Why You Need a Kate Somerville DERMAL QUENCH Treatment

After work today, I had an appointment with Margarita Vega, Product Specialist for Kate Somerville at Neiman Marcus at Tysons Galleria. I had booked the last appointment of the day for a DERMAL QUENCH treatment and facial (referenced in some materials as DERMAQUENCH).

Margarita was ready for me when I arrived a few minutes early. Our weather was horrendous, and she had had a few cancellations. I can't imagine why anyone would have given up a slot to avoid getting wet. I got drenched multiple times today, but I wouldn't have missed this treatment for rain or anything short of hospitalization.

DERMAL QUENCH Oxygen Treatment produces instant, unbelievable results, and Neiman Marcus is doing the treatments for free - treatments that cost hundreds of dollars elsewhere.When Margarita was finished, I had stepped out of a time capsule into a face that I had about three years ago.

Margarita did a facial before she did the oxygen treatment. Naturally, she used Kate Somerville's pro-level products for all phases of my relaxing treat. She cleansed my skin with Gentle Daily Wash and then exfoliated with Micro Glycolic Polisher, a professional-strength treatment peel that resurfaces and restores skin. I told her that my face could handle glycolic acid, despite the sensitivity of my skin - and it did. Kate Somerville has products for every skin type, and Margarita was careful to talk to me about my skin and what it likes before she selected the treatments she applied.

The Quench Hydrating Mask was an incredibly cooling pleasure. While it was working, she made my treat even better by a quick arm and hand massage, using Goat Milk Body Lotion. She also applied Neck Tissue Repair in such a soothing way. By that point, I was so relaxed, she could have done anything and I would have been happy. The reason I went, though, was to experience Kate Somerville's DERMAL QUENCH Oxygen Treatment - applied with a machine that pumps serum and oxygen into your skin, hydrating and plumping it to take off the years.

This treatment is well-known among celebrities who suffer from jet lag or have to walk the red carpet looking fabulous. It's starting to be well-known among my set (ordinary women), unwilling to look "older," but not willing to endure expensive, painful, and bruising injections. Margarita told me that women want to know where they can buy the DERMAL QUENCH machine, and now I know why. This could get addictive.

What does DERMAL QUENCH do? It's a hydrating treatment that delivers oxygen, vitamins, and hyaluronic acid serum under hyperbaric pressure to produce age-defying results. After complimenting my skin, which was very sweet and totally unnecessary, Margareta told me that she would concentrate on the lines on my forehead. I asked her to also work on my nasolabial folds, which bother me more than my forehead, and she was game. The machine and the HydraKate Line Release serum used with it are intended to hydrate, plump, soothe, soften, tone, and lift the skin. The treatment can be used anywhere on your face. Concerned about your undereye area? No problem - the treatment can be applied there. You will glow when your treatment is over. In fact, you probably won't want to leave. The treatment feels like a high-powered airbrushing, but it's gentle and relaxing. The results are said to last two to three days, long enough to look younger (and great) for a big event.

HydraKate Line Release, used with the oxygen treatment, has some high-tech ingredients.
  • HSC Complex - a proprietary ingredient that counters the loss of lipids
  • Hyaluronic Acid - a moisture magnet
  • Leuphasyl - reduces the depth of expression wrinkles and is a safe alternative to Botox
  • SNAP-8 - reduces wrinkles and muscular contractions at the surface
  • Pepha-Tight - algae extract and pullulan to strengthen connective tissue and firm the skin, while hydrating
  • Peptides - the darlings of state-of-the-art skin care, which help to build collagen and reduce the signs of aging
Margarita showed me my face in a magnifying mirror after she did the initial facial treatments and before she did the DERMAL QUENCH treatment. I saw my "expression lines," hard to miss in the mirror. Then she set to work with her little spray wand, a pleasant experience once I realized how it felt and exactly what she was doing (concentrating on any little wrinkle she saw). After about five minutes (maybe a few more - I was totally relaxed in her hands), she was finished and handed me a mirror. I was stunned - totally stunned. While I still had some wrinkles on my forehead, they were significantly reduced. The nasolabial folds and the other shallow parentheses around my mouth? They were gone - truly gone. She noticed the dramatic difference. So did I. It was amazing. No wonder women want to buy the machine.

Margarita finished my treatment with more serum and Line Release Under Eye Repair Cream. I was relaxed, hydrated, dewy, and free of the surface wrinkles that plague me. You can experience this too.

If you live in the DC area, Margarita will be doing the DERMAL QUENCH treatment on November 11. Call (703) 761-1600, extension 3304, to book an appointment. If you would also like the luxury of a facial and the oxygen treatment, you can make an appointment for November 23. She does them about once a month, and they are complimentary. You should take the opportunity learn about Kate Somerville's fabulous skin-care products and the ones that will make you glow. I'm building a list, and Margarita kindly gave me some samples to bring home so that I can continue to experience the luxury of Kate Somerville and make my treatment results last as long as possible.

If you don't live in the DC area, you have options. Many of the Kate Somerville counters are offering DERMAL QUENCH treatments, so ask. Kate's own clinic in Los Angeles provides all Kate Somerville services.

You need to do this! I have never experienced a treatment that took off years in just a few minutes - until today. Want to see a cool video? Check out this one from just one clinic that uses this fabulous Kate Somerville technology. Or Google DERMAL QUENCH to see what a phenomenon it is.

WOW!!! My jaw just dropped reading this review- seriously. This sounds like the most amazing facial experience ever - and I read all of the facial reviews in Allure and all the beauty mags! I really really want to book a facial like this - the way it is described is just mesmerizing!!! I have a big event coming up and i know exactly where i am going to go to get my facial!

I'm intrigued! I'm calling first thing tomorrow.

Daly Beauty said...

Oh wow I wonder if this is available in impressive! Lucky you, what an experience. Sounds so relaxing...

Morning, friends! I'm still marveling at yesterday's facial. I'd read about oxygen treatments and how effective they could be, but it took seeing to believe. Margarita asked me if I wanted to book the November dates, and I said I didn't want to be "piggy." This morning, I'm reconsidering. :)

If you are in Canada or anywhere that's "not DC, Virginia, or Maryland," find a Kate Somerville counter or clinic!

Hi Ava!

Yes, call. This was so much fun. Before I went to bed last night, I looked at my "glowing face," and just sighed.

I'd recommend you make an appt. for the off-the-floor facial. The Nov. 11 is an intro to the oxygen treatment on the floor. Why not go for the "best"?

Look for my friend Kathy Shoreman while you are there. She's a fabulous SA.

BTW, we will be doing a promo at both NMs soon, and I hope to meet you in person!

What a lovely way to end the day! I did smile, though, at the miracle you described. It's amazing what a bit of quality "me" time can achieve especially when you put yourself in the capable hands of one of Kate's excellent estheticians. Her facials are legend here in La La Land and for good reason: bonafide results! Not just for celebraties or models, a day of beauty has become a favorite bounding ritual for the ladies in a bridal party. Young or old, everyone wants to glow on that special day!

Hi Eileen,

Margarita did mention weddings among the other special occasions that draw women to have the facials. I've had plenty of nice facials in the last year or two, but I don't ever remember seeing such dramatic results. I think I may join those begging to buy the machine. :)

Oh I LOVED my Dermal Quench treatments I've had and glad you finally got to experience one! They are amazing! I am in love wtih the Kate Somerville products and Quench is one I've gotten so many people hooked on. The Quench that is used in this treatment is a professional, stronger version, but the regular Quench for a daily use is wonderful.

Charlestongirl said...

Hey there, Fab!

I think I'm going to have to buy Quench...and a few other things. I'm so glad we have Kate counters in my area now.

Unknown said...

Oh no! I've been itching for Kate Somerville products! After seeing it on tv. I am so jealous right now!

Charlestongirl said...

Don't be jealous, find the closest Kate counter/clinic! Her Web sites lists many spas that use her products. :)

Hi CG,

They are doing free Dermal Quench in Denver this weekend and I would like to schedule one. Are they expecting you to buy products afterward? I stumbled upon this older post as I googled Dermal Quench.

Charlestongirl said...

Hi Zeynep!

I would definitely schedule one. Most stores expect you to consider a purchase for such a fabulous free service, but as far as I know, there are no requirements. I'd definitely recommend you look seriously at the skin care. I love the Kate products I use.
