BioMeca® proposes to study tissue surface tension with confocal microscopy, by analysing fluorescent beads movements after topical application of a product.
Biological models: skin explant
Readouts: vector images of beads displacements and quantitative graphics about beads position

How to prove smoothing effect of active ingredient or finished product ex vivo ?
Skin mobilization is the result of the different mobility capacities of the skin and its underlying structures.
When the skin is stretched and mobilized, there is an elastic restoring force opposite to the axis of tension, which tends to return the skin to its previous state. From these opposing forces, tension and stress forces arise.
