After an appearance at one of the first aesthetic conferences held in Southern California, Danné was invited to lecture at a CIDESCO conference in London. With his introduction into the international professional aesthetics network, Danné quickly began building his reputation as a leading journalist and lecturer in the aesthetics industry. He can be credited for writing hundreds of aesthetics-based articles published in dozens of professional and consumer magazines throughout the world. He is a tireless educator and has made hundreds of personal appearances from radio and television to exhibitions and private conferences. In 2011, Danné was honored by DERMASCOPE Magazine as an American Legend in the aesthetics industry and yet he still goes almost unrecognized by the majority of aestheticians in the United States.
Along with Danné's professional reputation, the DMK brand has grown and expanded throughout the world. Clinics featuring DMK treatments can be found in as unlikely of places as Tibet and Siberia. The DMK Concept and products are distributed in more than 25 countries covering Europe, Middle East, Asia, South Africa, South Pacific and North America. Unfortunately the United States distribution is relatively limited and concentrated around Southern California and the areas around Pittsburgh and Baltimore.
Imitating nature for natural results has been the basis of the Danné Montague-King concept for more than 40 years. By combining state-of-the-art botanical science with innovative technology, Danné has created one of the most advanced skin care systems available. The key to the DMK concept are the four simple steps: REMOVE, REBUILD, PROTECT AND MAINTAIN.
With thousands of doctors, nurses and aestheticians performing DMK treatments in more than 20 countries worldwide, the DMK Concept was one of the first to be recognized as "paramedical" in nature. However, none of the DMK products are prescription and all the DMK treatments can be performed by licensed aestheticians, without medical supervision, as long as they are properly trained.
While most skin care companies are focused on "miracle ingredients" or exaggerated marketing claims, DMK prefers to focus on education, training and actual results. Danné is a true believer in his own words:
"DMK concentrates on the concept and training… the products are simply tools. Think about a surgeon, no matter how good his scalpel is, if he is not properly skilled, you will not get good results." DMK teaches therapists to understand how the skin functions and how to work with those functions to create positive changes. Then we provide them with the best tools available – DMK products – to be used in these processes.
DMK is best known for our enzyme treatments, which detoxifies the skin through its lymph drainage effect while encouraging oxygen uptake and the normalization of skin functions. DMK is also the master of skin revision using pH modification through the use of acids and alkalines. One of the most dramatic of these being the Six Layer Peel with results similar to Laser or TCA peels, without the contraindications or discomfort.
In addition, DMK recently created the world's first silicone-based camouflage foundation. Complete coverage with a light silky feel that last all day without touchup. Best of all, it is completely safe for acne and other skin conditions. A must have for any skin revision clinic.
