Looking for reduction of unwanted fine Vellus facial hair?
DMK Alkaline wash is what you need!

Treatment of fine downy hair

DMK Alkaline Wash

The DMK Alkaline Wash system is a remarkable treatment. It is designed to reduce fine, downy hair. This hair type is hard to remove with other methods. It grows thick and lacks pigment. So, it can take a long time to treat with electrolysis or laser. The advantage of alkaline wash is that you can remove a lot of hair in one treatment. And it’s discomfort-free!

DMK Alkaline Wash for fine hair

How does DMK Alkaline Wash Work?

Mix alkaline powder to make a paste. It is applied to the skin for 3-5 minutes. (Times may differ based on the treated area.) The treatment takes the hair to a high alkaline level, which dissolves the hair and weakens the hair root.

At first, the hair will grow back at a normal rate. But, as the treatments progress, the rate of re-growth will become slower. This slowing usually leads to permanent hair loss. Alkaline Wash can remove thick, terminal hair, but it will grow back.

Frequently Asked Questions

How many treatments will I need before the hair is permanently removed?

It is impossible to estimate how many treatments are required for permanent hair removal as this is dependent on many things. 

For example, how the hair has been previously treated, how long it has been there, reasons for hair growth etc. 

Some clients report a reduction after just 1 treatment however every client is different.

How long does each treatment take?

The treatment usually takes approximately 1/2 hour, depending on the size of the area
being treated.

Why do I need a consultation & a patch test prior to treatment?

Your DMK Practitioner will examine the area to be treated, as well as discuss your medical history and any allergies you may have to understand if the treatment is suitable for you. 

A patch test is required to ensure that your skin is suitable for Alkaline Wash Treatment.

Which area of my face can be treated?

Any areas of the face can be treated provided the hair type and skin is suitable.

I have both coarse and fine hair, can I still have the treatment?


The coarse, dark hair will need to be treated with electrolysis for permanent removal, while the fine, downy hair may be treated with DM Alkaline Wash. 

We recommend that you begin with the Alkaline Wash Treatment and the coarse hairs can then be treated 7-10 days later with electrolysis.

How often should I have the treatment?

Initially every two weeks. After your first DMK Alkaline Wash Treatment, the hair is likely to grow back at its normal rate, but as the treatments progress, the re-growth rate will become slower. 

Your time between treatments will then increase.

Will the Treatment stimulate the hair?

It is impossible for the Alkaline Wash to stimulate hair growth as it has a dissolving and diminishing effect on the hair follicle.
