02 Oct What is Enzyme Therapy?
Celebrities, models and beauty professionals swear by it – DMK enzyme therapy is the rapidly spreading secret for healthier, clearer, firmer, smoother and more youthful-looking skin. It’s also probably not something you have seen before or experienced.
Exclusively offered through DMK, a research-driven skincare company, enzyme therapy works with your body to detoxify your skin and then use your lymphatic system to drain away the waste. Not sure what your lymphatic system is? Well, it has a few roles, but, in terms of enzyme therapy you can think of it as your immune system’s transport and filtering network.
The result is that enzyme therapy doesn’t just work on your skin, it works inside your skin. Let’s take a closer look at how it all happens.
How does enzyme treatment work?
An enzyme therapy session is a multi-step process. First, your skincare specialist will use a unique ionising cleanser that vaporises dead skin, toxins and contaminants on the surface of your skin. It sometimes doesn’t smell great for some people, this is when the volatile toxins are being removed. Despite the surprising chemistry that can lead to the unusual aroma, the cleanser isn’t painful and doesn’t irritate your skin in any way and rather brightens your complexion.
After the vaporising cleanser has done its work, the enzyme mask can be applied. This involves painting a layer of special proteins (the enzymes themselves) onto your face and neck.
These then ‘metabolise’ at a molecular level the rest of the toxins the cleanser drew out of your skin. You can almost think of it as an approach that gets the results of a peel – without the peeling. What you will feel instead is an odd tightening sensation as the enzyme layer is left on your skin for around 45 minutes.
This phase also brings in the most confronting, though still entirely painless, part of enzyme treatment. It is called the plasmatic effect. Essentially, as the enzyme mask fully dilates all your capillaries they flood with richly oxygenated blood which is flushing out your skin. These minor blood vessels are usually invisible, but for several minutes during and after the treatment they will stand out like a web of red lightning wherever the mask was applied. While it looks startling, the effect is painless and fades rapidly. For the day post-treatment it is common for your skin to feel dry, but then around day 3 you will see and experience the full effects of less redness, more volume, even tone and incredible softness.
How often will I need a treatment?
Your skin has a natural growth and renewal cycle. In this continual process, it takes about 3 to 4 weeks for old skins cells to be shed and replaced with the new ones that are always being produced in the lowest part of the epidermis. Because of this natural life cycle, it is suggested to do the enzyme treatments regularly, and in some cases as close as a week apart especially if you have been prescribed a more advanced treatment program. This works with your body to keep you skin clear and toned throughout the full skin cell life cycle. Further, as your first few enzyme therapy sessions will also deeply exfoliate your skin, it means subsequent sessions will penetrate more deeply and give you compounding improvements to skin tone and youthfulness.
DMK is currently the only company in the world using transfer messenger enzymes to improve skin condition. While some cosmetic facial treatments may only act on the surface of the skin, DMK works at a cellular level.
What does enzyme therapy treat?
A DMK enzyme therapy is not one of those procedures that’s more about feeling good than actual results. This is a scientifically based approach and gives real long term effects. Suitable for both men and women and sensitive skin types, enzyme therapy can address:
● signs of ageing
● sagging of skin
● wrinkles and fine lines
● uneven pigmentation
● acne, blackheads and breakouts
● dark circles and puffy eyes
● sun damage
● congested skin.
● reactive/sensitive skin
Unlike many other approaches, the end goal of DMK enzyme therapy is not actually to get your skin looking better on the surface. It is rather to improve the function and health of your skin – your body’s largest organ. Of course, by aiding skin health, the result is skin that looks better and healthier too.
