Abstract :

Aging is a continuous and irreversible process which affects skin and other organs. Skin aging which is the result of changes in the function and structure of the dermis is characterized by thinning, drying and loss of elasticity. It results in significant morbidity in elderly, particularly if associated with other comorbid systemic diseases. In comparison with young skin, geriatric skin is more prone to different dermatoses, so that 13.3% of skin disorders are seen in elderly persons over 60 years of age. On the other hand, there is association between systemic disorders and skin problems in general population. Herein, we talk about cutaneous ageing in terms of definition, epidemiology, histopathology, ethiopathogenesis, prevention and management.
