Our founder Gigi Howard started getting chest wrinkles in her late 20’s. After trying every solution on the market with no results, Gigi set out to create her own. When a doctor friend introduced her to medical grade silicone, which has been proven to heal scars, Gigi knew she had found the “magic” ingredient! It took over 180 prototypes, 2 clinical trials and 4 years of development to get the SiO patch just right and in July 2016 SiO introduced its first product, the SiO ChestLift. New shapes followed over the next 2 years. Made of 100% medical grade silicone, SiO patches are comfortable to wear and reusable. They create a microclimate that allows the skin to rehydrate itself which reduces the appearance of existing fine lines and wrinkles after just a few hours of wear. The patches also prevent new wrinkles from forming by keeping the skin in place through gentle compression. In January 2020, SiO introduced its latest anti-aging technology, the SIO Cryosystem. First there is the SiO Cryodrop, a breakthrough skin-toning tool that uses the power of cold therapy and massage to visibly reduce redness, pore size and puffiness. Then there is the SiO Energy Serum, packed with skin-soothing, hydrating actives, and features innovative cooling technology to refresh the skin and fight visible signs of aging. The diamagnetic technology in the Cryodrop works with the diamagnetic ingredients in the Energy Serum to improve the skin’s ability to absorb the serum’s ingredients, making it a powerful duo.
