Сellulite

Diagnosis

Cellulite occurs through poor circulation and poor lymphatic drainage which cause fat cells to become engorged. These fat cells then push against the connective tissue beneath a person’s skin to cause the surface of the skin to dimple or pucker and look lumpy. Oestrogen stimulates collagenase formation in the skin’s connective tissues. Collagenase breaks down the connective tissue, weakening collagen and causing fat to bulge upward to form a lumpy surface. It is typically caused by factors such as genetics, hormones, hypothyroidism, lack of exercise, poor blood circulation and lymphatics.

Eczema, Psoriasis

Your skin cells are constantly renewing themselves. New cells are growing while old cells die and are shed off from the surface of the skin. Psoriasis is a chronic condition that is the result of skin cells growing too quickly causing a build-up of excess skin cells on the surface of the skin to form thick silvery patches. These patches of dry, flaky skin are called plaques.

psoriasis-treatment-toronto

This abnormal proliferation of skin cells can be found anywhere on the body but in mild cases, it is more commonly found on the knees, elbows and the scalp. Sometimes the condition is barely noticeable and is often dismissed.. In severe cases, the condition can spread over very large regions of the body or in some cases, the entire body is covered with thick, layers of flaky skin.

It is not known what causes Psoriasis but despite its unsightly appearance, it is not contagious. There is no known cure for psoriasis but it can be controlled with certain medications or topical lotions and crèmes.
Psoriasis can affect anyone of any age, gender or race.

The Symptoms of Psoriasis

  • Raised bumps, thickened and scaly skin manifesting in patches
  • Red bumps or blisters filled with pus
  • Tiny blood spots on the skin
  • Patches of flaky skin on the scalp appearing to be dandruff
  • Finger nails and toe nails have yellowish brown appearance
  • Lesions on the genitals
  • Symptoms can be found in any region of the body

Treating Psoriasis

Although there is no cure for psoriasis it can be kept at bay with a topical solution such as DMK BETA GEL especially where only small areas are affected. This can be supplemented with a treatments such as DMK’s ENZYME THERAPY which is a highly effective solution for bringing relief to psoriasis.

For much larger areas of the body that are affected by psoriasis, DMK’s BODY ENZYME THERAPYTreatment is the answer. Enzyme therapy restores the skin’s natural processes at a deep cell level which helps it to function normally. This helps to keep the psoriasis in check.

Scars

DMK – A World Leader in Scar Revision and Post-Operative Wound Management

header-scars-bruises-treatment

DMK’s unique method of scar revision is highly effective at reducing scar tissue and smoothing uneven skin textures and tones. Many clients come to us after using ineffective scar treatment products which work topically rather than remodeling the skin back to form a firm, flat surface.

Scars

Now at last, there is a method that really works to give you clear, smooth skin and help you regain your confidence.

scar

Why Some Methods For Treating Scars Don’t Work

There are many crèmes on the market that claim to eliminate scars. The truth is that most of these are ineffective. Scars actually need a treatment protocol to “re-damage” and remove the scarred tissue, and then rebuild a stronger firmer tissue underneath.

DMK stimulates the rebuilding process with ENZYME THERAPY. Simply rubbing crèmes or lotions on to the skin’s surface will not remove or reduce scars.

The DMK Approach to Scar Revision

After a thorough skin diagnosis, a treatment program will be established according to the type of scar tissue, and the clients genetic colouring. Scar revision sometimes requires a combination of the DMK resurfacing procedures.

To revise scarring we must remove and rebuild at the same time. This process creates a restorative effect. DMK utilizes a formulation that dissolves and softens the area just enough to stimulate the re-knitting mechanisms of the tissue. Then we rebuild and repair the area in a smoother, firmer fashion.

By design, DMK’s scar revision treatment encourages the skin to go into a repair phase that enables it to become even and smooth again. The treatment process for scarring, involves a combination of DMK’s unique treatments and special skincare formulations to give you the results you want.

DMK Scar Treatment Options

ENZYME THERAPY – Scars on ageing skin tend to look deeper or more predominant as the skin loosens with age, particularly in the case of ice pick acne scars. Tightening the skin with enzyme treatments gives a progressive lift to the tissues which also smoothes out the appearance of scars as the skin becomes firmer.

ALKALINE WASH – Alkalizing the skin correctly softens skin tissue via cell desquamation, many times creating a mild irritation that forms a light scab. When the scab falls off, the scarred area appears smoother and flatter. DMK’s ALKALINE WASH is highly effective in dissolving and removing old scar material because the treatment REMOVES and REBUILDS at the same time.

Scars are a direct result of our skin’s natural defence system.

If the skin is compromised by laceration, burning or picking, the skin’s defences will immediately begin forming new cells.
Following the occurrence of acne, lacerations or injury, the skin forms new cells. Scars occur when these new cells develop too fast or too slowly.

scar-1

The speed of proliferation of new cells is affected by many factors:

  • Extent of injury
  • Person’s age
  • Person’s health
  • Genetic and racial factors
  • Presence of infection
  • Drug interaction

Scars, whether they’re caused by accident, acne or surgery, are unpredictable. The way a scar develops depends as much on how a client’s body heals as it does on the original injury.

DMK Treatments for Scars and Bruises

Based on over 40 years of experience and the development of their unique concept of Remove, Rebuild, Protect, Maintain, DMK have formulated a range of powerful skin revision treatments that deliver outstanding results for the most difficult skin conditions

DMK ALKALINE WASH

An unusual and highly advanced skin revision treatment that creates an intense alkaline condition on the skin. There are dozens of applications for ALKALINE WASH but it is mainly used in the treatment of rosacea, acne, pigmentation, hair removal with amazing results

DMK ENZYME THERAPY

DMK’s signature skin revision treatment, world renowned for delivering amazing results. ENYZME THERAPY works at cell level to detoxify the skin, flushing away impurities and restoring the skin’s own natural processes enabling it to function as normal healthy skin.

How ALKALINE WASH Works

DMK’s amazing ALKALINE WASH system is a unique formula that takes the pH of the skin to the opposite end of the pH Scale. The ALKALINE WASH has the ability to turn the pH of the skin from 5.6 to a pH of 12 in under three minutes. This action completely softens or desquamates the skin cells.

This dissolving action works on scar tissue, facial hair, razor bumps, acne on male backs and any unwanted hair on any part of the body without the use of harmful acids. Alkaline swells, softens and dissolves skin whereas an acid hardens it, causing skin cells to pop off.

This unique formula does not discriminate as to what kind of dead protein is dissolved so it will dissolve hair as well. This makes it very effective for the removal of unwanted hair on the body or face.

This method is highly effective for the treatment of dark spot pigmentation problems. By alkalizing the spot first, it allows the DMK melanin inhibitors and skin lightening products to work much faster than any other method using acids.

ALKALINE WASH is a highly effective and versatile skin revision method that delivers radical results in a very short time. Many users have found ALKALINE WASH to be a superior tool when treating difficult conditions such as pigmentation, acne, resurfacing scar removal and stretch marks.

DMK ALKALINE WASH Works For:

  • Deep wrinkles and lines
  • Acne
  • Milia

DMK’s unique enzyme skin treatment. ENZYME THERAPY is DMK’s world renowned, signature skin revision treatment designed to rapidly restore the health and natural functioning of your skin enabling it to perform just as it did when it was younger.

DMK’s Enzyme Treatments have a multitude of applications and are used in conjunction with other DMK skin care treatments and products to get the desired results.

Besides age management, other applications for enzyme therapy include treatments for acne, hyperpigmentation, scarring etc.

Why DMK Enzyme Treatments Work

The DMK Enzyme Treatment is the most powerful, effective method for hydrolyzing dead cell material from the skin tissues, detoxifying the skin of all impurities and lifting and tightening it for a firmer, youthful, glowing appearance.
Our enzyme masques are capable of tightening the skin progressively and removing impurities from the skin cells by a process known as reverse osmosis

What is Reverse Osmosis?

Reverse osmosis is a “back-flushing” action that forces fluids through the membrane around the cells, cleaning out all impurities (Lipofuscin) and leaving behind a clean, white substance. Lipofuscin is a free radical substance, created by sun damage or other trauma to the skin.

How DMK ENZYME THERAPY Works

DMK ENZYME THERAPY Treatments act on three very important systems of the body. These are:

  1. The Facial Muscles
  2. The Blood Vessels of the Skin
  3. The Lymphatic System

Rosacea

Rosacea is a vascular skin disorder that is caused by the breakdown of the lymphatic system and the skin’s immune system. Rosacea produces unsightly physical effects and conditions range from mild to very severe, requiring medical attention.

Rosacea is not a condition that will heal by itself. If it is left untreated, the condition will worsen. Early treatment is the key.

The Visible Symptoms of Rosacea:

  • Flushing redness on cheeks, nose, forehead and chin
  • Erythema (redness), inflammationTightness
  • Small blisters, red bumps, pimples
  • Heat weals
  • Watery itchy eyes
  • Bulbous nose, Noticeable pores, baggy cheeks
  • In very severe cases of Rosacea, fibroplasia, distorted facial features etc
  • Sensations include stinging, burning, hot itchy rashes

 

What Causes Rosacea?

Rosacea can affect all segments of the population but more so with people of a fair complexion. Genetic links can be asthma, eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis and rheumatoid arthritis.

There are a variety of triggers that can cause Rosacea to flare up. These include sun exposure, stress, hot beverages like coffee, alcohol and spicy foods. Medications and cosmetics with irritating ingredients and fragrances can also contribute to the condition.

A deficiency of essential fatty acids and an impaired acid mantle (the skin’s protective barrier) are two major causes of Rosacea

For a more in-depth article on Rosacea, read the article entitled Rosacea Reality by Dr. Danné Montague-King.

The DMK Method of Treating Rosacea

For treating rosacea, DMK uses a combination of the ALKALINE WASH Treatment and the world acclaimed, highly effective ENZYME THERAPY Treatment. This combination of treatments reaches the core of the problem and addresses all the contributing factors that cause rosacea.

How DMK Treatments Work to Eliminate Rosacea:

  • Bacterial fighting agents work to kill off causative bacteria and the Dermodex mite
  • Reduces the inflammation, redness and swelling in the skin
  • Re-establishes the skin’s natural defense barrier
  • Enhances the skin’s natural functioning and normalizes internal processes
  • Strengthens the skin’s immune system to fight off further infection and bacteria
  • Strengthens the structure of the skin
  • Repairs and restores cellular integrity of skin tissue
  • Nourishes and moisturizes the skin with a rich supply of nutrients to keep it healthy

 

PLEASE NOTE:

Some symptoms of rosacea such as Rhinophyma cannot be treated by a skin and beauty therapist. Rhinophyma, mostly found in males, is characterized by a large, bulbous swollen nose with enlarged pores and broken capillaries. This condition usually requires special surgery that must be performed by a professional medical specialist.

Anti-Ageing

DMK A-LIFT TREATMENT (Aesthetic Lift)

The World’s Number 1 Non-Surgical Face-Lift

header-a-lift

To reverse the signs of ageing we need to instigate changes within the skin and work on a cellular level. Merely rubbing a compound on the surface of the skin will not reverse the signs of ageing!

DMK’s A-LIFT treatment works by stimulating the underlying structures of the skin. This is achieved by giving the skin its own work-out, similar to how you would tone and tighten the body with exercise.

The DMK MUSCLE BANDING technique is the very technique that is applied in the A-LIFT to tighten and tone the skin.
The mechanism of Enzyme therapy used in the A-LIFT Treatment flushes away harmful toxins from the skin and strengthens the capillaries encouraging a rich supply of nutrients to the skin.

DMK’s world-acclaimed anti-ageing treatments and products are highly effective and deliver excellent results. You can regain your youthful appearance in the most natural way possible without costly cosmetic surgery or BOTOX injections.

ENZYME THERAPY is the best anti-ageing solution because it acts on 3 important systems of the body that are responsible for the normal, healthy functioning of the skin. These are: the facial muscles, the blood vessels and the lymphatic system

ENZYME THERAPY is the best anti-ageing solution because it acts on 3 important systems of the body that are responsible for the normal, healthy functioning of the skin. These are: the facial muscles, the blood vessels and the lymphatic system

What Happens As We Age

Firstly, the production of collagen and elastin slows down considerably. Both of these critical elements give the skin its firmness and elasticity and they are also responsible for giving the skin its structure and support.

When collagen diminishes, the skin begins to sag and lose its bounce. The skin also becomes thinner and more fragile and fine lines and wrinkles begin to set in.

Blood vessels in the skin also become constricted, weak and fragile. Constriction of capillaries means a loss of the supply of nutrients to the skin.

face-9

The result is poor blood circulation and a weakened lymphatic system. The lymphatic system is normally meant to drain away harmful toxins from the blood stream. This weakens the skin’s immune system and its ability to fight off harmful bacteria and repair damage.

Due to a weakened immune system and a lack of protection, the skin becomes more prone to environmental damage. The effects of ageing begin to manifest more rapidly.

Facts About Ageing Skin

Ageing is really a loss of functionality of the skin

Ageing skin requires more nourishment and water to allow the skin’s processes to function optimally

Many current anti-ageing protocols are merely acting at a more superficial level only, failing to address the REAL functioning of skin – here’s where the DMK Concept makes a difference!

Pigmentation

Diagnosis

Pigmentation occurs in two different forms; passive and inflammatory. Inflammatory pigmentation occurs as a result of the activation of our skin’s natural defence mechanisms. Melanin moves up to defend against trauma caused by factors such as sun exposure, poor products or injury.

Passive pigmentation results from an internal imbalance which stimulates the melanin stimulating hormone. These imbalances can be caused by pregnancy, hormonal imbalances, the contraceptive pill and various medications.

danne_pigmentation

Solution

DMK revises pigmentation, brightens and refreshes the skin by removing dead cell build up, the accumulation of melanin (dark patches) and suppresses further melanin production by inhibiting the enzyme tyrosinase in the skin. DMK analyses the individual case of pigmentation and tailors a targeted treatment program.

Acne

DMK Skin clinics offer bespoke skin treatments that are tailored to your skin, using a different combination of DMK products on every skin type.  Nobody’s skin is the same, therefore no treatment will ever be the same.

What is Acne?

Acne is a chronic inflammatory disorder of the sebaceous glands; usually genetic it is characterised by blackheads, whiteheads, macules, papules, pustules and cysts, which often lead to scarring. The first chain of events usually leading to acne, begins during puberty, when the body starts to produce testosterone. This hormone stimulates the sebaceous glands to produce excess sebum which is then trapped in the hair follicle. Dead cells are attached to this sticky substance and bacteria forms. The skin cells cannot exfoliate and a hard mass is produced within the skin.

What is a HYDRADERMAZE Treatment?

HYDRADERMAZE is an advanced skin resurfacing procedure that is specifically designed to clear acne and congested skin
This program is also designed for those who can’t have a DMK PRO ALPHA SIX LAYER PEEL treatmentbut want accelerated results. It is an alternative resurfacing method that does not involve deep peeling of the skin.

HYDRADERMAZE is a weekly or biweekly treatment protocol that is performed over a period of six, eight or twelve weeks depending on skin condition and the desired results.

HYDRADERMAZE Works For a Variety of Skin Conditions

  • Thick or crusty skin due to build-up
