Today I am joined by Danné Montague-King, a world-wide leader in the field of skin rejuvenation.
As far back as the early 1960’s this visionary and pioneer in Alternative Methods of Natural Pharmacology became aware that something was missing in the way skin care was approached. Inspired by his own severe bouts of acne, he began treating his own skin with chemistry that the human body recognizes. The incredible results Danné achieved on himself lead him to research similar methods for treating other skin conditions including aging and ethnic related conditions.
Danné was the first scientist to recognize the powers of enzymes for hydrolyzation of dead cells in the skin. He created the now renowned Remove, Rebuild, Protect & Maintain system which has revolutionized the way aesthetics is now being approached throughout the industry.
His work with Vitamin C therapy as an age retardant and collagen enhancer stretches back nearly thirty years. He was the first journalist to alert Europe and Asia to the powers of Alpha Hydroxy Acids for professional use, yet was the only person to caution against its use in home use products.
Danné Montague-King strongly believes that there should be a positive working relationship between the medical and aesthetics professions. To achieve this, Danné has worked with some of the leading physicians and surgeons throughout the world to elevate the importance of proper skin care for healthy skin maintenance, surgical alternatives, scar revision and pre & post-operative care.
Danné is also a tireless educator who annually travels throughout the world conducting lectures and training professionals and consumers. As an invited guest speaker at many of the aesthetics exhibitions, Danné has become a well known figure within CIDESCO and BABTEC.
As a journalist, Danné Montague-King is a regular contributor to many of the world’s most important professional journals including: Professional Beauty, Les Nouvelles Esthetique, Health & Beauty, Shjkonnet og Helse, Australian Beauty, Beauty New Zealand and Irish Beauty. Although his writing can sometimes be scientific, his inspirational use of analogies combined with wit and humor have created a loyal fan base.
Anyone who has met Danné in person or listened to one of his lectures will understand why he has become a figure of the popular media. His strong personality is balanced by his knowledge of the industry and his controversial willingness to contradict the current thinking within it. Danné has been interviewed by journalists from around the world for magazines such as Marie Clair, Cosmo, Elle, Vogue and Tattler. In the early go’s, Danné hosted a local Los Angeles cable show called Skin Deep and has been interviewed on various radio talk shows throughout his career.
Danné and I sit down and debunk one of the most common skin myths: That you have to peel to get results!
We dive deep into peels, their action and their place in the industry, and also discuss DMK’s revolutionary concept of remove, rebuild, protect, and maintain.
