Fibroblasts

What are fibroblasts?

Fibroblasts are the most common cells of connective tissue, housed in skin, tendons and other tissues.

Connective tissue is responsible for some of the functions of padding, support, elasticity and protection.

The function of fibroblasts is to secrete collagen proteins to maintain the structure of many tissues. They are also involved in wound healing.

Over the years, like other cells, fibroblasts lose their capacity, in this case to produce collagen and other substances. This involves changes in the texture, luminosity and tone of the skin, which accentuates the signs of aging.

It has been shown that after the age of 40, the body loses approximately 1% of collagen per year.

Fibroblastic stimulation

In view of the functioning of fibroblasts, fibroblast stimulation helps to accelerate wound and scar healing while improving skin structure.

Stimulation of fibroblasts is generated by increased production of collagen and elastin.

In aesthetics, the treatment with or on fibroblasts, allows to rejuvenate the skin by enhancing its regeneration.

However, since to stimulate fibroblasts it is necessary to penetrate into the dermis, this is a complex action, since many active ingredients that could act have molecular weights higher than the skin allows.

In the face of these conditions, few treatments are shown to be effective in targeting fibroblasts.

Some professionals talk about oxygen therapy or dermalifting as possible options, but the reality is that only electroporation is capable of penetrating to the dermiswith highly concentrated active ingredients.
