In-the-know Silicon Valley spa savants are already familiar with Sense Spa, the tranquil, on-premise refuge of luxury hotel Rosewood Sand Hill. In addition to the 5-star property’s sweeping views of the surrounding Santa Cruz Mountains, olive tree-lined outdoor swimming pool (that happens to be heated year-round) and 121 plush guest rooms and suites, there’s now an even greater reason to visit this Northern California retreat: the launch of a masterfully curated facial menu, including a 2 hour anti-aging face & body treatment, from European medical-grade skincare leader QMS Medicosmetics. An exclusive high-tech hideaway boasting a new series of high-performance skincare treatments? Consider us intrigued.
The collaboration between Rosewood Sand Hill and QMS further establishes the German brand’s growing presence in U.S. luxury spas, and for good reason. The pioneering skincare brand believes in science, not miracles, firmly rooted in clinically proven results overseen by a panel of experts ranging from scientists to pharmaceutical pros to QMS Founder & Aesthetic Surgeon, Dr. Erich Schulte. Specializing in anti-aging collagen innovation, QMS skincare routines are underscored by powerful, 97% skin-identical collagens – the critical building blocks your skin needs in order to maintain, and restore, elasticity and firmness. Combined with the skin-smoothing sorcery of hyaluronic acid, it’s no wonder QMS has not only developed a cult following in Europe, but is already generating serious buzz Stateside. In addition to Rosewood Sand Hill, QMS skincare treatments can be found at the Four Seasons Philadelphia, Four Seasons Fort Lauderdale and Teton Mountain Lodge & Spa. Glenn Close, Renée Zellweger and Hollywood makeup artist Donald Mowat are all fans of the brand’s science-backed product line.
At Rosewood Sand Hill, local clientele and destination guests alike can choose from six, high-performance QMS facials. All are administered by seasoned estheticians meticulously educated by QMS international trainer, Rowan Hall-Farisee. The 90-minute QMS Brilliancy Facial targets hyperpigmentation, utilizing advanced lightening serums to even out skin tone and unveil a brighter, more radiant complexion. Expecting? Opt for the 60-minute QMS Plus One Facial, designed to relax and revitalize mothers-to-be complete with a hydrating hyaluronic and marine collagen mask. There’s even a dedicated facial for men, designed to hydrate, refine pores and eliminate impurities with gentle exfoliation.
But the real star is the signature, 90-minute QMS Collagen Renewal treatment. This anti-aging power facial utilizes the brand’s renowned Collagen-Hyaluronic Acid Complex to boost hydration and improve skin elasticity. A powerful Firming Mask diminishes fine lines, while a Plaster Cast Mask sculpts and tightens the jawline. Looking for full body firming? The unprecedented 2-hour QMS Front to Back treatment expands on the Collagen Renewal facial, adding a head-to-toe Exfoliating Body Foam and Firming Collagen Body Lotion for maximized anti-aging results.
QMS Medicosmetics’ high-performance facials at Sense Spa start at $310.00, which you can view in full here. Ready to turn your treatment into a relaxing, Northern CA getaway?
