The QMS MEDICOSMETICS PURE OXYGEN TREATMENT has been specifically designed to promote skin cell regeneration. A focussed stream of 98% pure oxygen is channelled onto the skin surface subsequent to an application of a concentrated formulation of hyaluronic acid, prompting deeper penetration. An ultimate skin boost with immediate results: Skin is intensively hydrated, appears more youthful and fine lines and wrinkles are visibly reduced. Skin texture is instantly smoothed and sculpted. Celebrities such as Madonna, Victoria Beckham, Kim Kardashian and Justin Timberlake swear by this treatment.
This week I was treated to a QMS MEDICOSMETICS PURE OXYGEN TREATMENT by Jasmine, part of the fantastic team at QMS MEDICOSMETICS in Illovo, Johannesburg.
I arrived at the pristine white salon and after receiving a warm welcome from the girls, was taken through to prepare for my treatment. The room was preheated to my satisfaction and the treatment bed was comfortable- perfect to get me into a relaxed mood and ready for a bit of pampering.
Jasmine really knows her stuff and is passionate about what she does; identifying and addressing problems or concerns with your skin. She led me through each step of the treatment, explaining each product and its function.
Every treatment begins with cleansing the skin using DEEP CLEANSING to gently but thoroughly cleanse, preparing it for subsequent products. This product contains no mineral oils like some other cleansers, which can damage the skin’s natural immune barrier (acid mantle) and disrupt the NMF (natural moisturising factor), which is made up of humectants (they draw water out of the atmosphere to our skin). I have been struggling with sensitive skin around my nose and mouth recently and have put it down to recently changing to a product that contains mineral oil.
Jasmine then proceeded to apply DERMABRASIVE GEL as I had mentioned the sensitivity I had been experiencing around my nose and mouth (normally EXFOLIANT FLUID would be used). This fluid is formulated especially for sensitive or problematic skin. It contains fruit acids and enzymes which gently removes dead skin cells, stimulates exfoliation, diminishes wrinkles and unblocks pores. The formulation is effective at preventing inflammation of sensitive or problematic skin, decreases sebum production and is also anti-bacterial. Nano Enhanced Cross Transportation technology allows for 15% deeper penetration of the active ingredients and by removing the dead skin, facilitates the effectiveness of further product application.
I have never been a fan of abrasive exfoliators. Why? The damage these “large” particles do to the microscopic cells of your skin is terrible!
GENTLE EXFOLIANT CREAM was applied over to further boost the peeling effect as well as moisturising and soothing the skin, providing extra refinement.
My skin was then refreshed using FRESHENING TONIC to remove any remaining residue while lightly moisturising. The ingredients restore the skin to its natural pH-level, necessary for the regeneration of the acid mantle after cleansing. This product also contains no alcohol so it will not strip or dehydrate the skin. It can also be used as a makeup remover.
After the tonic, ALGAE MASK was applied. This was one of my favourite parts of the treatment. A cool and calming mask, perfect after a fruit acid treatment, was spread lavishly over my face covering the eyes and mouth, transporting me away from the stresses and strains of life. Complemented by a hand massage using HAND CARE. I was amazed by the non-greasy formula that left no traces behind.
ALGAE MASK optimally helps lift the dead skin cells loosened during exfoliation and the active ingredients have an extremely pronounced capacity to provide moisture. Another extraordinary feature of this mask was its ability to show Jasmine, once removed, my exact troubles: Areas where I had dryness, whether my collagen production was on the decrease, leading to aging and any other problems she needed to focus on. I have been for many treatments as one of my greatest passions is skincare and I want to keep it looking young, healthy and vibrant. My experience in the past has always been a visual assessment by the therapist and a reliance on me to voice my problems and concerns. I have never seen a tool such as this that can be used to accurately pinpoint problems that you may not even be aware of. I could actually feel the dead skin that was lifted. I was very impressed!
DAY PROTECTION (DAY COLLAGEN would be applied for normal skin) was then applied which contains collagen and skin calming ingredients ideal for my sensitive skin. Collagen production begins to decrease at age 25 and levels are really low by the age of 35. Collagen is the protein responsible for giving our skin elasticity and strength. As production slows, we wrinkle and age. Yuck! DAY PROTECTION regulates the balance of sebum and moisture production- ideal for problem skin and improves the acid mantle to protect against environmental damage. Perfect for long-term use to regularise impure, chapped, rough or irritated skin by promoting healing and stimulating cell regeneration.
Now for the icing on the cake! HO2 HYALURON OXYGEN SERUM was gently puffed onto my skin using an applicator pistol. The hyaluronic acid within the serum intensively enhances the NMF of the skin, extends the youthful appearance of the skin and instantly fills fine lines and wrinkles (such as the ones Jasmine pointed out to me from the ALGAE MASK and which I have been attempting to banish for most of my thirties). Immediately, a smooth skin texture can be seen.
To aid the serum in penetrating deeper, the applicator pistol was then used to spray a concentrated (95%) stream of oxygen onto my skin. Concentrated oxygen delivered to the skin instantly reduces fine lines and wrinkles, reduces redness and other irritation. The combination of hyaluronic acid and oxygen left me with skin that was plumper, healthy looking and visibly younger. The mirror doesn’t lie. Remarkable!
The ACTIVATOR MASK was applied, containing marine collagen and hyaluronic acid. Marine collagen leaves a fine protective layer so the skin is left silky smooth as well as relaxing and firming the skin. This product is available for home use for an instant boost before that important event night. Whilst I was enjoying the effects of the mask, I received a tension tackling massage to my neck and shoulders with NECK & MORE. A product designed to particularly firm the neck and décolletage, often neglected and damaged from exposure to the sun, this product will target the visible signs of aging.
To finish off this wonderful experience skincare suited to my skin type was applied, which included a moisturiser containing SPF and an eye cream.
I could immediately see the fine wrinkles on my forehead had virtually disappeared. My face felt so smooth, plump to the touch and supple, giving it a healthy glow. The irritation around my nose and mouth had subsided and I no longer had the redness
This was a completely new experience to what I am used to in my monthly maintenance treatments. It really opened my eyes to the underlying causes of why we age and how to effectively treat my problems and concerns with a variety of outstanding products and treatments, developed over many years of research.
