The mechanism of action of
Protein enzymes are used in cosmetology for a long time. They are mostly known to us from enzyme peels, which destroy the connection between the dead cells of the epidermis and cause mild peeling of the top layers of the skin. Now on the basis of already known enzymes developed drugs for hair removal on the body. The composition of these substances include: papain (extracted from papaya), trypsin and chymotrypsin.
They are designed so that active components are penetrated into the hair follicles and destroying them. The thermal effect has a double impact: first, it contributes to the widening mouths of the hair follicles to the drug better inside, and secondly, the heated skin and the drug on it, which activates the enzymes.
The surrounding skin is not damaged by enzymes, as protected by several layers of epidermal cells. All that can happen to skin is a light peeling of the top layer or an allergic reaction to components of the drug, which is extremely rare.
Enzymes affect only those hair follicles that are in the growth phase, because to remove all hair in one procedure impossible. After the destruction of the growing point of the hair follicle the hair growth stops and the follicle grows.
The method is powerless against in-grown hairs, as hair follicle ingrown hair is not reported with the skin surface and the drug to get to him. But with time, decreasing the number of the hair in the growth phase, the number of ingrown hair is also reduced.
