Frequently Asked Questions About Aging Skin

Various proteins which provide elasticity to the skin (elastin) deteriorate. Glands that lubricate the skin dry up. Water content decreases as well as a “filler” called ground substance. The collagen content of the skin decreases and the collagen itself becomes deformed. They can be accelerated by sun exposure, smoking, and other forms of trauma. The process moves faster in individuals of fair complexion due to their susceptibility to ultraviolet sun damage. In the end, the rate of visual aging is the sum of normal biologic aging plus alterable factors (eg. sun exposure). True reversal of aging with various treatments is minimal, at best. However, with a combination of prophylactic care and interventional skin care treatment, skin can reclaim some lost years and look more youthful.

There is no cream or treatment that actually reverses aging of the skin. A wrinkle cream or some direct treatment may give skin a more youthful look (and there’s nothing wrong with that!) but will not slow the actual aging process.

Most wrinkle creams are mild irritants that cause swelling in the skin and thus plump out wrinkles. They are commonly combined with an exfoliant to remove the superficial dead cells in the epidermis, the outermost layer of skin.

The retinoins (Renova, Retin-A) increase metabolic activity in the skin (and thus the volume) as well as increase the generation of new cells in the epidermis. They are best used with an exfoliant as the epidermis will build up and begin to visibly peel. Patients respond differently to these topical drugs and should be managed by someone familiar with dosage regulation for best results.

Quinones are bleaching agents for treatment of darkened areas. They are commonly combined with other topical products for best results. Not everyone benefits from quinones.

Various other products are available with questionable benefits. This includes collagen and vitamin products. They are, however, not harmful and often are blended with good moisturizers or sunblocks.

There are a variety of topical medications that help maintain the vitality of skin. Unfortunately for the patient, there are a great number of them in various concentrations that have different effects on different types of skin. These effects are even more diverse when the medications are used in combination with one another. For this reason, it is wise to have topical skin care supervised by a skin care specialist. Patients should also visit a dermatologist periodically for examination of the skin and a review of the solutions that are being used.

Retinoins (Retin-A) and other related compounds increase turnover of the outer layer of skin and enhance blood supply to the same area. Patients sensitivity to these medications varies dramatically. Therefore, doses must be carefully individualized. Furthermore, these compounds come in various forms of administration that may have specific benefits as well as disadvantages from one patient to the next.

Various mild acids (glycolic acid) help dissolve the bonds between cells in the epidermis (the outer layer of skin). This allows the dead cells in this layer to shed more easily. Enhancement of exfoliation is particulary useful in combination with Retin-A since that medication may cause the epidermis to build up. The acids are mildly irritating and thereby enhance blood supply to the area of application to a certain degree. Other topical medications will penetrate better in the presence of these acids since they are loosening up the connections between the dead cells.

Bleaching agents may be useful in elimination unwanted brown patches. They are a family of drugs called quinones which compete with melanin (the brown color in skin) in the melanocyte (the cell that produces melanin). Quinones are used both as treatment and as prophylaxis. Patients anticipating resurfacing (such as with the laser) may be pretreated with a quinone if they are felt to be at risk for hyperpigmentation as a consequence of the resurfacing treatment.
Topical vitamins (such as vitamin C) have been proposed as rejuvenating agents. Although there might be benefit, there is for now little scientific information backing up their use. It is unlikely that much harm will come from their application but they do cost money- probably better spent on a good sunscreen. Every week it seems some new product hits the market. Patients should not subscribe to the use of these agents before checking with a skin care specialist or physician. Although most are harmless (and useless), they do merit professional scrutiny before application.
