Facelift : aging process
The skin belongs to the integumentary system, which provides several functions: sensory communication, protection of our organism, regulation of body temperature and also production of vitamin D, essential for the proper development of osteogenesis. Wrapping the whole body, the skin occupies 16% of our total weight. It is made up of three layers; epidermis, dermis and hypodermis, and is composed of water, proteins, fat and mineral salts.
Epidermis role is protecting water reserves to ensure good hydration of the skin. With age, ceramides become less functional, hydration gradually decreases and cells are renewed less and less. The dermal-epidermal junction, also called the epidermal basement membrane, loses its natural undulations, which reduces exchanges between skin compartments.
Other changes triggered in the dermis are manifested by a decrease in collagen and elastin production, hyaluronic acid decrease, and also by compactness loss of the extra-cellular matrix. All these mutations are associated with aging process which continually promotes skin slackening and the appearance of wrinkles.The face, our first interface of communication with others, undergoes like all other body organs the unsightly consequences of aging.
