“In the dermis, endothelial cells are the main components of blood capillaries. Angiogenesis is the process by which new blood vessels are formed, allowing the supply of oxygen and nutrients to the tissues.

There is a progressive decrease in the formation of new blood vessels, leading to a paler complexion. The decrease in the density of blood capillaries with age is due to a decline in AGFs (Angiogenic Growth Factors), signal proteins produced by skin cells that allow the creation of blood vessels from endothelial cells. These are the key factors in vascularization strategies.”
