Acne Treatment

Effectively cleans out blocked follicles and balances the skin for ultimate healing. Includes pre-exfoliation, enzyme  therapy, Dermafield set on acne and Beta Gel Infusion.

A series of acne treatments is generally necessary for all clients with acne; the treatment will be assessed and treated to each of their specific needs.

There are many different forms of acne, from surface pimples to deep congestion or inflamed acne. Some acne is also associated with hyper-pigmentation (brown) or cuniform (pitted) scarring.

A combination of different methods are used:

  • Quick Peel 1 or 2 for the healing of superficial pimples
  • Prozyme for thickened congested skin
  • Prozyme and Pro Alpha treatment combined for thickened and deeply congested skin conditions
  • Alkaline for thickened, inflamed and congested acne
  • Dermatox to detoxify all of the above conditions
  • Enzyme therapy is always utilised with the above pre exfoliation methods
  • Electromagnetic therapy and Low Level Lazer for fast healing
  • Infusion of active ingredients such as Beta Gel to boost the immune cells, will complete all treatments.

Hormonal imbalances are a common cause of acne. Whether you are a teenager or suffering from adult acne, everyone experiencing acne will have an individual cause. It is often related to bacteria or parasites that live in the gut. Common causes can be due to diet, stress, sadness or the use of harmful products not recognised by the skin’s chemistry. Over exfoliating is another major cause of skin imbalance. The overuse of granular exfoliants, harsh peels and alpha-hydroxy acids can lead to the over production of oil and skin cells, which will cause blockages in the follicle.

We have solutions to all theses conditions.

What is acne?
Acne is a devastating disease affecting teenagers and adults. 80% of teenagers have some form of acne. Sometimes acne can cause severe scars that may be permanent. It is often caused by a build up of dead skin cells and natural oil that stick together and block the pores. The acne bacteria feed off this mixture which then becomes inflamed.

Acne comes in two basic types and varies in severity from individual to individual.
1. An inflamed condition normally associated with soreness, redness, swelling, pus formation, etc.
2. A non-inflamed condition usually accompanied with whiteheads or blackheads.

What factors have a tendency to aggravate acne?
One or more of the factors listed below could either cause adverse reactions, contraindications or be delaying relief of acne conditions
• Lifestyle - Inadequate sleep or drug and alcohol use.
• Stress - Physical, emotional or job related.
• Climate - Humidity induces skin cell and skin pore secretions.
• Physical contact - touching the affected area or wearing hats, headbands, etc.
• Diet - Foods high in iodine (processed foods, salty snacks, etc). A well balanced diet is recommended.
• Hormonal fluctuations - Birth control pills, pregnancy or seasonal changes.
• Cosmetics - Improper use or the wrong choice of products.

Why doesn’t simply cleansing my face with an appropriate cleanser twice a day clear up my blackhead acne conditions?
Since the blackhead is formed below the surface of the skin, it cannot be treated by surface cleansing products. Only products that are specifically designed to penetrate into the follicle and loosen the impactions will be successful in alleviating this acne condition.

How can I control my acne?
With continued use of DMK Home Prescriptives and regular corrective in-salon treatment you may expect results in approximately two months.

What will I experience during a professional in-salon treatment?
Initially, you will be asked to complete a thorough questionnaire. Your paramedical technician will design an individual corrective treatment program by conducting a full skin analysis and combining the information from that analysis with the information provided in the questionnaire.

The treatment will include:
• Removal of redundant cuticle build up and debris from the skin
• Procedures for the release and removal of impaction and infection reduction
• Application of products for the purpose of acne healing and controlling additives
• Enzyme treatment for the purpose of improving skin function and to flush and expel toxins and rebuild stronger, healthier tissue.
• Application of hydrating gel and lymph drainage.

These treatments can be performed on the face or the body.
Each treatment is very private and relaxing, and is intended to bring you a step closer to having clear skin.
During your In-salon treatment your therapist will use DMK alkaline wash to facilitate the treatment of your acne alkaline wash is intended to abort the surface epidermal cells of the skin, dissolve hair, soften tissue and assist in excreting dead and dying cells. The series of treatments prescribed by a qualified technician gives a similar effect as a chemical peel without the trauma of a controlled burn or the uncomfortable convalescence required by conventional medical peels.

Are there any side effects?
The treatment is usually pain free. However in some cases, usually after the initial treatment before the skin has adjusted to alkaline, you may experience some redness or dryness. You may even have some very superficial scabs caused be the necessity to leave the alkaline wash solution on the skin for longer duration than most cases. As long as you do not scratch or pick the superficial scabs, they will heal given normal conditions. As with any product applied topically, there may be small percentages of people in the population that may experience an adverse reaction. AIkaline wash is safe for most skin categories and races and is recommended for treating light acne scar conditions, fine wrinkles, folliculitis, pigmentation treatments and hair removal. Results may vary from person to person. While an alkaline wash treatment should give a definite improvement and lead to restoration of health to your skin, topical chemistry, like surgery, does not guarantee a 100% outcome and is not an exact science. Therefore your skin therapist performing this procedure cannot guarantee the exact results or a time frame in which optimum results may be achieved. The technician can only offer testimony to past cases including any before and after photos.

While alkaline wash is usually accompanied by minimum discomfort provided you follow the home prescriptives given to you by your DMK paramedical technician faithfully, you may experience the following:
• Redness and a slight sandpaper effect on the skin
• Peeling proceeded by a crusty hardness to the skins surface
• Irritation around the eyes and the mouth area and sometimes on the chin
• An outbreak of pimples or gases and other impurities that were already present in the skin
• A slight burning sensation or “sunburn” sensation in the early stages of the treatment
• An irritated, open lesion that may weep and then scab and heal normally (requires antibiotic gel or other treatment as prescribed by a physician or as recommended by the technician).

After care instructions
• Only use DMK skin care products on the treated area as prescribed by your paramedical technician. Other products may adversely affect the outcome.
• Do not sunbathe or use a solarium for 24 hours. Use of a solarium is not recommended by DMK. Apply DMK transdermal sunblock on the treated area
• Use DMK beta gel at home
• If redness occurs, apply ice or natural yoghurt
