Silicon is a regulating and binding element that intervenes in the composition of the dermis, normalises the metabolism and orders cell division. It stimulates the mitosis of fibroblasts and inhibits the formation of free radicals. It is an essential constitutional element of the connective tissue and is present in elastin, collagen, proteoglycans and glycoproteins. It acts as a tissue regenerator that easily penetrates the skin. It is not accumulative, has an anti-wrinkle and lipolytic effect and is thus the preferred treatment in lipodystrophies when a direct stimulation of lipolysis is required.
