Although not often thought of as an organ, human skin is actually the largest organ of the body, and is also known as the integumentary system. Damage to this vital organ can occur over time due to UV radiation from sun exposure, neglect, and the aging process. As we grow older, the layers of the skin age in such a way that less oxygen and vital nutrients are able to provide their “anti-aging” effects. The aging process is accelerated by neglect and sun exposure which can be manifested by changes in pigmentation, ruptured blood vessels, uneven tone, loss of elasticity, and of course, the dreaded wrinkles.

There are procedures and products available that are able to correct or slow down these changes, including microdermabrasion, chemical peels, laser treatment, and cosmeceuticals. The actual biological process behind these treatments is critical if they are to be effective; there are many products that claim to stop or even “reverse” the aging process, yet have little in the way of scientific backing.
