During aging, there is a gradual decrease in the ability to maintain skeletal muscle function and mass. This condition is called " sarcopenia ", and may be distinct from atrophy in its pathophysiology. While the exact cause of sarcopenia is unknown, it may be induced by a combination of a gradual failure in the " satellite cells " which help to regenerate skeletal muscle fibers, and a decrease in sensitivity to or the availability of critical secreted growth factors which are necessary to maintain muscle mass and satellite cell survival. 
Early warning signs of skin atrophy include tension or tightness in the skin, pain, pitting, dryness and a papery texture or appearance, and increased visibility of blood vessels in the skin. The face is often the first place people notice the problem, because the skin there is more sensitive and also more visible. Patients can meet with a dermatologist to explore possible causes and talk about potential treatment options, including medications or changes to a skincare regimen like using gentler soaps and being more aggressive about moisturizing the skin.
