It’s official – fibroblasts hold the key to skin regeneration.
Fibroblasts are a type of cell that is found in the connective tissue of the body’s organs. Here, they produce proteins such as collagen – and most of us have heard something about how important collagen is in keeping our skin looking fresh and young.
They are the key to skin rejuvenation and, here at Aesthetics of Essex, where we are always determined to boost our knowledge of what treatments are available, we know that fibroblasts are the cell that is targeted in virtually every skin rejuvenation treatment performed.
Now for the science-y bit! By clicking the copyrighted link below you can read all about how scientists at Kings College identified two different kinds of fibroblasts – a discovery that is extremely interesting to people who work at clinics such as ours, and to our clients. Kings College Scientists
And there’s more about fibroblasts here (from news-medical.net) here: News Medical Link Dr Ananya Mandal, MD, reiterates how fibroblasts make the ‘extracellular matrix’ and collagen and explains how, together, the extracellular matrix and collagen form the structural framework of tissues in animals (including us!) and play a vital role in tissue repair.
But what does all this mean to you if you are thinking of coming to our clinic? What you need to know is that, whatever treatments you are having, our top priority is your safety and wellbeing. You will be thoroughly guided and advised during our free consultations, so don’t hesitate to get in touch.
