Collagen in Aesthetic medicine
As we age, there is a natural decline in collagen production. There is also an increase in the enzyme collagenase which breaks collagen down.
This results in an overall decrease in the amount of collagen in the dermis. Another factor contributing to decreased collagen levels is free radicals from UV exposure. Areas with less support begin to cave in and wrinkles begin to form. The destruction of collagen is a major contribution to the loss of skin suppleness and structure that occurs with advancing age.
