Biologique Rercherche Arrives On Melrose Place

August 12, 2022

Biologique Rercherche has arrived!!

Through its first flagship U.S. Ambassade, the French brand known for personalized skin care brings its complete face, body, and scalp care expertise to a single and exclusive location in Los Angeles.

Biologique Recherche is HERE, on Melrose Place. Biologique Recherche’s unique methodology, proprietary skin diagnostics, and full range of products and hyper-personalized treatments for face, body, and scalp. You know – the cult goodness like no other.

Founded in the late 1970s by a family of artisanal skincare experts, Biologique Recherche built its reputation for effectiveness through a visionary approach based on a customized methodology of cosmetic treatments adapted to every Skin Instant© and products with a high concentration of active ingredients.

The Biologique Recherche Ambassade, a concept created by founder Yvan Allouche, represents the pinnacle of the brand’s expertise. Like a country’s embassy, this Ambassade serves as the exclusive, exceptional representation of Biologique Recherche in the US. The elite Ambassade worldwide network shares irreproachable values, passion, and success, to deliver exceptional customized skincare services.

Like the historic Biologique Recherche Ambassade on the Champs-Elysées in Paris, the West Coast is getting its first exclusive U.S. flagship to deliver the essence of the brand’s know-how, from its proprietary skin diagnostics to ultra-personalized treatments for the face, body, and scalp, as well as the exclusive full range of retail products. The Biologique Recherche LA Ambassade is the culmination of the brand’s specialized skills, high standards and extensive experience.


We have an elite international network of Biologique Recherche Ambassade locations in Europe and Asia” says Rupert Schmid and Pierre-Louis Delapalme, co-chairmen of Biologique Recherche. “We’re proud to expand this roster with our first-ever flagship U.S. location and bring the full Biologique Recherche experience to Los Angeles.”

The full Biologique Recherche experience is built on the unique three stage methodology that hyper- personalizes each treatment based on individual skin needs.

The Assessment Stage is Stage 1 in the methodology and uses the proprietary diagnostic Skin Instant© Lab tool to analyze and determine a person’s Skin Instant©, which is the condition of the skin at the time of assessment. The VisioLab© tool takes a high-resolution photograph and offers an even more finely tuned analysis.

To go even further with the Assessment Stage, Biologique Recherche offers the My Beauty DNA© test that assesses skin on a genetic level and provides an overview of your genetic predispositions. With the My Beauty DNA© testing kit, Biologique Recherche is able to analyze 14 skin characteristics linked to aging, sensitivity, exposure to the sun and environmental factors, and the skin profile. This analysis enables better understanding of each individual’s genetic predispositions and the “inherited” needs of their skin, which are invisible to other diagnostic instruments.

Stage 2 is the Initialization Stage, and it begins with individualized preparation of the epidermis that includes thoroughly cleansing the skin, combined with a massage, and preparing the skin using the brand’s iconic Lotion P50.

Stage 3 is the Treatment Stage, which uses hyper-customized products to “recondition” the epidermis and over time, improve skin quality and leads to a radiant complexion. To complete each treatment, the Ambassade offers additions like the Remodeling Face® and Remodeling Face® Chin enhancements.


The interior architecture was entrusted to Joanne de Lépinay, a French designer who worked on the original Paris Ambassade, to bring the same Parisian spirit to the Ambassade in Los Angeles.

We wanted to create a very authentic French experience with an elegant Parisian aesthetic. We took elements from the original Paris Ambassade to extend the authenticity of the brand and create continuity. All the millwork is custom made and the furniture is directly from Europe” says Margot Humbert, General Manager of Biologique Recherche USA.

The space was specially designed to accommodate the Biologique Recherche treatment protocols. A cozy elegant atmosphere combined with superb technical facilities offers the ultimate experience in holistic beauty. The brand’s blue, white and gold colors make up the interior and furnishings, with an added touch of sophistication that’s pure Biologique Recherche.

The Biologique Recherche Ambassade is open seven days a week from 10 am to 6pm. It is located at 8461 Melrose Pl, Los Angeles, CA 90069.


Biologique Recherche’s methodology is based on over forty years of experience using unique exclusive treatment protocols that are personalized to suit each Skin Instant©.

Suitable for both men and women, the methodology encompasses three fundamental stages:

Stage 1: Assessment Stage

Your Biologique Recherche skin expert will start by undertaking a detailed diagnosis of your skin. Using the Skin Instant© Lab, supplemented by the VisioLab© and a detailed questionnaire, they will define your individual Skin Instant©. This assessment then enables them to recommend a personalized beauty treatment.

Stage 2: Initialization Stage

The treatment protocol begins by preparing your epidermis, which acts as a shield to protect from external aggressions. This rigorous ritual will ready your skin to receive the benefits of your treatment through:

  • Thorough cleansing of your skin, including our exclusive welcoming massage
  • Exfoliating and balancing your skin with our iconic Lotion P50, followed by a customized booster and face mask

Stage 3: Treatment Stage

Products containing the highest concentrations of active ingredients are applied to “re-condition” the epidermis, helping activate its capacity for auto-regeneration:

  • A tailor-made cocktail of precisely targeted, authentic serums is applied by the Biologique Recherche expert
  • The treatment and finishing stage fixes and optimizes the beauty treatment’s efficacy through the use of botanical and marine biological active ingredients, creams and finishing serums to suit your skin type and its needs

These active ingredients work progressively to improve your skin’s elasticity and firmness, defining your face’s natural contours.


The Biologique Recherche products we use in our beauty treatments all follow very specific criteria:

  • Formulas are high in active ingredients and made with fragrance-free natural or biotechnological ingredients
  • To improve the synergistic absorption of active ingredients, the esthetician complements manual stimulation with the use of our Remodeling Face©machine to produce exceptional instant results and long-lasting benefits.

Facial and Body treatments are tailored to the needs of your Skin Instant© by one of our Biologique Recherche experts. The longer your skincare treatment is, the more specific techniques and additional treatments can be added to give you the best experience.
