GUERLAIN Orchidee Imperiale Serum (Skincare)
FOR 15 YEARS, THANKS TO THE ORCHIDARIUM, A RESEARCH PLATFORM UNIQUE IN THE WORLD,
GUERL AIN HAS BEEN UNCOVERING THE ORCHIDS’ SECRETS OF LONGEVIT Y AND OFFERING THEM TO WOMEN TO FORESTALL THE VISIBLE SIGNS OF TIME.
Today, Guerlain is once again pushing back the limits of cellular longevity with its first serum that targets the initial
area of youthful volume for denser, beautifully enhanced skin.
THE PAPILL ARY DERMIS, THE INITIAL AREA OF YOUTHFUL VOLUME
The papillary dermis – the superficial area of the dermis – is made up of a dense network of filler and structural
proteins, particularly concentrated in collagen and elastin fibres. It contributes to the skin’s elasticity, resilience and
Recent scientific advances have demonstrated that this area essential for facial volume is surrounded by an
environment that is highly hypoxic, i.e. lacking in oxygen.
The result: this support fibre network breaks down and triggers skin slackening. This destruction of the papillary
dermis and the associated loss of support is behind a domino effect in terms of ageing: loss of facial density
and volume causes an acceleration in the visible signs of ageing – poorly defined facial contours, deep wrinkles
and enlarged pores.
To maintain the skin’s youthfulness, you must therefore target the papillary dermis to fight against the slackening
of the support fibres and restore facial volume.
