THE BIGGER PICTURE
Holistic skin health was the buzz -- with
DNA repair at its core - dominating this
year's major cosmedical conferences.
Conditions such as wrinkles and
hyperpigmentation will never really be
satisfactorily resolved, at best controlled,
unless damage to the DNA from whence
the discolouration emanates is repaired,
according to US cosmetic surgeon,
dermatologist and scientific researcher
Dr Ronald Moy, creator of DNA
At the Non Surgical Symposium in
June (where Dr Moy presented), also
Cosmetex (May), the Australasian
College of Aesthetic Medicine (ACAM)
conference (July) and the Australasian
Academy of Anti-Ageing Medicine (A5M)
annual conference (August), prominent
in presentations, workshops, individual
inter views SPA+CLINIC conducted
and general chit chat from "the floor"
was the topic of facilitating DNA repair
of the skin.
When the natural production of
growth factors and DNA repair enzymes
is compromised, it contributes to
inflammation, thus some of the more
obvious ageing effects such as dryness,
dullness in tone, discolouration and age
spots, fine lines and wrinkles and overall
loss of radiance and resiliency. These are,
in effect, byproducts of inf lammation
to the skin.
The general consensus is that the
key ingredients in topical products

Will (right, before and after),
who has been the subject
of a BBC documentary,
was treated for severe
acne with DMK's signature
Enzyme Masques on his
face and body by Susanne
Williams at their Harley St,
London, clinic and with
DMK home care.
The treatments have
changed my life completely. Before, I would distance myself when talking to
people so maybe they wouldn't notice the horror plastering my face.
Acne affected my learning. In school I didn't have the confidence to even put
my hand up to ask questions.
Professionally, my life was hindered. How was I going to apply for a job; go to an
interview worrying so much about how my skin looked?
I was missing out on my teen years - making friends, learning, having a good
time and developing. Acne destroyed all of that.
I was practically bed-bound; I wouldn't leave my room. I'd spend most days
on acne forums. Since I started DMK in May, 2012, my family and I have been
overwhelmed with the results.
My confidence has improved and I've become the person that I was supposed
to be -- outgoing and euphoric - after being trapped in hell for so long.
DMK home products are very simple to use; cleanse, spray, a gel, moisturiser
and sun cream. Easy! It takes less than two minutes. They're not harsh and leave
my skin feeling smooth and looking very fresh.
At the start of the treatment I travelled to one of the DMK clinics in London
every two weeks for four months to treat my back, chest and face and then have
a top-up treatment every few months.

This 88-year-old lady had a long-term history of using soap and water. For
six weeks we recommended she use dermaviduals cleansing milk only,
applied to a dry face and tissued - not rinsed - off because the cleanser
contains DMS (derma membrane structure components). This acts as a
barrier cream. Look at the difference!

repair enzymes, retinol (vitamin A) and
antioxidants (eg. vitamins B3, C and E),

slow and prevent further DNA deterioration
caused by UV.
The use of autologous (blood-

Stephanie Sherlock, CEO of medical
device and technology distributor
Architects of Skin, says their Da Vinci (for
skin rejuvenation) and Factor G6 (for hair
regrowth) formulas contain dramatically
more GF than the body naturally produces.
"The body normally produces 127 ng/
ml worth of GF on its own where there are
10,000-21,000 ng/ml of GF in our skin and
hair serums," she says.
DNA repair enzymes are a fairly
new concept in skincare. Cells naturally
have DNA repair enzymes such as
ultrasomes, roxisome, photosomes and
telomerase. DNA skin repair ingredients
are usually based on enzymes derived from
a variety of sources, including sea plankton
