AGING SKIN

As the body ages, the appearance and characteristics of the skin alter.

Ageing is accelerated in those areas exposed to sunlight, a process known as photoageing.

Photoageing is due to damage caused by short wavelength ultraviolet radiation (UVB) injury to the outside layers of the skin (epidermis), longer wavelength ultraviolet radiation (UVA) to the middle layers (dermis) and infra-red A radiation to the deeper dermis and subcutaneous tissue. Cell damage occurs because of the formation of reactive oxygen species.

Ageing changes are particularly apparent on the face, and occur at an early age for those who have spent much time outdoors, especially if they are fair skinned (skin phototypes I and II).

Ageing of the skin is also accelerated by smoking – long term smokers have more facial lines than non-smokers of the same age, and tend to have a yellowish sallow complexion. Smoking may also increase the chance of skin cancers.

PHOTOAGEING CHANGES

Photoageing or sun damage results in fine lines and wrinkles, discolouration and textural changes. The epidermis becomes thinner so the skin easily blisters, tears and grazes. The skin feels dry because it is less able to hold onto water.

Yellow thickened bumps (solar elastisos or heliosis) are due to tangled masses of damaged elastin protein in the dermis. There is also increased dermal collagen due to scarring from repeated inflammation (sunburn, acne and other skin diseases). The thick dermis loses elasticity and is weaker than normal.
