Keratolyse means to break apart the keratin layers. KERATO is the prefix from the word keratin, and LYSE means to break apart. So the purpose of keratolyse is to BREAK APART DEAD CELL LAYERS.
Keratolyse is a vegetal cream. We call it vegetal because its basic ingredient is cellulose. Cellulose is the primary substance found in plant cell walls. Cellulose has a great affinity for keratin.
Keratolyse is not an enzyme peel, nor is it an “exfoliant”. It is important to understand the difference between the keratolyse, an enzyme peel and an exfoliant in order to fully appreciate the remarkable action of the keratolyse peeling.
An enzyme peel is supposed to “eat up” or digest the dead epidermal cells. This type of action on the skin can be irritating and produce sensitivity. An exfoliant, on the other hand, implies mechanical action. There’s something in the product that’s grainy and scrubby, and it’s not the product itself but the grain in it PLUS the rubbing that give the result. (Very similar to paint scraping). We do not believe in exfoliants for the face- they are too abrasive. We believe that keratolyse is a much better choice.
Keratolyse creates a natural attraction (or bond) between itself and the keratin of the dead skin cells. No matter how the keratolyse is removed you cannot help but remove a certain amount of the dead cell layer. However, for the maximum removal of the dead cell layer we use a gentle manual technique…the gommage method.
Ketatolyse peeling can be used to reduce the thickness of a sun damaged skin, to reduce pigmentary stains, to improve the appearance of post acne scars and also stretch marks. It will greatly improve the appearance of wrinkles by removing the dead cell build up. The lines are softened and your products can now reach a livelier healthier cell which, over time, is what produces the beautiful changes in the skin. The skin is a living organ and it will respond most graciously to proper care.
THE PURPOSE OF KERATOLYSE PEELING

When the skin is breathing and functioning properly the end result is a “healthy glow”.
FREQUENCY OF PEELS
We recommend keratolyse peeling on all of our regular clients two times per year, preferably in the SPRING and FALL, in a series of three or more. These can be done as closely as every fourth day, but no more than a week should pass in between peels. You will be scheduling a total of 5 appointments. In between the 3rd peel and the deep moisture treatment there is a product you will need to use at home- a preparation. The goal is to saturate the newly exposed cells with this active product. This is referred to as the “Shock Treatment”.
Anytime you look at the surface of the skin and the texture is not beautiful, think of the keratolyse as a long term treatment.
For aging skin, keratolyse will give the best results, however, that may not be the best place to start. It is important that we get to know your skin and that it is accustomed to the NELLY DE VUYST products.
THE RESULTS OF ANY AND ALL OF YOUR NELLY DE VUYST SALON TREATMENTS WILL LAST LONGER AND BE EVEN MORE SPECTACULAR WHEN YOU HAVE AN EFFECTIVE HOME PROGRAM IN PLACE. WHAT YOU DO ON A DAILY BASIS, ABSOLUTELY MAKES A DIFFERENCE.
