Introducing the Biologique Recherche Micropuncture Lab & Professional Epilator

Micropuncture labJill Bucy Skincare is beyond excited to introduce two new state-of-the-art services: Biologique Micropuncture Lab and the Professional Epilator. Read on to find out how these new treatments can help you maintain a glowing, youthful appearance. Seriously. Science doesn’t lie.

Biologique Micropuncture Lab
Welcome to the future. And the future features fantastic, glowing skin. Biologique Recherche has developed the Biologique Micropuncture Lab to combine the best of BR techniques and products with the proven process of building up the skin through tiny micropunctures in the epidermis. Let’s tell you how.

The issue of tissue aging
The tissue aging process is extremely complex and occurs as an inevitable chain reaction, when the cellular or the intrinsic biochemical components of both the dermis and epidermis may suffer, become modified, break down, or even disappear. For example, between the ages of 20 and 80, the number of dermal fibroblasts—which produces collagen and elastin—declines by half in the dermis.

That’s where the Biologique Micropuncture Lab comes in.Biologique Rechereche takes the micropuncture beauty technique and elevates it to a new level by incorporating it with other proven techniques and products. Beauty therapists now have in their arsenal a highly active instrument that targets dermal–epidermal exchanges with great precision while boosting the results of other Biolologique Recherche techniques.

How it works
This method is based on the capacity of the epidermis to regenerate itself when stimulated. When micropuncture perforations occur, they release growth factors that then activate fibroblasts, which in turn produce collagen and elastin, two things essential to skin health.

The method is based on 0.25mm puncture into the skin (which only penetrates the intra-epidermal target zone so there’s no risk of bleeding) with single-use sterile needles. In addition, the needle application area measures about 1cm and is significantly more accurate than a roller, enabling targeted and perfectly controllable results.

The obtained effects are the stimulation of intra-dermal collagen production and increased penetration of a special BR serum, Cocktail d’Actiffs Regenerants.

Results at a glance
The result is that skin is refined, fine lines and wrinkles are smoothed, and scars are minimized. There is no risk of bleeding, and the technique is nearly painless.

The treatment:

  • Moisturizes skin and helps it to regain elasticity and smoothness
  • Offers visible results after the first session, cumulative effects with each additional session
  • Clearly improves skin quality (moisture and tone)
  • Results in more radiant complexion
  • Makes sagging skin feel denser, restructured and stretched
  • Plumps up skin and rejuvenates face, resulting in less tired looking complexion
  • Provides completely natural results, without any artificial or pinched appearance
  • Revitalizes epidermis while delivering a supplement of 64 essential active ingredients
  • Stimulates tissue repair and reactivates the fiber production process
  • Smooths and plumps skin
  • Helps with premature aging


The Professional Epilator
Have you been making a laundry list of complaints for your next visit to the dermatologist? Want to get rid of skin tags, a cherry angioma that just cropped up on your torso, broken capillaries around your nose? You don’t need to visit the dermatologist; you can just stop into the studio and try out the Professional Epilator.

This cutting-edge tool safely and effectively removes blemishes, lesions growths, and irregularities. The handheld device combines radio and high-frequency currents. It’s gently placed over the targeted treatment area, where a 3–5-second pulse of high-intensity radio frequency is emitted, delivering heat to the layers of skin. By drawing and vaporizing the moisture within the targeted cells, the skin irregularity will quickly slough off and fade away.

How it works
The treatment is non-evasive and completely safe for the skin. It doesn’t require any numbing agents, and delivers a quick pulse of energy to naturally encourage the sloughing of dead skin cells. It’s not painful; clients report a very fast pinching sensation at the treatment site. The process takes from 3–5 seconds per treatment spot. It can be used to treat the face, neck, torso, arms and legs, and depending on the area being treated, a repeat session may be required but the results are usually permanent, with no visible scarring.

Both men and women find excellent results with the procedure, which can safely treat any skin type.

Results at a glance
The professional epilator can eliminate:

  • Skin tags
  • Cherry angiomas
  • Sebaceous hyperplasia
  • Broken capillaries
  • Sunspots
  • Milia
  • Minor skin flaws

Recovery
Clients should expect the recovery period to take 2-7 days after treatment. Minor redness may occur at the treatment site, but will quickly diminish as the blemish fades. No downtime is required after the procedure. Your esthetician can assess your skin’s condition and then design a personalized treatment plan to meet your unique needs and wishes.
