The inspiration behind Alchimie Forever is two-fold, beginning with Dr. Barbara Polla’s idea that taking care of one’s skin should be viewed as an essential ritual instead of a chore, telling her four daughters that “looking good, means feeling good, means doing good.” This belief established itself as the brand’s philosophy, strengthened by Dr. Luigi Polla’s use of lasers, which led to his keen understanding that how a person looks is vitally important to their overall well-being. Alchimie Forever blends both doctors’ appreciation for skincare as a ritual and their expertise in anti-aging to provide an at-home / at-spa experience unlike any other.
Looking good. Means feeling good. Means doing good.
Dr. Luigi Polla is a world-renowned dermatologist recognized as the first medical doctor to introduce pulsed dye laser technology to Europe. His pioneering treatment of children suffering from skin issues such as hemangiomas and port wine stains eventually led to the use of pulsed dye laser technology in the aesthetic treatment of adults.
Dr. Barbara Polla is biomedical researcher specializing in internal medicine, pneumology, immuno-allergy and anti-aging technologies. Her extensive work with heat shock (stress) proteins, the oxidant/ antioxidant balance and iron chelation, published in 150+ peer-reviewed medical journals, is the foundation of our anti-aging product formulation.
In 1997, Dr. Barbara and Dr. Luigi Polla combined their knowledge of and passion for healthy, youthful skin by establishing the first fully integrated European medical day spa known as the Forever Laser Institut. This became the starting point for Alchimie Forever, manifested through Dr. Luigi Polla’s earliest personalized formulations to ensure optimal rejuvenation results for his patients, both immediately post-procedure and at-home.
