DANNÉ MONTAGUE-KING CONCEPT OF HISTOLOGY

Pre and post cosmetic surgery

Basically the concept and philosophy our International team goes  by is more important than products being used although our formulas are of course tools with which to practice the concept effectively.

The concept being, that the cells of human skin do not positively react to any chemical(s) they do not recognize.  The cells of the skin will react in a positive and correct manner when confronted with similar chemistry to that which they manufacture on their own naturally.  For any positive result a chemical ionization has to take place.

In many cases actions evoked by opposite and equal reactions are necessary with the temporary contra-indications of erythema, weeping and even scabbing.  However even these reactions are considered desirable in cases of radical skin revision of sun damaged or post acne skin.

Most traumas of the skin stimulate the three main defense mechanisms; Excess cuticle build up of redundant epithelial cells, excess melanocyte activity and excess dehydration from over-stimulation of the secretive glands and finally the bilayer moisture levels.  Many traumas come from a violent reaction of the skin receptors due to aggressive outside forces i.e. chemical, photo damage to corporal attack.  When skin cells are forced to proliferate faster than their normal rhythm of development the result is scarred skin, whether it be controlled as in the case of chemical peeling or accidental.

However, when skin is burdened with years of cuticle build up, all the underlying processes slow down, contributing to  an aging syndrome.  Continued lack of support to skin cells thus burdened results in solar elastosis, triggered by the sun, but not totally a result of solar insult to the cell.

Therefore, the Danné method of skin revision is focused not only on the removal of redundant dead cell protein but the rebuilding of cells that are left behind after removal treatments are performed.

The simple philosophy is “Remove and Rebuild”.

Removal system

In this category we find the word “peel” a misnomer, even though it may be printed on a formula container as a popular name practitioners relate to.  The word “peel” suggests the human skin be likened to an onion, layers that can be peeled off systematically revealing forever-youthful skin underneath.  Skin as viewed under a microscope, cross-sectioned,  appears as a series of hills and valleys – old cells and new cells constantly changing and inter-connected.

It would be impossible to define where one layer of skin began and the other left off to insure a non-traumatising and even peeling procedure. Chemical peels and laser vaporization never leave the skin cells in the same pattern as normal. There is always a trade-off with these procedures. There is no trade-off with the DMK  procedures.  Despite gross epilation, erythema and weeping in some instances, the skin always returns to normal and the revisions are obvious and progressive.  

We have based this phenomenon on the analogy of viewing a woman of eighty years of age in a swimming costume.  Her wrinkles and discoloured skin appears in many cases to end at the breast bone whilst the upper tissue to the areola appears much creamier and texture – usually five to ten years younger looking that her face and back of hands.

We recognize this radical difference in skin tone to be the result of coverage by clothing while the face and hands are exposed to free radicals, sun damage and pollutants.

The point of this analogy is if the breast tissue is so much younger, then this proves the body is willing to provide newly proliferated cells at any time if not confronted by opposition.  This suggests that the face and hands can also be returned to the same status quo if prior damage is removed and the living cells are surrounded with the maximum environment necessary to maintain cell life to its fullest potential.

Enzymes

For thirty-eight years we have been using sophisticated enzymic preparations to hydrolyze dead and dying cells from the skin.  As nature’s biological catalysts, enzymes containing RNA and other proteins alleviate dead cells and other impurities by reverse osmosis.  Enzymes also orchestrate other chemical actions in the skin, bringing about total hydrolyzation progressively, which eliminates gases, effluvia and impurities leaving behind a clear, white substance surrounding the cells that are still alive. Of all DMK treatments, enzyme therapy is probably the most effective and least contraindicative way to revise skin over long periods of time.  Tightening and toning of the skin is observed after the very first treatments.  Striations of peripheral capillaries are also observed for one half hour to forty-five minutes, which indicate blood bringing oxygen to the skin’s mitochondria-creating a flush of ATP activity and then carrying off impurities, and leaving behind a clean toxin free matrix.

There is also a systematic action brought on by  DMK treatments that is allergy free due to the natural proteins and plant extracts that are selected as compatible with the human body.  Allergy levels have been so low over thirty years as to be practically non-existent.

We do recognize  however, that there may be some persons who are allergic to even pure and natural chemicals and may need testing. In the case of a positive reaction we have many alternative treatment choices.

PH Adjustment

There are three formula applications that are used as regular dead cell removal that can dramatically alter the pH of the skin to obtain a quick reaction.  These applications take only moments to work and are controlled so that the normal pH is established at the conclusion of the treatment.  In certain instances a  lactic acid compound blended well into a methycellulose base is applied which takes the pH to a low 3.2 on the pH scale.  This formula is compounded with a natural pseudo-heat extract that encourages a purging effect via the capillaries. The low pH hardens dead cell material to a point where it is detached from the main epidermal bed and is flushed from the skin.

An opposite formula, mainly used in female acne cases where  vellus hair is  present with the pustules and papules and hypotrpic scars. This formulation takes the skin’s  Ph temporarily up to 12Ph.

 Hair and surface skin cells desquamate in three-four minutes thus relieving the pustules without any pressure or squeezing.  This treatment is ideal in cases of impacted hair follicles but can also be used in scar revision treatments and pigmentation disorders.  Again, the skin is quickly restored to a normal pH after the treatment to avoid continued desquamation and alkaline burns.

Alpha Hydroxy Acids

In 1988, we introduced this medium to Europe and Asia, long before the commercial wave began and even before most people were aware that such a product existed.  At that time Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA) were just another tool to use in our kit of pharmacopoeia – not a mainstream treatment and hardly a medium with which to build entire cosmetic treatment ranges around.

We did not follow the same paths of research as many other companies, uplifting glycolic acid as the premier ingredient.  While we realise that glycolic acid does indeed posses the smallest molecule in the AHA family, penetration is not the only influence on the skin, there are other receptors that create action within the epidermis such as the ganglia, peripheral capillaries and the ecrine system.  In addition, we have a resurfacing protocol entitled RP  that rebuilds and removes at the same time—actually installing more fibroblast activity at the site of application. Our intense research into the world of retinoids has yielded a formula that is ideal to build and  tighten crepy and thin skins of ageing patients. This can be performed anywhere on the body.

Rather than depending upon the unpredictable glycolic acid we have, worked out a blend and a series of serums that would allow the practitioner to customize their treatment according to client need and based on the fact that the face, neck, decollate and hands are rather like a landscape with varying surfaces that require different treatment – not a one dimensional surface that would respond to one formula.

There is a lot of controversy surrounding glycolic acid, many companies claiming to offer a “different” type of glycolic product.  Actually, to the chemist there is only one type, but it can be slightly altered with buffers and so-called neutralisers thus providing a cosmetic grade and an industrial grade.  The industrial grade gives the best results but is very unpredictable and has a habit of wandering indiscriminate throughout the various hills and valleys of the skin creating, “hot spots” or other irritations.

In 1987, we formulated a blend of four Alpha Hydroxy Acids, which compounded malic, lactic, glycolic and citric acids in a low level serum with a pH of 3.1.  In addition we formulated a booster serum modeled after the Jessner’s solution with a modified  base for physicians.

Thirdly we formulated a neutralizing or “buffering” peel solution from a natural sea plankton methycellulose.  These three mediums provide the practitioner with the total control to customise their serum applications, thereby removing the confusion over which glycolic acid to use – buffered, neutralized or non-neutralised.  This also placed our practitioners beyond the hype of manufacturing companies who used the controversy about “which glycolic is best” as an advertising gimmick.

Our research since then has shown that AHA, when used in conjunction with enzymic treatments does much more than merely remove the “glue” that holds cells together as alleged by manufacturers.  There is also dried sebum wax and pre-deposited fats clogging the openings and voids in the epidermis.  Our Pro Alpha Serums dissolve this debris progressively, many times “pushing” tiny wax plugs in the pores to the surface of the skin visibly to the naked eye!  AHA are hygroscopic acids, they use available moisture contained in the epidermal strata.  This creates a swelling up of dead cells, much like miniature balloons, until they burst and detach from the skin.  There is also some evidence that the desmosome contacts between adjacent keratinocytes are dissolved, allowing maximum new cell proliferation.

AHA belongs in the hands of trained practitioners only.  Based on it’s hydrolytic action, frequent use of cremes or other cosmetics containing even minute amounts of AHA will eventually deplete not only surface moisture in the epidermis but will draw upon the bilayer of moisture, using up the skin’s last reservoir of fluids.  The user will eventually look very dehydrated although initial usage will actually create a rosy, plumped up look to the skin for a few weeks.  This effect is misleading.

Post treatments by a DMK therapist or nurse are necessary to re-establish the bilayer activity and the acid mantle of the epidermis.  Medical opinion is that one to six of the Pro Alpha AHA and enzyme treatments per year, with 4-6 week intervals, will give the same radical exfoliation effects of the conventional TCA/Phenol medical peels or laser vaporising – without the accompanying side effects, contraindications, discomfort, long convalescence period and unnatural configuration of surface skin (controlled scar).

REBUILD

Collagen proliferation requires vitamin C as the precursor to the amino acid chain that initiates the production of tropocollagen via the fibroblasts – hence the importance of citric acid as an AHA ingredient, but more important is the introduction of absorbable vitamin C’s into the skin using our exclusive, 30-year-old transdermal crème base.

The acid mantle has to be augmented daily since it is the only natural moisturizer.  We have imitated nature by providing the skin with topical applications of a fractionized oil resembling sebum and an aqueous spray resembling sudoriferous secretion (sweat).  Ordinary crèmes do not moisturize, only lubricate unless formulated transdermally.

Home prescriptives are essential for progressive results of professional treatment.  These home prescriptives will vary based on ethnic origin and specific skin disorders.  The physician or practitioner prescribes these home prescriptive formulas in the same manner a GP will prescribe an antibiotic for strep throat.

The patient will find it easier to accept a total change of their former cosmetic regimen when confronted with this prescription method of the correct home-use formulas as opposed to being “sold” a skin care range after their treatment.  The patient must commit to the home prescriptive programs.  If they do not, then the treatments will be aborted by ordinary commercial home use products no matter how well they are manufactured.

PROTECT

Lastly we must address the increasing danger from sun radiation, which is compromising the races of people pre-disposed to natural sun protection (i.e., Black, Hispanic, Asian etc.).

It took years of research to develop a transdermal sunblock that gave 30 SPF protection without being greasy or uncomfortable for the patient to wear on a daily basis.  Our transdermal block was recognised by a Norwegian skiing team during the last Winter Olympics as superior to all other sunblocks.

The DMK  Transdermal Sun Block also is compatible with all other DMK  home prescriptives and is essential during post Pro Alpha AHA treatments to avoid any hyperpigmentation potential.

We have provided the physician and health practitioner with the most advanced and practical approach to skin revision in the world to date.  We are aware that many of our concepts have been imitated over a period of time but our pioneering ventures have not gone unrecognised.

In our opinion there is no substitute for nature. We do not observe acne, aging, or hyper-pigmented skin disorders as a natural phenomenon, but rather as an unnatural manifestation of skin that is attempting to function in a healthy manner but is stopped from doing so by a variety of internal and external influences not conducive to healthy skin.

We have provided concept, formula, education and protocol to assist the skin and the body to maintain it’s cell-life programming.  Our colleague Dr. Thomas Smith of the International Clinics of Biological Regeneration says it best; “Human cells are not really programmed for death, they are designed to attempt to stay alive for as long as possible.”

Stem cells — myths or medical breakdown

Stem cells — myths or medical breakdown

Years ago, stem cells and growth factors became hero ingredients in skin care formulations. Some brands have claimed plant-based stem cells helped reproduce human stem cells and growth factors directly changing the behavior of human DNA. I would like to share with you a few facts on stem cells in skincare products.

Let’s start by clearing up some confusion about the roles that stem cells and growth factors performed in regenerating skin. Human biology versus skincare ingredients;

Growth factors are proteins that regulate cellular growth, proliferation and differentiation under controlled conditions, maintaining healthy skin structure.

Growth factors are secreted by all cell types that make up the epidermis (outer layer of skin) and dermis (the layer of skin between the epidermis and subcutaneous tissue), including keratinocytes, fibroblasts and melanocytes.

Growth factors are naturally occurring regulatory molecules. They stimulate cell and tissue function through influencing cell differentiation by changing their biochemical activity. Regulating the rate of proliferation – certain beta glucans are in this class, enhancing dendrite strength in the Langerhans cells, turning the macrophages at the end of each dendrite into a weapon of mass destruction against free radicals, bacterial attack, viral and even parasitic invasion!

Medical stem cell implantation plays a role as back-up support to the implanted cells and potential auto-immune rejection. So far there have been many successes aspirating fresh stem cells from hip  bones and re-injecting them into injured areas such as a torn meniscus. These a mesenchymal stem cells, cells that can develop into distinct mesenchymal tissue such as bone, tendons, muscles, adipose tissue cartilage, nerve tissue, blood and blood cells.

However, this is a far cry from crèmes, serums etc. in skin care.

The most common question that I am asked about stem cells is how do the plant stem cells in  a crème or gel serum  work with your own stem cells…well the answer is THEY DON’T.

As a way of inflicting miniature wounds, technicians scratch cultured plant tissue. This damage stimulates the plant’s stem cells to re act and heal, inducing the formation of new stem cells on the wounded surfaces. After slow replication and division on the outside, new cells fashion a large accumulation of colorless cells, known as callous. Cells composing the callous divide into cells that do not carry the specific features of individuated plant cells. This callous is used as an ingredient in facial crèmes.

In actual fact it is the pluripotent(human) downstream differentiated plant cells are ones that possess the biochemical machinery required to produce the myriad of  regenerative activity in the human body including the skin.

Stem cells that would be included in extracts derived from plants that have pharmaceutical or other value (e.g. quinine, digitalis, aloe vera, etc.) would not be active—although the other botanical micronutrients may very well be! Think of them as “skin food” not stem cell therapy.

Plant totipotent stem cells do not produce substances capable of affecting other cells. Callouses are forced upon living plant stems to encourage new baby cells, harvested and then put into crèmes as “stem cell therapy”. Even rubbing human stem cells on the skin would never work. They have to be alive in the product despite any effective delivery mechanism. Plant stem cells have nothing to do with the human genetic blue print. There has been some argument that these “callouses” or other plant stem cell extracts have many micro nutrients that benefit skin. This is no more true than other aspects of a plant, which includes roots, leaves, buds, flowers and fruit.

A potent botanical offering into skin cells that evoke an ionic transfer, a cellular impact of a physiological change (or I should say  a reverse to homeostasis), depends largely on where the plant is grown, how it is prepared for extraction   and how it is processed into a product with bio-availability that is still active. AND the delivery system into the skin.

We should look at which Phyto chemicals that skin cells respond positively to and what they recognize, how we can influence and support growth factors and life cycle of cells.

My methods have always been to work with the body’s chemistry

Even if plant stem cells DID have a biological energy kick start, many research papers have concluded that stem cells are just too large to penetrate the lipid barrier of the epidermis, even if they could be somehow kept alive in a crème, serum etc.

There is hope in stem cell research for total skin revision however. Keep in mind that every time we do any kind of aggressive exfoliation we are calling upon stem cells in the healing process. However, this is normally not very well controlled or targeted and the healing is spotty or focused on only the areas of the epidermis where trauma is the most virulent.  Rebecca James Gadberry dissertation on Epigenetics points this out.

Using our OWN skin stem cells, of which we have a rich supply at any age, although the amount decreases slowly with time,  requires  the following steps:

 

  • Getting to them with minimum inflammatory response (although some is needed)
  • Getting the stem cells OUT of their “house” and on a genetic pathway to another “house “in the skin such as a keratinocyte or a fibroblast cell.
  • Maintaining the differentiation over a period of time—47 days at least, until fresh epidermal tissue is maximized.

There are so many variables but an over-night epiphany made me feel it could be done, so I recruited an international team of doctors, botanists and biochemists to take a leap of faith on a project like this with no commercial aspect other  than to see if it can be done.

I feel that these types of protocols will strengthen the integrity of the skin in a fundamental way as apposed to a dramatic “ta da!”  way, as seen right after a deeper “peel”. In cases of loss of turgidity, or concavities in the skin that follows absorption of injected fillers and adipose fat tissue transfers, the tissue will appear more elevated and fuller. I also see it as an excellent post plastic surgery addition, where undermining and tissue placement will look more even and plumper, any ripple effect banished with improved skin structure.

There are many types of stem cells with a variety of special functions. All are Inter-connected but organ specific. It is like a large puzzle that is there and has been since the birth of our plant. We are just now finding a few pieces of the puzzle and seeing where they go.

The two main types of stem cells are embryonic stem cells (ES) and adult stem cells (such as somatic stem cells). Other sub types such as induced pluripotent stem cells (PCS’s) are lab produced by re-programming adult cells to express ES characteristics.

In skin, tissue specific (or somatic) are more specialized than embryonic stem cells. Typically, these types of stem cells can generate different cell types for the specific tissue or organ in which they live.

In skin research so far here are terms you should know and research. You may be able to put two and two together and come up with an answer nobody else has thought of yet! The field is wide open.

  • Adult Stem Cells
  • Blastocyst
  • Bone Marrow Stromal Cells
  • Cytoplasm
  • Fibroblast
  • Langerhans Islets
  • Induced pluripotent stem cells
  • Multipotent
  • Mesenchymal
  • Somatic Stem Cells
  • Teratoma
  • Tissue Specific stem cells
  • Totipotent
  • Progenitor cells

This is the tip of a very large ice burg, but I encourage everyone to arm themselves with the available yet ever changing knowledge which in turn, will make cosmetic manufacturers more conscious of what is real and what is buzz word phony!

It has long been my contention as I look back from now, from this year, that the cells of the body are not programmed to die easily. They are programmed to stay alive as long as possible given the right maintenance and environmental surroundings.

Myth and Realities of glycolic acid

Myth and Realities of glycolic acid

 

However,  recent discoveries surrounding Glutamine, an amino acid, have linked it to the most important functions of the body’s vial organs and system. This includes healing stomach and colon disorders, liver malfunctions and the strengthening of muscles. Inadequate supplies of Glutamine are responsible for the wasting of facial and body muscle and for the weakness that accompanies fever or other stressful illness.

A similar discovery was made more than two hundred years ago. Lemons and Limes were found to prevent scurvy in sailors who ate them on long voyages. Seaman who did not suffer rickets, skin atrophy and loss of hair. Many left home ports as young men and came home looking aged beyond their years.

The supplemental use of Glutamine may be as important to people recovering from illness or stress related to aging as lemons and limes were to sailors wishing to avoid scurvy.

I have written a great deal about the importance of crèmes that transdermally deliver protein into the skin during treatments. Proteins made up of amino acids function as the building blocks of the skin (and body). They also are orchestrated by all the body’s enzymes and many important hormones known as peptides. Proteins provide energy to the skin and tissue repair. In the human body twenty important amino acids are used to make proteins. From this group of twenty, NINE amino acids are considered essential and eleven are considered non-essential.

By essential, we mean that the body cannot create the amino acid on its own, the amino acid must be provided from an outside source (such as a Transdermal crème). By non-essential, we man that the amino acid can be manufactured in sufficient quantities by the body’s own tissues.

Histidine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan and valine.

Alanine, arginine, aspartic acid, asparagine, glutamic acid, glycine, proline, serine, cystine and tyrosine.

Glutamine was considered a nonessential amino acid for many years, But recent research has changed this view and since the 1980’s, Glutamine has been considered a CONDITIONALLY ESSENTIAL AMINO ACID.

This means that under normal circumstances (such as when we are young with few skin problems) the body can synthesize adequate quantities of the amino acid. BUT IN TIMES OF STRESS SUCH AS ACNE, FEVER, ILLNESS, DIETING, HORMONAL FLUCTUATION OR CHEMOTHERAPY the skin and body cannot provide as much Glutamine as it requires. AN additional amount of the amino acid must be delivered both internally and topically to prevent a deficiency.

Common sense, I was always a great believer in preventative therapy. For years, I have had mothers bring their ten-year-old kids into our clinics and ask “when should they start taking care of their skin?”
I always tell them “the day before yesterday”! One does not WAIT until the ravages of time or skin disease shows its ugly head in one’s mirror!

I cannot possibly embark on writing about all the important roles Glutamine plays in our skin and body in this one article. The research is vast and overwhelmingly conclusive. Hence, I will illuminate my readers on one important aspect, the muscles of the face.

Muscle cells are fused together into myofilaments. Within each cell are the contractile fibers (fibers that contract and constrict) actin and myosin. When a nerve tells a muscle to contract, these fibers interact and shorten, resulting in a contraction of the muscle. The more times it contracts, the stronger it gets and the firmer the face and neck. The actin and myosin are surrounded by cytoplasm, which is the storage center for many of the cell’s structures, lying between the actin-myosin bundles are the mitochondria. Mitochondria are the energy source of every cell, much like a furnace makes energy for heating your house.

In muscle cells, under healthy conditions, extra large amounts of Glutamine are floating freely, ready to be used as fuel, a new protein or other important compounds and amino acid activity.

When your clients are metabolically stressed, however, they become catabolic, which means that their tissues are breaking down. When a client is metabolically stressed, the facial muscles produce significantly more Glutamine in an effort to maintain blood levels and capillary activity. The capillary loops of course, are responsible in bringing blood, along with oxygen, to the skin cells and remove toxins.

At this point concentrations of Glutamine within the muscle cells may fall by at least 50%. If enough protein is not delivered to the skin through TRANSDERMAL therapy to meet the demands, the muscles begin to break down to supply the skin with Glutamine. I had observed this in the late 1960’s, but my observations were only supported by clinical trials. Now we have other research supporting the necessity of Glutamine in treatment formulas. This is particularly apparent in what we call “muscle banding enzymatic treatments. There have been non-surgical “neck lifts” so striking that even I was skeptical until I actually met the client in person.

Of course this type of result will take several treatments to achieve and will have to be maintained at home religiously. But once they observe a dramatic skin tightening effect like this, the client usually finds it worth the trouble of up keep. Even a surgical neck lift is temporary.

We have some surgeons we research for that offer a combination of both the topical treatment and surgical neck lifting.

In addition to its other functions glutathione is the main scavenger of toxic ingredients in the body. For many years, researchers overlooked the role Glutamine plays in the formation of glutathione.

Nature VS Nurture

Nature VS Nurture

There are millions of children all over the world that have perfect skin from age one — peaches and crème through ages 5-9 and suddenly beyond those age groups skin anomalies start to happen.

From age 12 on hormonal cascades kick into place and the hypothalamus gland, a bit like a radio antenna, starts relaying all the peer-group, hormonal and accelerated life-style stress that invades this young body—male as well as female. BOOM full-blown acne!

Which brings me to a question often asked me by parents over the last 5 decades “how soon should I put my children on skin care?”

Outside of treating things like baby rash or milia, I usually say a child at ages 4-6 should be made aware of sun damage and protection. We have kids in Australia where the solar rays are merciless that carry a bottle of Beta Gel and DMK Sunscreen in their lunch box or back packs.

Not only is a layer of Beta Gel under any of my sunscreens protective against DNA damage whereupon the insult is recorded permanently in the cells only to be played back negatively when they turn 40#, but it is like an Emergency Room in a bottle, great for scrapes, burns or other injuries that plaque kids on the play grounds or during sports activities!

Around age nine, little girls start to become young ladies! They are aware that Mom is a little paranoid of “looking too old” and observe the AM and PM rituals Mom goes through including the mysterious masque she puts on the day before she and the Father have a special occasion out or a house party!

Girls are much savvier and more sophisticated now days then when I was a boy in the 1950” s (everything was secret from kids then). It is not too far fetched to teach them the basic rules of how their skin works, how to support all its young, powerful defense mechanisms so that when they hit 30 they can literally deal with environmental and emotional stress and not really change appearance too much for the next 20-25 years (given genetic influence).

When I pose this possibility to young people they look at me in wonder, exclaiming “but is this possible?”

At this point I mention my age and the years and efforts I have put into “not changing too much” which often convinces them and their parents (who are footing the treatment bills) to start skin education early.

This also gives them a head start and control when they enter the acne phase that hits nearly everyone to some degree—those years of growth, social interaction and peer-groupism that can affect who and what they become later in life when they are ‘out of the nest” and on their own!

In a world orchestrated by the internet with often overwhelming information flooding the child’s brain and in the case of diversity in younger people and bullying early confidence training from outside in is now compulsory!

One of our top physicians, Dr. Andrey Sotnik of DMK Ukraine contends that acne has now become a pathology of children, not teenagers anymore!

Here we see his 9-year-old son Leo (aptly named because at nine he really is little Prince-like, one can imagine the King later) already getting black heads on his little nose and chin.

Dr. Sotnik regularly performs Enzyme One therapy on his boy followed by Herb and Mineral Mist, Beta Gel and solar damage Gel—not the full-blown DMK Acne treatment but more as a prophylactic against the disorder in advance.

The child is also an avid skier confronting extreme cold and direct sun glancing off the alpine slopes—so he protects his skin with Beta Gel, Transdermal sunscreen and Hydroloc in the morning before setting out on the snow.

I guarantee that Leo will not suffer acne vulgaris—even if he is in highly stressful situations as a teen, nor will his classically good skin texture change much until he is in his 50’s!

This control of a better life for the children is in the hands of parents everywhere now and DMK practitioner’s world wide are trained and happy to assist parents in implementing this globally.

This is nurturing WITH nature from an early age.
