aminodine is our remarkable anti-ageing formulation designed for diabetic clients and smokers, with noticeable cross-line wrinkles!

This product contains aminoguanadine, often referred to as ‘the golden water’, which aids in slowing down the wrinkling process; and freshening the pallid, grey skins of heavy smokers.

Its aim is to act against cross-linked wrinkles in mature, middle-aged and sun-damaged skins; and when used in conjunction with night firming crème, offer radiance and firmness for mature skin also!

However it’s not an option for younger clients who wish to prevent Glycosylation!

The formulation contains:

• Aminoguanadine – An anti-oxidant and glucose activator. It helps to inhibit Glycosylation in ageing skin: the precursor to deep cross-linked wrinkles!

• Witch Hazel – To help soothe and give relief to irritated and inflamed skin conditions. It also contains antiseptic properties.

• Cucumber Oil – A soothing agent that helps reduce puffiness. It’s rich in nutrients and vitamin C, which means it’s a great help to improve elasticity!

How it works?

The spritz soaks into the skin, assisting to re-activate glucose and normalise the free radical effect of Glycation: which acts to prevent the incidence of cross-linked wrinkles in ageing skin.

You may just notice your skin is firmer, with a fresh pinky colour, within a few short weeks!

How we found it?

This formulation creation was no accident. Our researchers observed that formulating certain ingredients into a spray application, helped to maximise the efficiency and efficacy of the delivery!

Their design was based on a fine water-based mist, to imitate the action of the skin’s own glands.

And as we say time and time again at DMK: the aim is to replicate the body’s ability to regenerate itself naturally.

Try this combo for mature skin…

Using the following products morning and night!
direct delivery vitamin c, beta gel, seba-e, nite firming crème, eye tone or fine line crème, aminodine and DMK efa plus!

Remember!
On very thickset, heavy wrinkles we recommend our DMK Skin Revision Treatments, including Enzyme Therapy Treatments and the Pro Alpha Six-layer Peel.

Did you know that Glycosylation is possibly the single biggest contributor to cross-linked wrinkles?

As we age the storage of excess sugars in the body shift to the connective tissues of the skin. These excess sugars pool around healthy skin cells and crystallise, causing a weight on the collagen thus reducing elasticity and normal cell proliferation.

The skin then starts to collapse into deep folds and wrinkles, and thus creates the condition known as Glycosylation; often refereed to as the ‘sugaring’ effect of the cells.

This is because excess glucose undergoes a chemical change to become the not-so-becoming glycosyl: a free radical!

So there you have it… the two main contributors of cross-linkage wrinkling and ageing skin: free radicals and Glycosylation!

There is hope though, to be revealed in blogs to come….

DMK Enzyme Treatments are sophisticated, and exclusive. And created by our very own Danné Montague King: a leading Beverly Hills Botanical Scientist, Cosmetic Chemist and Skin Specialist.

Our range of treatments and products are created with plant-based ingredients, which work in harmony with the skin’s natural chemistry. We believe that working with the skin, rather than merely acting on the skin’s surface, obtains talked-about results!

An excessive build up of dead cell tissues, combined with poor skin functioning, is what contributes to wrinkles, fine lines, premature aging, pigmentation, blackheads, and breakouts!

That’s where Enzyme Therapy comes in, to effectively:

• Hydrolyse dead redundant cell build up
• Alleviate debris and impurities, leaving a clear healthy smooth complexion
• Increased cellular activity for superior skin nourishment
• Supreme oxygenation for tissue regeneration
• Anti oxidants to fight and combat free radical damage
• Encourages your own skin to form new collagen
• Provides renewed elastin activity for tighter, firmer, skin.

Enzymes allow for unique treatments, which match the individual’s body chemistry, regardless of ethnic background, gender, age, or skin condition!

Optimal skin functioning is the key to slowing the aging process and correcting skin conditions naturally.

Once you have experienced Enzyme Therapy you won’t settle for anything less!

Posted in Anti Ageing, Education, Transdermal Delivery

Debbie Dickson, DMKs Director of Education explains…

DMK has been specialising in transdermal delivery of skin care products for over 40 years.

In this day and age the competition is fierce in terms of skin care. There is an endless supply of so called ‘miracle’ products and avant-garde ingredients; therefore it is wise for the skin practitioner and physician to be aware of the importance of constant research. Education is essential to decipher intelligent conclusions regarding the latest product waves flooding the market.

Many new trends are designed with the discovery of new herb-plant extracts, vitamins and antioxidants. Good examples of this would be the Aloe Vera and Retinal-A craze of the 1980’s, and the Alpha Hydroxy Acid rage of the early 90’s. It is imperative that practitioners consider all products and ingredients no matter how miraculous they sound as there is no single ingredient, product or machine that will alleviate all the signs of ageing or skin disease.
Researching new ingredients will enable the practitioner to refine their skills in diagnosing skin problems.

The medical and aesthetics world have drawn closer together in this last decade, with physicians and therapists working harmoniously. However, there are boundaries that must be professionally established as to the claims that can be made by practitioners other than physicians.

Let’s take things one step further. Have you ever wondered if these so called miracle active ingredients are actually getting to the target area? Or are they merely sitting on the surface of the skin?

It is the effective delivery system of any skin care product that is of greatest importance.

Danné Montague-King, founder of the DMK Paramedical Skin Revision System, has used his unique transdermal delivery system in all of his DMK Treatments and Home Prescriptive products – for over forty years.

What is transdermal delivery?

The word ‘transdermal’ literally means ‘across the dermis’. Another term we use to describe the transdermal delivery system is ‘transepidermal’. This denotes a product settling into the voids of the skin through many chemical and enzymatic actions.

Active transdermal technologies include:
• Iontophoresis (using low voltage electrical currents to drive charged ingredients through the skin)
• Electroportation (uses short electrical pulses of high voltage to create transient aqueous pores in the skin)
• Snophoresis (uses low frequency ultrasonic energy to disrupt the stratum corneum)
• Thermal energy (uses heat to make the skin more permeable and increases the energy of the drug molecules).

We are ever searching for newer chemical permeation enhancers all the time —especially those which aim to enhance the solubility of the diffusing ingredients in the skin. And we encourage our practitioners to seek out knowledge regarding ingredients and what they do, we must emphasize that DMK formulations are very complex and these require precise and advanced manufacturing techniques.

Products that claim to contain active, near-miracle ingredients are not necessarily manufactured with a transdermal base. This means that these products cannot deliver ingredients into the epidermis properly.

After all, there is a certain formula in which active ingredients work in synergism with the skin. Many products may have less than what is required to cause any affect.

The success is in the delivery; 40 years, 32 countries; rebuilding skin and rebuilding lives.

After her trip with Danné in sunny Beverley Hills, the beauty queen cum medical student flew to Peru to take part in Operation Smile; a warm not for profit organisation helping hundreds of children and young adults born with facial deformities, in developing countries.

Did you know that every three minutes, a child is born somewhere in the world with a cleft lip or palate? Sadly one in ten die before their first birthday!
This staggering statistic spurred Olivia to assist with this mission, and share with us her trip…

This is the first day of screening with Operation Smile. Tragic having to turn down some patients who had travelled over 1000km by bus and walking, to be seen! However so far 190 patients have been screened, and 119 scheduled for surgery in the coming days!

1

Me with Dr. Mauricio from Colombia assessing and diagnosing cleft lips, palates, nasal deformities & fistulas to determine whether we can help!2

Scheduling Operation Rooms is a tough job and very important as there are a number of requirements – unfortunately not all the kids who are eligible for surgery can be scheduled 3

Screening is a long, long day so kids (both potential patients and siblings) need to be entertained!

4

This 10-day-old baby with a bilateral cleft lip and palate travelled over 1000 km to be screened for surgery, but we are unable to operate on infants under 6 months old. Luckily if she returns next year Operation Smile will definitely be able to help her!!

5

Unfortunately if the cases are complicated or require multiple surgeries and intensive postoperative care, then we can’t take them, as the mission can only provide care while we are in town.

If you would like to be involved with Operation Smile, simply visit http://australia.operationsmile.org for more information!

The amazing Olivia Wells, Miss Universe Australia 2013 has just returned from three weeks in the America’s, with a warm heart!

On touch down in Los Angeles, she visited our very own Danné, who invited her to stay in his Beverley Hills home.

‘I spent three days with Danné, who is so much more than just a sponsor. DMK is like a little family, and to be invited into his home to stay was very comforting’ said the beauty queen.

Olivia was Danne’s self-proclaimed ‘guinea pig’ on some new exciting formulations that Olivia ‘instantly fell in love with!’

‘A “wetter than water” TransGenesis™ spray and also a neck cream. I absolutely CANNOT GET ENOUGH OF THAT MAGIC CREAM’. She said without letting the cat out of the bag!

She furthered her excitement by saying ‘I don’t even have jowls, and it has made an instantaneous and noticeable difference!!’

Although she was travelling alone, she had time to catch up with her ‘Miss Universe rookie, Miss USA Erin Brady in LA!’

And what Olivia got up to next is another chapter we will share with you later in the week! We can say that it will put a big smile on your face…

This is one of our favourite letters; we wanted to share with you, about the amazing TransGenesis™ from one of our devoted and loyal DMK fans!

‘Despite my pathetic skepticism, I tool a jar home the day we received it. As I opened my royal box, I was immediately excited!! I loved the luscious packaging, I loved the words of wisdom written inside this magical box, I loved that Danné was choosing to donate a portion of the sales to the Harvey Milk Foundation. I was desperate to get this luxurious cream on my face………

I popped the cream on, following my usual regime of cleaning, serums, fractionated oil; and massaged it in with the herb & mineral mist….Yep, feels nice……………

I did a final bathroom run before retiring to bed for the evening and stopped in my tracks as I saw my reflection in the mirror.

I moved a little closer to look in more detail at my skin. Surely one application of this cream could not have an immediate impact?

My skin appeared luminous, bright, plump…. my lips look perfectly pink and lush… I was glowing. Or, as my skeptical mind kicked in… was it all just wishful thinking???

I went to bed, and I must admit I continued to think about what I just saw in the mirror. I was really hoping it was too good to be true!

The next morning I jumped outa bed, the usual morning routine bustling around. I remember thinking my face felt tight.

It wasn’t until I went into the bathroom that I remembered my new royal cream. And WOW!! At this point I simply new it was not just wishful thinking.

My skin (which I must admit is rather good from years of enzyme therapy and DMK Home Prescriptives) looked AMAZING…yep, AMAZING…. Plump, Bright, Clear, Firm, Hydrated.

All this from one night of slumber and the new cream! I eagerly applied it again and raced into work to order more. I knew stocks we limited and new immediately we were going to sell out of the stock we had FAST…

TransGenesis™ is fabulous for the neck. The next day I took particular notice of the lines on my neck, the lines that I thought I had grown into and would be with me forever more. I couldn’t quite believe my eyes; these lines were disappearing before my eyes.

Day 3 and the lines on my neck are gone….

As you can imagine, as a salon owner and therapist who wants to provide my clients with the best-of-the-best, I am thrilled!!’

We can’t stop ageing entirely, but we can take the very best care of ourselves. We’ve come up with a fairy easy equation to understand how to best take care of your skin.

How well you take care of yourself – environmental damage = your genetic potential!

Screen Shot 2014-05-06 at 9.36.20 AM

DO:

  • Always, always, always wear SPF sunscreen + a hat!
  • Eat an alkaline diet, taking in all the colours of the rainbow via fruits and vegetables
  • Swallow DMK EFA plus daily for skin to retain its turgidity and bounce
  • Add antioxidant Resveratrol to your daily supplements!
  • Vitamin A. Use it topically at night to keep your skin performing at its best
  • Use DMK skincare regime religiously, both morning and night. DMK gets its active ingredients to the skin’s core, to positively influence the lifecycle of the skin.
  • Get your sleep! 8 hours will do wonders for your skin (not to mention your happiness.)
  • Protect yourself from UV exposure
  • Say no to stress! Try meditation.
  • Enjoy life…

DON’T:

  • Use inferior skin products with cheap fillers and nasty ingredients
  • Miss regular treatments – stick to them. With new skin cells turnover every 28 days, it’s important to nurture the new!
  • Smoke or drink to excess. It’s just not compatible with youthful glowing skin
  • Say no to sugar! Too much of it creates deep wrinkling in the skin, known as Glycation
  • Forget the power of vitamin C, both internally and externally, for youthful looks!
  • Sleep in your make up! It can cause congestion. Plus it looks messy on your pillow…
