Sample Report: Skin Collagen Breakdown
Skin elasticity is the skin's ability to stretch and revert to its original form without developing wrinkles and imperfections. Your skin's smoothness, firmness and elasticity depends on the balance between collagen synthesis and its breakdown.
Studies shows that genetic variants increase activity of MMPs contributing to accelerated loss of collagen and premature skin aging.
An increased collagen breakdown process (due to aging, environmental factors and genetic variations in collagen breakdown enzymes) results in lower collagen levels, premature wrinkles and skin imperfections.
