Biologique Recherche Lotion P 50 PIGM 400 - New Formula !

Posted on November 18, 2016 by Clare Lee | 0 comments

It is finally here. Biologique Recherche is launching a new generation of Lotion P50. The new Lotion P50 PIGM 400 formula has highly active exfoliating properties and reinforced reconditioning that gently works with the natural exfoliation process to create an ideal environment on the surface of the epidermis. These properties help skin develop in a healthy and balanced way. Because of its exfoliating properties and low pH, Lotion P 50 is ideal for reconditioning the epidermis. Lotion P50 PIGM 400 thereby couples the benefits of Lotion P 50 while acting on pigmentation marks and lightening the skin. The result is skin is brightened with a more even skin tone.

Each day, the skin is subject to many external attacks like the sun, pollution, stress, etc. The complexion becomes dull and irregular presenting pigmentation marks and cutaneous imperfections. The face can look more tired and older than it really is.

Controlling the pigmentation process, stimulating exfoliation and cellular renewal helps fight against these manifestations. Exfoliation is a natural phenomenon during which the epidermis rids itself of its dead cells; however, with age, the natural skin renewal process slows down. The natural balance of the skin is altered; dead cells tend to build up in the outer layers of the epidermis and skin renewal takes longer. The result is the skin thickens, the complexion is duller and uneven.

It should be noted that, during youth, the skin renewal cycle lasts 20 to 28 days; with age, it tends to slow down and takes more than 30 days. Boosting exfoliation is a technique commonly practiced in dermatology and cosmetics and involves removing the outer layers of the epidermis. This method is often used in cases of pigmentary disorders: ephelides, lentigines, melasma, postinflammatory pigmentation, liver spots or in the case of surface unevenness: light roughness, actinic keratosis, seborrheic keratosis. Exfoliation has an action uniquely on the epidermis. The aim is to promote skin re-surfacing by removing dead cells and stimulating cellular renewal. The appearance of pigmentation marks under the influence of many factors can be due to hyper-secretion and poor melanin distribution, in addition to an accumulation of lipofuscin in the upper layers of the epidermis Pigmentation disorders, referred to as hyper-pigmentation, or more commonly known as pigmentation marks, are caused by excess melanin in the skin. Hyper-pigmentation can be caused by a number of factors

Sun exposure:
The natural phenomenon of hyperpigmentation is mainly caused by sun exposure (63% of brown spots are due to the sun).

The aging process:
Intrinsic cutaneous aging is combined with atony, skin dryness and pigmentary disorders. Melanin density increases and becomes irregular; this is why pigmentation marks appear. The main pigmentary disorder is liver spots, also called “aging spots”, which appear towards age fifty.

Genetic predispositions:
Some people are genetically predisposed to pigmentation marks, such as certain ethnic groups whose skin is more yellow, more olive or darker

Hormonal imbalances:
Some hormonal variations can cause a disruption in melanin synthesis. Therefore, hyperpigmented areas can appear during pregnancy, menopause or with endocrine diseases.

Reactions after taking medication:
In some people, certain medicines or antibiotics (such as tetracycline) can cause the appearance of pigmentation marks. This can also occur after chemotherapy or radiation therapy treatments. Generally, spots resulting from these treatments disappear within six months.

Cell hypertoxicity:
For example, topical application of a synthetic perfume followed by sun exposure makes cells hypertoxic and can cause spots to appear. The same effect occurs after using certain essential oil.

The new Biologique Recehrche Lotion P50 PIGM 400 can help address many of these issues. Paul Labrecque is an authorized Biologique Recherche Skincare Spa with more than 20 plus years of experience.

Paul In The Press: Helping People Avoid These Big Beauty Mistakes

Posted on October 05, 2016 by Clare Lee | 0 comments

Thanks again to Good Housekeeping for sharing the advice of Paul Labrecque and staff with their readers in 15 Big Beauty Mistakes -- And How to Fix Them. The more good news we can share about living beautifully, the better the world is. And anytime we can help someone STOP doing a terrible “beauty” habit, the world gets even better.

Beauty mistakes sometimes seem unavoidable. That sudden chipped nail after a night on the town (usually after months of meticulous care) can be a spoiler before a meeting the next morning. A looming burn smell after trying six times to get that one pesky curl to straighten can be just as bad. The list can go on and on, but what good does that do us? We’re ready for some solutions!

Check out the entire article on Good Housekeeping to learn the 15 biggest mistakes (link above), and keep reading to learn Paul Labrecque’s expert tips and solutions for a few of the hair mistakes.

Paul Labrecque’s Advice To Avoid These Beauty Blunders

Problem: Using hot tools too much

Solution: Keep the heat setting on medium, never hold the hot tool in the same place for more than two seconds, and use a heat protectant product.

Problem: Brushing your hair too hard

Solution: Find the brush that is right for your hair. Boar bristle brushes are recommended because they are made from hair, making them more porous and better for the natural scalp oils and nutrients.

Problem: Green hair after a swim

Solution: Do not use bleach before or after swimming.

Press Alert: Paul Labrecque Discusses The Top Fall Hair Colors

Posted on October 03, 2016 by Clare Lee | 0 comments

Check out the Good Housekeeping post We Tried 6 of Fall’s Biggest Hair Color Trends - Here’s How They Look to see the before and after photos of the three makeover models described above. You’ll love the radiant glow each and every one of them emits.

Which Fall Hair Colors Are Trending?

Deep Eggplant

Hunt for those lavish and rich purples to bring out the true autumnal goddess within. Cameron can be seen before the change rockin’ some bright color on her beautiful curls. She came to Paul Labrecque’s Salon and Spa ready for the eggplant purple, a color, the article says, that is a unique way to go dark for the cooler days ahead. With a warning from Cameron to specially care for her curls, Paul Labrecque was able to bleach, mix, dye, shampoo, and style her hair in this great and bold fall color.

Delicate Babylights

For women not in the mood for a bold eggplant switch, Paul Labrecque recommends the delicate babylights as seen on Laurie. To achieve a subtle makeover, Paul Labrecque lifted her natural brown hair with high lift color from L’Oreal and a balayage technique. The simple ombre can be metaphoric for transitioning from summer to fall to winter. Laurie’s ends are darker and thicker looking, which are perfect for the cold winter ahead!

Sun-Kissed Ombre

Reign in summer a little longer with this light and fun fall 2016 hair trend: the sun-kissed ombre. From her brunette beginnings to this sun-kissed ombre, it is clear that Stephanie made the right choice. The honey golden blonde color in the balayage method is a style that can last through the decades. It has been trending for years, and we don’t see it going anywhere soon!

Paul Labrecque Salon & Spa is a certified L'Oreal INOA Hair Color Salon. Awarded one of "New York's Best" all our Color Specialist are professionally trained and certified by L'Oreal and the INOA Ammonia Free Color System.

In The Press: Which Eyebrow Treatment Is Right For You?

Posted on September 27, 2016 by Paul Labrecque | 0 comments

Eyebrows are our source for expression. They’re the key to a good surprised look, a look of seduction, a look of happiness, or a look of disdain. Eyebrows grow in all shapes, sizes, and colors, but it doesn’t mean they have to stay that way. Recently, Byrdie published an article “From Tinting to Tattooing: How to Know Which Eyebrow Treatment is Right for You,” featuring brow guru Marlena Orlowska of Paul Labrecque Salon and Spa.

While other experts in the article talk about trimming, tweezing, waxing, threading, microblading, extensions, and more, Orlowska discusses eyebrow tinting.

Eyebrow tinting gives a fuller look.

Eyebrow tinting is perfect for men and women who desire a fuller brow. Instead of tweezing, trimming, threading, or shaping, tinting leaves the hair where it is and adds to it with a makeup masterpiece. Tinting adds an extra dimension.

It works well with fine, transparent hair.

Tinting eyebrow hair works best with fine brow hairs. The semi permanent vegetable dye used in tinting at Paul Labrecque Salon and Spa sticks only to the hair, so this treatment works well when there is hair to dye. It will not fill in any gaps by coloring the skin.

Tinting lasts as long as three months.

Brow tinting is an affordable eyebrow treatment, lasting anywhere between one and three months for only $15 on average. It’s best when performed by a professional because brow tinting is actually illegal in some places.

Read the full Byrdie article to learn more about the different eyebrow treatments and tricks to get the expression you desire.

Trouble with thinning hair, ladies? Tips To Trick That Thinning Hair

Posted on September 17, 2016 by Paul Labrecque | 0 comments

Trouble with thinning hair, ladies? You're not alone in your search for sexy amidst your days of new beauty treatment regimes. Paul Labrecque said it best in a recent article for PRiME Women Magazine, "Thinning hair with age may be at the top of my list of pet peeves!"

The good news is that even with the days of estrogen replacement behind us, we are able to treat, disguise, and live with thinning hair.

Solutions For Treating Thinning Hair


Illude yourself and others away from the truthfully thinning hair atop your head to a beautiful and full look. Paul advises, "My job is to let you come to the realization that in the midst of a thinning cycle, you like the memory of long hair. However, maybe your long hair is aiding in exasperating the fall out."

He recommends layers to give movement or a bob to give the appearance of full ends.


Take a stroll down memory lane, and picture your hair color throughout your lifetime. Were you a brunette with sunkissed highlights? Were you a natural blond or redhead who was always searching for the extra color lift? No matter the natural color, Paul Labrecque says ombre and other balayage color styles are the way to detract the eye from the bare scalp exposed by thinning hair to the beautiful ends that are kissed with color.
