Four of the best London day spas, by Francesca Syz, Telegraph Magazine
"Tucked away behind Peter Jones in a red-brick Queen Anne revival house in Cadogan Gardens. QMS Medicosmetics was developed 25 years ago in Germany. It is a great optino for those interested in preventative measures over invasive surgery, to keep their skin young-looking. Within, it is a clinical white world of no-nonsense medical skincare, but although there are no relaxation areas, it feels strangely relaxing to be there, with its friendly, welcoming staff. The spa uses its own QMS Medicosmetics, a skincare system developed by Dr. Erich Schulte, a leading authority on skin ageing and regeneration, to provide personalised treatments and care products. We loved the three light, airy treatment rooms with heated beds, and a 90-minute personalised facial that included deep cleansing, exfoliation with fruit acids, a steam cleanse, an algae face mask and an oxygen boost in which oxygen was sprayed like a silky breeze over the skin, to speed up cell metabolism and regeneration. The details: Treatments cost from £45 to about £180 (020-7730-8090: wwwqmsmedicosmetics.com)"
