Exploring the Science Behind Aging and Inflammation

By: Our Team

7/1/2024

As we age, our skin undergoes various changes, including a decrease in its ability to repair and regenerate itself.  In dermatology, the term "inflammaging" refers to the chronic, low-grade inflammation that occurs in aging skin.  Inflammaging is believed to be a result of a combination of factors, including cumulative sun exposure, environmental pollutants, genetic predisposition, and the natural aging process itself.

This chronic inflammation can manifest in various ways, such as increased redness, sensitivity, dryness, and a decrease in skin elasticity. Inflammaging is also associated with the development of age-related skin conditions like wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, and loss of skin firmness.

At OneSkin Dermatology in Chambersburg, PA, we may recommend skincare products containing anti-inflammatory ingredients, such as antioxidants and soothing agents, as well as lifestyle changes like sun protection and a healthy diet to minimize inflammation and support skin health. Additionally, certain dermatological procedures, such as laser treatments and chemical peels, may help to rejuvenate aging skin and mitigate the effects of inflammaging.
