your therapist, before a soothing cream mask. While both masks are on you will relax with a neck and shoulder massage and scalp massage.
Your therapist will then apply the third serum and leave it on your skin. This is left on as it reduces the likelihood of any aggression to the skin. To finish the treatment, your therapist will choose the moisturiser most suited to your skin, and then apply it along with Liquid Layer, which is an SPF cream to protect the skin.
After the treatment my skin felt deeply cleansed, extremely soft, radiant and smooth with any imperfections appearing diminished. You will see the clinically proven results after just one treatment. There is up to 75% resurfacing and up to 32% increased skin smoothness. Great if you want to relax but also see instant results. Not only was this facial relaxing but the products used didn’t leave my skin red or irritated, just fresh and soft. I would definitely recommend this to a friend.
