Serum Matriciel Visage is a targeted skin care product that improves the structure and volume of the face. This immediate tightening effect improves the skin’s tone and tension by visibly reducing the signs of aging. Its formula combats the effects of gravity and the atrophy of fat and muscle tissues to rebalance the cheekbone area, cheeks and jowls, neck and oval of the face.
I have used up two bottles and this matriciel visage has worked to tone and lift my face contours, leaving my skin firm, smooth and supple. Let us drive into its active ingredients and learnt how they benefit our skin. Definitely one product you shouldn't have missed.
1. Restructuring platform
Glycoproteins from Antarctic Microorganisms
This glycoprotein is formed by microorganisms capable of surviving the extreme conditions of the cold, dark depths of Antarctic glaciers. Its cryoprotective properties protect skin from drying. It also stimulates collagen and elastin production to restructure the epidermis. This helps maintain the skin’s integrity, even in extreme conditions. Skin is protected, regenerated, restructured and smoother. Wrinkle depth is reduced.
Rye Extract Derived from rye grains
This extract contributes to firming and smoothing the skin tissue, tightening the skin and increasing its tone. It stimulates the synthesis of retractile elements (fibers capable of contracting such as fibroblast) that generate the tensile strength essential for regulating the mechanical resistance of the dermis. Thus, it tightens the fibrous network of the skin and restores its bounce. It has a long-lasting firming action.
Knotgrass Extract Knotgrass
A wild plant from the Polygonaceae family and its extract is rich in flavonoids. It inhibits the activity of an enzyme that changes extracellular tissues when exposed to UV rays. These changes lead to premature skin aging (loss of firmness and elasticity). This extract protects skin from photo-aging and helps preserve the extracellular matrix.
The peony is a plant found in various regions from Europe to the Far East. Its roots are rich in oligosaccharides. This extract fights premature skin aging by regulating and controlling cell communication. By blocking harmful exchanges between the dermis and hypodermis, it helps preserve adipocytes, thereby increasing the skin’s thickness and density to restore facial volume.
A tetrapeptide is a peptide made of four amino acids connected by peptide bonds. This tetrapeptide increases skin firmness by stimulating production of extracellular matrix proteins such as collagen, elastin, fibronectin and laminin. It helps stimulate cell renewal and restores the skin’s biomechanical properties.
2. Anti-gravity platform
This molecule, made up of a peptide bound to a lipophilic chain, stimulates the synthesis of elastin by the fibroblasts and restores the 3D configuration of elastic fibers. The elastin produced forms functional fibers that enable the skin to regain its elasticity and density. It helps improve the skin’s viscoelasticity, lift the facial features and increase resistance to gravityinduced deformation
This tetrapeptide acts on the skin’s elasticity and firmness to minimize sagging on the face. It stimulates elastin synthesis and increases the activity of enzymes responsible for correct assembly of elastin fibers. It also stimulates synthesis of collagen types 1, 4, 6 and 16 and increases skin cohesion.
3. Tensor platform
Cassava (Manihot Esculenta) is a perennial shrub from the Euphorbiaceae family native to the southwest of the Amazon Basin in South America. The sugar extracted from cassava creates molecular networks that anchor, spread and rapidly form a viscoelastic film on the skin surface to improve the skin’s micro-surface. This active ingredient has an immediate surface impact, significantly lifting and improving the appearance of wrinkles while pulling up the cheeks to resculpt the facial contour.
Marine Exopolysaccharide (anti-wrinkle)
This active ingredient is secreted by a planktonic microorganism found in the Iroise Sea. It stimulates collagen and elastin synthesis to improve skin’s firmness and elasticity. It also has a tightening effect on the network of collagen fibers for an immediate, long-lasting lifting effect (starting after 15 minutes). Skin is smoother and wrinkles are filled.
Complex Made From Hyaluronic Acid and Rhizobium
This complex consists of hyaluronic acid, a natural constituent of the dermis, and gel produced by rhizobium, a symbiotic bacterium in sunflowers. With its high molecular weight (>1 Mda), hyaluronic acid remains on the surface of the skin to enhance its barrier function against harsh external factors, and to keep water in the superficial layers of the epidermis. Combined with rhizobium gel, this complex helps create a supple and flexible protective film on the surface of the skin, which regulates perspiration. In addition, it acts as a water reservoir, restoring the skin’s water requirements to regulate its hydration and guarantee its structural integrity.
▪ Tightens the features
▪ Firms the epidermis
▪ Enhances the volume of the cheeks
▪ Increases the viscoelasticity of the skin tissue
▪ Restores the structure and volume of the face
Sérum Matriciel Visage uses more than 10 active ingredients to address one of the most complex and inevitable skincare problems: progressive sagging of the face. It has a triple effect: Intensified volumes and filled facial hollows, Tightened surface, Improved epidermis/dermis/hypodermis communication. It provides immediate and lasting results on the cheeks, jowls, neck and oval of the face.
