Press Release. Paris, France & Toronto, Canada, November 1, 2017. VISAGE Clinic and Recherche Biologique (Biologique Recherche or BR) join forces in promoting skin health in Toronto.
Toronto Plastic Surgeon Dr. Marc DuPéré and his team feel very privileged and exclusive to have been chosen by this prestigious Skin Care line from Les Champs Élysées, Paris, to be the flagship Plastic Surgery Aesthetic 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 – face and breast.
To seal this new fruitful association, the Biologique Recherche’s two co-presidents – Dr. Philippe Allouche and Mr. Pierre-Louis Delapalme – came to Toronto and met Dr. DuPéré and team and toured the VISAGE Clinic, Laser and MedSpa new facility in the heart of Yorkville, Toronto.
Biologique Recherche (often shortened to BR) has a scientific and laboratory approach to skin care for over 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 which are 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 been looking for several months for the ideal skin preparation, aka ‘conditioning’, for those big surgeries. There is no doubt that getting the epidermis and dermis and all the blood vessels activated and super-charged pre-surgery helps the postoperative results. This, combined with post-operative 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 several times over the last 2 years 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.
What attracted first Dr. DuPéré to Biologique Recherche is BR’s choice of “natural”, “bio” rejuvenating and regenerating molecules and the it’s commitment to the responsible and ethical use (and absolutely no injury to the animal or marine sources) of the different raw materials such as:
- 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 guarantee the effect of our products. BR prefers to use vegetable raw materials when possible, and strongly forbids the use of synthetic perfumes to preserve the integrity of the formulas and avoid the sensitization phenomena. BR does not use silicone and 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 our formulas.
BR is also committed to the environment (minimal packaging, low-energy production, low carbons production, etc.), animal and employee well-being. None of their products involve injuring earth and 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 “Origine France Garantie” is an association of companies and professional organizations around the development of an ambitious policy to promote the «made in France» industry and know-how, both on the domestic and export market.
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.
