The DMK Six Layer Peel

Posted on

The DMK philosophy at the core of every paramedical treatment and homecare corrector is to REMOVE, REBUILD, MAINTAIN and PROTECT. elysium is here to remove and rebuild with DMK salon treatments and your DMK home prescriptives will maintain our results and protect your skin from internal and external aggressors. 

Today we look at the Six Layer Peel and it’s role in removing and rebuilding your skin to it’s genetic potential. This intensive resurfacing procedure has similar results to laser resurfacing, the difference however is we support your skin through every stage of the process with prep 2-4 weeks prior to your peel, homecare to optimise and maintain your results, two lift off treatments post peel and the emotional support throughout, from experienced DMK paramedical skin technicians at elysium.

Contrary to the name, it does not peel off 6 layers of skin! The name six layer comes from the number of layers of pro alpha peel that is applied to the skin. Some skins can take more layers, some a little less. This is completely tailored to the individual’s skin at the time of application.

So what does it do?

This amazing treatment removes thickened cell build up and the skins imperfections and enhances the skins own ability to regenerate. It is based on a natural healing approach using botanical chemistry to restore the skins function.

It re-establishes a healthy environment for normal cell proliferation through the desquamation and elimination of waste material, revising and restoring a more youthful tight healthy glowing complexion! Peeling gets rid of old, redundant cells so new cells can receive the trans epidermal nutrition of amino acids and other proteins and vitamins A C E and D from the DMK home prescriptive range.

It has been developed to address skin conditions such as deep wrinkles, stubborn pigmentation, thickened, sundamaged skin, open pores and scarring. The results you see in 10 days is around 60-70% of the results you would achieve after visiting elysium every week for 18 months!

How does it feel?

This peel isn’t for the faint hearted, your skin literally peels off over 7 to 10 days and  it can be quite a painful and uncomfortable experience. But the results outweigh any of that and everyone agrees it is totally worth it. No pain, no gain!

We (Paula, Cassie and Lisa) are all undergoing six layer peels at the moment and with the worst behind us we are now on day 4 of our journey and our skin is starting to shed like a snake!

The peel is applied over two days and each time it is left on the skin over night. Application is painful and hot, like having chilli rubbed all over your face! We found the use of an electric fan made this so much more bearable and we all coped really well throughout application. We all agreed the first layer is the worst and after 2 or 3 layers it seems to settle down a little. But everyone’s experience is different. Day 2, you are back in the salon for a second application of the peel. This was a little more intense on day 2 but again, the fan makes it so much better. Peel stays on again over night.

The next 2 days your skin goes into “repair mode” a lot of fluid is excreted and by day 4 you are feeling so tight, it’s hard to eat and smile! Sometime around day 4 or 5 you get some relief and begin to shed. It is so important at this stage not to pick and pull pieces of skin off! You can trim the skin if you wish as it comes away naturally.

Day 5 is lift off day and we see you back at elysium for your first lift of enzyme treatment. Another lift off treatment is done on day 10.

Throughout this whole process you are supporting your skin with the prescribed DMK homecare (included in your peel package).

We are so excited to be able to offer this advanced resurfacing procedure to our clients and can not wait to help you achieve beautiful skin!

This winter we are offering FREE EFA supplements valued at $68.50 with every six layer peel!
