Treatment of the month: !QMS Medicosmetics facial

For 25 years, !QMS Medicosmetics has been providing consumers with state-of-the-art skincare formulations and treatments. BeautySouthAfrica’s content ed, Anien, put one of their treatments to the test:

I went for a !QMS Medicosmetics Classic Collagen Facial at Ageless Faces in Claremont, Cape Town and was thrilled with the results. This facial is an intense anti-ageing treatment. It features a unique system of natural soluble collagens that work together with exfoliation to plump and firm the skin. Fine lines are reduced and wrinkles appear less defined.

My experience of this facial was nothing but fabulous – I was completely relaxed through the entire process and left with a glow like I’ve never seen before. My therapist started off by double cleansing my skin and removing all my make-up. She then followed by gently rubbing a 10% AHA Exfoliant Fluid in circular motions all across my face and neck. This fluid gets rid of dry and dead skin cells and prepares the skin for the intense penetration of all the products applied thereafter, so the skin is left plump and hydrated.

My favourite part of the treatment was the next step – the algae rubber mask. When my therapist applied it, it felt like a thick gooey, mud-like consistency. It was extremely cooling and refreshing. She asked me if I was claustrophobic (as the mask hardens and grips to the skin), and in the end we decided to apply it over my entire face, but to leave two holes for my eyes. After a few minutes she removed it, cleansed my skin, and applied the second mask – the Plaster of Paris mask. In contrast, this mask felt warm and cosy on my face, and I later learnt that it had an intensely hydrating effect. It literally looks like plaster of Paris – rock hard and white. After this was removed my therapist cleansed my skin and applied a mixture of two !QMS moisturisers: the Sport Active Cream and Liquid Proteins.

My skin literally glowed when I left the salon, and it felt plump and hydrated. On top of it, I was incredibly relaxed and was left with smooth, radiant skin for days post-treatment. I was amazed by all the science and testing that goes into each of their products, and in terms of anti-ageing, I can see why they are one of the formulation leaders in the industry.
