French skincare company Biologique Recherche boasts a strong global following of beauty experts for their clinical approach to perfect skin. The innovative brand has yet again pushed new frontiers in the beauty world, introducing Seconde Peau, or Second Skin. It took 10 years of research to implement the first hyaluronic acid electrospun machine, which acts like a 3D printer, weaving out pure medical-grade hyaluronic skin patches designed to integrate into skin structures. This pioneering anti-ageing mask visibly lifts and accelerates skin renewal.
Revolutionary Breakthrough – Electrospun Technology
Inspired by the medical process used to treat patients with skin burns, Second Skin is a regenerating and lifting electrospun mask made up of 80 percent hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is an exceptional molecule capable of supporting 1,000 times its mass in water. The acid used in the treatment is medical grade, 40 times more concentrated than the average commercial skin care product and low in molecular weight 77 KDA. This active ingredient plays a crucial role in cellular regeneration, increasing firmness, reshaping facial contour and reducing wrinkles.
According to Dr. Philippe Allouche, Head of Creation, Innovation & Research for Biologique Recherche, the vision is to create a tissue capable of matching the volume and shape of the face. To create this tissue, pure hyaluronic acid is injected into the revolutionary Electrospun Machine where an innovative process helps weave nano fibers to become Second Skin patches. These patches then provide a kind of regeneration support structure that integrate active ingredients, allowing them to remain in contact with the skin long enough to stimulate deep cellular healing.
Second Skin Facial – Non-Invasive Transformation
The 60-minute facial starts with cleaning the face with cleansing milk specific to the guest’s skin. This procedure stimulates the absorption of oxygen into the skin, increases blood circulation and improves the efficacy of products applied thereafter. A lymphatic drainage massage using the same cleansing milk is then performed moving fluid out of tissues into lymph nodes where bacteria and viruses are destroyed. Biologique Recherche’s signature product, Lotion P50, is used to restore the natural PH balance of the skin, minimising problems such as acne and eczema. Second Skin patches are then carefully applied onto expression lines that are moistened by Second Skin serum, allowing the hyaluronic acid to completely absorb into the skin. The therapist will then massage the residue into skin, finishing with an application of Crème Masque Vernix.
A more intensive 90-minute facial is also available and includes the useage of an electroporation machine, applying a cocktail of active regenerating ingredients into the skin cells for optimum nourishment and results.
