The Biologique Recherche methodology uses 3 fundamental stages:

The Assessment Stage

The Skin Instant Lab is a scientific-grade skin analysis machine with probes to measure hydration levels, trans-epidermal water loss, elasticity, pigmentation & sebum production levels. This is recorded using a specialised diagnostic analysis to allow the prescription of a highly individualised skin care regimen and to monitor changes in the skin over time, providing dynamic assistance to modify skin care regimens over time.

The Initialisation Stage

The Initialisation Stage is a crucial part of the Biologique Recherche Methodology. During this stage, the epidermis is thoroughly cleansed, its pH is balanced, it is gently exfoliated and its proteo-lipidic film is restored. Impurities and dead cells are gradually brought to the surface and eliminated. After gentle exfoliation and mask treatment, the skin is ready to receive Treatment Stage products.

The Treatment Stage

During the Treatment Stage, products containing the highest concentrations of active ingredients are applied to "recondition" the epidermis and help activate both its regeneration properties and those of the skin's deeper structures. Products used during this phase balance, hydrate and revitalise the epidermis to progessively improve the quality of the skin and leave the complexion radiant.

Skin Instant Lab Homecare Consultation

The Skin Instant Lab is a unique analysis, diagnosis, product prescription and treatment prescription system. It also helps monitor changes in the skin over time to proactively adjust the treatments offered.
