During aging, human skin undergoes profound alterations of its biomechanical properties, and more particularly a loss of elasticity that results in skin sagging. Dermal elastic fibers represent the primary components that support tissue compliance and resilience. But as time goes by, their organization and functionality decline, which makes them a preferred target for cosmetic anti-aging strategies.
