Labo Facial Lifting Treatment
- Helps to reduce the laxity of the skin on the chinline and neck.
- Creates a Mechanical and a Biological Effect.
- Contains Lifteina, a patented formula used to give the lifting effect.
The Facial Lifting | First Third of the Face, Submental Area and Neck is a dermo-cosmetic preparation for a lifting effect on skin laxity that helps reduce the appearance of sagging signs on the facial features of the lower part of the face and on the neck, for the contours to appear tauter and more lifted. The Facial Lifting contains Lifteina Complex (Swiss Patent CH 712 905) consisting of 9 ingredients whose absorption is supported by Labo Skin Technology: 2 of them play a mechanical effect and the remaining 7 a dermo-cosmetic biological effect.
These components work synergistically and specifically on the skin of the first (lower) third of the face, the submental area and the neck. Ingredients with mechanical effect: 1,6-Alpha-Linked Maltotriose (skin absorption 70.5%) and Silicate (65.8%) play a tightening effect on the skin (in vitro test) for reducing the appearance of the skin laxity. Ingredients with dermo-cosmetic biological effect: Glycine (skin absorption 75.9%), Proline (51.5%), and Alanine (22.4%) are amino acids supplied since they are natural building components for collagen molecules; Tripeptide-10 Citrulline (80.4%) is a peptide that helps regulate the skin texture; DMAE (54.3%), 3-Aminopropane Sulfonic Acid (44.1%) and Acetyl Tetrapeptide-2 (73.4%) play a tightening effect, thus contributing to the appearance of a more toned skin. The absorption of each ingredient has been tested by means of Franz Cells at 24 hours.
The product shall be used for 16 consecutive days, by applying the Gel (30 ml bottle + dispenser/applicator) once a day in the evening just before bedtime, and the Dense Cream (15 ml) the morning after. Applying the product in the evening is particularly important for a thorough effect during the night, when the skin of the face is at rest.
Labo Facial Lifting preparations are available in 3 grades, for targeting different stages of sagging signs*:
- Lifting 1: mild sagging and skin laxity
- Lifting 2: moderate sagging and skin laxity Lifting
- Lifting 3: severe sagging and skin laxity
*Results may vary depending on individual conditions. After the first 16 days of application, it is possible to keep applying the Facial Lifting Dense Cream, which comes also separately, in a 50 ml tube, to help preserve the results.
1 oz, .5 oz
1,6-Alpha–Linked Maltotriose is Pullulan (Pullulan is the INCI Name), a molecule that, just after the application on the skin, forms a network at skin surface that is responsible for the immediate shrinking and recompacting effect, with subsequent immediate lifting effect. However, Pullulan can also be absorbed by the skin and reach the dermis. Its absorption and the reaching of the dermis is promoted by 3 enhancers, belonging to the Patent on Labo Skin Technology No. 711 466, namely Pentylene Glycol, Decylene Glycol, Caprylyl Glycol. The Absorption Test conducted by means of Franz Cells (Report E. Ex07-MS04 2016/1896 dated 28/07/2016) showed an overall absorption percentage of Pullulan, in both epidermis and dermis, equal to 70.5%. The portion of Pullulan that reaches the dermis binds to dermal collagen forming a supporting scaffold that restores tissues’ firmness and compactness for a long time. This is the “”mechanical”” effect in the medium and long term, which is added to the medium and long term effect performed by the molecules playing a dermo-cosmetic “”biological”” activity, that work synergistically on the structures of the dermis (Glycine, Proline, Alanine; Tripeptide-10 Citrulline; DMAE; 3-Aminopropane Sulfonic Acid; Acetyl Tetrapeptide-2).

How to Apply
In the evening, clean the skin of the face thoroughly. Open the bottle of the gel by removing the metal seal and the rubber cap. Draw up 0.75 ml of product with the specific graduated dispenser/applicator and release it on the palm of the hand. Spread half of it on the right and half on the left side of the neck. Then draw up another 0.75 ml of product, release it on the palm of the hand and spread half of it on the right cheek and half on the left cheek (fig. 1). Spread a uniform layer of product on neck, submental area and lower part of the face with movements from the center of the neck towards the nape (fig. 2), the tip of the chin (fig. 3) and the temples (fig. 4). Do not massage. Repeat the procedure every 24 hours, in the evening, for 16 consecutive nights. Rinse the dispenser/applicator with lukewarm water after every use. Close the bottle with the cap provided with the box. After your daily facial cleansing, in the morning, proceed with the application of the Dense Cream on the lower part of the face, on the submental area and on the neck.
