I literally explained it as simple as possible, Fibroblast cells are the main skin cell and they produce most of the bottom layers of the skin with proteins such as collagen and elastin. They also keep hair soft and shiny with keratin. Then you said, “But some people have rubbery skin, or their muscles turn into mush, so you’re point makes no sense!” I have researched this topic for almost 2 years now. I’m sorry you have gone through this for 15 years but you are definitely making this a more complicated issue than it has to be, at least when it comes to skin,
It is ALWAYS better to have an idea of what has happened to your body and appearance rather than tell yourself it’s this foreign evil enemy. Your fibroblast cells are not functioning and are not dividing because they are AR-dependent cells and 5-ar inhibiting drugs modify the androgen receptor at a transcriptional level.
A role for the androgen receptor in Collagen content of the skin.
" Evidence for receptor-dependent response to dihydrotestosterone in cultured human fibroblasts."
(Study explains how dihydrotestosterone binds to the androgen receptor in fibroblasts and allows the fibroblast to synthesize proteins (collagen, keratin, elastin, hylauronic acid (moisturizes skin))
