GLOSSARY

Is there a term from the field of dermatology and cosmetics that you do not understand? Would you like to know what it means? View the full definition from the La Roche-Posay glossary.

Glycation

Glycation is the result of an endogenous, spontaneous reaction between the sugar that is transported in the blood and the dermal fibres (collagen and elastin). It causes a hardening and deterioration of the support tissues, damaging the dermal fibres. The dermis gradually loses its elasticity and tone. Wrinkles appear on the surface.

This word belongs to the category Signs of age, wrinkles, firmness.
