Collagen Loss

Collagen is one of the important support structures found naturally in our skin

What happens to collagen as we age?

As the ageing skin loses its structural proteins (collagen and elastin), it becomes more lax and begins to sag, which contributes to a tired and aged look.

Decrease in the level of collagen
Changes in histological characteristics (collagen fibers distribution)
Changes in ultrastructure (collagen network disorganisation)
Fragmentation of fibrils, fibroblast can no longer bind
