Skin matrix is a framework that holds the skin together and consists mainly of collagen and elastin. The skin matrix is responsible for the skin’s mechanical properties, including firmness, strength, suppleness and elasticity. On one hand, skin matrix is continuously synthesized by fibroblasts by producing Collagen and Elastin. On the other hand, whenever it is damaged, malformed or worn out, skin matrix is broken down by the enzymes called matrix metalloproteinases (MMP) and then recycled. If breakdown/recycling stops, damaged matrix will accumulate, leading to skin imperfections.
In a healthy, youthful skin, the synthesis and degradation of the matrix are in balance: so for best results, we should control MMPs while stimulating collagen, elastin, and Hyaluronic Acid biosynthesis. Inflammation increases the levels of MMP enzymes whereas anti-inflammatory agents have the opposite effect. Pain and inflammation are the body’s way of saying “help”. While it is important to understand the underlying causes, painkillers can help to calm down excessive and harmful inflammation and take the body out of ‘emergency’ mode.
