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

Aging is accelerated in skin exposed to sunlight (ultraviolet radiation), a process known as 'photoaging.'

This is particularly apparent on the face, and occurs at an early age in fair skinned people who have spent much time outdoors.

The result of photoaging is lines and wrinkles, brown freckles called lentigos, yellowing of the skin, dilated capillaries (telangiectases), blackheads and whiteheads (senile comedones) and a dry complexion.

Aging skin should be regularly examined for precancerous and cancerous lesions.

Photodamaged skin can be treated laser therapy.
