NOTES: Take your time building your skin care supply. Skin care doesn't have to be overly complicated or expensive. This starter kit will help you learn the basic fundamental steps of treating the skin. Your DMK Skin Revision Specialist will help you build from this baseline at your pace and budget. We recommend purchasing the full size products for longevity and consistency. Keep in mind, you will deplete your skin care supply at different times so replenishing products will not occur all at once. Plan to replenish (1-2) products per month during your monthly maintenance visit.



The condition of the skin is ever changing therefore your home care percriptives will change over time as well. Your DMK Skin Revision Specialist will make new product recommendation and introduce new protocols as your skin condition improves and new goals are obtained.



Remember, skincare results can vary person to person, so be patient and give the product time to work. It may take several weeks to see noticeable results from a new routine. Consistency is KEY. Execute your Morning & Evening Regime every day to achieve best results.



If you experience any irritation or adverse reaction, discontinue use and contact your esthetician. We may need to introduce serums gradually as we rebuild the skin barrier and avoid overloading the skin.
