The goal of this technique is to increase the biosynthetic capacity of fibroblasts, inducing the reconstruction of an optimal physiologic environment, facilitating interaction between cells, and increasing collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid (HA) production [1, 2].

The desired final effect is a firm, bright, and moisturized skin. A
