Although skin is touted as “the largest organ of the body” the fascia, which underlays the skin directly and is also wrapped around every organ of the body, is much larger and often ignored.  The fascia is the philosophy of the body, meaning it connects every organ to another organ. It has nerve fibrils embedded throughout and if not properly addressed during healing from injury to the skin and or muscle, can exacerbate chronic pain. The healing of the fascia also determine the successful remodeling of scar tissue and determines the type of scar IE: keloid, hypertrophic, cuneiform or flat linear. DMK treatments address the fascia and all of its functions.

We had a fabulous week in New York City for our Media Tour. One of our clients this week was Sonja Morgan, Star of Housewives of New York. She walked into our DMK Spa Suite at the venerable London Hotel New York and I immediately thought “thoroughbred.”

She had no make-up on, green deck chair paint under her nails and splotched elsewhere from a paint fest at her swank New York Town House and eyes like twin lasers taking in everything including me!

For many years I have been campaigning to get this insidious drug removed and more and more doctors are joining the mission.

But we have to use common sense when confronted by a client who has been on the drug for a year or more and not be over cautious when conducting their DMK treatments, although when in doubt it is always better to error on the side of caution!

Why are many Accutane users scar prone?

After months of use, the enzyme collagenase becomes compromised. This little enzyme determines how many new collagen fiber bundles arrive at the surface of a breeched epidermis in a normal rhythm of proliferation.

A letter by Aliesh Pierce, DMK National Education Director

I have had the pleasure of being a guest speaker at three annual conferences of the American Association of Cosmetology Schools’ Annual CEA Conference (Career Educator’s Alliance). Let me tell you, these educators are committed to their craft. I am overjoyed each time I am extended the offer to speak. I revel in the opportunity to spend a few days with like-minded individuals who know how important a solid education is to a successful career in esthetics. They regularly attend industry related workshops and classes so that they can always offer their students something fresh and new.

We can peel skin off by layers. The more layers removed, the younger looking the skin.  It is also important to find out from the skin therapist  or doctor how many layers they are removing during any peel treatment.

*False – The skin is not like an onion where layers can be peeled off and “voila…new skin.” In fact, skin has only two basic layers, the epidermis  and everything else underneath.  Cells are always proliferating, changing configurations and migrating to the surface forming our corneum  which is the outermost part of the epidermis.  It is the REDUNDANT dead cell material that needs to be exfoliated at different levels and de-conjested. Anything else more aggressive will create trauma in the skin.  The auto-immune functions will work over time in defensive response  and the skin will ultimately break down or suffer other contraindications.
