The DMK professional alkaline wash system is a remarkable pain-free hair removal treatment for all areas of the face and body, designed to reduce fine downy hair called vellus hair, also known as ‘peach fuzz’.
The wet chemical action of the alkaline wash brings the skin and hair to its furthest alkaline level on the pH scale in less than three minutes, dissolving all hair and the destruction of the underlying vellus hair follicle.
Alkaline wash does not make the hair grow back thicker or darker nor does it stimulate dormant hair follicles as seen in some other hair removal processes, however, the alkaline wash will not permanently reduce thicker terminal hair due to the hair follicles sitting lower in the dermis where the alkaline wash cannot reach, laser or electrolysis can be used alongside the alkaline wash for a more permanent terminal hair removing solution.

WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE ALKALINE WASH & DERMA-PLANING?
This treatment is very different to dermaplaning, there are no scalpels involved or continuous unnecessary scraping of the skin, the alkaline wash will destruct the hair follicle and reduce the rate of growth of vellus hair, whereas dermaplaning will do neither. Great for anyone not suitable for IPL due to the hair being to light to pick up with the laser.
HOW MANY ALKALINE WASH TREATMENTS DO I REQUIRE AND HOW OFTEN?
Initially, you will require a single patch test to determine your suitability for the alkaline wash 72 hours before treatment will commence.Three treatments will be required, one treatment two weeks apart until all three treatments have been completed, thereafter you will require one treatment once per month for approximately three months. The rate of growth should have decreased around this stage and it maybe that you require a further treatment in two or three months-time, thereafter the frequency between treatments will become further apart.The above is a general guideline, however, this relies solely upon your physiological makeup, medications and hormones. There is no guarantee that every client will experience permanent vellus hair removal.
ARE THERE ANY AFTERCARE PRODUCTS REQUIRED?
Yes, the DMK Seba-E oil is recommended for use immediately after each treatment for at least 4 days to normalise and maintain optimal skin health. The cost for the Seba-E oil is £29.50.
