CHAPTER 2: Photodamage in Skin of Color

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The changing trends in global diversity emphasize the need for skin type-specific expertize. This chapter explores structural variations in skin of color, from clinically apparent to microscopic differences, and examines how these contribute to the unique photobiological response exemplified in ethnic skin. Herein, we discuss the acute and chronic effects of the solar spectrum on skin of color, from ultraviolet and visible light to infrared radiation. In light of these structural and functional differences, we also review special considerations in the classification and management of photoaging in this population.
