Anyone that has had a treatment at Zanya Spa Salon knows that it’s an incredible experience. But a Biologique Recherche facial is going to be different than anything you’ve had before…anywhere. For one thing, the treatment is done with only cold water. No steam here! All of the products are cold formulated to preserve the efficacy of the ingredients. And while hot water can strip your skin of important oils creating a drying effect, cold water causes the blood vessels to contract and dilate. It’s also very anti-inflammatory and really firms up the skin. The end result is the glow that Biologique Recherche has become known for.
Your aesthetician will start your treatment by examining your skin and asking you a few questions. While you might be used to just getting your “usual” if you’re a regular to facials, a Biologique treatment is catered to the state of your skin on that day, every time. The aesthetician will put together the perfect combination of P50 (the brand’s iconic chemical exfoliant, of which Zanya carries six versions), masks and serums fully customized to you.
Obviously, the products are incredibly important to the treatment, but the way the aesthetician works on your face makes all of the difference. Many other facials consist of steam treatments, scrubs and extractions, but Biologique Recherche doesn’t use any of that. Instead of manual exfoliation, the brand relies on chemical, herbotanical processes. This might sound like hyperbole, but a Biologique Recherche facial can be described as the closest you’ll get to a facelift without actual surgery. The patented techniques include a series of pinching, pulling and fast repetitive movements that have been designed to boost lymphatic drainage, reduce puffiness, sculpt the muscles, tighten the skin and LIFT. Your aesthetician will perform the treatment on one half of your face and then the other. Trust us, you’ll want to grab a mirror in between sides. Even if you thought your face looked decent when you walked in, it’s going to look dull and droopy compared to the side that is now plump, lifted and radiant. (Don’t be surprised if you get comments on that GLOW for the rest of the day!)
