Skin Sun damage continues even after dark


Much of the damage that UV radiation does to skin occurs hours after sun exposure, a team of Yale-led researchers have concluded in a recent study

Douglas E. Brash, clinical professor of therapeutic radiology and dermatology at Yale School of Medicine and his co-authors first exposed mouse and human melanocyte cells to radiation from a UV lamp. The radiation caused a type of DNA damage known as a cyclobutane dimer (CPD), in which two DNA “letters” attach and bend the DNA, preventing the information it contains from being read correctly. To the researchers’ surprise, the melanocytes not only generated CPDs immediately, but continued to do so hours after UV exposure ended. Cells without melanin generated CPDs only during the UV exposure.

This finding, pulished in Science Journal, showed that melanin had both carcinogenic and protective effects. “If you look inside adult skin, melanin does protect against CPDs. It does act as a shield,” said Brash, also a member of Yale Cancer Center. “But it is doing both good and bad things.”

This skin treatment can be provided alone or may be combined alongside, with other rejuvenation techniques. For example to treat skin complexion, facial volume loss with Restylane to treat deep lines and superficial or fine lines.  Then it may be combined with Botox (wrinkle injections). Finally the most important thing one should consider says Satya, is whether your treatment provider physician has plenty of experience in skin resurfacing procedures and the right type of tools to do it.
