Fibroblast

Did you know… fibroblasts are the most common cells in connective tissue?

According to the Collins Dictionary, the definition for fibroblast is “a cell in connective tissue that synthesizes collagen”.

Fibroblasts are tiny cells found in the lower levels of the dermis. As you get older the number of fibroblasts begin to decrease, meaning your collagen and elastin and more begins to reduce leading to wrinkles.

They’re very important in keeping the structure of our skin elastic and healthy. Fibroblasts create the extracellular matrix which gives your skin its structure.
