If it’s good enough for the likes of Madonna, Jennifer Lopez and Jennifer Connelly it is good enough for us, is what we say. The plumped up faces and the hour-glass figures these divas boast of we are told, in part atleast is because of the French-based cosmetic line Biologique Recherche, founded by biologist Ivan Alush in Paris.

The Embassy of Beauty (the medical spa which opened its door in May last year in Marina is still going through its soft launch period) boasts a wide array of services including caviar facials and skin remodelling machines well suited to the playground of the rich and the famous.

Behind the unassuming white door (hidden in one corner of a private cark park in the Marina area) lies an oasis of calm and beauty – with its signature luxury style the brand is famous world-wide for – be it Paris, New York, Moscow or Milan.

And one look at Cosmetologist Dr Julia Mescheryakova – with her porcelain complexion and dewy skin - assure you that you are in safe hands. Her over ten years of experience comes through in the soft, nearly wistful touches of her soft hands as she scrutinises your skin closely before she emabarks on a skin booster treatment. Following a deft cleansing that feels more like a soft feathery touch on your face, Dr Julia embarks on a lymphatic drainage massage with Biologique Recherche VIP02 milk – that might seem a bit funny initially, till you get used to the fluttering movements of fingers on your face. After the entire face area is covered, she moves on to apply what is possibly the most popular product of the brand – Lotion P50W – to exfoliate dead skin. A concentrate booster is then applied to plump up the skin followed by a moisturising masque to hydrate and revitalise the skin.

The whole treatment takes about an hour and a half at the end of which you step out with a brighter revitalized skin that can give any celebrity a run for their money.

The Embassy of Beauty is located in Dubai Marina, Marina Sail Building (04-4324909)
