How the French Luxury Facials

Would you slather on cider vinegar to get clearer skin? Vinegar is a simplistic way of putting Biologique Recherche’s game-changing toner P50, but its potent combination of AHA, BHA and PHA exfoliants: lactic acid, malic acid, citric acid, salicylic acid and gluconolactone sure smells like it.

That every French girl endures — and comes to love and seek -— this scent and sensation proves its power as a chemical exfoliator.

Dr. Kaycee Reyes, founder of Luminisce Holistic Skin Innovation, is one such skincare enthusiast. She found BR while seeking skincare that would deliver results to rival the best lasers, facials, and injectables at her clinics during the pandemic years.

Reyes is one of the few physicians in the country with an internationally accredited clinical medicine degree to specialize in well-aging and regenerative medical science. She’s uncompromising with the technology made available at Luminisce — what more with what she puts on her skin every day?

Like a treatment you can bring home, La Grande Crème improves the functional architecture of elastin and collagen fibers

Developed by Yvan, Josette and Philippe Allouche, a biologist, a physiotherapist and a doctor, respectively, they combine their knowledge of the past 50 years, constantly researching new active ingredients and techniques to increase the health of the skin. Dr. Kaycee Reyes knew she had to offer BR in her clinics, too. She says during the launch, “If you can’t beat them, join them.”

Biologique Recherche Asia director Raphaelle Faure says during the launch, “Biologique Recherche and Luminisce complement each other. We want our patients to feel they are taken care of. We understand what they’re trying to achieve, their lifestyle, and what they need to do to get the maximum result they deserve.”

BR and Luminisce developed two facials to complement the clinic’s minimally invasive and non-invasive offerings.

“A lot of our patients do Botox or fillers. When you do fillers, you increase volume in certain areas and stretch the skin. If you want to minimize downtime, you need to increase elasticity to make it more natural-looking,” Faure explains.

“It’s all about making sure the skin is stronger and healthier. Once they have the lasers and injections, we reduce the redness. No matter how amazing the doctor is, there will always be redness.

“One of the consequences is you are shrinking the sebaceous glands; your skin will be a little dryer. To counter this, we need to increase lipids and make sure the skin is still balanced.”

For radiant skin is the VIP O2 Booster Treatment to detoxify and stimulate the epidermis, and reoxygenate the skin tissue choked by urban pollution. The complexion gains an incredible glow, skin is more luminous and bursting with radiance.

For even-toned skin is the Soin Restructurant Et Lissant, a reconditioning treatment that tones the epidermis. From your face and neck to your décolleté, the skin is drained, smoothed and toned.

BR is unique for measuring the skin’s state in five factors, going beyond hydration, pigmentation, elasticity, and sebum, but also checking for trans-epidermal water loss —addressing the skin’s ability to retain water and making it able to protect itself from all external forces. BR is also all about emollients: everything is creamy, anti-inflammatory, and rebalancing, whether it’s how they treat acne or brightening (not whitening).

More than the ingredients, every BR facial, coveted around the world, comes with a unique massage and application technique that makes skin instantly tighter and smoother. Those apprehensive about injectables or lasers swear by sticking only with BR. While it does take longer and requires daily efforts on your part, there are results. Of course, famous fans like Victoria Beckham, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Kim Kardashian combine it with the latest in-clinic dermatological treatments. Something you can do at Luminisce, too.
