Skin structure and ageing factors

Skin structure

Fibroblasts play a key role in the skin ageing process. 
They synthesise the supportive structure in the skin, producing two main proteins: collagen and elastin .

Young, healthy skin

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

Mature skin:  after significant degeneration.


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


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



 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

Different factors affect skin ageing

CHRONOAGEING (INTRINSIC AGEING) • Volume loss • Texture alteration • Dryer skin

PHOTOAGEING (DUE TO SUNLIGHT) • Elastic tissue degeneration – sagging • Pigmentation disorders – lighter skin & blemishes

MECHANICAL AGEING (EXPRESSION LINES) • Forehead transversal wrinkles • Glabella lines • Crow’s feet • Upper lip lines
