Skin undergoes structural degradation in response to both the passing of years and exposure to the sun.1–4 The degeneration of collagen, a component in the dermal extracellular matrix, is a major factor in skin alteration with aging. But the mechanism differs depending on the cause. Researchers have not yet establishing a quantitative relationship between collagen changes and different types of aging. Here, we describe work aimed at quantitatively linking collagen alteration with aging… Expand
