Fibroblasts are the machines within the dermis layer of our skin that produce collagen and elastin in a lattice formation, embedded in a thick gel (glycosaminoglycans – GAGS) just as it was laid down when you were a fetus. Collagen gives your skin strength and elastin enables your skin to stretch and bounce back.
As We Age
As we age, the fibroblasts within the dermis naturally become less active and exposure to sunlight compromises them even further, meaning less collagen and elastin are being produced.
Therefore, the subcutaneous layer of the skin starts to sag as this layer no longer provides the necessary support to the skin.
Since less collagen and elastin are produced by the fibroblasts, the skin becomes thinner and the she epidermis starts losing its natural moisturizing factors. As the epidermis sags, wrinkles and fine lines form and become visible on the surface of the skin.
Skin Secrets offers various treatments for Collagen Induction Therapy which will allow you to grow new, healthy skin.
I am really happy with the outcome! Many of my friends have complimented on how vibrant I look, before knowing I had any work done, so that made me feel confident again! My husband is all smiles. Can’t wait to see this extremely professional team again!
Wonderful first time experience with Botox, and the best results I could have hoped for!! I’m absolutely thrilled with my results and I wish I hadn’t waited so long.
I use to commute downtown Vancouver for all of my skincare and beauty needs until I discovered Skin Secrets. I’ve become a regular client and have since referred my friends/family too. It’s the best kept secret in Fort Langley!
