Light Emitting Diode (LED) for the Treatment of Wrinkles
The purpose of this study was to determine whether light emitting diode (LED) therapy can improve skin appearance of human subjects with aged/photoaged skin. A reduction in rhytid depth as well as in skin surface roughness and in the degree of elastosis after LED treatments was expected.

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.
Plasma Skin Regeneration
A cosmetic technique that uses PLASMA GASES in therapeutic treatment to help achieve skin REJUVENATION or REGENERATION and delay SKIN AGING.
Abnormal responses to sunlight or artificial light due to extreme reactivity of light-absorbing molecules in tissues. It refers almost exclusively to skin photosensitivity, including sunburn, reactions due to repeated prolonged exposure in the absence of photosensitizing factors, and reactions requiring photosensitizing factors such as photosensitizing agents and certain diseases. With restricted reference to skin tissue, it does not include photosensitivity of the eye to light, as in photophobia or photosensitive epilepsy.
National Institute On Aging (u.s.)
Component of the NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH. Through basic and clinical biomedical research and training, it conducts and supports research into the nature of the aging process and diseases associated with the later stages of life. The Institute was established in 1974.
An autosomal recessive disorder that causes premature aging in adults, characterized by sclerodermal skin changes, cataracts, subcutaneous calcification, muscular atrophy, a tendency to diabetes mellitus, aged appearance of the face, baldness, and a high incidence of neoplastic disease.
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...
This will be a prospective, randomized, single blinded, controlled study in a single center setting to assess the effect of either phototherapy with the Embar® light therapy or sham irrad...
Photomodulation is a process which manipulates or regulates cell activity using light sources without thermal effect. Different studies have investigated the use of non-thermal low dose li...
Patients need vitamin D which is normally produced in the skin in response to ultraviolet light from the sun. Vitamin D is important for calcium absorption and good bone health. Physicians...
This research study was designed to determine the effect on port wine stains (PWS) of liposomal benzoporphyrin derivative monoacid (BPD-MA) termed verteporfin (distributed for medical indi...
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 a...

Chronic post-ischemic pain (CPIP) is an animal model of CRPS-I developed using a 3-h ischemia-reperfusion injury of the rodent hind paw. The contribution of local endothelin to nociception has been ev...
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...
