After enduring a season of intense heat, punishing rays and environmental pollutants, celebs and those in the know are literally saving face by indulging in the $250 Dermal Quench Treatment, the latest anti-aging miracle cure being offered at the Kate Somerville Skin Health Experts in Los Angeles. During the hour-long, two-step service, which is designed to plump, hydrate and lift the skin, a skilled esthetician uses a patented spray technology that alternates between oxygen and an ultra-hydrating, hylaraunic acid serum. How does it work? "Pumping oxygen into the skin via hyperbaric pressure stimulates the cell renewal process and encourages collagen and elastin regeneration 70 percent faster than the normal rate," says owner Kate Somerville. "The result is a reduction of those fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, lips and mouth." Talk about a breath of fresh air. For more information, visit
