What is elastin?
Elastin is a protein that coils and recoils like a spring within the elastic fibers of connective tissue in the body – like your skin. Elastin is what makes your skin, heart, lungs and many other tissues elastic so that they can get snap back into shape after stretching or contracting.
Why is elastin important?
Elastin works together in your skin with collagen. Elastin provides elasticity and collagen (another protein in your skin) provides structure to keep your skin smooth and firm.
What is the effect of a lack of elastin as we age?
Starting in our mid 20’s, elastin starts to break down and become less elastic and lose its spring… think of a lumpy mattress as the springs become old and lose their ability to recoil.
How do you build new elastin?
Elastin is normally no longer made after puberty and aging begins. In order to build new elastin, you need to cause a certain amount of damage to the skin by heating for example, so that the elastin starts to break down. Then a healing process can begin to build new elastin.
