Good news for wrinkles: when the skin-massaging device helps cells to regenerate
Research & Innovation

L’Oréal scientists pushed further the boundaries of the anti-ageing innovation: they explored the mechanobiology processes, measured the effects of mechanical stimuli on skin cells, and designed a massaging device.

This exploration study was published in PLOS ONE on the 1st of March, 2017: “Effects of a skin-massaging device on the ex-vivo expression of human dermis proteins and in vivo facial wrinkles.”

With age, the skin loses its stiffness and elasticity. The wrinkles and sagging are the most visible part of the ageing process.

In order to fight this process, or at least help the skin cells to regenerate more, the Research teams traditionally innovated anti-ageing creams and skin-care solutions.

The next step was to come up with a complementary massaging device. The use of such a device clearly led to higher rated of expression of the dermis (skin) proteins.

The scientists measured both by combining the anti-ageing cream and the device, in vivo and ex vivo stimulations.

The mechanical stimulus of the skin massage has been proven as a new and complementary anti-ageing response, and very beneficial to the skin condition. Good news for wrinkles: they can now be decreased thanks to a 2-in-1 (cream and massage) fabulous treat.
