Skin ageing

Skin ageing is the inevitable weakening of the structure of the dermis. On the surface, the skin dries out and wrinkles begin to appear. The supporting fibres in the dermis deteriorate and do not renew themselves properly. The dermis loses its substance, the skin sags and wrinkles form.

This word belongs to the category Signs of age, wrinkles, firmness.
