Skin structure and ageing factors

Skin structure

In the process of skin ageing, fibroblasts are playing a key role.
They synthesise the supportive structure in the skin, producing two main proteins: collagen and elastin.

Aged skin: as the skin ages, collagen and elastin degenerate and fibroblast activity is reduced.

fibroblast


Fibroblast
- fibroblasts produce collagen, which is the major structural protein in the skin.

elastin


E
lastin - fibres that are loosely arranged in all directions in the dermis and provide elasticity to the skin.

collagen

 

 Collagen fibres that make up  a majority of the intra-cellular  matrix of the dermis and  impact the skin’s toughness  and strength.

Skin ageing factors

We can find different effects in the skin depending on the type of aging factors
