DermaQuest has taken anti-ageing, plant stem cell treatments to the next level with their exciting Sweet Chill facial treatment. A facial treatment that delivers incredible results when it comes to skin health and appearance.
This advanced treatment uses cleverly combined products to recharge and reenergise the skin, reviving dull complexions by awakening and refreshing skin cells. Results are impressive thanks to the rich, deeply nourishing and transformative ingredients used.
Let’s break down exactly how the new Sweet Chill treatment helps to freeze time and deliver a regenerated natural glow that we all crave…
Skin is professionally cleansed and prepared for treatment using DermaQuest’s Essential Daily Cleanser, followed by the Peptide Glyco Cleanser and DermaPrime.
The Sweet Exfoliate takes place using DermaQuest’s Glycolic Acid Resurfacer. This incredible product contains 30 per cent Glycolic Acid, Lactic Acid, Lilac Plant Stem Cell (Syringa Vulgaris Leaf Cell Culture Extract) and Green Leaf Tea Extract (Camellia Sinensis). These powerful ingredients significantly increase cellular turnover delivering a range of anti-ageing benefits including improved skin tone and texture. Antioxidants actively preserve and protect skin cells to enhance skin health and appearance even further. When the resurfacer is removed skin is left feeling refreshed and revived!
The Chill Stem Cell 3D Mask is applied to smooth, nourish and deeply hydrate the skin. Containing performance ingredients including Papyrus Plant Stem Cell (Rhododendron Ferrugineum Leaf Cell Culture Extract), Liquid Ice (Menthyl PCA), Marine Water MicroAlge (Nannochloropsis) and Acmella Oleracea Extract, this powerful mask promotes the skin’s own regeneration abilities resulting in a brightened complexion that is deeply nourished. You can physically ‘feel’ the mask at work as it cools and firms the skin. Client feedback about the relaxing elements of this treatment due to the products, skin sensations and application processes have been incredibly positive. Great results and a great experience too.
Treatment is finished using DermaQuest’s incredible Essential Hydrating B5 Serum, their Stem Cell Rebuilding Complex and their SheerZinc SPF 30 for added environmental protection.

6 Special Characteristics of Asian & Darker Skin
1. Asian skin is more prone to sensitivity
Asian skin is said to be prone to irritation as we have a thinner stratum corneum or the outermost layer of skin, compared to other ethnic groups. As a result, the skin becomes extremely sensitive to environmental factors and chemicals, which can disrupt the skin’s pH balance. Our essentials range from Dermaquest is perfect. Our Papaya and pineapple cleanser gently nibbles away the dead layers of skin, while our amazing B5 hydrating serum gives your skin the hydration it needs.
Suncreen is a very important part of our daily skin care routine. We offer a Physical SPF which is effective immediately and less likely to cause irritation or sensitivity like other chemical Spfs on the market.
2. Asian skin scars more easily
Because the stratum corneumis thinner , it is also said that Asian skin are genetically predisposed to scar more easily than others. Hence, greater care must be given when an acne breakout occurs or when undergoing any kind of treatments such as Laser hair removal or Chemical Peels.
At Simply Skin Oldham our Practitioners have years of experience and knowledge and only use medical grade equipment and products at our Clinic.
3. Asian skin has more issues with hyperpigmentation
All skin contains about the same number of melanocytes but the amount of melanin they produce varies. Melanin is a natural skin pigment that protects the skin from UV damage. Obviously, dark skinned people produce more melanin and light skin people produce less. While research have indicated that Asians have more photo-protective pigment melanin – Dr. Kwame Osei, who has studied genetics, indicated that we all have three layers of melanin – Asian skin actually have more issues with pigmentary disorders such as hyperpigmentation, melasma, freckles and lentigines, compared to other ethnic groups. This is why you see lots of Asian cosmetics including skin lightening and brightening ingredients.
Again SPF is a most, daily, regardless of the weather. We offer a Brightening cream which can help tackle some of these issues combined with our amazing Skin peels.
4. Asian skin loses moisture more easily
Some studies have suggested that the Transepidermal Water Loss (TEWL) values were highest in Asians. Asian skin showed the highest levels of TEWL, as well as increased levels of permeability. TEWL is the amount of water vapor lost through the skin under non-sweating conditions. So more skin hydration is needed! A moisturiser high in water-binding ingredients such as hyaluronic acid is perfect. Its not greasy and soaks in immediately. One application of our serum is the equivalent to 8 glasses of water for your skin!
5. Asian skin gets oily more easily
It is often said that Asian skin has more sebaceous glands and is oilier than Caucasian skin type. This could have something to do with the weather, obviously for Asians living outside the UK!
6. When the skin is oily we desperately try to reduce this oil and can sometimes make the
When the skin is stripped of oil using harsh products it panics and will actually produce more oil. Salicylic is a great acid to reduce oil but hydration must be put back into the skin to keep it healthy.
6. Asian skin is more resistant to aging
While the stratum corneum in Asian skin is said to be thinner , the dermis is apparently thicker. The dermis contains greater collagen levels. Collagen is what gives us elasticity in our skin and youth. Collagen starts to reduce by the age of just 25! So no time like the present to start taking care of your skin.
This information, while mostly based on research data, may not apply across the board to all Asians. Everybody is different regardless of Skin Type or colour.
