Dermaviduals – Custom Blended, Medical Skin care
Skin & Ko Perth’s Skin Philosophy – called ‘corneotherapy”
Skin and Ko Perth practice ‘corneotherapy’ which focuses on the restoration, preservation and maintenance of one’s stratum corneum (top layer of skin) and the skin’s barrier defence systems, while selected home care from your Skin Therapist along with in-clinic treatment modalities are designed to preserve the integrity of your epidermis (the outer layer of skin) at ALL times.
The only brand of skincare that has been approved to fully comply with the corneotherapy philosophy is Dermaviduals, whom S&K have been chosen to collaborate with to provide the most forward care for your skin currently available on the market.
Your skin’s main role is to produce, form and care for your barrier defence systems during your time on earth. Continually working to protect the inner world from the outer world and the outer world from the inner world.
If one of your defence systems is disrupted, damaged or impaired there will be a flow on effect to other cells and systems of the skin barrier, as they do not act separately, but continually influence each other.
Corneotherapy is a remedial skin treatment methodology with its core principle being the repair and maintenance of the skin barrier defence systems. As the name suggests, Corneotherapy is closely related to Corneobiology, which is the physiological, biologic and biochemical processes of the stratum corneum; the outermost layer of the epidermis.
Corneotherapy is a way of treating skin and this methodology of treatment only works when physiological components that mimic your skin’s structure and function are applied directly to the skin (outside in therapy), while only the purest of ingredients are sourced from around the world to which then go through highly strict Corneotherapeutic regulations to which MUST meet this criteria of repair, replenish and regenerated.
Corneotherapy refers to preventive interventions that are primarily directed into he correction and restoration of the stratum corner barrier that has been rendered defective and impaired by disease, genetics and a variety of mechanical, physical, chemical and psychological external insults and stresses.
What Does Dermaviduals stand for?
Dermatological cosmetic with an individual concept. Skin care that is formulated specifically for your skin. Choosing from 47 serum concentrates to add to a base cream of your skin type… so EACH time a blend is made for you it is made JUST for YOU, your skin type and skin concerns.
This skin mimicking, skin-in-a-jar formulation absolutely has
NO conventional emulsifiers (which draws moisture out of your skin and into the other conventional cream ON your face)
NO mineral oils
To begin a Dermaviduals skin journey and purchase the products, you must aligned with a Dermaviduals Skin Therapist who prescribes your skincare for you. Please email us on to obtain a unique, tailored prescription for your skins requirements.
Once you have commenced your new skin care regime, you may experience a period of transition as your skin caters for the new active ingredients it receives. This doesn’t happen to everyone, but it can happen.
Please read here to learn more about it.
The Dermaviduals Adjustment Phase
Skin and Ko have the ability to adapt Dermaviduals skincare products to the individual without any hype, unless of course one is new to the range then quite possibly there might be a few lumps and bumps along the way to your unique journey of skin health … especially as your skin detoxes from its previous life with chemical compositions, confusing each skin cell as to HOW they are meant to behave.. they need time to detox, to re-educate themselves and learn how to function normally, something they haven’t been able to do for a longgggg time.
If your epidermis is not functioning as it should because of an underlying medical condition/medications, poor nutrition or you have been using skincare/makeup products that don’t work with the physiology of the skin, then sadly the natural defence systems within your epidermis are slowly but surely deteriorating away; whether you can see physically see it happening or not.
Corneotherapy is designed to awaken your skin’s immunity by removing toxic waste matter from the largest organ of your body, so if one has been using skincare with fragrances, emulsifiers, preservatives, parabens, silicones, amines, colours and dyes and you’re starting on a Dermaviduals home care prescription for the first time…
then one can possibly experience any of the following:
more congestion than usual
Not all clients when starting on Dermaviduals will experience this transition. If you have a huge cosmetic chemistry history for example, then there is a good chance that your skin is going to get a lot worse before it gets better.
Corneotherapy is a lifestyle choice and therefore, your responsibility to make sure that anything that touches your skin meets the criteria of Corneotherapy; yes, ladies (and gents), this also includes your makeup and fake tan!
Why you might ask? Dermaviduals has a very effective delivery system.. Liposomes and Nanoparticles composed of Phosphatidylcholine will allow for non Corneotherapeutic matter (conventional skincare/makeup etc) to hitchhike their way past the stratum corneum, through the barrier defence systems of the epidermis to which then can trigger an onset immune system response! Please, don’t be a ‘chemist’ and mix your Dermaviduals products with any other skincare/makeup range that you might have within your bathroom. Absolutely 100% NO using other brands when using Dermaviduals
Lastly, Dermaviduals is extremely potent. Seriously. When you are recommend about introducing slowly, GO LOW, GO SLOW… don’t be too gung ho and give yourself a red rash response because of misuse!!!
ALWAYS ask staff all your questions and no question is a silly one, especially when it comes to Corneotherapy and skin cells… it can be sooo confusing!
