Breakdown of collagen prevented; synthesis of new, quality collagen.

"An extensive, rigorous scientific study proves that mechanical stimulation helps the skin produce hyaluronic acid."¹

Prof. Philippe Humbert, head of the Dermatology Department at the University Hospital of Besancon and Director of the Skin Study and Research Center, tells us about the study conducted with LPG's new facial technology: the Ergolift treatment head.

This study is based on an analysis of biopsies² from 20 subjects who were treated on half of their face.

How does the new Ergolift technology help treat skin aging?

After analyzing the biopsies, we could see how fibroblasts were able to move and secrete substances in the skin that decrease as we grow older: collagen which makes the skin firmer, elastin which makes it elastic, and hyaluronic acid which keeps it hydrated. We demonstrated that the new treatment head had a very effective impact on the major causes of skin aging.

    • Collagen degradation was stemmed while already fragmented collagen was removed twice as fast, resulting in the synthesis of new, endogenous helpful collagen that redensifies the dermis (firmness improved +23%) and smoothes wrinkles on the skin surface (-21% wrinkles).
    • The natural synthesis of elastic fibers increased by 46%² to improve the skin's suppleness.
    • And the unexpected discovery: the natural hyaluronic acid synthesis increased by 80%², effectively restoring the skin's volume.

It was interesting to see how coordinated mechanical stimulation changed the phenotypic behavior of fibroblasts and their ability to produce extracellular matrix. These results prove that this technology acts deep within the dermis and brings visible results to the surface of the skin. It is truly a new, effective approach that makes a name for itself alongside other types of skin aging solutions.
