Fibroblasts and Aging Skin

Fibroblasts are skin cells that produce collagen and play a key role in the continued health of your skin.

Collagen provides firmness and structure to the skin and is essential in supporting the dermis (or middle layer) of the skin. The dermis is a supportive and elastic connective tissue. It is here where fibroblasts are found.

The aging process

As we age, our fibroblasts reduce in number and the collagen matrix that makes up most of the dermis breaks down. This creates an imbalance that causes the dermis to become less stretchable, less resilient, more lax, and prone to wrinkling.
