I LOVE a good facial, it’s definitely my number one favourite pamper treatment. I find facials relaxing and love the feeling of my skin working & glowing as a result. It was my first time using DMK products and I had never heard of Enzyme treatment before. I was intrigued and excited to meet Simona (founder of Skin Aspirations) and hear more about it and try the Enzyme masque she so highly recommended
Skin Aspirations has recently launched with a therapy room in the heart of Chelsea. From the first moment I walked through the door, everything felt right. Simona is a young and bright professional therapist with a glowing smile (and skin) who immediately put me at ease. Before the treatment could start, I was given personal and medical forms to fill in whilst Simona explained more about the DMK products that she uses.
“The origin of most skin conditions is a result of disharmony in the skin. Using the principles of biochemistry, DMK has formulated a range of treatments and products that encourage your skin to perform like youthful, healthy skin. By matching formulations with the body’s chemistry, the skin is encouraged to respond in a positive manner. DMK’s revolutionary 4 stage concept of REMOVE, REBUILD, PROTECT, MAINTAIN, matches an individual’s biochemistry with the appropriate skin therapy”.
Simona professionally guided me through each step of the treatment but also let me relax and enjoy the treatment with soft meditation and calming music in the background. Her passion for what she does came across immediately and I was able to relax to the full around her.
below a list of products and their functions that were used during the 90-minute facial.
- Deep Pore Pure – to cleanse the skin
- Desquamate – a gentle exfoliator to loosen and remove dead skin cells.
- Sebum Soak – to soften the hardened sebum plugs in the pores which prepares the skin for extractions.
Each of the above steps were very pleasant. What Simona did, that I never seen before, was to apply cling film on my face each time she applied a cleanser, toner or cream. On top of the film she put a warm towel for few moments. She explained how this would help the product penetrate the skin it a much quicker and effective way rather than just sitting on my skin before being removed. I must admit the cling film felt a little strange to start but with the warm towel on top it was lovely.
- Enzyme masque #1 – the signature DMK product which enhances your skins capacity to function optimally.
About enzyme therapy:
DMK is the only company in the world to utilize the beneficial effects of transfer messenger enzymes. Enzymes are living substances that regulate health and work with certain minerals in the body to form a natural system of antioxidants that fight corrosive free radicals. Properly formulated, they can remove dead protein, toxins and other effluvia from the epidermis using a process called ‘reverse osmosis’. Where some cosmetic facial treatments may only act on the surface of the skin, DMK Enzyme Treatments works with the skin. The enzymes strengthen the structural integrity of the skin to create a healthy environment for cells to live and thrive in”.
The Enzyme Masque (as part of the Enzyme Treatment) was like nothing I had ever tried before. Simona had explained how I would have felt the mask getting harder and possibly tingling but WOW, this was just something else.
As soon as Simona applied the masque everything felt normal but it was not long until I started feeling the masque working its magic. My skin felt tight, as if the mask was strongly holding on to my face. I felt pulling and tightening almost aggressively. Since it was the first time and I wasn’t expecting something this strong, it wasn’t as relaxing as the facials I am normally used to BUT once I got used to the feeling, I dazed off for half an hour out of the 45 minutes the mask had to be on for. Before Simona removed the masque, I touched my face and It felt like stone, how was this going to come off? She gently used warm water and with a brush massaged my face to remove everything. My skin immediately felt fresh and ‘alive’.
As soon as I looked at myself in the mirror I was a little shocked by the redness of my skin but at the same time I felt like new. Simona reassured me this was normal and actually a good sign that the mask has worked perfectly. She went on to explain in more details this was known as the “Plasmatic Effect” which happens when newly oxygenated blood rushes from the skin to the capillaries (which had been dilated from the mask). The Plasmatic effect made me look pretty scary, and very red but at the same time, I felt as though my face and skin were “alive” and had just been boosted to the maximum.
After the mask, Simona carried on the treatment with the following products and steps.
- Pore Reduction drops – to visibly reduce the appearance of open pores.
- Melanotech drops – acts as a skin brightener by inhibiting melanin.
- Beta gel – to address reactive, irritated or inflamed skin.
- Direct delivery Vitamin C serum – key vitamin for the production of collagen which gives skin its firmness.
- Eye tone serum – to treat fine lines as well as dark circles or puffy skin under the eyes.
- Herb and Mineral Mist – it helps the oils and crème to penetrate deeper into the skin.
- Herbal Pigment oil – helps to smooth and brighten the skin.
- Contraderm crème – is a soothing, anti-inflammatory and anti-irritant crème.
- SPF sunscreen
By the time I left, the redness has calmed and within half an hour my skin color was back to normal. My skin felt tight and smoother than ever and I was very happy with the results even the following days. My skin didn’t look too different than before but it felt smoother. Simona told me that because my skin didn’t have particular issues or needs before the treatment this would have ‘just’ been a nourishing boost but the treatment is incredible for a wide range of conditions such as aging skin, sun damage, acne, rosacea and pigmentation.
