Skin Aging and Fibroblast Features with a Focus on Mechanical Forces

Dr. Laurence Michel, from Hôpital Saint Louis in Paris, France will join the Skin Ageing & Challenges 2021 Congress which will be held on November 11-12, 2021 in Lisbon, Portugal & Online and will give a presentation entitled ”Skin Aging and Fibroblast Features with a Focus on Mechanical Forces“.

Dr. Michel will highlight the main skin damages due to aging, whether intrinsic or extrinsic, before listing the effective anti-aging strategies to combat age-related dermal and epidermal stigmas. In fact, aging of the skin is only one visible part of this process. It is associated with major healing defects linked in part to the alteration of the biomechanical properties of skin cells, mainly dermal fibroblasts. The immune system, another key component in maintaining skin homeostasis and the efficient healing of wounds, also suffers the effects of time: the consequent skin immunosenescence would limit the anti-infectious and vaccine response, while promoting a pro-tumor environment.
