Keratinocytes: Makes up 90% of cells in the epidermis and produce the protein keratin. Until recently they held little value in cosmetic treatments and were severely damaged in ablative treatments such as microdermabrasion. Most facial rejuvenation treatments commonly target fibroblasts in the dermis layer. New scientific movements have led to updated approaches in skincare as keratinocytes not only help to thicken the epidermis but also communicate with the fibroblasts below to help ensure healthy collagen production.
Microneedling allows treatments to access the dermis and fibroblasts directly with very little damage to the keratinocytes in the epidermis.
Fibroblasts: Cells located in the dermis. Were once considered the “holy grail” in the cosmetic industry, as the production of collagen is a key goal in creating younger looking skin.
