Press Release. Paris, France & Toronto, Canada, November 1, 2017. VISAGE Clinic and Recherche Biologique (Biologique Recherche or BR) join forces in promoting skin care in Toronto.
Toronto plastic surgeon Dr. Marc DuPéré and his team feel very privileged to have been chosen by this prestigious skincare line from Les Champs Élysées, Paris, to be the flagship plastic surgery centre in Toronto to carry their luxury brand. What a wonderful and natural collaboration between two like-minded teams of skin experts, not to mention that Dr. DuPéré “took residence” in Paris in 2002 to do his fellowship in aesthetic plastic surgery of the face and breast.
To seal this new fruitful association, the Biologique Recherche’s 2 co-presidents, Dr. Philippe Allouche and Mr. Pierre-Louis Delapalme, came to Toronto and met Dr. DuPéré and team. They toured our clinic’s new facility in the heart of Yorkville, Toronto.
Biologique Recherche has taken a scientific and laboratory approach to skin care for more than 40 years. The brand offers a combination of a clinical approach to personalized cosmetic care products, pure, concentrated products, complex formulas, and original and rigorous treatments. These form the foundation of the reputation for the efficacy of Biologique Recherche’s methodology. This approach resonated strongly with Dr. DuPéré’s scientific medical background, along with his knowledge and regular use of stem cells, PRP (platelet-rich plasma) and fat grafting--not to mention his love for organic farming and “bio” products.
Pre- and Post-Op Skin Preparation and Accelerated Healing. With the large amount of body liposculpting and neck and face surgery performed every week at VISAGE, Dr. DuPéré had spent several months looking for the ideal skin preparation, or “conditioning,” for those big surgeries. There is no doubt that getting the epidermis and dermis and all the blood vessels activated and super-charged before surgery improves the postoperative results. This, combined with postoperative skin and deep tissue treatment, with deep tissue massaging and manual lymphatic drainage, are a great combination for optimal results.
It happens that Biologique Recherche has both face and body products, for both pre-surgical preparation and for postoperative healing.
Coincidentally, Dr. DuPéré had tried their wonderful biological products in luxury spas during his numerous plastic surgery business travels in Paris, Deauville, Rio de Janeiro, Malaga, Beijing and New York City throughout the past few years.
What attracted first Dr. DuPéré to Biologique Recherche is BR’s choice of naturally based, rejuvenating, and regenerating molecules and their commitment to the responsible and ethical use (including absolutely no injury to the animal or marine sources) of the different raw materials, including:
- Animal collagen
- Marine collagen
- Amniotic serum
- Iribiol complex
- Animal elastin
- Marine elastin
- Placenta serum
- Spleen serum
Biologique Recherche uses only highly concentrated vegetable, biological, or biomarine extracts to ensure the efficacy of their products. BR prefers to use raw, vegetable-based materials when possible, and strongly forbids the use of synthetic perfumes. This preserves the integrity of the formulas and avoids the sensitization phenomena. BR does not use silicone or parabens. BR is also committed to using the cold process (think about how the best olive oil is obtained) as a priority to respect as much as possible the original structure of the active elements contained in their formulas.
BR demonstrates a commitment to the environment (minimal packaging, low-energy production, low carbon production, etc.), animal, and employee well-being. None of their products involve injuring earth or marine animals, and each source is carefully selected for their healthy and organic philosophies and all are traceable.
Many of their products, including the iconic product, the P50 Lotion, have the “Origine France Garantie” label, which allows consumers to identify French products more easily, while giving clear and controlled indications of their traceability. This label is an association of companies and professional organizations around the development of an ambitious policy to promote French-made products and know-how, both on the domestic and export markets.
Biologique Recherche has also been a Global Wellness Day ambassador, a volunteer project that seeks to raise awareness of the value of our lives and of living together. Dr. DuPéré and the Visage team also understand the importance of personal wellness and promote the contribution of wellness as a preventive medicine.
Here is what Dr DuPéré revealed to Global News “The Morning Show” about Biologique Recherche:
In summary, Biologique Recherche:
