  • HOW DO I KNOW WHAT TREATMENT TO BOOK?
    Book a Consultation if you are a first time client. If you are a returning client and do not know what to book next, please text/call the studio.
  • IS IT REALLY NECESSARY TO LIST EVERYTHING ON MY INTAKE FORM?
    100% YES. Why is your profession necessary? It allows me to gauge your sun exposure, physical and mental stress which all effect your skin. Your medications are also super important for me to know so I know what potential side effects could happen and what products to avoid. Pregnancy is also extremely important so we can make sure we use all pregnancy friendly products and ingredients. Please know that any personal information you provide is confidential, even if you haven't told anybody, I still need to know for your safety. Allergies are also included in this, even if you think it doesn’t pertain to your skin please still write it down. Skincare ingredients include a lot more than you may think, as the professional it is my job to know what can be a potential contraindication. Recent injections (botox/filler) I need to know so I do not disturb anything while it is settling in place.
  • DO I NEED TO SCHEDULE A CONSULTATION?
    I do require new clients to schedule a consultation for DMK enzyme therapy. These advanced skin revision treatments require multiple sessions and a professional home care regimen in order to achieve best results.
  • I ALREADY HAVE A PROFESSIONAL HOME CARE REGIMEN, DO I STILL HAVE TO SCHEDULE A CONSULTATION?
    Even if you are on a professional home care regimen, I still require new clients who are wanting to begin skin revision treatments to schedule a consultation with me beforehand to ensure you are on the correct professional homecare products for your skin types and concerns.
  • DO YOU TAKE WALK-INS OR BY APPOINTMENT ONLY?
    I do not take walk-ins. By appointment only – you can text/call or book through my booking app.
  • I HAVE AN EVENT, WHEN SHOULD I GET A FACIAL?
    If you have been in for a treatment before you can get a facial the day before or even the day of but if you are a new client I recommend getting a treatment a week prior.
  • WHAT DO I NEED TO DO BEFORE A FACIAL?
    Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate! Drink plenty of water and avoid alcohol the day before and the day of. Stop exfoliation 3-5 days prior (acids, scrubs + retinol). Men should shave at least 24 hours beforehand to avoid irritation.
  • I HAVE JUST HAD BOTOX/FILLER CAN I STILL COME IN FOR MY APPOINTMENT?
    Any treatments will need to be scheduled at least 10 days after any injectable treatments once the product has settled. LED Light Therapy the day after your injections is a good ideas as this helps heal and repair the skin and reduces any downtime from your injections.

After 24 hours, use a gentle cleanser to cleanse the face for the following 48 hours and gently dry the treated skin. Keep the skin hydrated with a gentle moisturiser. Do not take any inflammatory medicines for at least 2 weeks post treatment. After the initial 24 hours, apply a broad spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreen with a minimum SPF 30 for at least two weeks.

  • HOW MANY ENZYME TREATMENTS DO I NEED?
    Results are noticeable from your first treatment, however a course of 3-8 sessions is recommend. Your first few treatments can be 2-4 weeks apart, then every 30 days until the skin is functioning well. Future follow up treatments can be carried out every 6-12 weeks depending on person. This should always be followed with continued use of the home care prescriptives to prolong results and maintain healthy skin. Using other brands will mean your results may take longer.
  • WHAT SENSATIONS SHOULD I EXPECT DURING ENZYME THERAPY TREATMENTS?
    DMK treatments are very different to traditional facials. Once the DMK enzyme treatment has been applied to your face, neck and décolletage it will start to harden. During the 45 minutes of your treatment, you'll feel a small pulsing sensation – this is the effect of the enzymes at work as they help circulate blood and oxygen through your cells. Over the course of your treatment, the mask will set hard like concrete, and you may feel some downward pressure. The mask will feel tight as it dries & you will notice a pulsating sensation under the skin as your capillaries dilate to bring fresh nutrients and oxygen to your cells. This is called the plasmatic effect - true oxygen therapy from the inside out.
  • ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS WITH THE ENZYME TREATMENTS?
    Redness from the Plasmatic Effect can last around 20 minutes. Other side effects are rare but can include slight redness, irritation or mild itching, temporary hyper-pigmentation and swelling for up to 24 hours. Slight flaking, dryness and peeling may be present for up to 72 hours post treatment.
  • WHAT IS PLASMATIC EFFECT?
    Immediately after your treatment comes off there will be a visible effect called “plasmatic effect”. It kind of looks like you can see the blood running along your veins under your skin. This is an awesome sight to see but don’t worry – it quickly fades. What it means is that at that moment your skin has achieved homeostasis or perfect balance.
  • WHAT IS REVERSE OSMOSIS?
    DMK enzyme therapy creates a “reverse osmosis” action. It is a back flushing action which forces fluid through the membranes around the cells flushing out impurities. It does this by utilizing transfer messenger enzymes. These are cells that communicate with each other, increasing circulation and delivery fresh, oxygenated blood to the skin. You’re left with a clean, clear, healthy environment for cells to thrive and function at an optimal level.
  • IS ENZYME THERAPY SAFE FOR WOMEN WHO ARE PREGNANT?
    Yes, it can be performed throughout your whole pregnancy, helping to maintain hydration and keep your skin's function working optimally.
