Photoaging: Premature Aging of the Skin

[fa icon='calendar'] May 29, 2019 8:00:00 AM / by Dermatology Center for Skin Health, PLLC posted in Cosmetic Procedures

The skin is made up of three layers: the epidermis (outer layer), dermis (middle layer) and the subcutis (basement layer). The middle layer contains collagen, elastic, blood capillaries, nerve endings and other fibers that give your skin the structure it needs to hold up. These structures are what give your skin a youthful appearance; however, these structures are also what can be damaged by UV radiation. When these structures are damaged, your skin can lose its youthful appearance and cause you to prematurely age, also known as photoaging.

Learn more about photoaging, including signs of photoaging, where it can appear, as well as how to prevent it.
