Photoageing of the skin is a common problem induced by chronic exposure to ultraviolet radiation, causing the early aging of the skin.
The photoaging is characterized by molecular changes and cellular-specific, and is observed, mainly in the areas of skin most exposed to the sun.
Like all organs, the skin undergoes changes associated with the process of chronological ageing.
However, the exposure to the sun accelerates the aging process, triggering specific changes that modify their physical properties, leaving visible signs on the surface of the skin.
The continued exposure to this type of radiation may lead to:
- Hyperplasia, epidermal;
- Uneven pigmentation;
- Telangiectasia (capillaries, thin, red or brown that falls beneath the surface of the skin);
- Elastosis (wrinkling, thickening and intense of the skin);
- Reduction of collagen;
These changes have special significance today, in that the preservation of youthful appearance represents, socially, a requirement for the idealization of beauty.
SUN AND SKIN: THE RELATION OF RISK
Each exposure to the sun can accumulate brands: the most immediate risk is that of sunburn (scalds) and the more serious the cancer to the skin, combined with the premature aging of the skin.
The ultraviolet (UV) radiation, responsible for these effects, it is made up of two types of rays: UVA, which penetrate deeper into the skin, being responsible for photo-aging, and UVB, more superficial and more dangerous causing burns. Both predispose to cancer cutaneous (of the skin).
Before the risk, it is essential that the skin is prepared to receive the sun. What is the synonym to use sunscreen, especially in the hot seasons, but also in the rest of the year.
You don’t even need that is the sun: 80% of the UV through the clouds and the fog, reaching the bare skin with equal severity.
WHAT ARE THE CONSEQUENCES OF PHOTOAGING?
The skin fotoenvelhecida has the features of loss of elasticity, dark spots, or clear, fine wrinkles, and deep, and the change of the surface of the skin, which can display more rough, dry and descamativa. There is also an increase in the development of neoplasms benign and malignant on the skin as a result of photoaging.
The effects of the sun are most visible also through the so-called spots, hyperpigmentation, and signs of photoaging of the skin. Are caused by excess pigmentation (coloring) of the skin, due to the intense action of radiation on the melanin (the substance that gives color to the skin and that protects it from solar radiation):
- Focus on the areas most exposed to sun – face, hands, shoulders, arms and neckline;
- Arise mainly in skins clear;
- Are more common in people who expose themselves excessively to the sun without protection.
If there are changes in color, size, shape, symmetry, the signs of photoaging such as spots of hyperpigmentation are harmless but aesthetically undesirable, since they reveal the early aging of the skin.
HOW TO TREAT PHOTOAGING?
Prevention is the key and should be started very early to implement various measures such as sun protection and daily care such as cleaning and hydration.
However, for the aging face there are various treatments characterized by different degrees of complexity and risk associated with it. The primary treatment and less harmful to the skin is to the protection (use of sunscreen).
