The DMK Difference

DMK Treatment Before and After

Patty’s Journey is an example of the DMK difference. Patty had 6 DMK treatments and a few Lightwave Therapy sessions over the course of one month, and her after photo is the latest result. Patty was struggling with a desquamated enzyme functionality problem. Rather than moving through the skin smoothly, her enzymes were asleep and sticking together like layers of cement. The result was her skin had a thick and dull texture, and the dead cells were building up on her sebaceous glands and hair follicles resulting in acne.

Most skin treatments focus on treating the surface of skin. So another treatment might just attempt to resolve Patty's visible acne. It makes some sense. The surface is what we see. It’s how we gauge results. From what we see on the surface, we can make a decision as to whether something is working or not. So it’s not surprising that’s where most treatments choose to focus.

But wait, what?! That sounds crazy.

Focusing only on the surface means ignoring the real problem. It’s a quick fix, sure, but it’s not doing anything for the long-term health of your skin.

That’d be like repainting your deck without first making sure the wood itself is in decent condition. If the wood was damaged and you painted over it, sure it would look better immediately, but all the problems that you ignored would soon work their way right back to the surface. You’d be repainting all the time trying to make your deck look good. But if you just spent a little time caring for the wood underneath, you could save yourself a lot of time and effort.

DMK is the same premise. Treat and strengthen the skin at a cellular level, and you’ll be rewarded with skin that not only looks good on the outside, but is healthy on the inside.

The DMK process is: Remove. Rebuild. Protect. Maintain

Most skin treatments stop at “Remove,” but not DMK. DMK works because it matches an individual’s unique biochemistry with the appropriate treatments. Then it continues to move through all four steps of the process.

Remove: This is first step. This is how we “open the door” for skin revision. We often hear the word “peel” to describe this step, but the skin is more complex than simply peeling off layer after layer like an onion. The best way to “Remove” is through a more complex process called enzyme hydrolyzation, which ultimately brings new skin cells to the surface.

Rebuild: In the rebuild phase, we restore skin’s optimum function. The DMK treatments achieve this through transepidermal delivery so the enzymes can simulate the functions that should be happening, and eventually your skin will re-learn what to do.

When we younger, our skin automatically performed at its optimum level, but eventually time brings about different imbalances. This is all normal and the result of every day skin functions. Acne is not some horrible affliction. It’s simply the result of an increase in he cellular proliferation and sebum production. When you understand the problem, you know exactly how to treat it. Similarly aging happens when the processes start to become slow and sluggish. With this in mind, we can introduce the right enzymes to help the skin function efficiently again.

Protect: Once we’ve starting rebuilding the skin, we need to protect if from everything that can damage the good work we’ve done so far. Antioxidants are used at this stage to maximize the strength of inhibitors and the cells that regulate the immune system. And perhaps most important, is the application of sunscreen.

Maintain: Only so much can happen behind the doors of our treatment rooms. The right homecare is essential for achieving your desired results. DMK doesn’t just leave you hanging; the concept provides you with a lifelong skin management program that is easy to make a part of your everyday routine.

DMK works because it’s such a natural process. It’s perfect for all of those stubborn skin conditions that seem so difficult to manage: acne, rosacea, scarring, wrinkles and more.

If your skin has lost its former luster, DMK can help to revise and restore. Like any of our treatments, DMK is a journey; but it’s one journey that is well worth taking.
