What is the DMK Pro Alpha Six-Layer Peel?
At this time of year you may hear this treatment being talked about quite a bit. Winter being the best season to take on a Peel as we have less sunshine, less heat & can hibernate away so no one can see our skin sliding down our faces, sorry just had to say it. It’s sometimes not be a very pretty picture when you are going through an advance peel procedure. Come on lets be honest….
Now I have had a Pro Alpha Six-Layer Peel many moons ago. I have some picture evidence which I will share with you throughout this blog. I want you to know this was back in 2012 & when I had this treatment we weren’t very hot with the camera so some of the images are not very flattering. I would therefore appreciate it if you didn’t giggle to much haha!!
For me this whole treatment was a challenge but I was so determined to do it as I have seen the results first hand. I must say I was impressed with how amazing my skin looked & felt once it was over. I now feel another 6 layer peel coming on & this time ill take better pictures xx
The DMK Pro Alpha Six-Layer Peel is an effective resurfacing procedure for those seeking substantial results. This professionally applied DMK Professional Skin Revision Treatment is designed to remove dead skin cells and instigate collagen development.
The Pro Alpha Six-Layer Peel is an exclusive blend of natural plant and fruit sugar acids, applied systematically in layers. Contrary to the name of the procedure, we are not removing six layers of skin.
The number of DMK Professional Skin Revision Treatment layers required to be applied is adjusted for your specific needs and desired result. The strength of the formulation is tailored by your therapist to suit your skin colour, texture, sensitivity and condition. The procedure usually takes around 7- 10 days.
Who is it for?
The DMK Pro Alpha Six-Layer Peel is designed to remove the surface epidermal cells of the skin. This DMK Professional Skin Revision Treatment has been designed to be effective in reducing wrinkles, light scarring, and uneven skin tones.
The DMK Professional Skin Revision Treatment is safe for use on most skin types (except people with typically darker complexions and skin tones which can be prone to pigmentation) and will be adjusted in strength to suit your particular skin type and level of sensitivity. However, the results achieved by various individuals can vary, depending on your particular skin type and condition.
What is the procedure?
- It is recommended that you have least four to six DMK Enzyme Therapy sessions before having a Pro Alpha Six-Layer Peel. Your DMK Professional Skin Revision Therapist will also prescribe for you a complete DMK Home Prescriptive program consisting of the products required for use prior to the Pro Alpha Six-Layer Peel commencing. You are required to adhere strictly to this DMK Professional Skin Revision Program. Your DMK Professional Skin Revision Therapist will advise you when you will be required to start preparation for the procedure.
- One week before your scheduled Pro Alpha Six-Layer Peel you will notice that, while using Retosin, your skin may begin to look leathery, darker and aged. This is normal. Your DMK Professional Skin Revision Therapist will advise if you would benefit from using Super Bright in conjunction with Retosin for the treatment of pigmentation/ sun damage.
- On day one of the Pro Alpha Six-Layer Peel, your DMK Professional Skin Revision Therapist will begin applying separate layers of the fruit acid solution. You may experience some uncomfortable stinging and burning sensations during these applications. These sensations will subside. If the irritation becomes too uncomfortable you should advise your DMK Professional Skin Revision Therapist so that the solution can be adjusted for later applications. Your DMK Professional Skin Revision Therapist will provide you with an instruction sheet outlining the steps involved in the procedure.
- After the application is completed, you should ensure the solution stays on your skin (unwashed) for at least 12-hours. Your skin will look shiny and may be slightly red. You may also notice the skin will be tight, tender and may already start to peel.
Beginning the following day;
After the first application of the solution, you can start cleansing your skin as normal with:
DMK cleanser followed by Beta Gel, Direct Delivery Vitamin C and Acu Crème, as prescribed.
You must apply DMK Soleil Defence SPF 50+ if you are going to expose your skin to the sun.
We will also advise you of your recommended dosage of DMK EFA Ultra to assist the process of the Pro Alpha Six-Layer Peel.
You can also start re-using your normal makeup as desired.
Do not use a solarium.
If your skin has started peeling it is imperative you do not pick or pull at the skin.
Your second day of application will then be scheduled.
The skin will have started responding and the solution is then tailored to suit the specific skin conditions being treated. You may feel your skin become quite warm and experience some stinging sensation. This may be a little uncomfortable and these sensations will subside. You will be required to leave the solution on again for up to 12-hours.
By the third day;
You should begin to notice your skin beginning to peel. This will vary from minor flaking to large sections of peeling skin, depending on your skin condition. Regardless of how severe the peeling is, you must not pull, pick, or scratch at the dead lifting skin. Picking or scratching the skin will increase the chance of infection. It is very important that you allow the dead skin to detach naturally.
By the sixth day;
Most of the dead skin will have exfoliated (detached) itself from the healthy new cells below. On this day you will be scheduled for an Enzyme Lift-Off treatment. This Treatment helps remove any remaining dead cells that have not completely exfoliated. On day 12, you will be scheduled for another DMK Enzyme Lift-Off treatment and your DMK Professional Skin Revision Therapist will prescribe the next steps in your DMK Professional Skin Revision Program.
You must use your regular DMK Home Prescriptive products and continue with your professional maintenance DMK Professional Skin Revision Treatments in order to maintain your results.
