Updated: Sep 12, 2023

Congratulations on taking the exciting step towards your first DMK Enzyme Facial Treatment!


We're thrilled that you've chosen to experience the rejuvenating benefits of this treatment.

We look forward to helping you achieve your skincare goals.

Here's to a refreshing and revitalizing journey to radiant, healthy and blessed skin.



POST TREATMENT HOME CARE PERSCRIPTIVE: for Pigment Balancing


After receiving a customized DMK Enzyme Facial Treatment, it's essential to follow specific post-treatment care instructions to maximize the benefits and maintain your skin's health.


Your DMK Skin Revision Treatment Kit provides a 20 - 30 day supply of DMK Skin Care Home Precriptives. The Pigment Balancing Kit addresses passive and inflammatory pigmentation with this selection of innovation products that rapidly reduce inflammation and suppress melanin production over time.



MORNING ROUTINE ✨☀️


Step 1: Cleanse with Deep Pore Pure Facial Cleanser 🌿

Wet your face with lukewarm water. Apply a small amount of Deep Pore Cleanser to your fingertips and gently massage it onto your face and neck in circular motions working up and out. Rinse thoroughly with warm water and pat your face dry. You can use morning and night without stripping the skin.



These should typically be applied first to clean, dry skin. Tey are designed to address pigment concerns, so you want them to be in direct contact with your skin. Apply a small amount directly to the areas where you have pigmentation concerns.


Step 3: Water Based Serums 💦 (NOT included in Pigment Kit, Available for purchase a la carte)

Deliver targeted nutrients and antioxidants to your skin with a lightweight serum. Choose one that addresses your specific concerns, whether it's hydration, brightening, nourishing, soothing or firming. Layer multiple serums for deeper penetration.


First Serum: 💧Beta Gel by DMK (NOT included in Pigment Kit, Available for purchase a la carte)

Beta Gel is known for its soothing and hydrating properties, making it an excellent choice for calming sensitive or irritated skin.


After allowing Melanotech Drops to absorb (usually after a minute or two) Apply Beta Gel as your first serum layer. This will help soothe and hydrate your skin. Apply a few drops and gently press it into your skin, focusing on face and neck. Allow serum to absorb before applying the next serum.


Second Serum: 💧💧 Direct Delivery Vitamin C Antioxicedent Serum (NOT included in Pigment Kit)

Direct Delivery C Serum contains a high concentration of vitamin C, which is known for its brightening, antioxidant, and anti-aging properties. It helps improve skin texture, reduce hyperpigmentation, and promote collagen production.


Apply a few drops and gently press it into your skin, focusing on face and neck.


Also consider starting with Super Serum by DMK which is a combination of Direct Delivery Vitamin C and Beta Gel. Keep in mind these two products serve different purposes and have different formulations. Mixed together may reduce their effectiveness at targeting your specific skin concerns.


Ultimately, the choice between DMK Super Serum, Beta Gel, and Direct Delivery C Serum depends on your skincare goals and budget. Layering Beta Gel and Direct Delivery C Serum separately will be more beneficial and provided faster results.



Step 4: Moisturize 🔒 with Herb & Mineral Mist & Seba E Hydrating Oil (Oil Based Serum) Lock in water based serum hydration and nutrition with the power of Herb & Minerals and Seba E.


Seba-E and Herb & Mineral Mist work to mimic the skins acid mantle by supporting the natural lipid barrier, maintaining hydration, and helping to balance the skin's pH. Seba E is a specialized oil based serum designed to help balance oil production and moisturize the skin without clogging pores. Herb & Mineral Mist is designed micic your natural sweat glands to hydrate and soothe the skin. A well-hydrated skin barrier is essential for the acid mantle's proper function. First Spray Herb & Mineral Mist onto your face and neck. Hold the bottle about 6-8 inches away and mist evenly. Avoid spraying directly into your eyes. While your face is still damp (the dampness well help hydrating oil penetrate more effectively) dispense a small about of Seba E Oil onto your fingertips. Gently massage Seba E into your skin using upward and outward motions. Focus on areas where you may have excess oil or require additional hydration. Allow Seba E to absorb fully before proceeding to SPF step. For asian and darker skin tones; we recommend leveling up to Herbal Pigment Oil once your Seba E supply is depleted. Herbal Pigment Oil can improve scars, moisturize lips, be massaged into nail cuticles at night and can reduce the appearance dark under eye circles when mixed with Direct Delivery C Serum around the eyes.

EVENING ROUTINE 🌙

The skin goes through a natural repair and regeneration process at night, know as the circadian rhythm. This is when cell turnover and collagen production tend to be more active. Using deeper more penetrating active ingredients at night can leverage this natural process and maximize their effectiveness.

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.


Remember, 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 set.


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.
