Ageing of human skin may result from both thepassage of time (intrinsic ageing) and fromcumulative exposure to external influences(extrinsic ageing) such as ultraviolet radiation(UVR) which promotes wrinkle formation andloss of tissue elasticity. Whilst both ageingprocesses are associated with phenotypicchanges in cutaneous cells, we summarize, inthis chapter, related mechanisms involved, discusson potentential treatment until now disposable,and suggest preventive measures.
