Bespoke Parisian Skin Care Arrives at The Delamar Spa in Greenwich
(page 2 of 2)
Aquino began her relationship with Biologique Rechérche in 2002, while at the Paul Labrecque Salon & Spa in New York City, the Delamar explained in a message on the web page for the spa, whose director, Georgette Mallory, welcomed Aquino last Thursday.
Five years later, Aquino trained and worked with Aida Bicaj at the Institute de Beauté on New York's Upper East Side, according to the Delamar, which said, “There, Barbara’s passion deepened for the method and the brand. She thrilled clients with her extraordinary results. In 2008, [Biologique Recherche] courted Barbara to become the Comprehensive Biologique Rechérche National Trainer for all new and existing accounts worldwide. Barbara regularly attends professional training at the headquarters in Paris. She is one of a select few estheticians to have been trained by Madame Allouche, the brand’s founder.
“Barbara's commitment to education and training in beauty provides her with the tools to create a result driven, bespoke skin care protocol tailored to individual skin conditions, ages, and genders. The Delamar Spa is thrilled to introduce Barbara to lead our facial team.”
In addition to the Biologique Recherche Facials, guests at the Delamar’s spa can also enjoy a full-service nail salon by Beautiful Nails, the website says, adding, “Our newly renovated relaxation room offers comfortable, elegant furnishings to inspire rest and reflection before and after treatments.”
The Spa at Delamar is open daily from 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., however after-hours treatments can be arranged with advance notice. For treatment reservations call (203) 413-3520 or see the website, where reservations can be made.
Be sure to check out l’escale restaurant , which promises to “transport guests to the Côte d'Azur with the highest-quality seafood and shellfish, seasonal vegetables, regional herbs and spices.”
If that’s not “authentic” enough, the Ambassade de Beauté, Biologique’s flagship beauty institute, is located at the prestigious 32 Avenue des Champs-Elysées—and there’s plenty of great restaurants and hotels in the extended neighborhood known as the City of Light.
From the Bioligique Recherche website: Authenticity and harmony are the spirit and essence of Biologique Recherche skin care products which all boast the following specific characteristics :
- High concentration (over 20% in most products) of botanical, marine and biological extract.
- No artificial fragrances to preserve the integrity of the formulas and try to avoid allergic reactions.
- Respects the original structure of the active ingredients and most are therefore cold formulations.
- Contain high quality of their composition and active ingredients justifies the brand's value
- Formulated to work together using unique, original gestures and Remodeling Face Machine for immediate, outstanding, almost magical results.
The Assessment Stage:
Using a specific physiological, behavioral and tactile approach, each person's "Skin Instant" is assessed so that the most appropriated tailored beauty treatment can be recommended.
The Initialization Stage:
Like many skin specialists, Doctor Allouche believes that the epidermis is central to skin care. It is the skin's outer layer and the ultimate barrier which protects the integrity of our inner world. The epidermis' noble functions must be respected and it should receive customized treatment applied according to a precise and rigorous ritual. At Biologique Recherche we believe this stage is essential.
The Treatment Stage:
During this 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. The skin is a complex organ designed for protection and communication which regenerates miraculously every month throughout our entire lives. The unique benefits of these cutting edge, customized skin care treatments are both instant and lasting, even for particularly imbalanced "Skin Instants."
