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.

The below clip is an excerpt taken from BBC3’s 2012 documentary, DYING FOR CLEAR SKIN.

The documentary follows the journey of those affected by acne, and in particular the drug Roaccutane.

This clip follows Acne sufferer, William, who turned to DMK rather than the anti-acne drug, Roaccutane (which has been linked to severe depression and suicide). 

This is his story.

The follow-on story for William post-documentary can be viewed here: Dying for clear skin: Will’s story

A model and student by day, Melbournite, Saasha Burns, 24, is a one-of-a-kind beauty and a serious contender to take out the Miss Universe Australia crown.

SaashaBurns

q1. Are you enjoying your new dmk regime? Do you have a favourite product?

I couldn’t be happier with my DMK experience and feel so lucky to be receiving these incredible treatments in the lead up to the Miss Universe Australia final! The DMK products and treatments are the first I have come across that treat the skin below the surface. So many products rely on fragrance and texture and only act as a barrier on the skin. There is so much science behind DMK and the unique trans-dermal delivery system is really the first of its kind.
The Biogen C Crème together with the Herb & Mineral mist is transforming my skin, and each day my skin feels tighter, more radiant and more refined.

q2. What was your first dmk treatment experience like? Have you ever had anything like it?

After my first DMK treatment I was on cloud nine! I only wish I had discovered DMK sooner! Skin gives so much away about your health, your age, and your stress levels and I feel like I am always on the pursuit of healthy skin. The DMK enzyme treatment works to exfoliate and remove dead skin cell build-up and when the mask starts tightening and pulsating you can really feel it working!

q3. Do you have any skin concerns?

We are fortunate to live in an age of prevention so I think it is never too early to look after your skin and fight the effects of aging and environmental damage. I don’t always wear sun-block (and I love the outdoors) so I love the light and non-greasy trans-dermal sunscreen for sun protection. It’s perfect underneath makeup, and is a new permanent addition to my routine!

q4. Has using dmk helped/ changed your skin?

The results are amazing! The texture of my skin has improved and my skin feels so soft and hydrated throughout the day. People have commented on the bright appearance of my skin, and I don’t feel the need to wear foundation. I’m so excited to see such quick results!

q5. How has the miss universe Australia experience helped you grow as a person?

The competition is such an incredible journey of growth and change. It can be very hard at times putting so much of ‘you’ out there, but it is such a wonderful chance to show what qualities make us unique as young women. It has helped me to become strong, confident, more independent, compassionate and socially aware. It is such a positive journey and really brings out the best in you as a person.

q6. What would it mean to you to become miss universe Australia?

It would be life changing! I love that life never stops surprising me and you never know what is around the corner. I have learnt that the harder you work, the luckier you seem to get. I believe it is important to achieve your dreams with integrity and honesty, and to become Miss Universe Australia would give me a platform to voice my opinions, help others and become a positive role model for young women. I would love to work closely with Operation Smile and create awareness for the wonderful work they do for children.
