Environmental pollution and skin aging.
Summary of "Environmental pollution and skin aging."
Extrinsic skin aging is the skin aging process induced by environmental factors. The most prominent environmental factor leading to extrinsic skin aging is the sun; therefore extrinsic skin aging is also known as photoaging. However, numerous studies in recent years have shown that smoking leads to extrinsic skin aging. Further, very recently it has been shown, that environmental pollution by traffic is also associated with the occurrence of signs of extrinsic skin aging. Thus, in preventive skin aging strategies the long-term exposure towards air pollution by traffic must also be considered.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
The process of aging due to changes in the structure and elasticity of the skin over time. It may be a part of physiological aging or it may be due to the effects of ultraviolet radiation, usually through exposure to sunlight.
The study of ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION and the toxic effects of ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTANTS on the ECOSYSTEM. The term was coined by Truhaut in 1969.
Plasma Skin Regeneration
A cosmetic technique that uses PLASMA GASES in therapeutic treatment to help achieve skin REJUVENATION or REGENERATION and delay SKIN AGING.
The presence of contaminants or pollutant substances in the air (AIR POLLUTANTS) that interfere with human health or welfare, or produce other harmful environmental effects. The substances may include GASES; PARTICULATE MATTER; or volatile ORGANIC CHEMICALS.
The characteristics of skins in different aging processes were obtained by optical coherence tomography (OCT) single scattering model, and their optical parameters were analyzed quantitatively. Signif...
Skin aging involves degradation of extracellular matrix (ECM) in both the epidermal and dermal layers, it leaves visible signs on the surface of skin and the physical properties of the skin are modifi...
The last quarter of the twentieth century had witnessed a global surge in awakening against the unabated menace of environmental pollution. Among the various types of environmental pollution, water po...
Studies in model organisms suggest that aged cells can be functionally rejuvenated, but whether this concept applies to human skin is unclear. Here we apply 3'-end sequencing for expression quantifica...
Abstract Skin, being exposed directly to the environment, represents a unique model for demonstrating the synergistic effects of intrinsic and extrinsic factors on the aging process. Ultraviolet radia...
We are seeking healthy female volunteers to determine if multinutrient supplementation affects visible signs of skin aging as well as blood measurements of aging. We are seeking smokers a...
Skin aging is a multifactorial process involving the 3 layers of the skin: Epidermis, dermis and hypodermis. Skin aging process involves among others: skin roughness (epidermis), skin dysc...
In this study, test persons with chronic excessive UV radiation and a control group are examined by multiphoton laser imaging and biophysical methods in order to evaluate the dermal fiber...
Beautiful skin requires maintenance of proper care. Skin exercise, protections from direct sunlight or harsh wind, and maintaining a healthy diet are some of the ways of having a good and...
The objectives of this study are to evaluate the safety and efficacy of 0.5% retinol (Vitamin A) versus it's vehicle cream in the treatment and prevention of skin aging and Bateman's Purpu...
